Okay, you can't exactly call this magick, but i have a little DIY face scrub for anyone to try out inspired from my beauty idol: Bubz. :) (no copywrite intended)
This will leave your face feeling soft and fresh.
You will need
- 1 green tea bag
- 2 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of rice flour (opional)
What you do;
Get the green tea bag and dunk in hot water (or make tea). Leave the tea bag to cool down for a bit. Once the bag is cool, tear it open and empty the wet tea leaves into a mixing bowl.
Add your honey and rice flour, or just honey. Rice flour works as a mild whitening agent for red skin. Mix altogether, then apply to face and scrub!
I leave this on as a mask for about 30 minutes.
Rinse off with warm water and your skin will be left feeling soft and fresh. :)
You know , using a teabag? I am not sure how good that is as I am pretty sure that it contains quite a bunch of preservatives. Also , I hope you are using 100% pure honey instead of some Honey Mixture with Preservatives. If cheap materials are used , I am not sure how good that is for your skin.
Don't get irritated at me for suggesting it but do you think that it only works because it is staying on your skin for half an hour? I mean , if my face was kept warm with water for half an hour , it would be probrably darn soft.
Also , I just got this image in my head. I just imagine myself going onto a convenience store , buy a soft drink of "Green Tea with Honey" and just pouring it on the face. I mean , pretty much same effect right? And why stop at half an hour? Why not do it the whole day.
Another image I had was taking a bath with green tea. Run the bath , place 10-20 bags of green tea onto the bathtub , and soak there for an hour or so. It was pretty much inspired by Cleopatra's Milk Baths.
No offense was intended. Just some of my thoughts and wanderings of my mind that was inspired by your post..
That's nice. I checked the Tea Bag thing and it does not contain Preservatives. Well , the brand I use anyway and if it does, it did not right it down. Though , I am pretty sure a fair number of green tea bags contains some Matcha Powder.
