You’ve heard it a thousand times before: tea is good for you! You should drink it every day – it helps you lose weight, it keeps you hydrated and it even fights cancer. But if you’re not so much into drinking the stuff, there are other ways to benefit from its properties. Tea is good for your skin from inside and out, having antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-aging properties. It soothes skin inflammation, reduces acne and, apparently, it prevents hair loss! Read on to find out our top DIY personal "spring cleaning" beauty recipes.

 

Peppermint Steam Facial 

Ingredients: 

  • At least 3 table spoons of a mint based tea. We love Midnight Mint for it's pore opening quality and therapeutic scent 
  • Boiling water

Poor water over large bowl containing tea. Put your face over steam (at least 12 inches from heat), using a towel over your head so that the steam does not escape. Allow steam to penetrate the skin for at least 5-10 minutes. Moisturize afterward to seal in moisture.

Medical research has shown that steam by itself to have interesting health benefits. It helps soften the skin, and increase the absorption of topical treatments. It can also improve circulation.

Black Tea Eye De-Puffer

Ingredients: 

In a shallow dish, steep the bags of tea just enough so that they are wet. Let cool, or place in fridge. Place over eyes for 10 minutes. The tannins in the tea help to constrict blood vessels thus reducing puffiness. 

 

Green Tea Toner

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 tsp of matcha green tea. Our Matcha made in Heaven is an antioxidant rich tea that is perfect for this brew.
  • Half a lemon
  • Hot water
  • Essential oil of your choice 
  • Empty spray bottle

Whisk matcha in 1 cup of hot water, add lemon and 3-4 drops of essential oil. Let cool and add to a spray bottle of your choice. The high quality matcha contains powerful antioxidants and polyphenols that are an excellent way to to reduce redness, and restore hydration while the lemon juice helps to brighten skin.
