Green Tea is a natural beauty aide...Sip on !

"Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one" ~ ancient chines proverb

Tea, especially green tea is coffee's healthy, sweet and younger sister and I'm rolling with her these days!
ya hurd me ? LOL...I made a switch from coffee and cola to tea and water...and after the first few days of wanting to guzzle down 2 Liters of PEPSI,  can say I feel better and glad i made the healthier choice..It is not easy though , I have been trying to leave PEPSI alone for years, even while pregnant it was hard not to sip on that bubbly pop....
Any how , you are what you eat and I am not going to keep blaming all my breakouts on my menstrual cycle...Let's leave "Aunt Flow" out of this one...for now.
I know I am what i eat ...and drink ....and apply on my body ....and so I decided to take my tea to the next level of self care...yea.

I have heard so many things about green tea that I have started my own little experiment by drinking it daily and incorporating it into my daily face cleansing ritual. I love the fact that it boast of antiseptic and astringent qualities. It is claimed to tighten your pores and is gentle on your skin.
I first heard of the homemade toner on Divas Can Cook blog and tried it once and forgot about it ....
But I have been wearing more make-up lately and am balancing this with natural and affordable skin cleansing methods....FREE is affordable to me ! and Natural is LOVELY to me !!! so Green tea toner it is !

I basically made a cup of tea and left it unsweetened of course. Once cooled i filled a cotton ball with the warm liquid ( best used cold ) and rubbed on my clean face...I make sure all make-up traces are gone and I let this air dry...

So far I like this and while Witch Hazel is another great product on the market , this home made toner is tastier, cheaper and ALL NATURAL .... oh and it will last in your refrigerator for about a week...
Try it and tell me your tasty results....

Peace, LOVE and GREEN TEA !
