Healthier Skin from the Inside, Out: Green Tea
Settling in for the evening with a good book and a cup of green tea is more than just relaxing…it’s also good for your skin. Green tea is filled with inflammation-fighting antioxidants and research shows that drinking it may reduce your risk of skin cancer. You can also add a squeeze of citrus juice—like lemon, lime, or orange—to give the tea’s antioxidants a boost of staying power, so they remain in your body longer and have more lasting benefits.

Chill damp tea bags in the fridge and put on eyes for 10–15 minutes. Green tea contains tannins, which act as an astringent when applied to skin and can help reduce puffiness, Perricone notes.
Drink it: Sip green tea every day for an antioxidant boost.
