If you’re a skincare enthusiast, you will know that green tea has immense skin benefits. Its soothing, calming and antioxidant-rich properties offer relief from some of the most common skin concerns. Green tea is particularly beneficial during summer when the harsh rays of the sun cause inflammation, burns and blemishes.
Apart from sipping two cups of green tea a day, including green tea infused products in your daily beauty routine will keep several skin problems at bay. Ahead, all the products infused with the goodness of green tea to cool you down this summer.
Using a good face wash is extremely important during summers when your skin produces excess oil and sweat, inviting acne and breakouts. A deep cleansing and soothing facial cleanser will keep your skin looking healthy and matte. The Citra Pimple Clear Face Wash contains anti-oxidants of Japanese green tea which prevents pore clogging, breakouts and fades blemishes. The healing properties of green tea subside existing pimples and prevent new ones from appearing.
It’s common to experience breakouts on your body during summer, especially on the chest and back due to excessive sweating. Replacing your current body wash with a soothing and calming one will put an end to these common skin problems. The Dove Go Fresh Nourishing Body Wash is infused with the goodness of two soothing and refreshing ingredients – green tea and cucumber. This gentle cleanser will remove all impurities and help get rid of chest and bacne.
Just like moisturisers, body lotions should also be used throughout the year no matter which season. However, in summers, make sure you pick a non-greasy formula to prevent greasy skin. The Vaseline Revitalizing Green Tea Body Lotion gets easily absorbed into the skin, soothes it and leaves it subtly scented. Apply after a shower while your skin is still a little damp for better absorption and long-lasting nourishment.
While caring for your face and body, don’t forget your hands which bear the maximum brunt all day long. To prevent dryness or skin peeling, it’s necessary to take a break from hand washes that contain harsh chemicals and instead, opt for something with a cooling ingredient such as the Lifebuoy Handwash - Nature with Green Tea.
An important beauty product that you can’t survive summer without is a finishing powder. Whether you wear only a simple layer of sunscreen, CC cream or foundation, using a finishing powder ensures your skin looks matte and oil-free. Apply the Lakme 9 to 5 Naturale Finishing Powder on your face every day and reapply every few hours to keep greasiness at bay.
