How to look younger with Green Tea?

April 4, 2012

Green Tea CupGreen tea can’t make you grow younger, but it contains so much antioxidants that it has a youth-ing effects. I  am drinking green tea for many-many years and love it.  When I was introduced to the green tea at the first time (after being the Black Tea/Coffee girl) I did not understand that new look and flavor. But knowing all health benefits of the green tea I slowly adapted new qualities and made it  my everyday’s drink.

Recently I  looked online for some homemade masks ideas and found out that green tea is amazing for the skin, and you can make your own green tea mask at home. A green tea mask contains many powerful antioxidants- it will hydrate your skin, slows down the aging process and helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

I will post some recipes for green tea homemade facial mask in next post, when I tried it myself.

Now I can share my old- favorite one- which I use sometimes at home. Usually I am using the Magic Bullet to prepare my facial masks but you can just mash all ingredients in small cup as well.

Aloe Vera facial mask:

– one aloe vera leaf- cut from the side and take the inside gel – about two tablespoons.

– one tablespoon distilled/ filtered water. (I think I might replace it now with green tea)

– one capsule of vitamin E (cut the capsule and squeeze the oil)

– optional: one teaspoon of plain yogurt.

– one teaspoon of the starch ( keeps mask together)

After blending all ingredients  apply mask on clean face with the facial brush and leave it for 10-15 min, then rinse with warm water and apply the moisturizer.

And … here we are … fresh and happy  🙂
