Are you tired of the heavy chemical-laden creams and lotions that claim to give you wrinkle-free, smooth, and glowing skin but, all they give are huge bills? Not all creams and lotions are bad. However, we might have a natural, healthier, and tastier substitute.
Oh yes, teas help to keep your skin wrinkle-free and amplify the radiance. All the members of the tea family are power-packed with mind-blowing benefits. Each surpassing the other in one way or two. So when it comes to healthy skincare, White Tea overpowers all its cousin teas. Recent research carried out by Kingston University and Neil Yard’s remedies have found that White Tea is more nourishing as compared to 21 other plant nutrients and herbs.
The White Tea family homes 5 varieties namely - Yin Zhen Bai Hao (Silver Needle), Bai Mu Dan (White Peony), Gongmei (Tribute Eyebrow), Shou Mei (Noble, Long Life Eyebrow), and Fujian New Craft (DaBaiCha or DaHoaCha).
White Tea is amongst the purest forms of teas considering it undergoes minimal processing. It is low on caffeine but rich in antioxidants, comparatively more than any other variety of teas. It is considered to be the most delicate of all and has a pale yellow tone to it. It prevents cancer, controls diabetes, and is extremely beneficial for the skin. It adds glow, radiance to the skin, and also acts as anti-ageing.
In case, you are considering seeing the doctor to get your skin elevated, we suggest you flush the thought out of your mind and instead infuse some white tea in the pot and let it whisper the magic spell. While you are at it, we have a perfect tea kit that will slow down skin’s ageing, add glow to your skin, and calm you down. TDT’s Beau’tea Kit comes with 3 mini tea tins for you to start your skincare in the right manner.
Wrinkle and White Tea:
Our body contains enzymes which on the occurrence of an inflammatory disease break down elastin and collagen, two very important nutrients that keep your skin’s elasticity and protein concentration in check. Breaking down these nutrients leads to premature ageing.
However, the presence of catechins in White Tea helps to curb down the enzymes and replenish the nutrients in your skin.
Rich in Antioxidants:
Out of all the members of the tea family, white tea undergoes limited processing. Lesser the processing higher is the concentration of antioxidants, L - theanine, and catechins. The antioxidants act as a natural sunscreen and successfully help in reducing the harmful effects of UV rays.
Basically, it helps you look younger by preventing skin damage from sun exposure, pollution, stress, poor diet, and even the makeup you use each day.
