How drinking an ancient Japanese tea every day can improve your skin and inner health

  • Customers are turning to a vibrant green tea to assist with skin issues

  • The nutrient-rich drink can help to repair the skin from damage, such as acne 
  • It can also reduce puffiness, dark under-eye circles and inflammation 
  • The product is available on the X50 website for $29.95 per 30g tub 

While it’s important to drink enough water every day, customers are turning to a antioxidant-packed tea to improve the look and texture of their skin.

Australian brand X50 has released a Matcha Tea derived from Uji, the Kyoto region of Japan, to produce a sweet, nutrient-rich drink that contains 50 per cent less caffeine than coffee.

The high antioxidant and concentrate levels help to repair the skin from damage due to environmental factors, acne, scarring and adds plumpness.

Matcha also has the power to reduce puffiness, skin inflammation, and dark under-eye circles because of its high vitamin K content, a vitamin that promotes better blood circulation.

According to X50 Lifestyle Naturopath, Bianca Richardson, the vibrant green colour is thanks to the high amount of chlorophyll matcha contains.

These natural plant compounds are essential for photosynthesis, the chemical reaction in which sunlight is transformed into energy, and protects skin from sun damage and reduces photo-ageing, which means fewer wrinkles and sunspots.

Chlorophyll also protects the skin by shielding it from impurities and chemicals in the environment that could clog pores.

To make the tea, simply add one to two teaspoons of matcha into a bowl or teacup, add between 75mL to 150mL of hot water and whisk with a chasen (traditional bamboo whisk) or fork until a froth has formed.

Aside from its benefits on blemishes, this antioxidant promotes smoother, more supple skin due to its ability to rejuvenate skin cells and support skin structure.

Studies have shown that drinking Matcha enhances both resting metabolic rate and the speed at which we burn fat, with research showing that exercising immediately after drinking it can result in 25 per cent more fat burned during exercise.

The ‘superfood’ drink has also been proven to reduce inflammation, boost the immune system and lower cholesterol.

The product is available on the X50 website for $29.95 per 30g tub.
