Most of us try to get the best skin care possible for us, but with all of the claims of being the best and doing the best, which one are we supposed to believe? Have you ever looked at the ingredients on the skin care products? Not to mention have you looked at the cost?? Personally, I believe that the best skin care is natural skin care.
Believe it or not, you can make your very own skin care that includes green tea! Now the biggest question that comes to mind is cost and time, but in all honesty, it costs less, you get MORE and it doesn’t take much time! This is your best bet as green tea has anti-aging and antioxidant properties that your skin would LOVE. If you need a toner, you can mix green tea, lemon balm and pepper mint. With toners you are helping balance the PH of your skin and is beneficial for all skin types. Have wrinkles that you want to diminish? Try the same mixture as a facial steam!
If you are like most people, you wash your face at least every other day, even if it is just in the shower. Most face washes or scrubs out there dry out your skin too much. They also end up drying out your skin in excess, which can cause your skin to produce more oil. There is a tincture for a facial cleanse that includes, almonds, oatmeal, lavender, French green clay, matcha green tea, and lavender essential oil. Granted, this particular tincture isn’t good for people who are allergic to almonds, but it works great for a gentle cleanse or even a mask. This is great for dry skin and sensitive skin.
Got a sunburn or need cooling off? Not a problem, try this peppermint and green tea cooling mist! It contains water, peppermint leaf, green tea leaf and peppermint essential oil. When you are hot, or have sunburn you can apply this to your skin! You can store this tincture for up to a week in the refrigerator.
Last but not least there is a green tea compress. This is great for many reasons, including the anti-oxidant properties of the green tea. For this you just make some sencha green tea leaf, let is steep then let it cool completely. Once that is done you can put it on a cloth and apply the cloth directly to the skin!
