The benefits of tea in beauty products

Clean makeup and skincare products are becoming more sought-after within the cosmetic industry. 

Along with this demand comes the growing desire for unique ingredients such as tea in such products. Tea isn’t a one-trick pony. It’s an excellent beauty staple courtesy of mother nature. 

While drinking tea has tremendous health benefits such as contributing to heart health, being a great source of antioxidants, and hydrating the body, topically applying products infused with tea has incredible advantages for the skin as well. 

Keep reading for a breakdown about the benefits of green and white tea in beauty products to help you refresh your skin — as well as your cosmetics.

Let's talk green tea

Made from the Camellia Sinensis plant, green tea in beauty products has countless benefits for your skin. 

Here are some of the ways green tea can benefit your skin when infused with beauty products. 

Hydrates the skin

Green Tea is packed with Vitamin E and Vitamin B2, which are two key elements essential for healthy skin. 

Vitamin E performs as an intense hydrator, which is particularly ideal for dry or imbalanced skin. 

Vitamin B2 on the other hand promotes healthy cell turnover for a glowing complexion. 

Shrinks pores

Green tea can help shrink pores as it contains tannins, and large pores are a sign of premature aging. 

Tannins are a natural astringent, so they can help draw out excess oil from pores but without drying out your skin. 

Our face primer stick provides a flawless base for makeup application and includes green tea as an ingredient to help minimize and blur pores. 

Dewy base and skincare benefits? Yes, please!

Reduce redness and puffiness

The anti-inflammatory properties found in green tea, along with tannins and caffeine, help refresh sore, puffy eyes and dark circles by shrinking the blood vessels around the eyes to reduce swelling and soothe irritated eyes. 

When applied topically, green tea-infused products can also decrease inflammation connected to premature aging.

Rich in antioxidants

Green tea can be seen as a valuable superhero ingredient, particularly when it comes to powerful antioxidants because it contains EGCG. 

EGCG is a fantastic component of beauty products. It can slow down or stop the development of acne and provide a smooth and even complexion by combating breakouts, lowering excess sebum to unclog pores, and treating dull, blemished skin. 

So, let green tea bring out your skin superpowers!

Moving on to white tea

Also known as ‘beauty tea,’ white tea is another natural ingredient with huge health, skin, and beauty benefits. 

When introduced into your beauty products and used topically, white tea can restore skin for a healthy, glowing complexion. 

Also from the Camellia Sinensis plant, white tea is made from young, withered, and dried white buds.

Here are ways in which beauty tea will benefit your skin when using products with white tea extracts.

Protects the skin from sun damage

Ingredients in white tea effectively fight free radicals and boost the immune function of skin cells, and protect against damaging effects from the sun. 

Topically applying products with white tea extracts can also protect the skin from oxidative stress to help restore our skin’s immune cells.
