There was an interesting article in Science Daily reporting on the preliminary results of a combination therapy of LED lights and a cream with Green Tea Extract. LED lights have long been used for phototherapy to help heal any number of inflammatory skin conditions.
However, LED exposure, like any light energy exposure can also increase the production of free radicals that can injure the skin. Green tea was added to the mix because it contains a potent antioxidant that combats this harmful effect. The results? According to the German study, the same level of wrinkle improvement occurred in only one-tenth the time it took when treated with LED light alone. This underscores the importance of addressing inflammation and free radical injury as part of any effective anti-aging regimen.No comments
