Green, black, white, Lipton and Earl Grey…teas are a part of a natural health routine for some of us. With the number of health benefits tea has, it’s no wonder we found natural uses for it!
Tea contains anticancer properties and helps promote weight loss, but did you know about the different benefits it has for your hair and skin?
Let’s start with the hair. To make it shinier and easier to manage, rinse your hair with a cup of tea. This is suggested for dark hair since teas can temporarily and subtly dye hair. For those looking for natural highlights, rinse your hair with a cup of tea various times a week for a fun change!Brew a cup of tea, green tea preferably, and sip while you read. You may want to try some of these after you’re done with your tea time!
How about making your own body brew? Natural beauty tip number 2! Tea helps soothe razor burns and sunburns. For small areas, you can use the tea bags. Allow the tea bags to cool after steeping and then apply the tea bag over the affected area.
If the sun loved you too much on that beach day, then a tea-bath is in order. Fill your tub with the water need in the hottest water temperature, let the tea bags soak and allow it to cool. Submerge your body in the tea bath and soak!
These antioxidant filled gems can also aid in shrinking warts. After brewing, place a warm tea bag for about 10 minutes on the wart(s). Drink the tea you brewed while you wait! Do it a few times per day every day and you will start seeing results after a few days. You’re welcome!
In conjunction with our “Master of Disguise” post, let’s address eye puffiness. Though beauty sleep can help this in the long run, sometimes it’s not in the cards for us. Tea bags can do the job of cold spoons if you have 20 minutes to spare. Soak the tea bags in warm water. Place them on each eye for 20-30 minutes and rinse off any tea stains.
Tea also has an astringency that can help make your face less greasy. This means it’s a perfect facial toner. Quickly wipe a tea bag over your trouble zones and then blot with a clean towel. It shouldn’t leave any tea stain residue on your face.
