How The Green Tea Leaf Extract Helps Your Skin

Green tea is one of the original ingredients to enjoy the title of superfoods and there is no denying the fact that it deserves the title. For the most part, people use green tea by consuming it orally. However, this super ingredient has a lot to offer your skin when used topically.

These topical benefits includes both short term and long term improvements which is why IPO Cosmetics uses green tea leaf extracts in most of our products. Here are some of the benefits to your skin that you have to look forward to from green tea extracts. 

Benefits of topical use of green tea extracts 

  • Anti-aging effects
  • There are several variations of green tea extracts that have been shown to have anti-aging effects when used topically for skincare. It is therefore a super ingredient worth considering as an addition to your skincare routine if you wish to maintain a healthy and youthful glow.

  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Green tea extracts also have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. These will come in very handy if you get skin irritation whether it is from makeup, food allergies, or even weather changes.

    The anti-inflammatory effects of green tea extracts are particularly beneficial for people who have acne.

  • Cleanses the skin and clears pores
  • Green tea leaves used in cleansers and scrubs are a fantastic way to get your skin clean and your pores nice and clear. 

    If you wear makeup or other skin products on a regular basis, the cleansing effects of green tea will help you protect your skin from breakouts caused by essentially suffocating the skin with layer upon layer of product. 

  • Regulates sebum production
  • If you have extra oily skin, you also have a lot to look forward to from green tea in skincare products. The extracts have compounds known to regulate sebum production. This combined with the cleansing effects of green tea will leave you with perfectly supple and non-greasy skin. 

  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Green tea leaves themselves are a great way to exfoliate your skin. It is a particularly awesome ingredient if you have sensitive skin or find alternative exfoliators and scrubs too harsh. Green tea is also fantastic if you already have irritated skin as it offers the additional benefit of soothing the inflammation.
