Tea is so good for us to drink regularly, and tea also has amazing healing powers when applied on the skin. For example, mint tea is cleansing as a tea (with fresh mint leaves), a toner, and facial steam. It is especially delectable when combined with compliments like orange and lime:
- Deep Steep Organic Moisture Stick (also featured here by Emma): Honeydew and Spearmint form a nice blend of sweet melon, and spearmint green tea, “& orange with a hint of lime. The perfect summertime scent for all year round. Gives lips loads of shine!” Offered at FutureNatural.com
- Over the summer we learned that green tea is a powerful antioxidant toner for the skin. Try making a toner by steeping jasmine green tea, letting it cool and transferring it into a spritz bottle that you keep in the fridge. This is a great treat after yoga class.
- Remember Yogi Tea? Well, not only do they have little “thought bites” attached to each teabag string, but they also include little yoga stretches for you to take a break with once in a while.
- Chamomile will not only relax the mind, it will heal the skin. Try this light facial mask before sleep.
