And I start doing this reflection out loud and sharing it with you because it has a lot to do with the topic I want to discuss with you today: white tea and its benefits for the skin. But, above all, how to use white tea to your advantage to take care of your skin.
Why this topic today? First, people often ask what varieties of tea help you take care of your skin, what is so special about white tea, and, without a doubt, white tea, along with green tea, is the best of the options. And, secondly, because scientific studies and natural and vegan cosmetics also prove us right, so buying white tea will help you achieve perfect skin.
Precisely, natural and homemade cosmetics made from white tea and aimed at improving the appearance of your skin, are what we are going to talk about today. First, we will start talking about the benefits of white tea, in this sense, and, secondly, we will give you some ideas of creams to achieve it, in addition to talking about the best infusions to complement this result. Let’s start!
Benefits of White Tea for the Skin
I know, I know: there is a lot of talk about the benefits of green tea to improve the appearance of the skin and yet, did you know that white tea is 10 times more antioxidant than green tea and that its content is 3 times more polyphenols? And all this is explained, among other factors, because white tea is the least processed of all, and fewer properties are lost than in the case of green tea and, above all, in the case of black tea, which is the most fermented and all this, products free of any chemical ingredient.
So, as you can see, white tea is the most suitable for skin care and you can benefit from its effects:
Anti-aging: thanks to the fact that it preserves the rejuvenating properties of the skin cells. Discover its properties to combat aging, it will convince you for sure!
Protective against external agents: because it helps to prevent cells from oxidizing.
Helps the production of collagen and elastin: which our body generates naturally, but whose production begins to decline after the age of 30. That is why it is important to provide our body with natural products such as white tea, which help, among other benefits, to reduce or delay the sagging of the skin.
Helps wounds heal better: and faster, for the same reason as the previous point.
These are the main reasons why this wonderful drink can not miss in your routine, loaded with antioxidants that you should use as the greatest natural treatment.
