Sri Lanka is synonymous for its amazing tea and picturesque tea estates. Ceylon Black Tea is the name bestowed upon black tea leaves grown on the tropical island of Sri Lanka.
Ceylon Black Tea is packed with tannins, polyphenols, vitamins (vitamin B2, vitamin C, and vitamin E) and minerals (magnesium, potassium, and zinc). Research studies have found that this amazing combination has a wide range of benefits for your skin.
So the next time you’re enjoying an amazingly relaxing and calming cup of tea, why not incorporate it into your skin care routine.
Protect Your Skin From Pollution
It has been reported that everyday your skin is exposed to over 200 airborne pollutants. These pollutants can cause premature aging, dry, and problematic skin.
Ceylon Black Tea contains a large concentration of antioxidants. This has been found to give Ceylon Black Tea the ability to protect your skin from sun damage and air pollution, thereby preventing premature ageing.
Reduce Cellulite By Toning and Tightening Skin
Ceylon Black Tea contains a higher level of caffeine than other varieties of tea, such as green tea. When Ceylon Black Tea is applied topically, it has been found to reduce the appearance of cellulite by increasing blood circulation and inhibiting the activity of the enzyme phosphodiesterase, an enzyme that promotes the storage of fat cells.
When combined with exercise and a healthy diet, using body products containing Ceylon Black Tea on a regular basis has been know to drastically reduce the appearance cellulite and improve the texture of skin.
Minimise Pores and Cleanse Skin
Ceylon Black Tea contains a high level of tannins, which are naturally occurring astringents. Astringents have been reported to shrink pores, thereby minimizing their appearance.
Additionally, tannic acid, found in Ceylon Black Tea, has been found to kill bacteria to cleanse and rejuvenate skin. This not only leaves you feeling refreshed but can also reduce body odour.
