Write this down: To be an all-natural guru, all you need is green tea. When I started going natural, I quickly found out that green tea was one of the most powerful weapons in my chemical-free arsenal. It’s basically a cure-all. Like chocolate…or butter.
In just the past year or two, I’ve used green tea to fight acne, make sunscreen, and even wash my hair. So when I went trolling for a natural facial toner recipe and found a green tea option, you can bet I was on board 350 percent. And it’s so simple to concoct:
- Boil water to make the tea
- Allow tea to cool in refrigeration
- Apply to face
Incredibly simple! And simple is exactly what I’m looking for when it comes to facial toner, because I’m honestly not sure what it’s supposed to do. The internet claims that a good toner cleanses and seals pores so that your face doesn’t absorb dirt and toxins throughout the day. It sounds beneficial, and it’s an easy addition to my routine, so I see no harm in giving it a try.
I keep my tea in the refrigerator and apply it every night after showering, so that if it’s going to seal my pores, it’ll seal them while they’re clean. I don’t notice any visible differences since I’ve been using the toner, but it feels very refreshing on my skin, and I like it so far. Just one more point for green tea!
