From the various studies and research done by the east as well as the west, we  know that drinking Green Tea is beneficial to our bodies.  Besides drinking it, have you ever thought of using the Green Tea leaves or powder as a beauty remedy?  

To find out more, read on......

Here are 7 tips on how to get extra mileage after drinking a cup or two of Green Tea.

As a toothpaste

After steeping the Green Tea with hot water, put aside a little of the tea before sitting down to enjoy the rest of it.  Mix the liquid with baking soda instead of water into a paste   You have just created a homemade toothpaste that has a little breath freshening flavor!  

As a mouthwash

Use the Green Tea liquid as a mouthwash as it has anti-bacterial properties instead of the regular mouthwash which may contain alcohol.

As a cooling compress

If you have sensitive or irritated skin, take a used Green Tea bag which has cooled and make a compress to help reduce the redness. It can also be used on cuts, scrapes, burns and puffy eyes, too.

As a flavoring

Green Tea powder can be purchased from health food stores  or online. Add to your favorite smoothie, or homemade green tea ice cream.

As a homemade face mask

  • Green Tea powder can be used as a mask and it acts as amoiturizing mask for dry skin. Just mash up half a banana, add one tbsp of honey, one tbsp plain yogurt and one tsp green tea powder.

As a treatment for acne

Medical studies found that Green Tea is equally effective in treating acne as benzoyl peroxide but without causing dryness, itchiness or irritation of the skin which can result from using benzoyl peroxide.

By applying a Green Tea cream directly to the infected area can actually reduce inflammation and provide a variety of benefits as an antioxidant.  To make the treatment even more effective, drink one to two cups of Green Tea daily or take a Green Tea supplement. You can find Green Tea, supplements and creams online, health food store or your local grocery.

As a Toner

Green Tea can also aid in slowing down the signs of aging. It is believed to be effective in protecting the skin from the sun. You can make the toner simply by:

1. Brewing the Green Tea and freeze it into ice cubes.  
2. Once it is frozen, remove and wrap a towel over it
3. Rub the cube gently in circular motion on your face until it melts away.  Do not rinse.  
4. Pat dry.
5. Apply some moisturizer and your usual sunblock.
