Tea is the most commonly consumed beverage in the world after water. Whether it’s black, green, or red tea, they all contain high levels of antioxidants, some of which are called polyphenols, flavanoids, and catechins. The health benefits and even cosmetic value of tea has been known and used for centuries. It is thought that tea contains ten times as many antioxidants as you’d find in fruit and vegetables.

The anti-cancer properties of antioxidants have been repeatedly demonstrated in numerous studies, with some suggesting that those in tea may reduce the risk of gastric, esophageal, and skin cancers if one consumes 4 to 6 cups of tea daily. Other studies have indicated that antioxidants help prevent blood clotting, boost the immune system and can help prevent strokes. Studies have also found that tea drinkers have a lower risk of heart disease, that black tea (which is used in chai) may lower “bad” cholesterol, that black and green tea can slow down the spread of prostate cancer, and may even protect against the cancer caused by smoking. Green and whit tea fight colon cancer.

The cosmetic properties of teas have been utilized for some time, at a fraction of the cost of spas and wellness centers.

Revitalize tired, puffy eyes, sore feet, and soothe minor cuts and abrasions by brewing a half-cup of unscented black or green tea leaves in 1 quart of boiling water for at least 10 minutes. Strain the leaves and set aside, then cool and refrigerate the liquid.
Apply the cold tea with a cotton pad onto minor cuts or scrapes and leave on the affected areas for 5 minutes, then repeat without washing off the solution. Sunburns can also be relieved by soaking cotton pads in cold tea and then applying them to the affected area until the burn begins to cool.
Soak cotton pads in the cold tea and lay them over your eyes, keeping them on your eyelids for 10 minutes. You can also refrigerate used tea bags to use the same way.
For the perfect way to relieve sore, tired feet after a long day walking or running, it is best to soak your feet in cold tea for 15 minutes.
For facial rejuvenation, try mixing one teaspoon of fine cornmeal with cooled chamomile tea to create a gentle scrub. Let dry, then gently rub off with a moist cloth. (Not for sensitive skin)
To create a gentle exfoliating paste, combine chamomile tea and powdered milk. Apply to the skin, let dry, and then rub off before washing.
Herbal chamomile tea can also be used to bring out natural highlights in the hair. To nourish and strengthen hair, warm (do not boil) a half-cup olive oil, 2 teaspoons fresh ground lavender, and the dry contents of 2 peppermint tea bags. Massage the mixture into the scalp with damp hair. Cover the hair with a showercap to keep in heat for 20-25 minutes. Shampoo and rinse hair.
