Good morning, sippers! As summer continues on, our skin is most likely feeling the heat, and undoubtedly needs a little love and refreshing.

White Tea: The Elixir of Youthful Skin
From the sprawling tea gardens of China, a potent secret has been brewing for centuries: white tea. Revered as the most prized of all teas, it's not just a beverage but also a profound skincare remedy. Enriched with powerful antioxidants, white tea has been an elixir for youthful, radiant skin.
The Science Behind White Tea's Skin Benefits
1. Potent Antioxidants: The Shield Against Aging
White tea leaves are harvested at a young age, preserving the maximum amount of antioxidants. These antioxidants, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), combat free radicals, which are responsible for premature aging and skin damage.
2. Skin Repair and Regeneration
White tea promotes new cell growth, speeding up the repair of damaged skin. This regenerative quality is primarily due to its rich content of polyphenols.
3. Natural UV Protection
Exposure to harmful UV rays can accelerate skin aging. White tea acts as a natural protective layer, reducing the damage caused by the sun.

Good Life Tea White Tea Recommendations
Now that you have the recipe for this rejuvenating mask, let's cover some of our best selling white teas that will also add incredible scents to your mask to be enjoyed. First, I would like to include our White Peach tea as this tea brews with an absolutely irresistible scent of juicy peaches. You will feel as though you are sashaying through the peach orchards of Georgia as you pamper your skin. Don't hesitate to sip a glass of this over ice while you are using your mask, as well to really knock this one out of the park!
If you find that you would rather feel like you are taking a nice afternoon walk through the gardens, I would recommend something with more floral notes to it. Perhaps you may try our White Peony tea in your mask. Again, this tea is delectable enjoyed in your cup, but the earthy tones to it allow transport you to garden of peonies in full bloom.
Lastly, in the summer time, we all crave the vitamin C that is present in citrus. To satisfy this craving, I recommend using our White Tangerine tea in your Skin Rejuvenation Mask! The combination of the revitalizing citrus aromas from this tea and the presence of antioxidants take this mask to the next level.
