Green Tea Remedies Tired-Looking Eyes
Green tea extract is derived from leaves of Camellia sinensis and associated with several skin benefits. It is a curative wonder for soothing irritation reducing swelling, fighting damage and balancing skin. There is evidence that green tea blocks enzymes that degrade the skin matrix. The matrix is responsible for the skin's firmness, strength and suppleness. The weaker the matrix, the more wrinkles, roughness and slack. Tea extract blocks collagenase and elastase – enzymes that make it difficult for skin to regenerate collagen and elastin – the building blocks of healthy, strong skin. The well-documented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of topical green tea polyphenols slow down the signs of skin damage and aging for improved look and feel. For areas of swelling or puffy tired eye area, Tannins found in green tea act as gentle astringents that draw out irritation and reduce swelling for a refreshed look.
