My Green Tea Ritual

For years we've known that certain herbal teas are good for you. They speed up your metabolism, fill your body with antioxidants, and have a natural calming effect. I've decided to experience the joys of tea for myself and to see if it actually makes a difference. So far, so good!

(1) Relax: After a long day, I heat up some water and brew a cup of Tazo Green Tea. It is infused with chamomile and spearmint to add extra flavor. It tastes great as is, without sugar, milk or lemon.

(2) Soothe: I leave about 1/3 of the green tea in the cup before going to sleep. The next morning, I use it to soothe puffy eyes or to tone my skin. After cleansing, take 2-3 cotton balls and dab them in the tea. Rub the moistened cotton balls over your face for instant toning and a refreshed look. Trust me, you'll notice a major difference!

(3) Bathe: Save the tea bag for a relaxing bath later on that night. Run warm bath water and throw the tea bag in, letting it steep. The aroma of a tea bath is super calming and does wonders for your skin! (add a little almond milk for moisture)

Here are my favorite brands of teas: and

Happy drinking  : )
