Increased circulation stimulates collagen production

Healthy circulation is imperative for collagen production and a lack of this structural protein will leave your skin sagging and at an increased risk of fine lines and wrinkles.

By drinking an infusion of warming spices, you’ll help to boost your circulation naturally (just feel that healthy rush of blood around your body) and you’ll help to stimulate collagen production so you can enjoy a firmer, plumper, more youthful complexion. 

Increased circulation also provides an instant glow

So this is actually our favorite part of drinking Chai tea TBH…

The instant rosy glow as our blood flows closer to the surface of our skin!

Not only does improved circulation mean improved collagen production, it also means more luminous and radiant looking skin with a beautiful healthy flush.

And these results are evident after just a few sips!

Spices help to reduce inflammation

Another excellent perk of this unique blend of herbs and spices is the anti-inflammatory benefits they provide.

Drinking chai tea regularly will help to reduce inflammation in your skin which will help to calm down any irritation associated with inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea or eczema.

You may experience less redness and itchiness, some common uncomfortable side-effects of inflammation. 

Black tea provides potent antioxidant protection

Like green tea, another popular superstar drink, black tea is rich in a class of two very powerful antioxidants, namely catechins and polyphenols.

These incredible antioxidants help to fight off bacteria that may contribute to acne breakouts, as well as neutralize free radicals that increase the signs of aging. 

We hope this article has inspired you to start drinking this wonderful tea! Not only is Chai brilliant for your skin, these antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects are just as excellent for your internal health and may help to reduce your risk of disease. 

You really can drink your way to healthier skin and a healthier body!
