Beauty Bites: Homemade Green Tea Toner!

I'm not really one for using a toner, but if I can make one at home this cheap and just use it when I feel like it, then maybe I can do it! Green Tea is known to be a great drink for your health, but personally I can't stand the stuff. I'd rather have an Earl Grey any day! But applied to my face I can deal with it and still get some of the benefits! If your interested in this really simple homemade toner recipe then keep reading! 

What will you need? 




Step 1 
Put your kettle on to boil and once it's done pour a small amount into your mug/glass. You won't need a lot, just enough to fill your bottle. Then you can leave it to stew for a good 10 minutes and go off and have a shower, paint your nails or something less exciting like chop some veg for dinner! 

Step 2 
Now your green tea should look the colour of something that it's best flushed down the toilet. But I assure you, you do want it to look like this!  Then carefully pour the warm liquid into your spray bottle and secure the lid nice and tightly. You'll probably want to label your bottle as it is something that needs to be kept in the fridge. And should last for 3-4 days. But being so cheap this isn't too much of an issue! 





What do the ingredients do for the skin? 
I've got it easy today haven't I, just one ingredient! Anyway Green Tea is great for you inside and out. But I'll just be talking about what it can do for you applied topically here! It can help cleanse your skin, so great to pack the last punch after using your favourite face wash. It's also claimed to reduce the appearance of pores, give you more of a glow and reduce inflammation such as that around blemishes! Good stuff right?! 





I hope you guys didn't think this was too simple for this weeks Beauty Bites, but it's such a great little product you can make at home to leave on your skin and make it look lovely! I just had to share! Anyway only a couple more weeks left of this series now, how have you liked it?

Thanks everyone for stopping by and I'll speak to you again soon, Hannah x

  5. If you put a little bit of glycerine in this as well it would be hydrating as glycerine is a humectant :)

  6. I'd never thought of using it like that, It sounds really refreshing, I'm going to have a go!

    I only really ever drink loose leaf tea from a tea shop online, as it's much purer and better quality rather than the supermarket tea bags (you can buy special loose leaf tea sacks to put the tea leaves into). I'll let you know how it goes!
