When it comes to relaxation, there is only one thing better than settling down with a hot cup of green tea to calm th nerves... making yourself a green tea facial to relax and rejuvenate your skin.
Green tea is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce stress lines and wrinkles on the face, making skin more taught and youthful looking. If this isn't enough to convince you to slather some green tea on your face immediately, green tea facials have also been proven to help reduce the risk of sun cancer in animal tests! Are you slicing the cucumbers for your eyes yet?
If you're looking for a great green tea mask, you can either buy one at the store or attempt to make one yourself! A DIY project is a fun idea for a Friday or Saturday night in with a book, so here's a recipe to get you started!
To make the mask:
- 1 teaspoon of Moroccan Mint green tea, steeped lightly and strained
- 1/2 ripe avocado
