Green Tea Skin Care

The Princess and the Tea


Kari is particularly fond of green tea skin care recipes for her skin.  Especially since she can indulge herself with a natural anti-aging skin care treatment while relaxing and enjoying a healthful cup of tea at the same time.

New studies are released nearly every day that expound upon the virtues of green tea.

Thank you for sharing your green tea skin care recipe Kari!

Green tea is gaining in popularity as a common ingredient found in natural skin care recipes because of its very powerful anti-aging properties.

Kari loves this simple, yet rich soothing skin peel recipe jammed packed with nutrients. She treats herself to a facial treatment least once a week.

The Princess and the Tea

  • Boil a small pot of water with several green tea bags

  • Let steep until tea becomes cool

  • Carefully squeeze out every last drop of the tea bags into the pot

  • Whisk one egg white with the juice of half a lemon, a packet of plain gelatin and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch until frothy

  • Slowly add 1/4 cup of the green tea while whisking briskly

  • Apply a thin layer to the facial skin and let set for 20 minutes

  • Rinse completely with warm water

The remaining mixture can be kept in the refrigerator for several days.

Did you know that studies indicate that the topical application of green tea helps to repair sun damage, treat acne, prevent premature skin aging, and enhance skin tone while stimulating new cell growth?

An article published the National Library of Medicine correlates an effective relationship to the topical use of green in improving acne.

In addition, the August issue of the Archives of Dermatology says:

"There may be some benefits of green tea in the human skin products," Hasan Mukhtar, PhD, and colleagues say in the article, which summarizes all the known information about green tea's effects on the skin. 

Mukhtar believes, as do others, that green tea's antioxidant property is key to its skin-protective qualities. "Of all the antioxidants known to mankind, the components of green tea are the most potent," says Mukhtar. "Antioxidants are those agents which can counteract the effects of oxidant radicals." Oxidant radicals -- or free radicals, as they are commonly called -- are byproducts of the body that can cause damage to cells and tissues. Antioxidants bind to the free radicals, deactivating them before they can cause harm."

There are an increasing number of research studies that show that both drinking green tea and applying it topically can have a wide range of benefits for your skin.  Not only can green tea and green tea extract help treat acne and promote younger looking skin, but it also has the potential for helping to prevent melanoma and nonmelanoma skin cancers.

Green Tea is great for you inside and out.
