That You Should Try for Ultimate Benefits

Guest Contribution by Nemanja Marinkoff

Whenever we’re talking about beauty, the first thing we usually mention is our skin. Since our skin is our biggest organ, we do need to ensure that we take excellent care of it. That being said, there are a plethora of tips online that promise minimal effort and excellent results almost instantly. But it is important to realize that miracles don’t happen overnight.

On top of that, while some of the methods do bring results, not all of them are actually good for your skin long-term. Luckily, the power of nature is actually greater than you may think. For instance, you probably didn’t know just how much a simple tea can help restore your skin’s natural beauty and radiance. So, with that in mind, here are five teas you need to try out that will do wonders for your skin and make it look healthy and glowy.

Rooibos Tea for Dry Skin

One of the most common struggles people are dealing with is dry skin. Not only can dry skin look flaky and unappealing, but it doesn’t feel great either. While there are some undeniable benefits of using a good moisturizer and amazing treatment effects of serums you need to make sure you treat your skin from the inside as well. Here’s where rooibos tea comes to aid. This red tea will not only help your skin retain moisture, thus making it look fresher and more glowy, but it also contains amazing UV- and pollutant-fighting properties as well. So, if you find yourself struggling with dry skin: in addition to your regular skin care products, try including rooibos tea in your routine.

White Tea’s Antioxidant Benefits

An interesting thing to mention first is that white tea and green tea actually come from the same plant. However, one of the main differences is that green tea actually contains more caffeine. That being said, white tea is oftentimes way less processed than green tea, which means that it offers stronger antioxidant benefits. Detoxing our bodies is one of the easiest ways we can ensure that there are no underlying factors compromising our skin’s well-being. So, whenever you feel like your skin is struggling, try adding more white tea in your day-to-day.

Black Tea for Oily Skin

Black tea has been a true staple in any good skin care routine for ages, dating all the way back to the Ming Dynasty. Simply put: If it truly wasn’t all that good, it would have become obsolete by now – which says a lot about this amazing tea’s properties. Thanks to its natural properties, black tea can absorb all of the excess sebum our skin produces, without drying out the skin too much. That’s why black tea is commonly suggested to people struggling with oily skin.

Strong and Powerful Matcha

You’re probably already familiar with all the benefits of good old green tea. But did you know that matcha tea actually has all the same benefits? When you think about it, matcha tea is also, technically speaking, a variant of green tea. And while that is true, this variant is far more potent and powerful than regular green tea. What’s even cooler about matcha is that there are so many different ways you can use it both on the outside and the inside and let it take your skin to a whole new level of gorgeous.

Hibiscus for Natural Glow

Another red tea on our list is hibiscus tea. While often overlooked, hibiscus tea is really great at restoring your skin’s natural glow. Since this delicious floral tea is so rich in vitamins – particularly vitamin C, as well as vitamins A, B1, B2, iron and zinc – including it in your everyday will restore your skin’s natural health and glow. On top of that, thanks to its high content of natural alpha hydroxy acids and omega-3 fatty acids, it will also do wonders for your nails and heart.

As you can see, you don’t have to rely on aggressive chemical solutions if your skin is struggling. Simply make sure you clean your skin regularly, rely on quality moisturizer and serum, and increase your regular intake of some of these amazing teas. You’re guaranteed to notice a difference sooner rather than later.
