Green Tea and Your Skin: The Real Deal Benefits

It’s no secret that green tea is known for being able to positively impact just about anything when it comes to the human body. From protecting against cancer and heart disease to being a natural weight-loss aid, there are a ton of pluses that come with consuming this herb, including its benefits on the skin.

Green tea comes from the Camellia sinuses plant and is one of the richest documented sources of antioxidants. Polyphenols, which are a class of bioflavonoids, are known for their antioxidant and antiviral properties. The specific type of polyphenol in green tea, epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG), has been shown in studies to protect body cells by shielding the cell’s DNA from hydrogen oxide, a potent free radical known for causing damage to cells and tissues which can result in premature aging of the skin. Green tea has been shown to be 25 to 100 times more potent than Vitamins C and E in terms of antioxidant activity as well.

Green tea also reduces inflammation of the skin that can often result in sporadic breakouts or cancerous changes. It also fights insulin resistance and the hormones known for causing acne breakouts. The antiviral and antibacterial benefits of green tea also carry the same acne-fighting benefits when consumed on a regular basis.

So how much green tea should you drink? Epidemiological studies say that consuming 3 to 6 cups per day can do wonders; especially if acne is a big issue on your list. If you prefer the supplement route, check out your local natural food store for alternatives that may be more suited to your lifestyle. 

While drinking green tea on a regular basis isn’t the one-stop-shop solution to maintaining clear and flawless skin, it’s definitely a step in the right direction if the goal is to take care of yourself and be your best you. We’ll drink to that!
