It Helps With Anti-Aging

Thanks to its high amount of antioxidants, Green Tea makes for an amazing sidekick to fight signs of aging! It can help control inflammation and helps fight wrinkles by increasing cell turnover.

It Protects You From Sun Damage

Green Tea can be very helpful in fighting sun damage and reducing dark spots on your face. It doesn’t block UV rays the way sunscreen does so you should still make sure you wear your daily SPF, but it has the ability to combat the free radical damage that your skin faces after sun exposure.

It Helps Treat Skin Disorders

Green Tea is packed with anti-inflammatory properties which makes it very effective at calming your skin. When you include an ingredient like Green Tea in your skin care routine, it can assist with the redness and inflammation from skin disorders like rosacea and psoriasis.

It Reduces Puffiness and Inflammation

Green Tea contains high levels of both caffeine and packs tons of anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, it does amazing work to reduce inflammation and puffiness from your whole face. It can not only improve the way your skin feels but how it looks too!

So if you want to incorporate green tea into your skin care routine make sure to pick a bottle of our Repair and Release Cream or Olive Oil Cleanser!

This Is Why Drinking Coffee Could Actually Help Make Your Skin Healthier

For some of us, our day doesn’t start until we’ve had our cup of coffee. Not only does this tasty little lifesaver get you going in the morning, it can also do wonders for your skin!

Coffee is rich in antioxidants, so much so that the American Chemical Society has found that coffee is the most popular source of antioxidants for people in the United States — even more so than beverages like tea and wine.

While these antioxidants are super effective when consumed, they’re also just as effective when used topically on the skin! You can turn the coffee from your kitchen into a paste, mask, or scrub for your entire body!

So how can you save your skin with coffee?

Try making a homemade coffee scrub.

Not only will it smell delicious, but it’s also been proven to reduce cellulite and improve the blood flow in your body. You can use it on your arms, face or even your thighs and backside! Your skin will be left soft to the touch and looking vibrant and will help remove all the dead skin cells and toxins.

3. Rinse off with warm water

4.  Apply anti-aging cream to your freshly opened pores!

This will help brighten your skin and say goodbye to dark spots and dullness! A simple coffee mask reduces inflammation on your face leaving wrinkles less visible.

All of the “stress” that our bodies deal with every day, both internally and externally, show up on our skin in the form of aging, puffiness, infections, inflammation and sensitivities. That’s why we rely on eating and using natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory to help curb inflamed and diseased cells.

That’s where Witch Hazel comes in. It is considered a strong antioxidant and it’s astringent properties are perfect for killing bacteria and free radicals that lives within skin’s pores.

Witch Hazel aids in stopping cellular damage that prevents signs of aging, and speed up healing of existing skin damage. If you suffer from any skin conditions like redness, irritation, inflammation, excess oil or dryness, it’s pretty much the skincare miracle ingredient you’ve been waiting for!
