Who doesn’t want great skin?
What if we told you that green tea moisturizer will help moisturize and enhance the health and appearance of your skin?
It doesn’t have to cost a lot, either, if you make it yourself.
You can also take an organic approach instead of making a DIY moisturizer with green tea.
There are a lot of items available on the market, but we’re not going to look at them, we’re going to look at how you can make your own, instead.
- 1 tablespoon of beeswax.
- 2 tablespoons of sweet almond oil
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp Rose Hip Seed Oil
- 1 packet organic green tea
- Sterilized container to store lotion in
- Clean and sterilize all your tools. This lotion has a longer shelf life because it’s oil only, but we don’t want to establish a breeding ground for bacteria.
- Combine wax and oils in a double boiler or a chocolate blender.
- Enable it all to melt together.
- Open the tea bag and apply the loose tea to the oils.
- Enable the mixture to warm and remove from the tea for 15 minutes.
- Strain the oil mixture into a deep cup through a fine-mesh sieve.
- Whip the mixture with your hand blender, scraping down the sides occasionally, until the lotion is room temperature and smooth.
- Keep the green tea face cream lotion in a cool dark spot.
(Please keep in mind that the lotions have a good shelf cycle.
Don’t use something that looks or smells wrong.
That said, oil-only lotions have a very long shelf life.)
If you’ve never made your skincare products before, don’t be intimidated, it’s very easy!
You can make substitutions, you can vary the number of oils for stronger or weaker products, you can change the smell.
Rosehip seed oil is one favorite carrier oil on the face.
It has a reddish-amber tint and is heavier than an almond or avocado oil.
It’s ideal for this cream recipe as it soaks easily in the skin without leaving any oily residue or oily feeling, so it can be added day or night.
It’s great for all skin types, especially aging or mature skin.
It is rich in essential fatty acids and can help with wrinkles, dryness, and fine lines.
Opt only for cold-pressed, organic oil.
Rosehip Seed Oil contains Vitamin A that is useful in the evening out skin tone and encourages cell regeneration for a more radiant, lighter look.
Apart from that it also contains essential fatty acids, which help to reduce the appearance of scars and keep skin soft and supple
100% pure Sweet almond oil is loaded with vitamin E and fatty acids which maintain your skin cells healthy, keep your skin safe from UV damage and keep your skin clear and bright.
The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties of green tea can make it an effective treatment for acne and oily skin.
Research shows that polyphenols in green tea when applied to the skin, help minimize sebum secretion, which can contribute to acne.
Coconut oil is widely praised for being a fantastic, hydrating moisturizer, due to its fatty acid content, it is ideally better to use oils as a seal in the final phase of your skincare routine to lock in all the moisturizers of the products used before it (like serums and moisturizers) rather than as hydration themselves.
