Benefits of Green Tea for Skin

Green tea is an ancient herbal beverage made from Camellia sinensis leaves that has been used in China for millennia to cure just about anything from headaches to bad mood. But aside from the common health benefits, green tea is also beneficial for our skin.

Green tea is packed with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, as well as polyphenols. In addition to that, it also has B vitamins, manganese, folate, magnesium and, of course, caffeine.

Here are some of the most common skin benefits of green tea:


Reduces acne and pimples

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties green helps in calming down problematic skin, including pimples and acne. According to a study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, “EGCG [the main polyphenol found in green tea] significantly improved acne in an 8-week randomized, split-face, clinical trial, and was well tolerated.”


Helps with dark circles and puffy eyes

Two main ingredients found in green tea, caffeine and tannins, can help reduce puffiness and dark circles. Namely, caffeine and tannins help shrink the blood vessels therefore reducing the swell, and with the help of vitamin K it also diminishes the dark color.


Delays skin aging

Green tea is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols which are known to reverse the aging signs by fighting off free radicals which tend to speed up the aging process. That being said, green tea can also help with sun damaged skin, fine wrinkles, and it can give the skin a healthy glow.
