Turn Tea Into Your New Favourite Beauty Product

Posted by Alexandra C. | Friday January 31, 201410 comments


I love a nice, big, hot cup of tea. Sunday afternoon, orange pekoe or perhaps a green tea, in my favourite big mug with a cookie on the side and a good book on the table = perfection. While it tastes great, it's also packed full of antioxidants which means it's great for you too. So, it only makes sense that beauty products would contain tea to help soothe skin and prevent signs of aging. 


1. Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Face Serum (C$100.00)

2. AmorePacific Green Tea Seed Treatment Oil (C$200.00)

3. Bath and Body Works White Tea and Ginger Shower Gel (US$11.00)

4. Fresh Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate (C$100.00) 

5. Hydrate Mi Beauty Tea (C$16.00) 

 
6. Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Honey Drops Body Cream (C$27.00)

7. The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Balm (C$16.00)

8. Lise Watier Teint Age Control Supreme with Laborador Tea Extract (C$48.00)
 
9. Boscia Green Tea Oil-Control Mask (C$41.00)

10. Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser (C$38.00)

11. Origins A Perfect World Spf 25 Agedefense Moisturizer With White Tea (C$51.00)

In addition to some great products containing teas, you can also use your tea bags at home for some DIY beauty treatments. Here are a few tea-lightful tips and tricks: 

1. Create a green tea toner to help clear oily, acne prone skin! We show you how over here. 

2. Tea Facial: Boil a large pot of water, add two tea bags and bend over bowl with a towel over your head for a makeshift steamer. Do this for about 5-10 minutes to open your pores. 

3.) An oldie but goodie, use tea bags to de-puff eyes. Be sure to let your tea bags cool slightly and let rest for about 15-20 minutes. 

4.) Add shine to dull hair with a tea rinse. Steep tea bags in boiling water for 15 minutes and allow mixture to cool for a few hours or overnight. Pour it onto freshly-washed hair and leave on for ten minutes. Be sure to shampoo and condition afterwards to seal in the shine.

Love the DIYs- I mean, it can't get much cheaper than a 10 cent tea bag, and it comes with tons of benefits!

is using the products better than consuming tea? or using both in combination a good one two punch?

White tea and ginger smells amazing. I've smelled it before and couldn't get enough of it! I've also tried the tea bags as an eye depuffer... it doesn't work as well as I thought it would. However in some of the eye creams or rollers I've used, caffeine is an ingredient and it does seem to work well so there is something said for using caffeine as a quick fix.

I've heard of a tea toner or tonic for hair or skin but I've never tried it myself. I hear it works well.
