Green Tea and Skin Benefits

Anyone who has ever traveled to the South knows that Southerners LOVE their sweet tea... For Christmas this past year, my husband's grandparents gifted my little family with a HUGE tin of assorted teas! Orange spice, peach, raspberry, green tea, earl gray... all kinds of yummy things! I've tried unsweetened teas before and never really cared for them, but I decided this week to give it another try... I am hooked! I've spent the past three days guzzling peach tea and raspberry tea... and now I am on to green tea, and I am hooked!!

I have always heard that green tea can do amazing things for the body, so while sipping on a glass of green tea with lemon, I started doing a bit of research. Did you know that the antioxidants in green tea can help lower cholesterol, help ward off cancer, help prevent heart attacks, and can even help you lose weight?

Green tea is even beneficial for your skin! People who use green tea on their faces claim that they have seen new brightness and more even-toned skin, as well as more youthful looking skin. Here's a few ideas that you can try:
  • Brew some strong green tea and cool it. Store it in a spray bottle and spray your face in the morning.
  • After brewing tea, open the used tea bag and remove the leaves. Add the leaves to a face cream (like a face mask or Noxema-type cream and apply to your face. Leave it on for about 5 minutes, then wash.
  • Make a homemade face mask! Mix up pureed cucumber, honey, french green clay (You can find this at health food stores in the Health/Bath section) and green tea leaves for a soothing, rejuvenating mask!
You can even use green tea in homemade toothpaste. Just follow our recipe and substitute green tea for water! Lemon extract may make for a great flavor!
