"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.
