Herbal Teas That Are Beneficial For Your Skin

Posted on Wed, Mar 16, 2022 by Amit Bambral

Herbal teas can help if consumed at least once a week along with maintaining a healthy diet. The benefits of tea can be enjoyed in various ways, including drinking it or applying it directly to your skin. Herbal teas are an excellent addition to your daily skincare routine. Teas with aromatic properties, such as green, black, and peppermint tea can help to tighten pores. In addition, tea can be soothing when you're sick, relaxing when you need to sleep, or energizing if you don't drink caffeinated beverages such as coffee. There are a number of different kinds of tea available, each of which works in its unique way to keep your skin looking great. Take a look below to find the best herbal tea for your skin.

Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is not only fragrant, but it also contains antioxidant and antibacterial properties that support a healthy immune system. It helps to relax and elongate the blood vessels, allowing a plentiful supply of nutrients to reach the skin. This can slow down the aging process of your skin, speed up wound healing, and even treat skin conditions like acne.

Green Tea

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard the benefits of drinking green tea. Green tea's high antioxidant content is one of the main reasons why health professionals recommend drinking more of it. This type of tea has anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties in addition to its delicious flavour. Green tea helps to reduce inflammation, which is common in acne-prone and sensitive skin. It keeps skin cells healthy and can help protect the body from UV radiation-induced sun damage.

Variety of Herbal Teas

Black Tea

Tannins and polyphenols such as theaflavins and thearubigins, as well as catechins, are found in black tea and are primarily responsible for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The ability of black tea to block and scavenge free radicals positively demonstrates its antioxidant properties. These antioxidants help tone the skin, speed up skin cell regeneration, and protect against free radicals that cause premature aging.

Rose Tea

A cup of rose tea strengthens the immune system and encourages collagen production, the protein that keeps our skin and hair healthy. This beverage also contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties known to aid acne treatment. Vitamin C, which has antioxidant properties, is abundant in rose petals. Nutritionists believe that vitamins acquired through foods are better absorbed than vitamins achieved through tablets or probiotics, and rose tea is a tasty, slightly sweet alternative to supplements. Rose tea, rich in Vitamins A and E, hydrates and tightens skin, minimizing the visual effect of lines and eye bags.

Matcha Green Tea

As a result of its high chlorophyll content, matcha has a vibrant green colour. Photosynthesis, the chemical reaction that converts sunlight into energy, requires these natural plant compounds. Remarkably, chlorophyll can protect our skin from the sun and slow the aging process, resulting in fewer age spots and sun damage. Chlorophyll also shields our skin from environmental contaminants and toxins that can clog our pores.
