Here’s one more reason to go green: Green tea has a high concentration of catechins, which have strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-aging effects on skin.

Studies have shown that using a lotion or serum containing green tea 30 minutes before going out in the sun can reduce DNA damage and the risk of sunburn. “If you’re going to be outside for several hours and won’t be able to reapply sunscreen as diligently as you’d like,” says Wu, “then applying green tea on top of your sunscreen before you go out is a great idea.”
