While many medical studies debunk the effectiveness of drinking green tea to ward against cancer, some have shown that Polyphenols (primarily found in green tea) can help reduce the risk of sun-related cancers by protecting the skin from sun damage.
Instead of blocking UV rays as sunscreen does, these antioxidants "quench" free radicals and reduce inflammation, which is why by conjoining the benefits of Polyphenols and sunscreen, skin may be better protected from harmful UV rays.
