Top 5 Health Benefits of Bathing with Green Tea Soap
There are many benefits to drinking green tea, but that's not where it ends. It's also good when applied topically to your body. Here are five benefits to bathing with green tea soap. There are actually more.
- Green Tea offers powerful antioxidants, which protect cells from damage--you'll slow down the aging process.
- The key ingredient is caffeine, a stimulant. In the bath, you're not drinking it, but you still get the caffeine effects. "Caffeine has been shown to constrict blood vessels," explains Cheryl Karcher, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. Because of this, she says, it's possible that applying caffeine-enhanced products to trouble spots may temporarily reduce swelling and contribute to the appearance of, say, a tighter tummy, skinnier thighs, or less puffy under-eye circles.
- Antioxidants in Green Tea may Lower Your Risk of Various Types of Cancer. EGCG, an element in green tea, has been proven to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, so green tea could possibly even PROTECT us against SKIN CANCER.
- Green Tea can kill bacteria, which lowers your risk of bacterial infections.
Green Tea prevents or reduces inflammation. This makes soap with green tea ideal for people suffering from acne or with dry, sensitive skin.
