Why a relaxing brew of herbal tea can also have beautiful effects on skin health and radiance.
The benefits of a relaxing, delicious herbal tea
Did you know that herbal teas not only promote calm, hydrate our body and taste great, but certain blends can encourage healthy, glowing skin? “The health, texture and appearance of skin – our largest organ - is certainly not a one-trick approach. “It is dependent upon a number of things,” lists naturopath Coryn Smith, “sun exposure, toxins, maturity as well as our nutrient profile, digestion and hormonal system.” Herbal tea can be e ective on skin health because it has a broad approach and the ingredients are absorbed from the inside. Teas with antioxidants can protect our skin, reduce wrinkle formation, and help inflammation and eczema, and other herbs do wonders for digestion and detox. Smith recommends three cups a day for therapeutic benefits, but suggests checking in with your local herbalist for a personalised approach.
