To a Tea
Fancy a cuppa? So does your skin. We’ve recently discovered a line called Teaology, which harnesses the precious properties of various teas and infuses them into a beauty ritual — green tea detoxifies, oolong soothes inflammation, and the list goes on. An innovative technology extracts the active antioxidants and polyphenols from whole tea leaves, to infuse the plant’s energizing and rejuvenating effects into serums, cleansers, and moisturizers. From smoky oolong to delicate white tea, we picked our four favourites to go along with a morning cup.
Light and delicately scented, white tea is packed with polyphenols and compounds that have been shown to protect skin against damage and fight aging. A few drops of this magical elixir, combining tea’s power with a peptide complex and vitamin C, is all that’s needed to smooth, brighten, and revitalize your complexion.
We love it in a rich Earl Gray or spicy chai, but black tea’s benefits go beyond its delightful taste. Catechins and flavonoids, antioxidants found in black tea leaves, are essential for fighting free radicals. In this skin-quenching emulsion, they meet energizing ginger and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, tone, and counteract signs of aging, all in an ultralight texture that melts into skin like water itself.
A traditional Chinese tea, oolong is made from partially oxidized tea leaves, and has been shown to soothe inflammation, relieve dry, itchy skin, and even enhance brain function. This special fabric mask is infused with blue oolong tea and triple hyaluronic acid, to tone, minimize imperfections, and leave skin radiant and salon-perfect in about ten minutes.
Green tea, the least oxidized kind of processed tea, has long been in the spotlight for its antioxidant and metabolism-boosting properties. Starring in a creamy exfoliator alongside sugar micro-crystals and nourishing oils, this detoxing green tea formula gently removes dead skin cells to cleanse, tighten pores, and reveal a softer, brighter complexion.
