Green Tea For Your Skin
Green tea is packed with antioxidants, the kind that prevent fine lines and wrinkles, reduce inflammation drastically, and also repair damaged skin and scar tissue.
DIY Fix: Take 3oz green tea leaves and stir them in half a liter of water. Let this rest for 30-40 minutes, strain and store in the fridge. You can use the mix through the day as a face mist, and dab some on acne breakouts and around the under eye area with a cotton ball to invigorate the skin and improve your complexion.
Green Tea For Your Hair
It stops the production of the hormone, DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) and stimulates hair growth. This herbal tea is also a good source of polyphenols, and vitamins E and C, which are known to give you a lustrous, shiny mane. Additionally, the antiseptic properties in the solution will prevent and treat dandruff.
DIY Fix: Bring to boil half a liter of water, steep 3-4 green tea bags and let it cool. After you have shampooed and conditioned your hair, rinse your strands with this liquid, making sure to work it on your scalp too.
