Tea Time
By Jill Sterling




According to research, green tea is regarded as an antioxidant that has been found to be very beneficial to the skin, mainly in the prevention of skin cancer and skin cell damage due to UV rays.

"Antioxidants are those agents which can counteract the effects of oxidant radicals. Oxidant radicals -- or free radicals, as they are commonly called -- are byproducts of the body that can cause damage to cells and tissues," says Hasan Mukhtar, PhD, professor and director of research in the Department of Dermatology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. "There may be some benefits of green tea in the human skin products," he added.

So, if green tea counteracts damaging byproducts in the skin, reviewing soaps, sprays and lotions containing it can’t be a bad experiment. Bath and beauty product manufacturers have definitely jumped on the green tea bandwagon and I tried a LOT of them – from bath gels to body lotions; I’d say I got a good sampling of what’s out in the marketplace right now.

What I found most fascinating about trying all these different green tea bath and body products was the vast difference in each one with regard to scent (each one defines the "green tea" smell differently), overall quality and effect on the skin.

I know it’s unfair, but I tend to gravitate to the more expensive products because I personally think they perform better in all categories (scent, delivery and effect).

After trying all these products – enjoying some more than others – I have to say that if you’re looking for products boasting the positive effects of green tea – you’ll most certainly find them in the marketplace.
