3 Green Tea Bags

1 Cup of Clean Water

2 Tablespoons Granulated Cane Sugar

½ Tablespoon Lemon Juice


Boil water and seep the green tea bags in the water for an hour. Refrigerate the green tea for an additional hour after removing the tea bags. After it’s chilled, mix in the sugar and lemon juice and apply to your clean face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Gently dry your skin with a soft hand towel and follow with an oil-free moisturizer.


Green Tea is known to help with problematic skin, especially skin that is battling acne. It is also known to soothe and calm irritated skin so it’s a winning combination. It can also fight aging by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. Add a little bit of the seeped green tea into your daily moisturizer for adding wrinkle-fighting protection.

Cane sugar works as a beautiful exfoliator for the skin. It will not tear at your skin like many harsh beads that are added to skincare care products. Sugar almost feels like it’s “melting” into your skin it’s so gentle. It will not clog your pores or make you break out. It will just remove dead skin cells to allow new, fresh skin to surface. You will be so happy with your glowing complexion.

Lemon juice will help restore your skin’s tone while helping your skin appear more radiant and reducing oils that surface on the skin.

    Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I tried this mask last night. When I woke up today, my skin looked so flawless! I can’t believe it! I have very oily skin (and I’m 21!), so it’s a constant battle. This mask is really useful. I absolutely recommend it!
    I’d like to know: how many times at the week should I use it?
    Thanks for your advice! Your page is amazing!

    I’d add some Greek yoghurt or perhaps some manuka honey which is brilliant for skin.
