Quick and easy green tea and honey cleansing mask

If there’s one thing I just love about face masks, it’s making my own at home! In this post, I’m going to explain how you can make a quick and easy cleansing mask using green tea and honey.

 

This mask is one that you can use all over your face or as a spot treatment. The best part is that it’s super-effective at clearing redness, getting rid of and preventing blackheads and brightening your complexion!

But first – how can green tea and honey help cleanse your skin?

It’s simple: Green tea and honey are both packed full of antioxidants. Together, they work very well to do the following:

  • Calm red or irritated skin
  • Deep-clean pores
  • Get rid of blackheads
  • Even out skin tone

Sounds great, right? It is! I typically use this mask as a spot treatment around my nose and chin, or anywhere else I feel a blemish coming on. It also works really well as an all-over mask, though. It’s especially great for brightening up dull or tired skin!

And now: How to mix up and apply your very own green tea and honey mask

You’ll need:

  • 1 green tea bag
  • Raw honey

How to mix up the mask:

  1. Moisten the tea bag under the tap.
  2. Cut open the tea bag and empty the moistened leaves in a small box.
  3. Mix the leaves with honey to form a paste. Note: You don’t want the paste to be too runny, so don’t use too much honey.

How to apply the mask:

  1. Apply the paste to the problem area or your entire face using your fingertips.
  2. Leave the past on for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Bonus: This all-natural mask smells divine!
