Tea is increasingly popular in skincare, especially green tea. Green tea protects your skin from environmental stressors like UV radiation and pollution. The antioxidants in it (called catechins) promote DNA repair for healthy, refreshed skin. If you're seeking a boost, the caffeine in green and black teas help reduce puffiness and firm your skin.
Several types of tea are common in skincare: black, green, matcha, and white. They all comes from species of the tea plant, but each offers slightly different benefits. Green tea is probably the one you'll see the most because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Tea is well tolerated by almost all skin types. The only exception is for those who have a known hypersensitivity to it.
