Green Tea

Green tea is a popular skincare ingredient used for Korean skincare. It has antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties that brighten the skin, reverse sun damage and reduce inflammation. It contains the polyphenolic compound EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which prevents skin infection. Green tea also has a moisturising effect on the skin. You can use it as a cleanser, scrub or toner to enhance your skin health. Dip a green tea bag in boiling water and let it cool before it is on your face with a cotton ball.
