The Japanese have long known the secrets of green tea. The beautifully smooth and flawless complections of most Japanese women are often attributed to frequent consumption of green tea.

It all starts with one of the main vitamins found in green tea-vitamin E. Vitamin E, often found in all-natural body lotions, sunscreens, and many other forms of skin treatment-is known for its ability to help skin retain moisture. According to Dermstore.com, vitamin E can not only help skin retain moisture, but also elasticity, thus heping to slow down the aging process. Vitamin E can help to smooth out or prevent those fine lines everyone is always trying to get rid of. Vitamin E can also help to moisturize rough or dry skin from the inside out. Green tea’s high content of vitamin E makes it an excellent treatment for skin.

Apart from this healthy drink, you should also take weight loss supplements like resurge to support your diet.

The final-and possibly most exciting-beauty benefit of green tea is the assitance it provides in weight loss. Food.Yahoo.com’s recent article on green tea tells us that green tea actually speeds up the metabolism, helping us to burn those pesky fat calories that can be so difficult to get rid of. I can say from personal experience that this is very true. Green tea has always been a favorite drink of mine. But recently, since hearing about all of these wonderful health and beauty benefits it can provide to me, I have begun drinking it almost daily. When I added this increase of green tea to my diet and excercise, I have seen a signifigant increase in the amount of weight that I have lost. I have noticed that I even feel less hungry throughout the day if I drink green tea in the morning, with or instead of breakfast. My stomach has become visibly flatter-and my waist measurement has now dropped to 24 inches from the 26 it was two weeks ago. These results are quick and quite drastic when you consider that I am not overweight. Imagine what green tea could do for someone who was overweight? Of course, one must remember that diet and exercise are vital-without these two, I doubt as if green tea would yeild any sort of results. It should be used as assistance, not as a treatment in of itself.
Green tea’s beauty benefits are obviously well worth the extra cup of tea here and there. After all, even if you personally see no results, (which I doubt), all it costs you is the consumption of a delicious and healthy beverage. There is no perscription to obtain and no fortune to be spent. It is simply a good, old-fashioned, all-natural remedy. The Japanese have been harnessing green tea’s power for hundreds of years-why shouldn’t you, too?
