Green tea has been consumed for thousands of years for its various health benefits, but did you know that green tea has topical benefits as well?
Applying green tea to the skin can really improve your complexion by lessening excess oil production, balancing the skin’s PH, and calming redness.
So I thought to myself, why not make a toner out of it with a few more added benefits? And so here it is! Click the video below to find out more about the topical benefits of green tea!
Green Tea For Beauty and Green Tea Toner
This green tea toner is light and refreshing and really quick and easy to throw together. I recommend keeping it in the fridge, especially during the summer to keep it fresh for up to a week. This toner will stay germ-free for only a few days since it has zero preservatives. the good news is, it’s so easy to make that this shouldn’t be too much trouble. I often save a bit of my morning green tea to make a fresh batch as needed.
Green Tea Toner Recipe- What You’ll Need
• 1 small glass spray bottle (you can find them here)
• 1 small funnel
• measuring spoons
• 1 or more essential oils of your choice (lavender, tea tree, rosemary…etc! I used this one)
• 1 TBS raw apple cider vinegar
• 1 bag of green tea

This will last for 2 weeks! I like to keep mine in the fridge to bump up the de-puffing qualities a bit more.
Use this green tea toner morning and night for best results. I think you’ll like this natural acne treatment =)
NOTE: I recommend being a bit careful with this toner if you have open blemishes because it might sting a bit. Omitting the apple cider vinegar and essential oils will be a much better option. The pure green tea will still work wonders for your skin. I recommend keeping it in the fridge since it has no essential oils in it to keep it fresh.
