Green tea and dark chocolate are both great sources of antioxidants – nature’s answer against free-radical damage to our skin and body, defending us from environmental damage and premature aging. They also have anti-inflammatory properties, thus helping to calm pimples and irritated skin.

 

Green tea has a high percentage of polyphenolic acids, which are a type of essential antioxidant that we must obtain through food consumption.
It works on both the dermis, which is the middle layer of our skin which contains sebaceous glands, and the epidermis – which is the upper layer of the skin that has the contact with the outside world.

 

Green tea decreases skin inflammation, prevents UV sunlight skin pigmentation – and hence reduces the risks of photo aging. In addition, green tea improves the collagen structure, which weakens during the years.

 

These activities make green tea into a good weapon in sensitive skin and anti-aging skin treatment.

 

Not only the green tea has preventive activities; it also cures the UV damaged skin cells from within.

 

In homemade facial mask recipes, you can use the green tea in practically any type of skin: Especially while it benefits both the sensitive skin treatment and the ageing one.

 

This ingredient can benefit your skin also if it is dry; because it stabilizes you skin pH and improve its barrier function.

 

As for chocolate, scientists have already found that cocoa can contain more antioxidants per cup than red wine or green tea do. The magnesium which is present in cocoa helps in producing progesterone which tackles hormone or stress related breakouts.

 

The latest good news about chocolate, from the Journal of Nutrition, is that ingesting certain compounds in cocoa can smooth the skin and decrease its sensitivity to the sun. German researchers conducted a study in which woman drank a 7 ounce cup of hot chocolate a day for 3 months. Results of the study showed a reduction in wrinkles of up to 25%.

 

One possible explanation for this result is that the antioxidant properties of the flavanols that can be found in cocoa beans give the skin extra protection against free radicals. Free radicals are the reactive forms of oxygen generated when UV light hits the skin. It is well established that the ageing of the skin caused by sunlight is largely the result of damage to the skin’s proteins caused by these free radicals.
