This simple homemade facemask is incredibly cleansing and nourishing for the skin. Grapeseed oil is light, easily absorbed, full of antioxidants, and has an anti-inflammatory action. Tea tree oil is antiviral and antibacterial, green tea is antioxidant rich, and natural yoghurt is full of nutrients including zinc; the combination of these ingredients makes this mask especially suited to acne prone skin.
one teaspoon loose leaf green tea (or one teabag)
two drops tea tree oil
one teaspoon grapeseed oil
one teaspoon natural yoghurt (organic biodynamic if possible)
Make a cup of green tea and drink if you like. Squeeze excess liquid out of the leaves and grind down in a mortar and pestle.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Apply to the face after a quick rinse with hot water and leave for as long as is comfortable (minimum ten minutes to reap the benefits).
Rinse off gently with warm water and a face cloth, then finish with a cold water face rinse to close the pores.
This all natural, homemade green tea face mask will leave your skin feeling clean, refreshed, and well nourished.
