Green Tea Benefits

We're all looking for that one magic product that makes our friends say "wow, your skin looks so young!

A little dose of green tea could make your friends "green" with envy.

The new secret weapon to fight aging may be found in this tea bag.

"Theoretically, green tea is a panacea. It's a wonderful thing for the skin."

Most of us know drinking green tea is a good thing, it's full of antioxidants.

But new studies show that green tea, in its purest form, can also fight the signs of aging.

"It stops inflammation; it stops dna from being damaged.

It stops the sun from burning the skin so in a perfect world it's the perfect thing to use on your skin." dermatologist miriam cummings cautions that before you spend a fortune on these products, make sure you're getting what you pay for.

"You look at the very back of the product, and see where is that green tea.

Is it at the very top, or is it in the middle or is it at the bottom of the list.

If it's at the very top and it's the first ingredient, then you've got mostly green tea in that product."

While doctor cummings says green tea shows great promise, you and your pocketbook may be better off focusing on less expensive ingredients for the time being.

"I would go for other antioxidants.

I think the antioxidants that are tried and true are vitamin c and e with folic acid." you may want to see a dermatologist to decide which products are best for your skin.

And no matter what you use, doctor cummings says there is one product that's a must.

So go ahead and drink to your health and your healthy skin.

It could take a few years to see a difference.....

Doctors say it doesn't hurt to drink green tea since it has so many benefits.
