Rooibos tea is the most loved tea in South Africa. Grown in our own nourishing soil, Rooibos tea is not only a common household drink, it is also used for health and beauty treatments.
Annique Salon & Day Spa absolutely loves Rooibos, which is why we use it in so many of our products! Rooibos is full of antioxidants and minerals and boasts the following wonderful advantages:
Have you heard about the superoxide dismutase enzyme? Rooibos is packed with this anti-aging substance, which:
- Aids in the production of healthy skin-producing cells
- Combats wrinkles
Rooibos tea is also rich in alpha-hydroxy acid and zinc, which soothes skin and alleviates:
- Uneven skin tone
Alpha-hydroxy acid is common in many skincare products as it gives your skin an illuminating glow and reduces wrinkles.
Zinc is also very important for healthy, clear skin as it, heals wounds, aids with the building of the structure of cell membranes, protects against UV rays and has anti-inflammatory properties.
The tea can either be applied to the affected area or consumed to take effect.
Rooibos contains zinc, copper, potassium and calcium, which are all important for healthy hair growth. Regularly drinking Rooibos tea will increase hair growth and strength as well as potentially prevent hair loss.
As the tea also has anti-inflammatory properties, it may also alleviate symptoms of dandruff.
The polyphenols in the tea promote shiny, smooth and healthy hair while protecting the hair follicles from sun damage
Rooibos tea has minerals, including calcium, fluoride and manganese, which promote healthy teeth.
Fluoride, which is found in most toothpaste and mouthwashes, protects teeth and prevents tooth decay; calcium keeps teeth strong and healthy; and manganese stimulates enzymes in the body, which causes the increase of bone mass and damage repair.
Rooibos tea is a very healthy drink for anyone trying to lose weight to drink. If you switch your morning cup of coffee to Rooibos tea, you can effectively lose up to 3 and a half kilograms of weight in a year. The 2 main reasons that the tea promotes a slim figure is that it:
- Contains little calories
- Is naturally sweet
Catechins, also found in Rooibos tea, have also been linked to fat burning.
Rooibos tea also promotes sleep. This means that your beauty sleep does not have to get disrupted during the night. It can be used as an alternative to insomnia pills in some cases as the ingredients cause you to become calmer and more relaxed.
