You’ve heard of green tea – but what about white?

White, green and black tea all originate from the same plant, the camellia sinensis. What differentiates each type of tea is the age when picked and the length of time the plant is processed. White tea is picked the earliest and processed for the shortest amount of time, so this means that it retains the highest levels of antioxidants and skin supportive compounds!

Whether it's allergies, irritated skin or too much sun, we always keep white tea on hand to help reduce summer skin irritations! 

Keep allergies at bay

Keep our White Tea Toning Eye Gelin the fridge and dab under eyes and nose as needed to help reduce allergy symptoms this summer. White tea is high in an important antioxidant phytonutrient called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which can help reduce the production of chemicals that cause uncomfortable allergy symptoms.

Reduce dark circles

Apply a small amount of White Tea Toning Eye Gelto index fingers and lightly dab around the bony part of the eye to help reduce dark circles! The skin around the eye area is sensitive and susceptible to damage from sun exposure, making dark circles more pronounced. Luckily, studies have shown high levels of antioxidants in white tea can help prevent and repair UV damage!

Ease bug bites

If you're in a pinch and the bugs are biting, dab a bit of our White Tea Toning Eye Gel on affected areas. Specific flavonols in white tea including quercetin and kaempferol can help reduce inflammation and ease annoying itching!
