ABSTRACT:
Dietary polyphenols of tea show antioxidant, anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle, anti-acne, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and skin lightening properties which are beneficial for dermal tissue. This article explores the potential of topical application of polyphenols from tea in skin care. The use of tea polyphenols as a topically applied plant extract which can penetrate in the dermis has been well documented. The findings of these studies indicate that tea polyphenols when used in an appropriate way and amount can be used to prevent skin related problems.
