Green tea has amazing effects on our body. It can successfully be used to treat acne, cellulite, wrinkles, skin spots or skin irritations. Here are 5 efficient beauty treatments based on green tea which you can easily try at home:
Green tea powder mask
Mix a tablespoon of green tea powder (which you can get by cutting open a green tea bag) with a tablespoon of water. Leave it to sit for a few minutes and then apply it on your face and neckline. Leave it on for 5 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. You can use a cotton disk to get most of it off before rinsing. The antioxidants in the green tea will be deeply absorbed in the skin, nurturing it and protecting it against wrinkles.
UV’s, hormonal fluctuations, as well as some medicines can cause the appearance of skin spots. Green tea can help with that. In a cup of warm green tea add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Use a cotton disk to apply the solution on your skin and leave to act for 10 minutes before rinsing it off.
Due to its antioxidant properties and theine content, which is a substance resembling caffeine, green tea is a powerful ally against cellulite. And if you combine it with seaweed, you will definitely see major results.
To prepare a cellulite wrap based on green tea, here’s what you need to do: mix a cup of seaweed powder with concentrated green tea infusion (5-6 bags per cup). Apply the obtained mixture on the areas affected by cellulite and wrap with plastic foil. Leave to act for at least 20 minutes and then rinse it off.
To get rid of dark circles, all you have to do is to keep a few used green tea bags in the fridge overnight or until cold for immediate use. Apply the tea bags under your eyes and leave on for a few minutes.
To shrink dilated pores take advantage of the astringent properties of green tea. Keep green tea infusion in the fridge, in a spray bottle and use it to spray your face every morning.
