A wedge of zesty lemon, chilling ice cubes, and a fresh sprig of mint! Ah! The refreshing taste of an Iced tea can instantly rejuvenate you on a hot, sunny afternoon. The benefits of this refresher are many, the most important being the rush of antioxidants that come with it!
Antioxidants are your body’s mighty army fighting free radicals that can cause oxidative damage to your body cells. Iced tea has a high content of polyphenols- antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and promote longevity. It also contains tannins, which give the tea its antioxidant properties (and dark color). These tannins help in improving blood circulation, protect you from environmental pollutants, and possess antibacterial properties.
It’s obvious then that Iced tea is beneficial for the skin! The antioxidant content helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, mimic wrinkles, and fights premature aging. It helps in skin regeneration, improved circulation of blood, improves the quality and health of the skin, revealing younger looking skin.
