Discover the power of superfood skincare with the Tatcha collection by Victoria Tsai
Asian skincare is renowned for its use of powerful antioxidant ingredients, many of which have been passed back through generations. The Tatcha skincare range utilises many of these in a bid to craft a complexion as soft as silk. The collection is the brainchild of Victoria Tsai who was left inspired by the timeless ritual of the Japanese geisha. These women use a classic skincare regime of green tea, rice and algae which is simple yet highly hydrating, nourishing and anti-ageing. Mimicking this, the Tatcha skincare products use a blend of the same superfoods to replenish moisture levels and encourage dewy skin that will stand the test of time.
So what are the benefits of green tea, rice and algae skincare? Could they work for you? Let's find out...
Green tea infused skincare
Green tea is known to protect the skin from environmental stressors while also providing anti-aging benefits. Aiming to firm and tighten the area it's applied to, it crafts dewy skin free from fine lines. br>
Green tea as a skincare product is becoming increasingly popular as people recognise its antioxidant benefits. Despite the fact it’s been used since the 7th century, it has only recently hit the shelves in a commercial capacity. Alongside algae skincare and rice skincare, it’s carving its name as a powerful and hydrating skincare aid. You’ll certainly be green with envy if your friends reap its benefits before you do...
To try green tea infused skincare for yourself, look no further than the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist by Tatcha. The super fine particles of this daily facial spray deliver a nourishing dose of anti-aging green tea in just 2-3 spritzes.
Not just a well-loved culinary ingredient, rice is used to soothe and rebalance the skin. History shows that elegant Japanese court ladies - famed for hair so long it reached the floor - were using rice as a beauty product as long as 1,000 years ago. When left to ferment, rice becomes a valuable source of minerals, antioxidants and Vitamins B and E. Its capacity to hold and retain water means it’s highly skilled at locking in moisture, an essential trait if you hope to replenish the moisture levels in your skin.
Rice skincare is also thought to be highly anti-aging. There have been numerous reports of women using rice extract to maintain dewy skin right into their final decades of life. Victoria Tsai wholeheartedly believes in the benefits of rice skincare, hence why it features heavily in the Tatcha anti-aging products.
If you’re keen to discover the antioxidant benefits of rice skincare, why not invest in the Rice Polish Classic Foaming Enzyme Powder by Tatcha? This transformative skincare product uses polished rice enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin while deeply hydrating every pore.
The known therapeutic benefits of algae skincare grow continually as more research is done. Surviving most commonly in the water, the moisture retention skills of algae encouraged Victoria Tsai to incorporate it in the Tatcha collection. Algae is packed with antioxidants, nutrients and minerals, known to help draw toxins from the skin while nourishing your complexion.
To find out whether algae skincare could work for you, trial the Luminous Deep Hydration Firming Serum from the Tatcha skincare range. The hydrating formula harnesses the power of red algae while combining it with hyaluronic acid, known to hold a thousand times its weight in water.
Other Tatcha skincare producs
It’s not just rice, algae and green tea that are used by Tatcha to lovingly treat skin. Gold, silk, camelia oil and violet are also used due to their nourishing and hydrating properties. Try the Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm which uses soothing flower extract alongside crushed 23-karat gold flakes to nourish the lips while leaving a subtle gleam behind. The Silk Cream is another Tatcha bestseller known to harness the power of luxury silk, a super ingredient used for centuries in Asian culture.
