We are all aware of the health benefits when drinking green tea but have you thought about the benefits of the teabag once you've brewed and drank your cup of green tea?
The small teabag packed full of natural ingredients can work wonders for your skin. Instead of throwing your tea bags away once you've brewed your tea allow the bags to cool down and place them over your eyes. Green tea contains tannin that can help to shrink the skin. The cool teabags will reduce the swelling and dark circles around your eyes and will help to tighten your skin making you look and feel fabulous!
Since the green tea will help to tighten your skin it will make a good green tea facial scrub, simply open the tea bag and mix with sea salt, granulated sugar, lemon juice and a small amount of natural yogurt and mix. Scrub the mixture onto your skin and in small circles rub it all over your face, be careful of your eye area, once you've scrubbed your whole face wipe it off with a damp cloth. You can store the scrub in your fridge to keep it fresh for longer. The scrub is all natural and it will give you an incredible glow.
For a nourishing face mask mix equal amounts of baking soda, green tea and a small amount of honey, honey, especially Manuka Honey will help to rejuvenate your skin and green tea will help to tighten the skin. Baking Soda will help to detox the skin and it’s a good exfoliator. Massage the mask over your face, avoiding the eye area and leave the mask for 10 minutes, wipe off with a damp cloth.
If you’re short on time brew the tea bag as usual and take the bag out and run it under cold water, squeeze out most of the water and rub the bag over your face for a few minutes for an instant glow
