White tea, renowned for its delicate flavor and numerous health benefits, also offers remarkable effects on skin health. Packed with antioxidants, particularly polyphenols, white tea helps combat free radicals and oxidative stress, thus reducing the signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines. 

Its anti-inflammatory properties aid in soothing irritated skin, while its antibacterial properties assist in fighting acne-causing bacteria, promoting clearer and healthier skin overall.
