This week the Ladies from Beijos Events are sharing some fun, natural ways to relax and soothe our skin with Green Tea. It’s something I drink multiple cups of to get going each morning. I had no idea how good it can be for our skin! Check out their suggestions and pop over to their blog for more daily inspiration. It’s always so fun to pop in on Abby and photograph her latest ideas. Creative mama, she is!
Here is what Abby from Beijos says (taken straight from her blog):
Green Tea & Honey Mask
Green Tea Bag + Honey
Mix moistened green leaves (just cut open a green tea bag that has been dipped in water a few times) with honey to form a paste and coat your entire face – leave for 15 minutes and rinse with warm water.
*Green tea is packed full of antioxidants which is awesome for preventing redness + blackheads….this mask is great for spot treatments, too.
Tired Mama + Tired Eyes
Caffeine + Tannins
If you look at the ingredients in your eye cream, you will notice most of them have caffeine and tannins…. both which are also in your morning cup of tea!
Caffeine can help shrink blood vessels around your eye, thus reducing puffiness and dark circles + tannins stimulate healthy blood circulation and help tighten and soothe skin.
At the same time you are relaxing sipping your tea and allowing that green tea masks to brighten your skin… throw on some tea bags on your tired eyes….
Grab a couple more of your tea bags that you used in your mask and soak in hot water for about 20 minutes…. take out and allow to cool… then simply throw on top of your eyes… most important part… Relax!!
