Apart from being a popular beverage, tea also has beauty benefits. It’s packed with powerful antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. Plus, it’s effective and gentle, making it perfect for all skin types.
Green tea is a popular ingredient in Korean beauty products and contains significant antioxidants that help fight free radicals. It also contains polyphenols that have anti-ageing properties and can reverse damage caused by UV rays.
Black tea, on the other hand, has the highest concentration of tannin which helps fight bacteria and hydrates and nourishes the skin. It is also high in caffeine, which helps in moisturizing and de-puffing skin and hence is a popular solution for dark circles and puffy bags under the eye.
Here are 5 products loaded with all the goodness of tea.
