Revitalize your skin with green tea

Green tea tops this list of eight foods that can help improve your skin.

Drink two to four cups of green tea per day. "It has a high content of flavonoid/catechins [which can help to strengthen collagen] and of theanine -- an amino acid associated with relaxation and cortisol control. Too much cortisol can induce disruptions in blood sugar and inflammation," says Shawn M. Talbott, author of Cortisol Control and the Beauty Connection (Hunter House, 2007).

Note everyone's smooth, healthy-looking skin. (Click on this photo to view our album of recent photos from Aso, Japan, home of Mellow Monk's Green Tea.)
