In the year 805, Japanese monks were introduced to green tea while in China, and it was during this time that they learned of its wonderful healing and medicinal qualities. The Japanese continued to drink green tea ritualistically to help them focus and meditate, and over time many wonders of green tea were revealed, including its skin benefits when applied topically.

Green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinesis plant and has been used for 1000s of years throughout history. This tea is a great resource for skincare, and has been implemented in many facial care products such as this nighttime skin elixir. Green tea is high in vitamin E, an essential vitamin for those seeking to hydrate their skin. It also contains vitamin B2, which helps to keep skin firm through collagen maintenance and to therefore produce youthful looking, healthy skin.

Including green tea in facial skincare products is also effective in reducing inflammation. The tea has a high content of polyphenols, which are anti-inflammatory and reduce redness while giving the skin a healthy glow. These properties aid in healing acne, as polyphenols are known to reduce the secretion of sebum, a process that will intensify acne irritation. The caffeine and tannins in green tea are able to reduce swelling, so when it comes to facial skincare, applying an undereye product that lists green tea as an ingredient is great for soothing the puffiness under your eyes. Not only is green tea an amazing aid in reduction of inflammation and swelling, but it can even help to heal and smooth small cuts or sunburns on the face.

Green tea can be found in a multitude of skincare products and is a great natural option for those seeking acne and redness reduction, or simply for its healing and soothing properties. Green tea has been used by many cultures throughout the ages and remains a reliable resource not only as a calming beverage, but also as a topically applied ingredient in your skincare routine.
