Green tea is a must-have “food” for great skin. Okay, so I know it is technically a beverage, but the tea leaves do come from a plant! Green tea is a wonderful source of beautifying antioxidants. It also relaxes the body and lowers stress due to a specific amino acid known as L-theanine. Drink 3 cups daily or more for best results. Even decaf is great if you don’t want to consume caffeine. Green tea is also great for your heart and your arteries by reducing blood pressure.
Clear skin starts from within, and one of the best, cheapest and most effective ways to get there is to help your body flush out toxins by drink plenty of water. Not only will upping your fluid levels help to keep your brains fully functional and therefore better able to cope with stress, but it also replenishes water in the cells. Make sure you drink the recommended eight glasses of water a day, and drink more after exercise.
