Health and wellness are top priorities for many Americans, and for good reason.
With a wide range of herbal remedies for skin and hair, it’s important to keep a balance of antioxidants, anti-aging agents, and probiotics.
And when it comes to getting that perfect complexion, there are many options out there.
But which one works best for you?
That’s where quince herb tea comes in.
Quince herb is a natural and nutritious source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, making it an ideal source for skin.
According to Dr. Michael S. Smith, a professor of dermatology and dermatology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, “quince herbal teas have been shown to lower skin damage caused by both UV and heat exposure.”
In addition, it can lower inflammation and improve skin barrier function.
Quince is also a great source of protein, magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin B-6.
Plus, it helps to keep skin hydrated and keeps it feeling youthful.
“You want to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of water every other day,” said Smith, who has also been a board member for the Quince Association of America, an industry group for quince growers and suppliers.
“There are so many other things you can do to get your skin and scalp looking and feeling healthier.
That’s what I would recommend.””
A good hydration supplement is the key to maintaining good skin and healthy hair,” said Salk Institute President and CEO, Dr. Daniel R. Salk, who added that the best hydration supplements for hair are the ones that contain vitamins C, E, and A. “If you take a supplement that contains vitamins, you can be much more hydrated.”
To determine if you’re looking for a healthy quince tea recipe, Smith recommended looking for one that has a lot of antioxidants.
The most common type of quince-based product in the U.S. contains the amino acid guarana, which is thought to be a natural antioxidant and antiaging agent.
The antioxidants in guaranas are called carotenoids, which are thought to help prevent skin damage by increasing cell turnover.
Salk Institute recommends consuming a mixture of quincys, guarans, and/or rosemary leaves for each dose of the product, and to drink water as a hydration drink.
The quince products in Smith’s quince teas are a great option for people who prefer a more balanced intake.
“We recommend the same ingredients that we recommend for the other supplements,” he said.
“In terms of a hydrating supplement, I would probably suggest using a hydrogel or gel,” said Dr. David M. Bock, a board-certified dermatologist and president of the National Board of Dermatology.
“They are both water-soluble and they are both absorbable.
They both help hydrate your skin.”
Another way to hydrate is to drink lots of water before bed.
This is because when your body is dehydrated, it becomes more susceptible to oxidative stress, which can lead to skin damage and skin cancer.
For this reason, Bock recommends drinking at least five cups of water per day.
If you’re prone to insomnia, drinking at night might help.
“If you drink enough water, you won’t be tired all the time,” he added.
“That will help you sleep better.”
“If it’s a very dry skin, it’ll also help with that,” said Bock.
“In that case, I’d probably suggest a little bit more.”
Salk recommends using a sunscreen that contains vitamin A or E, as well as a sunscreen with a SPF value of 30 or higher.
“Those are the kinds of things that we would recommend, especially if you have sensitive skin,” he advised.
“A good sunscreen will help with both UVB and UVA [UVB and visible light].”
While Smith recommends taking a lot more water than recommended, Salk also says that the most important thing to remember is that hydration can help keep skin healthy and radiant.
“Just remember, the more water you drink, the better it will hydrate you,” he explained.
