It’s my birthday! 🎊 And I’m super excited about it. So, to spice things up I’m going to be sharing an evergreen beauty secret I learned exactly 6 years ago.

On this day, in 2011 I first learned about green tea from a naturalist friend in church, who enlightened me on its amazing benefits. Ever since I have done my best to drink green tea daily and apply it topically to maintain my overall health.

Tea Plant (Camellia sinensis)

Green tea is obtained from the Tea plant Camellia sinensis, grown mainly for its fresh leaves. It contains caffeine and other natural chemicals namely; Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), flavonoids, tannins, polyphenols, theobromine, gallic acid, boheic acids, polyphenols, and anthocyanins. These natural chemicals give green tea its medicinal value.

Green tea bags

Recent studies show that green tea contains antioxidants with anti-aging benefits, reduces body fat and lower cholesterol levels. According to a November 2013 Mayo Clinic Health Letter, green tea can also lower the risk of certain cancers. So, consuming green tea daily will improve your overall health, burn excess fat and reverse premature aging.

So, I wholeheartedly recommend natural skincare products with green tea, if you want younger looking and beautiful skin.

Please, don’t stop drinking of this fountain of youth!

🎼Forever young🎼

    1. Black tea is different from green tea. Although they are both from the Tea plant, the way black tea is made strips it of certain phytochemicals which are intact in green tea. So green tea is better.


  1. Well i was so enlightened reading this post. I even found out that Epigallocatechin gallate helps inhibit dihydrotestosterone. Thanks a lot for this wonderful post. Cheers
