Green Tea - My Skin Saviour

It's not a Tuesday I know, but I want to do a teen talk Tuesday style post all about my best friend Green Tea! A few weeks back I started a challenge to drink a cup of green tea everyday or even every other day if i can, to see what a difference it makes to me health wise and other benefits as well - and boy oh boy it has made such a big impact on my life. You won't see benefits straight away as it does take time!
Green Tea - My Skin Saviour
Why Green Tea? 
Green tea has been used as a medicine for thousands of years, originating in China but widely used throughout Asia this beverage has a multitude of uses from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. The reason that green tea has more health benefits attached to it than black tea is (apparently) due to the processing. Black tea is processed in a way that allows for fermentation whereas green tea’s processing avoids the fermentation process. As a result, green tea retains maximum amount of antioxidants and poly-phenols the substances that give green tea its many benefits.

How has it benefited me? 
Well, I have seen a huge difference in my skin! I have a problem with breakouts and have found very few treatments that work for a long period of time, but since starting to drink green tea my over all skin complexion and the breakout frequency has improved so much. My main spots always used to come out on my forehead and they have dramatically decreased, there are still scars there but its good enough for me! I have also been sleeping a lot better (And a lot early in fact!) after a few hours of drinking the tea I feel tired and ready to close my eyes and sleep like a baby! 

There are so many other benefits to green tea such as helping with weight loss, and more that you can read here! 

Have you tried drinking a cup of green tea? What are your benefits?
