In focus: Green Tea and the Lip-To-Cheek Tints
The power of green tea is no secret to us all by now. Packed with antioxidants, it protects us from free radical damage, environmental pollutants and oxidation: in short, the things that make our skin lose firmness, appear dull and lack lustre, and accelerate the ageing process. It also gives a sustainable boost of energy, without wreaking havoc on your adrenal glands in the way the coffee does. So, when it came to selecting the best ingredients for our limited edition Lip-To-Cheek wardrobe, it was a no brainer.
Because these tiny tubes were designed to enliven your complexion and add a natural-looking seductive tint to your lips, we wanted to make sure that in addition to their incredible pigment, that they really packed a punch. That's why we chose Green Tea Extract to play such a vital role in their liquid formulation.
Firstly, we paired Green Tea Extract with Vitamin E to work synergistically to protect your lips from inflammation and free radical damage. And because the uniquely fluid consistency of our Lip-To-Cheek Tints allow your own skin to shine through, we couldn't bypass the stimulating affects of the caffeine in Green Tea Extract when it comes to a firmer, more radiant complexion. A recent study has also shown that Green Tea, when topically applied, can have an inhibitory effect on collagenase, an enzyme that breaks down collagen in the skin. The end result? An vibrant complexion, a naturally beautiful flush on your lips and energised cheeks that are nourished and protected from free radical damage.
