Tea & Beauty
Apart from being a healthy drink, tea is an
excellent beauty aid too that is easily available in all homes.
Brew 1/2 cup of unscented black or green tea
leaves in approximately a litre of boiling bottled water for at
least 10 minutes. Strain and set aside. Cool the filtrate and
refrigerate. Use this solution to soothe sunburns.
For minor cuts and scrapes, apply the cold tea
brew with a pure cotton pad onto the cuts or abrasions. Leave the
cotton pad on the affected area for at least 5 minutes. Do not wash
off. Apply this 4 times and day and see the difference.
Apply a piece of cotton cloth that's been soaked
in the cold tea brew to the sunburned area. Leave on until the
affected areas cool off. Repeat this 3-4 times a day.
To remove puffiness from eyes, soak cotton pads
in the cold tea brew and keep the pads on your lids for about 10
minutes. Refrigerated used tea bags are another alternative.
In case you have had a rough day, soak your feet
in the cold tea brew for about 15 minutes. This is a great way to
treat your feet after a long day of standing, walking, or running.
For an aromatic soak, you can use flavoured tea brews.
