Great Tea Treatments

Whether it is black, red, white, green, oolong, or herbal… tea has a long standing history of soothing and comforting the mind, soul, and body. It has become common practice within spas across the globe to provide their clients with a cup of tea while they wait, relax between treatments, or at the end of a service.
Loaded with a wide range of ingredients, such as antioxidants, alpha hydroxy acid, and zinc – just to name a few, it is no wonder that tea is highly beneficial to our bodies not only through consumption but through topical use as well.

For example, green tea has been touted as a great source of relief for people suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, and dandruff. All three conditions are caused by inflammation so it is a fair assumption that the anti-inflammatory benefits from green tea would lessen the severity of the ailment. In 2007, a study published in Experimental Dermatology suggested just that when it was shown that green tea significantly lessened the severity of psoriasis in mice.
It is no wonder that skin care manufacturers are beginning to incorporate different teas into their formulations. Therefore, it should not be a surprise that tea is making an appearance into treatment rooms around the world. With that in mind, we have included several different treatments from around the country that include tea as a primary ingredient in hopes that they will inspire you with new thoughts and ideas on how to update or revitalize your service menu.
