How does green tea help?


Green tea contains a cocktail of potent antioxidants called catechins, which help fight damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals can form in your skin for a variety of reasons, including exposure to toxins. However, the most common cause of free radicals in skin cells is UV radiation from sunlight, which causes up to 90% of all signs of premature aging. Since exposure to sunlight is a major factor that ages the skin, it is reasonable to assume that products with green tea extract could help prevent premature aging.
 Green tea also contains tannins, which act as an astringent.

Its a great refreshing drink too with a long list of health benefits. Drink it hot in winters and chilled in summers with a dash of honey and lemon, and be beautiful from within!

The concoction will keep in the fridge for a few days. Try it and let me know how it goes for you!
