Green tea Hydration facial spray recipe

Salam wa leykum every one, hope you are doing great, so today I open my blog and found the new blog style which is a bit weird I have to confess but wishing insh'alla to get use to it soon.

If you read with regularity this blog you know that I'm a huge fan of green tea, I just think god put a lot of good and beneficial things on it that we can use it in so many ways and get the best of it to improve our body and health.Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). Green tea and green tea extracts have been used to protect the skin from sun damage, and even prevent and treat skin cancer, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAAM) adds. Green tea has also been showing up as a key ingredient in skin care products. The polyphenols contained in green tea may have anti-aging effects on the skin, Smart Skin Care notes.

 Hydration facial spray

it helps your skin feel hydrated, fresh and clean throughout the day. This spray moisturize dry skin during the cold winter months, yet also keep your skin feeling cool and refreshed during the hot summer. Homemade hydration sprays often contain natural ingredients such as honey, avocado, green tea, strawberries or infused oils. These types of ingredients are rich in antioxidants and minerals that fight wrinkles, keep the skin moist and improve blood circulation in the skin


Green Tea Spray

1
Boil 2 cups of mineral water. Add two green tea bags and let them steep for three minutes. Mix in 1 teaspoon of honey.
2
Place a piece of cheesecloth in the bottom of a funnel. Strain the mixture through the cheesecloth into a container.
3
Place the container in the refrigerator and let it sit overnight. The spray will stay fresh for two weeks.


But the benefits are endless here a list of some of them:
Sun Damage

Green tea may protect the skin from premature aging caused by the sun's ultraviolet B rays, according to the Mayo Clinic --- a conclusion supported by a study published in December 2001 in the "Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology."



Wrinkles

Green tea extracts can be found in some wrinkle creams, according to the Mayo Clinic, noting that they appear to show promise as a wrinkle-fighting agent. A Korean study published in 2005 in the "American Journal of Chinese Medicine" concluded that the polyphenols contained in green tea appear to have anti-wrinkle effects, and may benefit skin when consumed orally or when used in topical skin care products.

Moisturizer

Green tea is sometimes added to moisturizers due to its antioxidant effects, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Moisturizers help retain water in the outer layer of the skin. They can prevent and soften dry skin and temporarily plump fine lines.

Puffy Eyes

Green tea bags may help reduce puffy eyes. The astringent-like substance called tannins contained in green tea may constrict blood vessels and have a tightening effect on the skin, Granny Med notes. The Mother Nature website recommends you reduce puffy eyes by placing a moistened green tea bag over each eye from about 15 minutes.

Toning

Green tea may be used a toner to help clarify the skin, minimize pores, and remove excess dirt and makeup. To use in this way, Smart Skin Care instructs you to pour freshly brewed green tea into an ice-cube tray and freeze. When the cubes begin to thaw, the website advises, apply the tea to your face with a cotton ball.
