Today, I’m excited to share some news from the skincare world that could help YOU get a brighter, more youthful complexion in just seconds.
It’s a discovery that can actually help revive and reactivate dull and dying skin cells, to give back the energized glow you remember from your youth.
You see, new skin cells are constantly generated at the dermis layer of skin, the “second” layer right below skin’s surface.
After those skin cells are “born,” they slowly make their way to the surface over the course of about 28 days, then make their appearance as fresh skin you can see.
In medicine, this process is called keratinocyte differentiation.
Now, a fresh new layer of skin every month may sound great, but what happens next poses a problem for anyone who wants to look their best…
For the next 20 days after these new cells reach the body surface, they essentially sit and begin the dying process.
It’s true… Every bit of skin you can see in the mirror right now, is actually slowly dying…
Becoming duller, drier, and even creating the illusion of worsened fine lines and sagging.
BUT — at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA, scientists have discovered an easy, at-home trick that can actually re-activate dying skin cells, and quite literally bring new life to skin’s surface. 1
So what’s the secret?
It all starts with a simple bag of green tea.
Now, you probably already know how great drinking green tea is for your health.
That’s because its truly remarkable antioxidant profile can help neutralize free radicals and delay aging throughout the body.
But when green tea is applied directly to the skin, dying cells are given “revitalized,” immediately creating a fresh, youthful glow.
And, as a bonus, the small amount of caffeine in green tea can help temporarily tone and tighten skin, giving it a quick and easy “lift” you’ll notice right away.
If you want to see this in action for yourself, just follow these easy steps to make your own Green Tea Revitalizer:
- Fill a small saucepan with about 2 cups of water, boil, and add 2-3 green tea bags.
- Turn the heat down slightly and simmer the mixture until about half of the water is gone.
- Allow the concentrated green tea to cool completely, before placing it into the refrigerator in an airtight container.
Twice weekly, use a cotton ball to apply your new Green Tea Revitalizer like a toner immediately after cleansing and exfoliating skin, and follow with your usual skincare routine.
Now, there is just one important thing to note about this trick:
Green tea is not shown to actually penetrate beyond the epidermis layer of skin.
That means this trick is a temporary fix, that won’t truly transform skin for the long haul.
That’s why it’s so important to use this Green Tea Revitalizer with your usual skincare routine – not as a replacement for any part of it.
However, when done about twice a week, the Green Tea Revitalizer can help you renew skin’s surface and stay “one step ahead” of aging cells — for a healthier, more radiant overall look you can be proud of.
And don’t forget… adding a few ice cubes and a drizzle of honey will turn your Green Tea Revitalizer into a youth-protecting summer iced tea you’ll love!
