Steeping Beauty: A simple scrub with Sencha!

On a past post, I wrote about how you could use Matcha to make a face mask. Now, I’m going to show you how to make a gentle scrub using tea to exfoliate your skin. It’s so simple!

I’m going to use Sencha but feel free to use another type of tea if you wish. All tea is good tea! Using a mortar and pestle, I grinded 1 teaspoon of tea into a fine powder leaving some larger particles. 

A fine mess!

Then, I just mixed it with a cleanser and a sprinkle of sugar. You could use a moisturizer or lotion, but I feel something soapy works best. I also wanted to use a cleansing product that was free of a gazillion ingredients and scents. I chose Simple, because it’s, well, simple.

Cleaning combo!

After mixing the tea, sugar, and cleanser together, add a few drops of water and work the combo into a lather. Then just massage onto your face in gentle circular motions. 

My massage moment!

Rinse your face with lukewarm water and pat dry. Your skin will feel clean and alive. So simple!
