There has been a ton of talk about green tea in the beauty industry. Almost every beauty company has been introducing products containing green tea as its main ingredient, and every high power figure is raving about it.
So, you may be wondering about the beauty advantages of green tea and specifically, how just 1 cup a day can benefit a redhead. Major clinical evidence* has shown that green tea is packed with healthy antioxidants, beauty benefits and more:
1. Metabolism Boost:
Sipping green tea has been linked to a boost in metabolism and energy levels which can result in burning calories at a higher rate while decreasing fat production in the body.
2. Anti Aging Benefits:
Green tea is rich in antioxidants which can prevent free radicals ( sometimes caused by pollution and toxins in the body) from attacking the skin and causing wrinkles. Drinking a cup of green tea daily is said to significantly increase the antioxidant production in your body.

3. Sun Protection:
As redheads, we are aware of the threat of skin cancer from UV rays. Studies have proven that products containing the green tea extract may help to neutralize the effects of UV rays when combined with an effective sunblock. How exciting is this news?!
An added benefit is that when cooled, brewed green tea can be used as a topical compress to help with sunburns.
4. Anti-Inflammatory Benefits:
How many of you redheads are suffering from redness and sensitive skin? The powerful antioxidants in green tea also act to reduce redness and inflammation in the skin which has been linked to effective treatments for rosacia and acne.
Unlike coffee, which robs your body of precious moisture, green tea has been found to help retain hydration to the tissues of the skin which can result in a more supple and youthful appearance.
6. Healthy on the Inside, Healthy on the Outside
Studies do show that when you’re healthy on the inside, the skin and hair are healthy too. Is it possible that green tea can actually enhance the color, vibrancy and health of your hair? Some think so!
With these natural and inexpensive boosts your beauty and body, why not brew a nice cup of green tea and drink to your health.
Rock it like a Redhead!
