The beauty benefits of Green Tea 

Traditionally, many types of make-uplotions, creams and beauty preparations have used chemical antioxidants, or vitamins AC and E as preservatives for their products. Now, with research indicating that green tea has even more antioxidant properties than these powerful vitamins, there is a surge in products capitalizing on its natural benefits.


A variety of encouraging studies reveal that the topical application of green tea extract provides broad-spectrum protection against skin aging. These published studies indicate that people can derive anti-aging benefits from green tea extract applied topically on a consistent basis. Animal and human studies have credibly demonstrated that topical green tea formulations reduce sun damage and skin cancer. Aging is characterized by thinning skin and destruction of skin cells. These studies showed that topical application of green tea extract improved these two molecular parameters of skin aging.

A published study by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a prestigious journal, clearly demonstrated that topical applications of green tea extract can inhibit the development of skin cancer after long-term exposure to UVB light. Green tea appears to exert sun damage protection with powerful anti-oxidants that quench free radicals and reduce inflammation rather than by blocking UV rays. Therefore, green tea may synergistically enhance sun protection when used in addition to a sunscreen.
That’s why the makers of Asian Secrets included green tea as one of its key ingredients. Imagine all the benefits of green tea on your skin, topped with the moisturizing properties of this luxurious lulur body scrub - and you’ve got a product with a lot of punch. ;)

Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub is available in all Watsons outlets.
