A scrub works in a few ways: As you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin's surface. By using the green tea as an exfoliant this helps your skin as it is packed full of goodness and antioxidant’s that help calm, reduce redness, reveal radiance and makes your skin feel fabulous all year around, making it the perfect scrub for this time of the year to help you with your summer glow.
I thought that this would be a really good way to kick-start this month by sharing with you this wonderful DIY scrub that is not only super easy to make but smells and feels incredible too.
What You’ll Need:
1 heaped teaspoon of Jasmine tea crushed ( you could use Sencha Green or Green Tea Meadow).
1/2 cup brewed Jasmine green tea
1 cup of granulated sugar
To get things started, brew teaspoon of Jasmine green tea in half a cup of water and leave to cool
In a good sized bowl mix the sugar & roughly 2 tablespoons of olive oil until combined, then add in the dry teaspoon of Jasmine green tea and mix together. (The loose tea will add a rougher texture to the scrub, great for buffing away the dead skin cells and making your skin glow)
Add the cool brewed tea to the loose tea, sugar and olive oil mixture. Mix well and then decant the scrub into a pot or jar of your choice.
This would also make a lovely homemade Christmas gift.
