Our complex modern world is a continuous cycle of trends which rush in , create a stir and then slowly fade out. The skin care industry is no exception. There is however an age old ingredient that has been part of the Easts daily routine for centuries, and this little secret (or maybe not so secret) has the potential to improve your skin from both inside and out.

So what is this secret ingredient?

It's Green Tea!
Green Tea has been proven to be food for the skin. Scientists have done extensive tests and clinical studies (as many as 150 tests) to prove this belief either true or false. The results prove this claim to be unequivocally true.

Benefits of Green Tea are…
-          High concentration of Antioxidants which help prevent premature ageing
-          High concentration of Anti-inflammatories
-          Drinking Green Tea improves the hydration levels of the skin

This potent cuppa tea has the most amazing ability through its high concentration of polyphenols (anti-oxidants) to significantly slow down the ageing process, to smooth and even out the skins texture, reducing roughness and increasing the skins natural hydration levels. Thanks to its action of boosting the Natural Moisturizing Factor chemicals in the skin cells (corneocytes).
