Beauty From Within

Posted: September 21, 2015

We all crave that beautifully glowing, radiant skin when we wake up in the mornings that you don’t have to rely on a load of highlighter and a tinted moisturiser in order to achieve. When we think of glowing, luminous skin we instantly think beauty products, which highlighter will make me glow? Which foundation will cover my blemishes? Although this is one way to go around fighting skin problems, in order for them to be treated and actually improve, it’s another story.

Forget the foundations, ditch the blushes and highlight and focus on beauty from within and how what you’re putting inside you can affect your skin on the outside. We all know how important drinking water is to aid hydration and to fight dry, dehydrated skin but what many people don’t realise is just how good green tea is for your skin, and not just any green tea, Clipper Green tea.

Circle

Adding green tea into your diet can help relieve dark circles and can brighten up your skin. A mug of pure green tea in the mornings will hydrate your skin for a day of work, targeting fatigued complexions that need a break. Not only is green tea beneficial to put into your body, but you can also use it as part of your traditional beauty routine too. Simply remove your bag and leave it to dry and you can then place it on your skin to help calm, soothe and reduce redness.

Green tea is a bit of an all-rounder in the beauty department. Whether you prefer Cranberry, Lime, Ginger or Lemon, you can ditch the makeup when you’re sipping a green tea a day.

Using green tea as part of my beauty regime is something I’ve started doing regularly and the benefits I’ve noticed have been incredible. One beauty treatment I’ve seen noticeable changes from is performing a Green Tea Steam which acts as a mini facial in your kitchen. Simply brew a green tea and hover over a large mug. The steam opens up pores, letting the anti oxidants get right into your skin and it draws out any impurities. Better yet, you can pour the remaining tea into a bottle and use it as an every day toner, result.

With love from Clipper!

We've gone a bit bonkers at Clipper HQ and decided we wanted to share the love with our lovely Clipper tea drinkers out there! We’ve created 3 Limited Edition tea caddies and each comes FREE with our special packs of Fairtrade Everyday Tea, Organic Everyday Tea and Pure Green tea (80 tea bags).

We’ve also made thousands of unbleached Clipper tea-towels and popped them into other packs of our Fairtrade Everyday Tea (80 bags). There are 4 different designs to look out for. And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve only gone and put 100% more tea bags into boxes of our Pure Green Tea 26  Bags – yes we’ve squeezed 52 bags in there!

Read more about which gifts we’ll be bestowing by clicking on the images below.

All this Clipper loveliness will be in supermarkets from the end of October.
