The benefits of tea for the skin in winter
In winter, it is normal for our skin to dry out. Indoor heating systems and cold outside temperatures contribute to skin dryness, which has the effect of dulling our complexion. The main causes of this drying are a drop in the humidity level of the ambient air caused by heating systems and exposure to cold temperatures and exposure to wind. Taking care of your skin in winter becomes very important in order to maintain its elasticity and maintain a radiant complexion.
The role of tea in all of this.
Rich in active components, tea has long been known for its antioxidant properties. Because it contains a high amount of polyphenols and amino acids, green tea, above all, prevents oxidative stress and protects against the degradation of collagen, which helps to protect skin elasticity and slows the premature aging process. As it has the ability to capture free radicals, it helps considerably to reduce the fine lines that develop over time. It is known to be astringent, meaning that it helps to tighten skin pores and thus maintain skin moisture. Also, thanks to the tannins it contains, they contribute to improving the complexion. The teas that contain the most tannins are black teas and green teas. As tea contains theine, it has a detoxifying power for the body, so a healthy body directly provides a radiant complexion. An infusion of green tea in the morning can do wonders. We all know that tea is 99% water. Hydration is important and we sometimes tend to neglect it during the cold winter months. Yet it's the time of year when our bodies need to be hydrated the most. Drinking tea regularly on a daily basis helps us to have a healthy and radiant complexion.
