Beauty at home: DIY treats for the skin

 

Feeling cold and need a skin "pick me up"?

If going to a salon isn't ideal then we have the best tips for you to recreate beauty treats at home in less than 5 minutes starting with Green Tea.

 

If you don't drink green tea, then you are totally missing out: it's loaded with powerful antioxidants and nutrients, it's good for detoxing body and flushing your toxins out, it improves brain function and lower the risks of different type of cancer, it can boost your metabolism and make you burn fat much faster... and much more. It's probably the healthiest drink out there.. just saying. But you can also use it for your skin.

Green tea contains skin friendly antioxidants so it's perfectly safe to use on your skin.

 

1* Every time, you have a cup of green tea, don't discard the tea bag but instead put it in your freezer for next morning.

You now have an easy, ready to use under eye patch that will reduce puffiness, dark circles and wake you up too. I use this trick all the time and although it shouldn't replace your eye care treatment, it's a great way to start your day when you are running out of time and need to reduce your under eye bags.

 

2* Brew a large pot of green tea and save a bit on the side to cool down. Dip few cotton disks and place them on your face and leave on for 5-10 minutes for a quick refreshing face mask. You can also add few drops of tea tree oil because it has amazing healing properties for the skin.

DIY sheet masks

 

This might not replace the real deal but it's also a quick, easy and CHEAP way to enjoy a sheet mask and nourish your skin at the same time. 

 

For that, you will need cotton disks or a gauze or sterilized compress pad.

 

1* Choose your favorite moisturizer and put a bit in bowl and add a bit of distilled water. Let your pads soak in the mixture and place on your skin for 5-10 mins.

 

2* Let your pads soak in your favorite serum/essence mixture and place on your skin 5-10 mins. We never really take the time for the skin to completely absorb all the goodness your serum has and this is a great way to do it.
