All-Pervasive Existence

With its humble origins in China, Tea, today, is consumed by more than half the globe. Caffeine has a prominent role to play in its widespread fame. Off late, green tea fad is touching new horizons. With umpteen number of articles on the Benefits of Green Tea and the promotion of the same by celebrities on their Instagram accounts, Green tea is becoming an inevitable part of a number of health conscious people’s lives. So what is so special about green tea that makes it a must in every girl’s skin care regime

Decode the Mystery Behind Benefits of Green Tea for Skin?

Its increasing popularity is a result of the flavonoid phytochemicals found in it. These are also known as polyphenols belonging to subtype, catechins. With four main types of catechins including the most important, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), green tea boasts of almost 21% more catechins than black tea. This magical ingredient plays a major role in protecting one’s skin from unwanted changes like ageing, allergies, acne, and inflammation.

The Mechanism Behind its Benefits

The little tea bag, lying unused and many times cursed by us for its awful taste, is an excellent remedy for acne. How? Let’s see. 

The principal causes related to the occurrence of acne breakouts are inflammation, insulin resistance, and hormonal disturbances. What green tea does is it shoots dead all these causes at once leaving your skin smooth and clear. 

The EGCG that we spoke of earlier helps in increasing body’s antioxidant capacity thereby reducing lipid peroxidation. In fact, according to research, EGCG is found to be more effective than vitamins C and E with respect to the antioxidant activity. It is one of the best defenders against ageing. 

As green tea reduces insulin resistance and aids in lowering sugar levels, it is helpful in preventing hormonal acne. In its fight against DHT, the main culprit for acne breakouts, green tea prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT. 

I am sure listening to all the information, you are now ready with your green tea bag and some boiled water.

Skin is one of the most delicate and vulnerable parts and therefore extra care is what it deserves. But, cosmetics and their towering prices lower the heads of many. Here are four ways to use green tea as an alternative to expensive skin care products.

Pierre Joubert

This site is a hommage to Pierre Joubert, one of the greatest illustrators ever lived. He was born in Paris (june 27, 1910 and died in La Rochelle on January 13, 2002). On Wikipedia is suggested that (quote): ¨He had a controversial site. He has been tarred with collaboration with the Nazis during Worldwar II¨. Documents, however, have proved that this is not true. Intimi have confirmed that.
