White Tea - a once relaxing hot drink option served during high tea is now hitting mainstream beauty enthusiasts everywhere due to it’s extraordinary benefits. These natural yet healthy boosting benefits that white tea provide has also become a main ingredient in skincare treatments. But the question is, how extraordinary is white tea in skincare products?
White Tea high in Antioxidants
White Tea is a super antioxidant that comes packed with multiple benefits for the skin. For starters white tea is one of the lesser caffeinated types of tea but still packs a mighty punch.
It is estimated that white tea has about 30-55 mg of caffeine compared to green and black tea that averages over 70mg. This super beneficial type of tea is good for skin issues such as eczema and also acne due the high dose of antioxidants. Plus, if you consume white tea as a beverage twice daily you can significantly decrease the amount of acne on the skin and hydrate the skin.
White Tea to Hydrate Skin
When it comes to hydrating and purifying the skin, white tea does just that. In our newest product; SkinTea Active Renewal Masque, the benefits are definitely going to outweigh the expectations. In this masque we have combined 5% White Tea, 3% Hyaluronic Acid, 3% Glycolic Acid, 1% Lactic Acid, Papaya, Aloe Vera and Pomegranate. The white tea itself will calm sensitive skin and prep it for the hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid will then retain the skin’s moisture like the white tea leaves all the while decreasing visible signs of aging. Glycolic acid speeds up the skin rejuvenation process which normally happens on an average of 27 days.
White Tea for Dry Skin
Dry skin is another thing that a lot of people suffer from which is why white tea extract is great for dry skin. This type of skin can be found on everyone especially those who live in areas where it is cold. Cold weather can cause skin to become severely dehydrated causing a lack of moisture resulting in dry flakes, patches and red or irritated skin.
Lactic acid is one of the ingredients that we include in our SkinTea Active Renewal Masque. Both the 1% lactic acid and the white tea extract are 2 ingredients that can heal dry and soften aging skin.
There are a multitude of additional reasons why white tea is trending with beauty enthusiasts and skincare aficionados. Because we live in this skin we want to make sure that what we do to is doesn’t permanently damage it.
