DIY Green Tea Face Scrub For Sensitive skin

Hello Lovelies,

Today I bring you yet another DIY for a gentle, all-natural face scrub, ideal for people with sensitive, easily irritated skin, this mask is great to brighten and hydrate the skin, buff away dead skin cells and unclog pores.
It is great for summer as it can reduce breakouts and soothe sunburns.
It is easy and quick to do, very very low cost and for me personally works wonderfully, leaving an incredibly smooth, soft and hydrated skin in the end, reducing any redness and puffiness it might have and reducing dark circles, fighting acne and breakouts, preventing aging and soothing the skin.
Always do a patch test before using a face mask, homemade or store-bought.

You're gonna need:
  • 2 Green tea bags
  • 2 1/2 Dessert spoons of honey
  • 1 Tea spoon of sugar
  • 2 Tea spoons of greek yogurt
  • Optional - Coconut oil
Benefits of each ingredient:

Green Tea: Green tea contains anti-bacterial agents that suppress acne and breakouts and anti inflammatory properties that reduces puffiness and redness, helps heal any pimples you might have, and helps reduce scar marks and blemishes, it also has a high level of antioxidants that have strong anti-aging properties, it can also help reduce dark circles.
Honey: Honey also has anti-bacterial properties that will suppress acne, it soak ups impurities from the pores, leaving the skin clearer, it is also highly moisturising and acts as a great anti-aging agent.
Sugar: Softens, exfoliates and freshens the skin, unclogging pores and removing any dullness from skin.
Greek Yogurt: Dissolves dead skin cells, reduces discoloration, relieves sunburns and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and calms the skin.

First of all boil the teabags normally, you're not gonna use the tea itself, but the leaves in the tea bag, so wait for the tea to cool down a bit, pick the bags, squeeze a bit to remove the excess water, cut the top of the teabags and drop the leaves in some bowl or container (you can drink the tea, by the ways, you won't need it for the mask and drinking it is really good for you).
Mix the rest of the ingredients with the leaves, if your skin is a bit too dry maybe replace one of the spoons of honey for coconut oil for extra hydration.

Apply the mask on your face while gently scrubbing with circular motions up and outwards, it's gonna feel weird and sticky, I know, but trust me the results are really worth it, leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes and rinse it off with warm water, repeating the circular movements. Wash your face with a gentle face wash and warm water to remove all the stickyness and pat your skin dry with a soft towel. To finish it off use a highly hydrating moisturiser, as you've just scrubbed the skin it will absorb it more.
It can also be used on your body, not only the face, I specially like to use it on my hands.
And that's it!

So as you guys can see it is really quick and simple, but for me it leaves my skin feeling wonderfully soft, smooth, clean and glowing. Lately I've been using it at least every 3 weeks, sometimes more often.

Thanks for reading!
