Skincare and Anti-Aging: My Ode to the Power of Green TeaRachel Matos
I’m all about making my beauty routines as relaxing as possible. And nothing says relaxing like a cup of green tea right before bed. Green tea is known for its health and digestion benefits. But did you know it’s also an amazing beauty product? It’s antioxidants properties help protect the skin from harmful free radicals, which are known to damage healthy cells. They deplete your skin of oxygen and break down the levels of collagen. And I really want to keep my collagen levels high for as long as I can!
After I remove the tea bag from my cup, I put the bag in the refrigerator and let it cool down for about 30 minutes to an hour. Depending on when I finish drinking my tea. I then place the damp tea bags over my eye and … relax for about 15 minutes.
You will start to notice a difference if done regularly. This treatment helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. Whether you drink several cups of tea a day or use the bags over your eyes, the benefits (inside and out) will make a noticeable difference in your skin.
