Green tea is one form of therapy on its own.
Packed with EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) – a major polyphenolic compound found in green tea – it delivers high levels of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects, helpful for problematic skin.
It has been known to be particularly useful in improving acne and concerns arising with oily skin for its ability to control excess sebum.
Other skin types it can benefit are: aging skin, ‘clogged’ skin, skin with rosacea, eczema, atopic dermatitis, dandruff, etc.
It is used in undereye treatments to reduce puffiness as well.
