Discover the 5 Benefits of matcha green tea for your skin.
Surely by now many of us have heard about the benefits of matcha green tea, but today we want to go deeper into its properties and how it can help us improve the appearance of our skin.
Matcha green tea (powdered tea) contains 137 more antioxidants than regular green tea and up to 5 times more L-theanine, an amino acid with psychoactive effects that stimulate the mind relieves stress in the body, and lower blood pressure.
How can it help us look more beautiful skin?
Due to its high content of antioxidants (called catechins), it slows down the aging produced naturally by the substances that oxidize our cells, commonly also called free radicals, produced in the metabolism of oxygen.
Our body has its defense mechanisms to combat free radicals, however, all help is little to prevent the appearance of the signs of aging present throughout the body.
Incorporating lotions or body creams with matcha tea into our daily routine, we will be helping our skin to fight against aging.
There are many reasons why we can have skin inflammation; allergies, pollution, atopic dermatitis, solar radiation…
This can cause discomfort such as itching, redness, or even promote the appearance of unsightly bags under the eyes.
Magnesium and vitamin K have anti-inflammatory effects that help detoxify, soothe and cleanse the skin, as well as stimulate cell activity and metabolism. Applied topically in gel form we can take advantage of all these advantages effectively and refreshingly at the same time.
Did we already tell you that matcha green tea favors the preservation of collagen?
Well yes, as if that were not enough, it also helps us to have smoother skin and stronger nails. Collagen is the protein on which the firmness and beauty of skin and nails largely depend.
Over time, the body stops producing this protein, so external help is needed to counteract this loss.
Green tea acts as an astringent that shrinks pores, helping to reduce the production of sebum, which is the skin’s natural oil.
Some studies support a 70% reduction in skin oil. Applied topically, this translates into a reduction of almost 60% in acne marks, thus avoiding the use of other more expensive and aggressive products and treatments.
The Journal of the American Medical Association published a report detailing that, after several studies, it was shown that green tea not only has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties but also antibacterial properties, which can have a great impact on alternative treatments for various skin disorders.
Now that you know a little better what this type of tea can do for your skin and your health, we invite you to incorporate it into your daily care routine to take advantage of all these properties and benefits
