14 Beauty Hack Uses for Green Tea

3.Green Tea Facial Steamer

Pour hot water in a big mug (opening about 4 inches wide) and dip the green tea bags. Rest your face above it ri so that the steam gets all up in your pores. Do this before you put any makeup on, and cleanse your face after with a splash of cold water.

4.Green Tea Eye Mask

This green tea trick really does help to reduce puffiness and darkness under my eyes temporarily. Steep the tea for a few minutes, and then remove the bags from the water.

Wring out all the water, and place the bags in the fridge for a bit.

After they’ve cooled down quite a bit, lie down with the bags over your eyes for 20-30 minutes. Put on some jams and zone out.

5.Green Tea Hair Rinse for Hair Loss

Catechin in green tea checks hair loss and slows down the growth of dihydrotestosterone that mainly causes hair fall. Besides, the antiseptic properties of green tea wards off several hair problems.

You can use green tea for hair loss as it contains some of the most powerful antioxidants and agents, which help strengthen your hair and these include:

  • Green tea contains B vitamin (panthenol), which you usually find in hair care products (especially conditioner); it helps control split ends, softens your hair, and strengthens your hair follicle. Drinking or direct application onto your scalp will help stimulate the growth of healthy hair.
  • Scientists found that green tea contains the antioxidant “EGCG” (or epigallocatechin gallate) that has the ability to stimulate hair growth. In addition, by applying green tea directly on the scalp, it results in a significant elongation of the hair follicle.
  • The anti-inflammatory properties in green tea help to stop hair loss and even promote the growth of new hair. That means that you can use it to cleanse your scalp and fight scalp infections that may weaken your hair roots. Remember that healthy scalp makes it more possible for hair to grow.
  • Green tea contains DHT-blockers called “5-alpha-reductase”. Because green tea helps block DHT “Dihydrotestosterone”, it helps stop one of the main causes ofbaldness. The good news is that unlike prescriptive hair loss treatments, it has no side effects. [Source]
