Drinking tea daily is good for health. But now a day’s spas and companies making beauty products are promoting tea as beauty enhancing herb. Researchers proved tea as a healthy drink if taken in moderate amount. But no study shows that tea can does wonder to skin. Some studies reveal that tea contains elastin which helps in maintenance of firm skin. Elastin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So applying creams containing tea may be beneficial to some extend but drinking it is always a best option. The phytochemicals present in tea reduces the oxidative stress of skin making it more toned. But all these studies does not give any valid proof that only using tea in ointments and spas can give you maximum effects. Also if tea is taken along with lot of sugar all its beneficial effects are hindered giving only extra calories. So enjoy your tea either as drink or in beauty products.
