Health Benefits of Black Tea

Black tea is a popular ingredient in face masks, beauty products, and even a popular every-day substitute for coffee. This healthy ingredient contains tons of anti-oxidants that help improve your skin and immune system. One of the more highly caffienated teas, it can also help perk your skin up without the harsh effects of coffee or other chemicals. Many beauty bloggers reccomend drinking a cup or two a day! Just be aware, if you're sensitive to caffiene, don't brew it for too long!

I just only starting exfoliating. I never knew the difference a good exfoliation could make. I try to apply a scrub at least weekly. I like this black tea scrub and will add it to the mix.

I do not have issues with acne but a good natural exfoliant would not hurt. I like all the ingredients used in this recipe and it just so happens I have them all currently. Guess who will be getting a facial today?

This DIY cleanser just happens to be the same way i like taking my tea, with honey and lemon. I have used lemons in many masks and scrubs and the result is clearer skin over time. the lemon really clears up those blemishes and dark spots. If you haven't tried it before then here is your first mask.
