1 Green Tea Can Help You Repair Sun Damage

I would never tell anyone not to soak up some sun and enjoy a warm summer day. However, if you go without sunscreen, you may be in for a lifetime of aging and maybe even skin cancer. From now on you need to be wearing SPF when you’re outside, but you can also reverse damage that’s already been done by misting your face with green tea. Simply mist it on and soak up the benefits.

2 Use a Homemade Green Tea Eye Patch

Green tea can be incredibly soothing to your skin and can help with puffiness under your eyes. While you may be able to buy green tea eye patches at the drugstore, it’s also pretty easy to make them yourself if you want to save some money. Use this DIY tutorial to make your own green tea eye patches and watch how awesome they can be for the skin around your eyes.

3 Moisturize Dry Skin with a Green Tea Body Scrub

A body scrub is ideal for removing dry, scaly skin and leaving you with soft, supple skin in its place. Turns out green tea can do double duty by sloughing off the dead skin cells and moisturizing your skin at the same time. A body scrub that combines green tea and matcha green tea powder is your best bet. You’re going to love what it can do for your entire body.

4 Make a Really Effective Face Mask

Don’t you just love how awesome your face looks and feels after applying a face mask? A green tea face mask infuses your skin with important nutrients while it softens and moisturizes at the same time. A homemade face mask made with honey, green tea and turmeric can really do wonders for your skin. Get the recipe here: Use a cotton ball to apply the face mask to your skin.

5 Combine Green Tea with Chia Seeds and Spread It All over Your Face

You know how chia plumps up and gets sort of gooey when you soak it in liquid? That makes is a prime tool for creating a face mask. Simply combine chia seeds with brewed green tea. Allow it form a creamy consistency and then spread it all over face. Allow the mixture to work its magic for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water.

6 Turn Your Bath into a Green Tea Treatment

Adding green tea to your bath has mega benefits for your entire body. It will moisturize and give you smooth, fresh skin when you get out. Pour a good amount of green tea into your bath and take a nice relaxing soak. Make sure the water isn’t too hot or you will suck all the moisture out of your skin.

7 Rinse Your Hair with Green Tea

Here’s another fabulous use for green tea. Experts say that rinsing your hair with green tea helps reduce dandruff and can prevent hair loss. It’s really easy to splash green tea on your strands, let them soak in and then rinse it off. You can do that, can’t you?

8 Make Your Pores Look Way Smaller

Most girls don't like visible pores and when they get stretched out like that, it increases the risk that they'll get clogged and you'll wind up with a breakout. Turns out that green tea can solve your pore problems with ease. Brew and cool a mug of strong green tea, then mix it with a few tablespoons of facial clay to create a paste. Spread it on your skin and let it dry, then rinse and you're good to go.

9 Exfoliate Your Entire Body

Regular exfoliation is something that all the best skincare experts recommend a couple of times each week. Using dried green tea can help you get rid of dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth, fresh skin in no time at all. Combine the dried green tea with sugar, olive oil and honey to create a thick consistency. Gently massage the mixture all over your body in circular motions. Rinse and moisturize to finish things off.

10 Get Rid of Puffy Dark Circles under Your Eyes

No girl wants to wake up to dark circles and puffiness under her eyes. Once again, green tea can save the day. Antioxidants in the tea combats the puffiness and shrinks the blood vessels under your eyes, helping reduce the appearance of dark circles. All you have to do is place two used green tea bags in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Then place them over your closed eyes and kick back for about 15 minutes. Easy, right?
