I’ve been reading up on natural skincare; it’s super affordable, easy to use, and doesn’t have any evil chemicals! I wanted to use things that are already at my house instead of having to travel for an hour to a store that sells essential oils, organic food, etc. So after researching for a while, my favorite picks were green tea, lemon, and grape seed oil (yes it is a “special item”, but I did find a huge bottle of it at my house, ha!).
Green Tea Toner
Every review I’ve read about green tea said that it has made a huge difference and they can’t get enough now! I drink at least three cups of tea a day (I’m drinking some right now!) so this toner won’t be a hassle at all; actually using tea topically might encourage you to drink it more often, why waste good tea, right?
Here is the benefits green tea:
- It decreases sunburn cells! A test on people showed that after being exposed to UVB rays sunburn cells went down 66%!
- Fights acne!
- Diminish under-eye circles!
After making a cup of tea place the cup and bag in the fridge to cool, then put into a bottle and use for about a week. Apply this with a cotton ball or just rub the bag on your skin and do not rinse off after.
Lemon juice is well known for erasing acne; it should only be used as a spot treatment because it dries out the skin and can be itchy. Simply apply it with a Qtip to bump, but don’t apply moisturizer after because it can cancel out the effect.
Grape seed Oil
According to a few websites, grape seed oil is one of the best moisturizers you can use; it can also be used to even out your skin tone! Apply this with a cotton ball onto skin, for dry skin uses during morning and night, for oily skin its best not to wear during the day.
I’m going to try this right now and will write a review later.
Go natural! ♥
