There is much to be said about a green tea body scrub. This powerhouse of antioxidants rapidly removes free radicals that are damaging the skin. It can be used for rejuvenation of older or tired skin but can also be used to treat conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
It contains flavanol which fights the aging of skin cells and also caffeine, which when used as a scrub, increases circulation and blood flow to the deeper layers of skin leaving it looking youthful and smooth.
I found this video showing how to prepare green tea body scrub and realized that I haven't yet come across a recipe for a body scrub recipe that contains green tea. Green tea is known to neutralize UV light, prevent cancer, rejuvenate the skin, and prevent inflammation, among other things.
Recipes found on this site that contain green tea aim to alleviate skin dryness and fight inflammations.
You'll find olive oil and grapeseed oil mentioned in this recipe, both awesome moisturizers. Also, white sugar (granulated sugar) is mentioned instead of the usual brown sugar used in scrubs. Check out other body scrubs recipes based on white sugar.
There are many different choices on the market currently as the beauty industry is starting to recognize the effectiveness of this affordable ingredient. Among the most popular ones is Deep Sea Cosmetics Dead Sea Energizing Body Scrub - Green Tea which can be used to diminish stretch marks, rejuvenate the skin, treat eczema and psoriasis as well as scarring of the skin and rashes.
