Green tea

What it does: Green tea is loaded with flavinoids and antioxidants. Drinking it is the best gift you could give your skin.

Sunlight, UV rays and free radical (chemicals) in the atmosphere can damage your skin cell's structure and leave it incapable of repairing itself, making you look older and wrinkled before your years. It may also cause skin cancer.

Antioxidants in green tea battle these agents, helping your skin stay younger.

How to consume: Soak a tea bag or a teaspoon of tea leaves in a cup of hot water for at least three minutes to get the full extract. This is available at any pharmacy. Adding milk neutralises the antioxidants, so it is best to have it black.

Conditions it helps:

~ Wrinkled, aged looking skin and sunburns.
~ Rashes due to sun exposure.
~ Pigmentation due to menopause or pregnancy.
