We all know health is wealth… I am trying to give my 10 cents here by emphasizing on health and wellness in my blog series #healthwellnessbeauty and right now I am more keen on talking about Anti Ageing.
This is one topic we all shy away from and hesitate to talk about openly.
But the fact remains we all are aging and even if you are in your late 20’s like me, there is no way you should overlook the early signs of aging.
I hope you have read my last blog which was actually the first one for Anti Ageing and now I am taking it further By talking about one particular ingredient per week that will help you for your skin and overall health.
This Blog is all about Green Tea and its benefits.
I can’t list all – If I do so this blog might never end so I have mentioned some really small and easy ways of green tea consumption and its benefits for health and skin below.
How Does the Green Tea Work? Green tea helps to promote weight loss in several ways:
?Boosts the metabolism. Research done at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, shows that green tea speeds up the average person’s metabolism thus increasing the number of calories they burn. This is believed to be due to the catechins, potent antioxidants, found in the leaves. ?Green tea Helps to burn fat stores within the body. To be converted to energy, fat within the body needs to be broken down in the cells, and then moved through the bloodstream.
Those who are thinking about using Green Tea to achieve their weight loss goals will need to keep a few things in mind. These include: • To maximize the effects of the green tea on weight loss, one needs to consume 3-5 full glasses per day.
• Preferably, tea should be brewed with the leaves instead of a tea bag. This will allow making more of the essence to be extracted so that it retains its nutrients and use tea with no artificial preservatives. • Water should be poured directly over the tea, right before it boils and the tea brewed for 3-4 minutes.
Now let’s talk about how green tea can do wonders for your skin:
Green tea can be really beneficial when it comes to promoting a beautiful skin. It has the ability to stop tyrosinase, which in effect reduces melanin production because of its impressive amounts of vitamin C, which also prevents the accumulation of melanin in certain areas.
To use green tea on the face, you can simply apply wet and cooled tea bags to the problem areas and leave it on for 15 minutes. This is particularly useful for dark under eye pigmentation.
Or you could also make a green tea mask by mixing the tea leaves with raw honey and lime and apply this mask for 10/15 mins twice a week.This will work wonders for skin elasticity.
You can even refrigerate green tea bags and then keep them on your eyelid for 10/15 mins for puffy eyes and dark circles.
I hope you found this Blog beneficial and stay tuned for another wonder Ingredient which we will talk about in the next blog.
Till then take care of your health and Stay happy ?
