Green Tea Sunscreen!

Category: Food & Your Health

This is a novel yet effective way to get skin protection from Ultraviolet rays.

Try adding some fresh mint leaves and a drop of honey to your green tea, chill, and then serve over ice for a refreshing summer cooler! Iced Jasmin perfumed green tea with a drop of honey is also lovely served this way. My favorite is Four O'clock's Jasmin Tea, the leaves are rolled into pearls and offer the best infusion I have found to date.

Don't forget, green tea is full of anti-oxidants too!

The polyphenols found in green tea protect the skin against the adverse effects of ultraviolet radiation such as UV-induced sunburn, UV-induced immunosuppression and photoaging of the skin. They exert their photoprotective effects by various cellular, molecular and biochemical mechanisms. Also, green tea polyphenols protect the skin by improving the elastic tissues.
