Pools are open. Summer is here so is the need for extra sun protection.
Many of us are going to forgo the coffee during the summer and start drinking the green tea smoothies and iced green tea not only because its delicious but because we need as much help as we can get from mother nature to protect our skin from sun damage.
The medicinal value of this tea is attributed to polyphenols. See what is the role of the green tea in prevention of cancer reported in National Library of Medicine.
Researchers believe that green tea’s sun damage protection status stems from absorption and the degradation of free radicals preventing the UV rays to break down the cells. Green tea enhances the sun protection when used in addition to a sunscreen. As an extra special bonus, both drinking the green tea with EGCG and applying it topically is believed to reduce the changes in the skin that lead to wrinkles, skin sagging and even skin cancer.
