DIY Skincare: Left-over Tea Scrubs

20150704_135529I’m a fearless MacGyver when it comes to concocting meals and potions, including skincare and makeup. Having a non-sensitive skin is a plus for these kinds of experiments. One of my favorite thing to do is to use left-over tea mix as face scrub. I was recently gifted a delicious box of teabags from Germany. It is a delicious winter-warm blend of berries, cinnamon and oranges, and upon inspection, the left-over mix looks nice as a face scrub – large particles still somewhat fragrant. So I’ve been collecting them in a small pot, stored in the refrigerator for use whenever needed.

It’s a bit messy, so I use them in the bathroom mixed with a bit of cleansing gel, where any fall out can readily be swept away with water. Alternatively, mix with some honey and apply after cleansing, leaving the mixture on face for a few minutes while you brush your teeth or attend to other matters.
