In-the-know cosmetics giants have long used Kombucha in their skin renewal formulas.
A 2012 L’Oreal Research & Innovation Study found that Kombucha extract was “beneficial to the skin, helping to maintain moisture and elasticity so it appears more even in tone and texture.”
In America Kombucha-related skin renewal formulas are fast gaining momentum, so much so that The Huffington Post recently recommend their seven favorite beauty products using the fermented tea:

2 Murad Pore & Line Minimizing Hydrator $50 Sephora.com I was already a huge fan of this lightweight moisturizer before taking a closer look at its ingredients label. It leaves your irritated skin calm and virtually poreless.
3 Avalon Organics Lavender Luminosity Revitalizing Eye Gel $20 Walgreens.com This gel is free of parabens, synthetic colours and fragrances. Instead, you’ll get a soothing mix, including aloe vera and lavender.
