Beauty in your fridge

Here are the last recipes from your kitchen and today's are good for all skin types.

  • Green Tea
The antioxidants in green tea help fight free radical damage. Green tea can be applied directly to the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Some research has linked green tea treatments to the prevention of skin cancer and signs of aging resulting from sun exposure.

For a powerful, antioxidant punch brew one to two tea bags for each cup of water, let it cool then apply to your face after cleansing.

  • Salt and Sugar
Maybe not the best for your insides, but applied as a scrub, these two are great natural exfoliates. They help loosen lifeless skin cells that need to be physically removed. The glycolic acid in sugar, paired with its rough texture makes it ideal for exfoliation treatments.

Mix a teaspoon of sugar or salt with any cleanser and apply in small, circular motions. Rinse with warm water.
