Brew your way to brighter skin

Brew your way to brighter skin

What tea should I be drinking this morning?

Could your morning cup of tea help you achieve brighter skin? Perhaps! Teas are full of antioxidants and a lot of goodies that can help boost and strengthen your skin from the inside. Here are a few different types of tea you can try out for better and brighter skin. 

1. Green tea

Packed with free radical-fighting catechins (EGCG), green tea can help you reduce skin damage from the sun and prevent wrinkle formation. It also reactivates dying skin cells and stimulates the growth of new ones — leaving you with a fresh and glowing look on your face.  

2. Chamomile tea

Enough sleep is crucial for healthy skin. Chamomile tea is the tea to turn to whenever you’re not getting a good night’s rest. Not only does it contain relaxing properties to help calm the puffy and tired look on your face, it soothes any redness and irritation as well.

Even better, chamomile acts as a natural skin bleach — lightening your complexion for a natural healthy glow. If you get tired of drinking it, you could use it as a light toner to soften your skin and fade any dark spots or acne scars too. 

3. Peppermint tea

An oily face is not the bright and glowing look we are going for here. The harsh sunlight may make our skin dull and greasy, but peppermint tea can rescue it. Full of menthol, an element that reduces the secretion of oil from your sebaceous glands and encourages cell turnover, peppermint tea can help you work towards an oil-free and freshened look. The antioxidants in it help to clear your pores and rejuvenate your skin as well.
