Top 4 Ways to Use Green Tea on Your Skin

Apart from drinking the magical green liquid, Green Tea can also be used in a multitude of other ways as face packs and scrubs to help you attain your goal of achieving perfectly glowing skin.

  1. Face pack with honey

After each cup of green tea that you drink, cut the teabag open and empty its contents into a small cup. Add a little honey and mix it well to form a paste. Wash your face and make sure it is clean before you apply the paste, leave it on for five minutes then wash it off.

  1. As a cleanser

Mix the contents of a teabag that has been run under hot water with two spoons of a cream cleanser to get a mixture that looks like a thick white cream with green specks in it. Rub it on your face, leave it on for five minutes and wash it off.

  1. Green tea and yoghurt facial

First steep a green tea bag in boiling water. Remove the teabag and wait for it to cool slightly. Open the tea bag and press the leaves onto your skin as evenly as possible. After five minutes use full-fat plain yoghurt and apply it onto the face evenly. Wait for another five to ten minutes and wipe it off with a lukewarm damp washcloth.

  1. As a rinse

If you don’t have the time for cleanses or facials every day, the easiest thing you can do is to make some green tea and let it cool for a while before washing your face with it. A simple wash with green tea can do wonders for your skin.

If you’ve always wanted to have flawless, glowing, silky smooth skin you have now found the first step. Organic green tea is the beginning to the new, beautiful you.
