Straw Hats and Green Tea

Hartford York Hats - Scala Hand Crocheted Raffia Summer Hat - The GiovanniWe all know the importance of hats with respect to sun protection: cool, natural fibers like hemp provide shade from damaging rays (and also make us look fine).

But did you know that drinking green tea is another “premiere skin protectant”?

I just happened to come across that nugget of life-saving info in my daily reading of WomenFitnessNet (hey – I don’t have to defend that, OK?).

Seems that green tea “protects against direct damage to the cell and moderates inflammation, according to research from the Department of Dermatology, Columbia University, New York. Studies suggest that the catechins in green tea are some 20 times stronger in their antioxidant powers than even vitamin E. Men [my emphasis], women and children need to position this super shield on their side against the ravaging effects of the sun.”
