Yesterday, I wrote about the beauty benefits of green tea. Today, I am up with a DIY facial using green tea. I personally use this DIY facial once every 15 days and I have been using this since 3 months. I had seen a difference in the texture of my skin, even the blemishes and freckles that I had on my face are fading. So read on to know, the step wise procedure to do a green tea facial at home.
Cleaning is really important before you start your facial. Cleansing prepares the skin by removing dirt.
- Half tbsp chilled curd/ yoghurt
- 1 green tea bag
- 1/3 cup warm water
Put the tea bag in warm water till the color of water turns slightly green. Mix the green tea water with chilled curd. Then, massage your face with this cleanser for 5-10 minutes in upward strokes.
Exfoliating is very important for your skin care regimen because it helps to remove dead skin cells.
- 10-15 tbsp Green tea water
Add sugar to green tea water. Gently exfoliate your face with this solution in circular motions for 10 minutes to remove dead skin.
Steaming is the third step of facial. It opens the skin pores and helps to remove toxins and impurities build up on the skin.
To steam your face you can use a face steamer, or for an alternative take a plastic vessel and fill it with hot water. Now, cut and open a green teabag and empty the content into the hot water. Lean your face over the vessel and put a towel on your head making like a tent shape. Be very careful as the hot water can burn your face. You can also put rose petals or lavender, rosemary essential oils to maximize the effect. Take steam for at least 10-15 minutes. Then, wash your face with cold water.
Face mask cleans skin from deep inside. It pulls the impurities out of your skin and gives flawless, radiant, glowing skin.
- 1 tbsp Honey
- Green tea leaves.
- Any essential oil (optional)
Mix all the ingredients. Now, massage this paste on to your face in circular motions. Leave it on for 20-25 minutes. Then, rinse with cold water.
Toner calms down the facial cells and helps to moisturize as well.
- 5-6 drops of Vitamin E oil
- 2 tbsp aloe vera juice/ gel
- 3 tbsp cucumber juice
- 3-4 tbsp green tea water
- spray bottle
Mix all the ingredients. Spray or apply to face. No need to wash as it is all natural. You can also store this toner and use just this, regularly twice for glossy skin. Make just for 3-4 uses. Store in refrigenetor.
The toner already has moisturizing properties but you can use your daily moisturizer.
This was my secret for blemish free skin. Try this girls for it really works. The results would be visible after minimum two uses.
