Barbara's notes for this recipe:
For those that tried the Green Tea but do not care for the taste... don't throw the rest of the bags away, and try this! If you love Green Tea, grab a cup for yourself and some for your skin.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Boil the water and steep tea bags for at least 10 minutes to make concentrated tea. Wait for the tea to cool, then pour it into a small spritzer bottle and refrigerate. Spray toner directly on clean, just-washed skin and pat it in (or apply it with a clean cotton ball). Follow with moisturizer. (Optional- To soothe acne on normal to oily skin types, add 1/2 cup of witch hazel and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice.)
Best for: all skin types
Benefits: decreases puffiness, tightens pores
