Mini Facial

3.28.12

Freshening Your Face
Dried, uninfused teas are also a wonderful beauty and hygiene source. Creative soap makers have for years incorporated tea leaves in their bars of soaps because they can help slough off dried skin, deodorize, and leave you smelling yummy with skin that’s as soft as a baby’s.

Crushing tea leaves in a heavy face cream is a mild but effective way to give you a mini facial. By making circling motions with the cream you can polish your skin and make it appear younger and fresher. Simply rinse off thoroughly with tepid water and pat dry very lightly or allow the water to evaporate naturally.

You can also use this method on your feet with or without a pumice stone to slough off calluses or other rough spots.Use a very thick cream for a “rougher” more effective product.
