Green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet. It is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia.
Several varieties of green tea exist, which differ substantially due to growing conditions, horticulture, production processing, and time of harvest.
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body.
This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits – INCLUDING BEAUTY BENEFITS!
In this post, let’s talk about how green tea can make you more beautiful, at the same time, healthier.
Beauty Hacks Using Green Tea
1.Green Tea Face Mask
For this, you’ll need:
- 2 bags of green tea
- Baking soda
Tear open those bags of green tea and mix the leaves with equal parts baking soda in a small bowl.
Take a teaspoon of this mixture and mix it up with some honey. Spread the mixture all over your face. If it needs to be diluted, add any sort of oil or water a little bit at a time and stir it up. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes.
Green tea will soothe your face, calming any irritation or redness while the honey moisturizes.
2.Green Tea Facial Cleanser
- 2 cups of brewed green tea, cooled
- Some sort of essential oil (optional)
- A clean spray bottle
Brew your green tea and let it cool for a while. Then, water it down a bit and pour it into the spray bottle. If you’d like, mix it with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
If you’re having issues with breakouts, you could go with tea tree oil. If your skin is oily, try peppermint or rosemary. Or don’t add any oil at all.
