Benefits Of Green Tea
The benefits of green tea have been touted for years. Not many beverages pack the antioxidant punch found in green tea! It helps boost the immune system, hydrates the body, and may even fight against certain types of cancer.
Green tea does have a distinctive taste. If you’re not so excited about reaping its enormous benefits through consumption, what about incorporating its advantages into your DIY beauty recipes? We compiled some of our favorite green tea beauty recipes for you to experiment with below!
One note about tea: to make these recipes, be sure to use pure tea that contains no additives or flavors. You don’t want to put added rubbish on your face! Find a tea brand that contains 100% tea leaves and is preferably organic. Also, use freshly brewed tea to get the full benefit of all the flavonoids in tea; bottled varieties do not contain as many of these antioxidants.

Green Tea Toner
This toner is super easy to make, and far cheaper than any toner you could pick up in the store. You’ll need one tea bag and a spray bottle. I bought my spray bottle for 99 cents at Home Depot.
- Brew green tea using one tea bag and two cups of water.
- Let cool, and then put in the spray bottle.
- Spray on face as needed.
Dermatologist Dr. Alicia Zalka says that a good toner helps cleanse the face and prepares it to absorb other products. However, toner is not for everyone; other dermatologists say that only acne-prone patients need to use it. Do what is right for your skin!
