Do you love drinking tea? Well, maybe you should start using skincare products that contain tea as a key ingredient too.

From brightening the complexion to restoring skin's moisture levels and reducing fine lines, tea can work wonders if it's part of your skincare routine.

Replenishing the skin’s radiance

The Elizabeth Arden White Tea Skin Solutions line is the brand’s first-ever clean, vegan, and natural anti-ageing skincare collection.

Infused with high-quality, effective, predominantly natural ingredients include white tea and white T-active complex, a potent blend of EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate glucoside), an active molecule found in white tea oil and white tea extract, that strengthens, soothes, and replenishes skin’s essential lipids.

Harnessing the power of white tea, each product in the collection is meticulously crafted to provide a holistic skincare experience, encouraging the skin to embrace its natural radiance.

The White Tea Skin Solutions Replenishing Micro-Gel Cream is filled with over 6,000 precious micro-droplets to instantly hydrate, brighten and perfect the look of skin.

Nutrients for dehydrated skin

The Black Tea Youth Enhancing Oil from Innisfree is a product meant to fight skin ageing that replenishes inner-skin hydration and rebalances the oil and water level for healthy, glowing skin.

This multi-use oil is clinically formulated to strengthen the skin barrier and provide an abundant amount of nutrients for dehydrated skin.

Its Reset Concentrate formula is made with the brand’s Beauty Green Tea, naturally fermented to become black tea.

The 80% fermented tea is rich in theabrownin, a high molecular weight catechin, which suppresses free radicals and boosts high antioxidant and anti-ageing effects.

This product can be used after toner, before the ampoule/serum step of your routine.

Delivering deep hydration

The Dewy Skin Cream from Tatcha was designed to help skin achieve a dewy glow, infused with a rich blend of botanical extracts, including green tea.

The brand’s signature Hadasei-3 complex, a potent blend of Japanese superfoods like green tea, rice, and algae, delivers deep hydration to the skin, providing skin plumpness, suppleness, and skin radiance.

These ingredients work together to nourish and revitalise the skin, while also providing antioxidant protection against environmental stressors.

Suitable for all skin types, it is especially beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated skin, as it helps to restore moisture balance.

Bouncy, glowing skin

Fresh’s Tea Elixir Skin Resilience Activating Serum is an anti-ageing serum built to power the skin to resist and diminish signs of ageing for reduced visible wrinkles, smoother texture, and increased bounce

Thanks to 15 years of research into the skin benefits of tea, the serum was developed by extracting the power of an adaptive tea plant and applying it to the skin.

Fresh discovered a way to harness the resilient properties of a tea plant from Mauritius (known as “the pearl of the Indian Ocean”) to create the Adaptive Phytocompound Tea (APT) Technology, an ingredient concentrated in citrate and polyphenols.

The product is also enriched with niacinamide to refine the look of pores; 5kDa hyaluronic acid to hydrate and minimise visible lines; ceramide III to strengthen the skin’s barrier; and ocean kelp to smooth the skin’s texture.
