Whilst a fresh haircut or a new mascara can help you look your best, some of the most potent beauty weapons can be found in your local supermarket... or even your kitchen cabinet!!! Nosh yourself gorgeous with foods that you can eat and then apply. Featuring seven super samples, we look at today's food hero.... TEA!!!

In a world overflowing with gluttony and saturated with excess it is always a delight to still be able to enjoy the simple things in life and I think many would agree there are few nicer, simpler pleasures than a good old cuppa! Arguably the English’s answer to pretty much everything; it would seem there is literally no situation that can’t be recompensed by putting the kettle on! Rest assured no bad news will be delivered in any self-respecting British household without a good strong brew to help soften the blow! Well, now there is even more reason not to underestimate the humble cup of tea… so sip up!!!

All teas boast skin-boosting antioxidants, but green and white varieties are especially good because they have double the antioxidants of black tea as well as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a type of antioxidant that "protects skin from damage caused by exposure to sun and pollutants"


Tea is a also a natural hair colour enhancer that can function as a rinse to bring out highlights in dyed and undyed hair. Chamomile revitalises golden highlights in blonde hair, black tea boosts brunettes, and berry or red teas add oomph to auburn or red hair. Prepare 8 ounces, allow to cool, then saturate your strands with the solution. Put on a shower cap and wait for 15 to 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water... Because you're worth it ;)
