Go green with Green Tea

Go green with Green Tea

Imagine a country of unfathomable distances, of an endless scroll of experiences, a country of new starts... When I think of that, I think of China. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of China? There’s the culture, the cuisine, the traditional architecture, clothing, the Chinese gardens, the famous historical figures like Confucius and Liu Bei, Feng Shui and many, many more… Also, let’s not forget about its natural wonders.

I would like to talk to you about one of the most beneficial plants that originates from this ancient country - one that we use in many of our products; a plant that was also used in medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health, and regulate body temperature. 

I would like to talk to you about green tea. 

Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves and buds. It contains one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any tea. Natural chemicals called polyphenols (micronutrients packed with antioxidants) in tea are thought to provide its anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. Green tea is approximately 20-45 percent polyphenols in weight, 60-80 percent of which are catechins such as EGCG. Catechins are antioxidants that are said to help prevent cell damage.

And so, we arrive at the first part of our topic: how is green tea beneficial for our skin? Then we later move on to the next question: how can we help the environment by using these products made of natural and organic ingredients?

Believe me when I tell you that one of the first things another person notices about you is your skin. So let's see how skin can be taken care of and improved by using green tea as part of your skin routine. You might have a cup of warm green tea during the day or a matcha for a quick energy boost without the coffee jitters, thanks to the L-Theanine green tea contains, but have you ever thought of using this natural ingredient topically?  

What we know for sure is that it is a pretty effective remedy for a bunch of dermatological conditions.

  • It is anti-inflammatory, it has the ability to soothe sunburn or smaller cuts.
  • It can help reduce skin redness, swelling, irritation or even revitalize dying skin cells as in, minimizing signs of aging!
  • It is also a really good moisturizer and last but not least it treats one of our worst enemies, acne.

Green tea has polyphenols which help reduce sebum production. Sebum is an oily substance produced by our body`s sebaceous glands. If the skin is very oily then the body tends to produce a larger amount of fat-like molecules that make up sebum. So it's also used to control the growth of bacteria that is the cause of acne.

It is actually quite an overperformer, since it protects and corrects as well.

But what is even better is, since it’s a plant, you can be sure it’s 100% natural. It has no chemical additives. It’s harmless for our planet because it has virtually no negative ecological footprint.

Standard skincare and makeup ingredients can affect the wildlife and the environment negatively. The more artificial chemicals are used, the more of it can get into the air and water. Organic beauty products have fewer chemicals and the ingredients are mostly grown on organic farms. As a result, sustainable ingredients are produced with little or no negative impact on the environment.  

We have our minds set to try and sustain the planet we call home. To leave it better off than when we joined it.

If You love Your body and Your skin, then We will help You take good care of it!   

Below you can find our own products with green tea as an ingredient and you will also find a detailed description about each one so you can decide which one fits your facial routine best, we promise they are all amazing.

In closing, imagine a place with unfathomable distances, of an endless scroll of experiences, a place of new starts. When I think of that, I think of our planet.

Thank you!

Love the Glow, Share the Glow!
