Green tea is the superstar of teas. After water, it’s probably the healthiest thing you could drink! And that can only mean one thing: it’s great for your skin as well! Packed with nutrients and antioxidants, green tea has been used for centuries to neutralize free radicals and delay signs of aging. Whether you choose something as simple as toning your face with green tea or a slightly more advanced recipe for homemade sunscreen, these beauty uses are the perfect place to start:
You only need coconut oil and green tea to create this soft, ultra-hydrating and good for the skin body moisturizer! And did we mention it’s naturally green?
The easiest way to give your skin its B vitamin, folate, manganese, potassium and caffeine fix: a simple, 1-ingredient facial toner!
When applied to the skin, green tea has the ability to absorb UV rays. Mixed with zinc oxide and oils, it makes a wonderful natural sunscreen that won’t disappoint.
