Tea is full of vitamins, antioxidants and all sorts of things that are great for you. It may be a popular drink but did you know you can use it to create topical products to aid your skin? Here's how!
Freeze matcha tea and use to instantly reduce puffiness and darkness around eyes. The caffeine in the tea will also make you look more awake.
Use camomile tea to reduce the itching & swelling of bug bites. Dip a cotton ball into some camomile tea and dab onto the bites. You can also use this to ease irritated skin.
Use black tea to help soothe sunburns. Steep 1-2 tea bags and rub over affected areas.
Create a toner for sensitive & acne prone with green tea. Steep tea, add 1-2 drops lemon juice. Mix 2 parts apple cider vinegar, 1 part tea. Apply with a cotton ball or dilute & use a spray bottle.
Nourish, exfoliate and moisturize your skin with a matcha face mask. This is great for acne prone skin. Mix 2 tsp matcha tea, 1tsp steeped green tea and 1/4 tsp honey. Refrigerate leftovers.
Apply to face using fingers or a foundation brush. Leave on for 5-10 minutes then rinse with warm water. Follow with green tea toner & your moisturizer.
Use black tea to soothe skin after shaving and help the overall appearance of razor burn. Soak a teabag in water and rub over the affected skin.
