With summer upon us, the sun can prove to be very harmful to your skin. In serious cases, skin cancer can arise from prolonged exposure to the suns UV rays. In addition to traditional sunscreen, green tea has recently been proven to help protect skin from the effects of the sun. Fox News reported, "Green tea is high in disease-fighting chemicals called polyphenols, which scientists say help protect against cancer-related cell damage by boosting the skin's immune system." At this time, sunscreen is still the best preventative measure for sun exposure. But a green tea spray may also give your skin the immune boosting chemicals it needs to prevent damage on a cellular level.
