Steeping Beauty: Toning with a touch of tea!

Time for another beauty moment! On previous posts, I've shown you how to create a mask using Matcha, a scrub using Sencha, and a hair spritz using Assam. Now, it's time to create a basic toner using a green tea.

This one is as simple as making yourself a cup of tea. Just boil up some water, allow to cool for a few minutes, and then pour over on the green tea leaves of your choice. That's it! I used 2 tablespoons of Sencha for 1 cup of water and infused for 8 minutes. You may use a second infusion of your loose leaf tea leaves instead and just drink the first infusion. Remember, loose leaf tea leaves go a long way. If you don't want to use loose leaf, tea bags work just as well. Once steeped, remove the leaves using a sieve, and then pour the liquor into an air-tight jar or a spray bottle. 

Tea toner!

I keep my tea toner supply in the fridge for 5 – 7 days. I use it twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed time, applying it over my face and neck with a cotton ball after cleansing. It feels cool and refreshing! If you have it in a spray bottle, just apply a light spritz over your face and neck. Not need to rinse in either case.

This beauty recipe is pretty simple. As you learn about the wonders of other items and products such as honey, baking soda, salt, and olive oil, you can look into adding them in as an ingredient to any of your recipes. Everything is natural, have their own benefits, and provide amazing results!
