Enjoy a sip of green tea or matcha – then splash it on your face. Yes, topical green tea has been proven to provide many benefits to your skin. The main reason being that it contains the active compound, EGCG, known for its antioxidant and antibacterial properties. This makes green tea one of the best ingredients to add to your anti-aging and acne-fighting regimen. Plus, applying it to your skin can give it that soothing and calming touch for even the most sensitive skin types. See below for some green tea skincare recommendations:
