Hot or cold....love it!
Here's an inexpensive way to use Green Tea for your body on the outside too. After steeping the tea bag in a cup of hot water for your tea, squeeze out the water and gently rub on your face as you would a cleansing cloth. Being careful not to break open the bag unless you want a bunch of green tea bits stuck to your face.
After you use it as a facial scrub open the tea bag and empty the green tea bits onto a plate, let dry in the sun and scoop into a glass jar. Use the dried green tea leaf bits in any soap or recipe for an all over body exfoliator.
Having to live frugally makes for creativity:)
P.S. I have read using tea bags on your skin can start to leave a sun kissed glow from the tea stain. That's a healthy alternative. Can't hurt to try, right?
