Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, clean your face with a soap-free cleansing wash. Make two mugs of green tea* and put an ice cube or two in one of them.
  3. Smear a thin layer of the chilled mask on your face, avoiding your eyes. Sit back, relax for 10 or 15 minutes, and sip the warm tea.
  4. Rinse with lukewarm water. Slowly splash your face with the cooled tea, then rinse with water again. Powerful antioxidants in tea help skin stay healthy.

* Note: Don’t use black tea; it will stain your skin.
