Boost that healthy skin glow, the tea to soothe your skin and the knowledge to take it that step further.
"Making Skin Magic" has been written by our ambassador; qualified Chinese medicine practitioner, Nat Kringoudis. She explains the underlying causes of skin issues including pimples, eczema, uneven skin tone, boils, rashes and acne. From there, she highlights how you can learn to read your skin type, deciphering the foods to eat/foods to avoid - so YOU can achieve glowing skin.
Our ambassador, Dr. Nat Kringoudis TCM explains how Skin Magic Tea works within the body;
"The prime ingredient in Skin Magic Tea is Aloe Vera. Aloe is a common house hold name known for its cleansing and clearing abilities. It helps to nourish and rejuvenate the skin, meaning not only does it go to work on feeding your skin but equally to hydrate, clear heat (think cystic, sore pimples) and drain away any inflammation. It achieves all this through its unique ability to drain heat via urination.
Liquorice root and lotus seed hearts are also two powerful players in Skin Magic Tea. Liquorice root is known to be harmonising and nourishing. Because it is sweet in flavour, it works on digestion (and that’s where it all begins). It also aids the spleen and stomach in assimilating nutrients. Sometimes when our gut health is compromised we can’t adequately utilise the nutrients we consume, because our bodies can’t easily digest it. If we can’t use the fuel from food, then our bodies miss out on a important nutrients, which means that we may experience more acne flare ups simply because the body is missing elements that are vital to nourish skin. "

According to Dr Nat TCM, Antioxidants are wonderful little molecules bursting with all the good stuff. Essentially they help you turn back the clock and fight the signs of ageing and damage. As the name suggests, Antioxidant tea is a powerful force that reverses the effects your environment has had on your bodies (oxidation). Visualise an old rusty piece of iron; this is oxidation at its finest. Now, imagine the effect your environment has had on your body thanks to your diet, lifestyle, pollutants, toxins, stress. All of these factors have a huge impact on you – leading to damage just like the rusty iron. They all contribute to placing a load on you that goes right down to how your cells interact. It's a good thing we understand too well the effects of stress and have collaborated a special mix of herbs known as Antioxidant Tea to help you counteract the effects of stress and ageing.
