Surely you have heard of BB Creams by now. Beauty Balms which have changed the beauty routine of women around the world. They took over South Korea by storm in 2007: Men and women celebrities alike used it to flaunt flawless skin. By 2010, the Asian continent had been revolutionized by BB creams. Marcelle launched the first Canadian-made BB Cream over a year ago already and currently offers the widest selection of BB products: BB Concealer, BB Cream-To-Powder, BB Cleanser, BB Cream Anti-Aging formula with SPF 25 and BB Cream Gold. It was a delight to find out the beauty industry had been an inspiration for Kusmi Tea, a Parisian house of tea. BB, From BB Cream to Beauty Beverage
Tea, in general, is known for its many virtues: therapeutic, soothing, antioxidant, thirst-quenching; it offers slimming properties and delights a few of our senses. In many countries and cultures, it is also famous for all the rituals around it. It is known to be a moment shared with loved ones and a way to welcome guests in a home. Serving tea is a comforting, amicable and peaceful gesture. There are many varieties of tea and their properties vary depending on what their are created with: green tea, black tea, white tea, read tea (rooibos), oolong, and flavoured teas.
Kusmi Tea recently created a wellness line and their most recent innovation is the BB Detox, the very first BB Tea! We like the idea of a beauty beverage. It sounds lovely and enchanting! BB Detox is a beauty beverage with green tea, maté and a hint of grapefruit for radiant skin. "Since detox courses, green tea and beauty go together hand in glove, Kusmi Tea has drawn inspiration from its now famous Detox tea by inventing a beauty tea in the shape of BB Detox, the very first BB tea! Kusmi Tea has decided to retain Detox tea’swonderfully wholesome, healthy core ingredients of mate and green tea, unveiled its ‘beautiful skin’ version: an all-in-one beauty tea. Following the example of BB creams, this Beauty Beverage caters to all your skin’s daily needs. BB Detox offers three ways to a more beautiful you: it gets rid of toxins and protects and moisturizes the skin – all topped off by the deliciously subtle taste of grapefruit."
What's in the BB Detox Tea to make it a beauty beverage?
1) Detox - Say goodbye to dull skin!
The perfect combination of mate and green tea has an effect on the body's capacity to eliminate excess fluids, thus stimulating the elimination of toxins. Skin finds itself more radiant and complexion is enhanced when toxins are eliminated efficiently.
Some skincare comes with SPF, however; almost all skincare is formulated with antioxidants. It protects your skin from the harmfull effects of the elements (such as pollution and free radicals), and also protects your skin cells. Antioxidants maintain skin cells healthier and younger for greater skin in time. In the BB Detox Tea, green tea (also used in cosmetic formulations and already famous for its antioxidants properties) contributes to skin protection, along with dandelion and rooibos, which add great value to the taste of the fruity beverage.
Hydrating your skin morning and evening will keep it feeling soft, supple and will delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, among its main purposes. We already know we should be drinking 2 liters of water each day to help keep our body hydrated inside out, but also to maintain good health and stay alert. Dehydration can be the culprit of fatigue, memory loss and lack of concentration. Savoring a cup of BB Detox Tea can certainly help your daily water intake, especially because we think you will love its taste! Guarana, a plant found in its concoction, is stimulating and apparently also known to improve memory retention. Just another reason to drink this beauty beverage!
"This delicious blend of maté, green tea and rooibos, flavoured with a subtle hint of grapefruit, may be enjoyed hot or iced at any time of day." Shall we call tea time right about now? I'm in the mood for some warm detoxifying beauty in a cup!
