4th July 2013

How do you like your tea sir/ma'am? If you're not that much of a tea-drinker, you'd be pleasantly surprised to discover what a small little tea bag brewing in boiling water can do for you.

One great benefit that green tea in particular has is its ability to hinder the formation of fat in the body, helping you maintain a healthy weight. Tea is also excellent for your eyesight - green tea has a positive effect on the eye tissue and reduces oxidative stress in the eyeballs, which may help you see better. For those of you that are yet to embrace this super drink read on and you'll definitely be reaching for the teapot.

Tea Can Help You Look Younger

That's right, your fountain of youth is found in your tea mug. We've already touched on green tea, this time white tea takes centre stage. This kind of tea is rich in polyphenol antioxidants which is fantastic at helping prevent skin and body diseases. White tea is said to slow down the ageing process by strengthening the elastin and collagen in your skin.

Tea Can Reduces Your Stress Levels

The next time you find yourself stressing out make yourself a lovely cup of black tea. One of the biggest benefits of sipping on black tea is that it actually helps to reduce the stress hormones in your body, as well as lowering blood pressure. Less stress also means less acne break outs.

If you've not been convinced into drinking more tea, there are other options to a youthful looking complexion, including microdermabrasion. Like tea, there are several benefits of microdermabrasion such as fading the appearance of acne scarring, less visible enlarged pores, discolouration, wrinkles and fine lines. If you're a bit of a sceptic and having read this are thinking but does microdermabrasion work? Then yes, this skin facial is one of our most sought after procedures here at sk:n.
