Japanese green tea is one of the best options for your skin health. It’s also excellent for your overall health. Here’s a look at all you need to know to make sure you use it in just the right way.
Before looking into how to use it, here’s a look at why it’s so beneficial. The first point to note is that it is excellent for hydrating the body. With the body hydrated, the skin will be too. This helps to keep it smooth and flexible.
The main benefit is in the detoxification benefits of drinking the green tea. The liquid will help to remove toxins from the body, which improves the overall health and definitely boosts the skin health. By removing the toxins out of the body, the skin will be acne and blemish free. Removing the toxins also helps to improve the complexion.
Green tea also contains antioxidants catechins. These have anti-bacterial properties, which helps to improve the immune system’s capabilities. Bacterial infections, including skin infections, are healed. (Read more about Catechins in green tea in my other article.)
These same antioxidants also help with inflammation reduction. The skin won’t be as red, with various ailments improving faster. Acne is improved and reduced, while scars heal much quicker.
There are also compounds that help with the rejuvenation of the skin. The compounds reactivate the skin cells, helping to promote healing and softness. Not only will you have better looking skin, but you can also help to limit and reverse some of the damage caused by pollution and the sun. It could also be possible to reduce the risks of cancer.

While you can drink the Japanese green tea to get all the health benefits, this isn’t the only option. You can also gain them through making face masks with your green tea.
For the mask, just mix a tablespoon of leaves with 3 tablespoons of yogurt. Full fat yogurt works best for this need. Place on your face for around 20 minutes to help the nutrients work straight with the layers of the skin. You’ll find that the nutrients get right into the cells and middle and lower layers to improve the collagen production and repair cell damage.
Another option is to make a facial rub to cleanse the face. Take a tablespoon of ground tea leaves with some honey. Make a thick paste that you can apply directly to the skin and then leave it for around 15 minutes. The honey will add more vitamin C directly to your skin for extra healing. When removing the honey, rub in a circular motion to work the tea leaves into your skin and remove the dead layers.
When dealing with sunburn, make a pot of green tea and place in the fridge to cool. Use cloths and soak them in the tea. Apply them directly to the sunburned areas for both soothing and healing.
Drinking Japanese green tea isn’t just a benefit. You can gain various skin health benefits by applying the tea direct.
