teaGreen tea might be one of the healthiest things we can consume, based on everything from ancient remedies to current medical research. Green tea has a number of healing properties, and also agents that some scientists believe may be able to prevent or even combat cancer.

Green tea also happens to be good for the waistline and is used by many people as a way to help them lose weight.

It’s not just good for your internal health, however. Green tea can also be incredibly beneficial to the health of your skin.

Below are four ways this particular type of tea can be excellent to solve common issues related to the health of your skin:

Soothing Sunburns

Getting too much sun is one of the worst overall things many of us can do for our health. Over-exposure to the sun can lead to tissue damage and even deadly forms of skin cancer. If you do accidentally get too much sun, using green tea on the affected areas can sooth inflammation and may even be helpful to alleviate some of the cell damage. It’s easy to use green tea for sunburns, just by using the bags themselves as a cool compress.

Psoriasis Help

Some research has been done in the laboratory showing green tea can slow the production of skin cells, which can lead to more optimal regulation of the life cycle of skin’s cells. This shows promise in helping people with issues such as dandruff and even psoriasis, which is otherwise difficult to manage. Even in a general sense, green tea is soothing, which can help alleviate the discomfort that comes with many common skin conditions, including psoriasis.

Foot Care

The skin on our feet can often take a beating throughout the day whether it’s from our jobs, or from being physically active. When the skin of your feet experiences issues, such as calluses, it’s not only a discomfort, but it can also lead to poor form when exercising, which can contribute to more severe injuries. To help soothe sore feet and also soften the skin before removing calluses, it can be beneficial to soak them in a green tea bath. The benefits of a green tea bath are perfect for not only feet but the skin all over our entire body, which goes along with the research showing the positive effect of green tea on skin cancer and damage from free radicals.


Green tea, as mentioned above, is useful for reducing inflammation, which is one of the primary contributors to acne on the skin. It makes an excellent simple, inexpensive and natural remedy for acne and other skin blemishes, as well as rapid aging when it’s used topically as well as when it’s brewed and consumed. In addition to acne present on the face, green tea may be beneficial for acne found other common areas, such as the back and chest, and it can also help reduce or eliminate blocked pores and excessive oils on the skin.

Green tea is considered by many in both the health and beauty industries to be one of the most potent substances available. It’s beneficial in so many ways for health in a holistic sense, but it has specific abilities to help the health of the skin as well.

4 Ways Poor Hygiene Inhibits Your Social Life

femalewashingfaceWhat comes to your mind when you think about hygiene?

It’s probably a set of habits like washing hands, teeth brushing, and clean dressing, all aiming to maintain good health, prevent germ spreading and infecting other people. That’s right, but not entirely.

Hygiene isn’t only about personal health. It’s also about the health of the people surrounding you. That’s how great leaders build their relationships. They are very selective to whom they invite into their inner circle. They build win-win relationships, where everybody can share and learn valuable experiences.

Safety is the basis on which successful relationships are built. All candidates, without being informed, are going through an appearance-control where access is restricted to everyone with bad hygiene, because they can serve the development of diseases.

So, before trying to get someone’s attention make sure you don’t do the below mistakes.

Hand washing: let’s imagine you are at Starbucks, waiting for your ordered breakfast. Meanwhile, the waiter comes out of the toilet, wraps your order and handles it to you. Let’s assume that he didn’t wash his hands, and you know about that. Would you still eat that? You’ll feel somewhat uncomfortable about it. Right?

It’s a well-known fact, that not washing your hands after using the toilet, taking the bin out or sneezing may spread germs and infect the people through hand shaking, or handing them food, money or any other object.

When someone notices that you’re not used to wash your hands properly, it raises the red flags for them.

brushteethTeeth brushing: your smile represents you. An attractive smile may predispose, while an unattractive smile may turn you off.

If you don’t brush your teeth, they are likely to become discolored, get cavities and possibly fall out. A smile like this isn’t going to benefit you when you’ll want to impress someone. Not to mention the situation when you speak out and the person smells your bad breath. This is an epic fail.

Bath regularly: bathing keeps your body clean, fresh and odor free. Ignoring showering with shampoo and soap causes bacteria expansion on your body. It settles in the moisturized and hairy parts of the body, which are perfect environments for its development. When it gets in contact with sweat your body eliminates an unpleasant body odor.

Bad body odor isn’t helping you at building relationships. To prevent disturbing people make sure your body is clean and fresh. For improved confidence use a deodorant.

Wear clean clothes: Don’t wear the same clothes for too long. Clothes worn the second day are dirtier than yesterday. They soak the moisture of your body and smell bad, and also get stained, dirty and look bad.

It’s a complete fail showing up in public wearing dirty clothes. This shows your disrespect towards their community. Secondly, it leaves the impression of a careless man about you. And these two circumstances aren’t doing you any favor in building relationships.

Personal grooming: aim to present yourself in the best possible way. The way you look, dress and feel speaks volumes about your character, and how people perceive you.

Personal grooming isn’t just for wealthy people. Anyone can look polished. You need to put a little extra time in your appearance and you’ll look a successful man. Embrace personal hygiene habits, style your hair and dress better. This improves your self-esteem and confidence.

That’s why, apparently more beautiful people, don’t get the opportunities that others have. That’s because well groomed and healthy people are better perceived by the society.
