Herbal Tea Toners Renew the Skin


Who doesn't want dewy and glowing skin?  You could spend big bucks on products that have chemicals and often don't work, or you can simply brew some herbal tea to make a toner that refreshes and renews your skin, nourishing it with all the natural plant bioactive compounds which contribute to their medicinal and therapeutic properties.


The use of herbal tea as a topical toner is a fairly recent invention.  I mean, herbal teas have been around for a long, long time.  But using it topically in a medicinal way to benefit the skin is much more recently popular.  Yes, there are many ways to make herbal lotions, ointments, pastes and creams.  But wow, how easy to make a toner and what a great result from using it.


How easy is easy?  All you need do is take 6 ounces of distilled water and infuse it with an organic tea bag (or 1 Tablespoon of dried herb).  Let it steep 10 minutes or so and strain it when cool.  Add a few drops of pure essential oils; Lavender (anti-inflammatory, soothing), Chamomile (gentle, great for all skin issues), Rose (hydrating and antiseptic) or Rose geranium (cleansing) these are all good for the skin.  Then you will mix that with 1 Tablespoon of organic aloe juice.  Aloe juice can now be bought at most grocery stores or health food establishments.  Double this recipe if need be, to keep enough on hand.  Keep it in a closed container in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.  This is good to use daily.  After you have cleaned your skin, use it as a final face toner. Simply splash it on and let it dry.  It can help your skin better absorb moisturizers or skin care products.  


There are many great herbs that help with the skin, and I'll list some here:

*Chamomile: the flower helps heal and reduce inflammation and redness of the skin

*Peppermint: tightens pores, combats acne, cools, calms inflammation and is good for oily skin

*Calendula: hydrating, slightly astringent and skin healing for any problem

*Rose petal: hydrates, balances, good for aging skin, good for dry skin


So if you feel the need to brighten your complexion, don't forget that you have the answer right in your kitchen.  In minutes you can have balanced pH levels and glowing skin, tightened pores.  Just be sure to choose the right herbs to target your specific skin issues or problems.  It is the best possible way of putting your best face forward.
