It's Tea Time

At day's end, I relax with a hot cup of tea. Why? Cause it's good for me inside and out.

Tea is a natural antioxidant -- the enemy of free radicals that causes skin to age prematurely (bonus). Plus it contains tannic acid which cleans the skin and kills odor causing bacteria.


My choice of drink at night is green tea. But the herbal tonic can be used in a number of ways.


Try green tea as:

* Toner: contains Vitamin C and E to soothe irritated skin and relieve redness.

* Depuffer: cooled tea bags reduces eye puffiness.

*Skin Refresher: use to rejuvenate skin and hydrate the face (great after air travel).

*Breath Freshener: wards off bad breath .

*Face Mask: removes toxins from skin and moisturizes when combined with oats and honey (gentle enough for all skin types).

*Sunburn Relief: Soothes and heals sunburned skin.
