Beauty Secrets: The Amazing Benefits of Tea

December 01, 2015 2 min read

Coffee seems to be the go-to wake-up beverage of people all over, but there's something to be said for tea, too. And while some people opt for English Breakfast, if you're into your skin, you should try a less oxidized version, which do a whole lot of good. From boosting energy levels and suppressing stress to alleviating allergy symptoms, they offer up a multi-dimensional cup of goodness. Want to know what the best leaves to drink are? To make the most of your skin, these ones will do the trick.

1. White tea

White tea is looked at like champagne, and is made from the buds of the tea plant. It consists of the very first crop of leaves harvested each season. The least oxidized tea, it is very light and delicate, with only small amount of caffeine yet a ton of antioxidants that can reduce inflammation, which can, in turn, help to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and hinder the process of aging.

2. Green tea

Green tea is a bit more oxidized than white tea, and can range from mellow to floral to vegetal. It is high in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, and works to fight off UV damage to the skin. Green tea is very hydrating, and is well-known for its detoxifying properties as well. With half the caffeine of black tea, it is packed with catechins and polyphenols, which are two antioxidants that fight both acne as well as aging. Matcha is currently big on the scene, and is a finely ground powder that is made from whole green tea leaves. It both boosts energy as well as lowers blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and can promote glowing skin since it helps to reduce bodily toxins. Matcha can also be used as a topical treatment. DIY face mask anyone?

3. Rooibos

Red tea comes from a South African plant that is caffeine-free. It is used in a variety of cosmetic products like facial washes and cleansers, and can both rehydrate as well as provide antioxidants to the pores when spritzed on. It can also add a touch of color to brunette hair or a reddish tint to blonde hair. Do you take advantage of any of these teas regularly? Source: Cosmopolitan

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
