The Secret To Younger Looking Skin

Many anti aging enthusiasts swear by using products with a green tea extract. That's fine but why not go straight to the source. Tea was popular in ancient time s as a herbal drink and is labeled under the "health food" banner in some quarters.

It has many benefits including detoxification qualities. A good cup of tea can apparently help fight cancer, prevent heart disease, gum disease, and help with weight loss as well. But what about skin care?

Tea also has great qualities in maintaining good skin quality. There are polyphenols in tea that do a lot of the work and these are generally called “catechins”. These catechins perform the bulk of the work and believe me, there are a lot of different catechins in tea, especially green tea. In fact, green tea has almost 20 times the amount of catechins in it as black tea.

Keeping skin healthy requires a good amount of help from within the body. Polyphenols help maintain a healthy aspect inside the body. Tea increases the antioxidant quality of your skin and even your blood by allowing it to take on more oxygen and breathe easier, so naturally the higher amount of polyphenols you have working for you the greater antioxidant quality your skin has.

So with the fortunes spent on anti aging, could it be one of the best defenses against premature aging is green tea?

Sri Lankan's are used to drink tea as a habit. Are we really drinking green tea or tea waste ?

Let's ask her what she is drinking ?
