Sip your way to GREAT SKIN!
Rich in antioxidants, tea is one of the best multi-purpose beauty staples
properties of herbal teas have been used for thousands of years by the Chinese, with fruity infusions also dating back as far as ancient Egyptian times.
And now, as they become an increasingly popular choice when making a brew, why not sip on something that’s not only delicious, but will do your skin good too?
Green tea is packed full of antioxidants that help keep skin clear. Try adding some grated fresh ginger to it, along with a splash of honey and lemon juice for a great detox tea. A daily cup of dandelion tea will help protect your skin against pollution, while hibiscus tea will even out skin tone and add moisture from within.
In Ayurveda tulsi tea is highly regarded for its ability to help the body cope with stress and the damage it can cause the skin. Jasmine tea helps stop the signs of aging, while peppermint encourages cell renewal so skin stays looking healthy and young.
You don’t just have to drink teas to benefit your skin either – try making a lovely cup of chamomile, freezing it into ice cubes and then using them as a cold compress on puffy eyes. Or, after making calendula tea, add the flowers to a pot of natural yoghurt to create an all-natural detox face mask.
