But what about topical benefits? Green tea is a natural anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredient.
This makes it a fabulous ingredient for skin care products. We are all dealing with free radicals on a daily basis from the sun above, pollution, artificial light and much more. These free radicals cause the skin to thin and wrinkles and areas of hyperpigmentation can appear If we can neutralize even some of them, then we are one step ahead in the anti-aging battle. And for those of us dealing with break outs or rosacea, those antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties really can help keep flare ups under control.
