DIY Green Tea Scrub For Beautiful Skin

at

I love DIY scrubs that can be whipped up in minutes. These all natural homemade scrubs are simple to make and leave the skin soft and exfoliated. One of my favorite treatments is a DIY Green Tea Scrub that requires three commonly available ingredients- Green Tea, Sugar, and Olive Oil. I made this scrub today morning.

Today was my much needed at-home spa day. In fact, I like to pamper my skin with a DIY treatment at least once a week. One of my favorite ways to relax is by giving myself a foot spa at home. I had shared a post about doing a foot spa in four simple steps a few days back.

Coming back to this DIY scrub, I have added brewed green tea water in this scrub for its skin benefits. However, you can skip it if you want to make a big batch that lasts for 2-3 uses. Just ensure that it is stored in an airtight container to prevent it from spoiling.

If you are a fan of sugar scrubs, then you will love using this green tea scrub. It effectively removes all impurities and leaves you with healthy-looking skin. I have used olive oil as my skin needs extra moisture during cooler weather. You can substitute it with coconut oil if you want. This DIY scrub is gentle enough for use on the entire body. Be extra careful while using it in the shower as it can get slippery because of the oil.

DIY Green Tea Scrub For Beautiful Skin

 

Green tea– Green tea refreshes me and uplifts my mood. In fact, I am sipping my cup of green tea while writing this post 🙂 . Drinking green tea has its own benefits but do you know that this magical drink is great for the skin? It is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals. Not only that, green tea soothes tired skin and has anti-aging properties too.

Sugar-We all know that cutting down sugar from the diet is essential for healthy, glowing skin. However, you don’t have to worry before using it in your beauty routine. Sugar is a great scrub that gently exfoliates to reveal beautiful skin underneath. It is a natural humectant that draws moisture from the environment and hydrates the skin. These properties make sugar excellent for use in your skincare routine.

Olive Oil– Olive oil needs no introduction. It is known to be one of the best ingredients for skin and hair. Olive oil is an excellent moisturizer that works wonders for the skin. It is rich in fats and antioxidants that nourish the skin.

 

This homemade green tea scrub is a treat for the skin. Want to know more about it? Keep reading this post!

    Believe it or not, my wife did almost the exact same thing. It’s in a bottle on the dresser now as I type. She says its very helpful to clean away the skin and moisturize it at the same time!

    I’m a huge fan of body scrubs but I’ve never attempted to make my own. This looks easy enough. And I love how it uses ingredients we already have in our pantry 🙂

    Who would not benefit from a day at home including a nice foot scrub following perhaps by a foot massage? This is a super simple and healthy recipe to try.

    I love DIY scrubs as well although I have to confess that I have not tried making my own! Green tea is meant to be full of anti-oxidants for the skin so it sounds like a great scrub for our skin!

    Great, so this stands as a task for me today, I really need to remove the dry tanned skin off naturally. Thanks for it!

    I usually use sugar and almond oil as a scrub. But after reading this, I’m going to try the sugar, green tea and olive oil. And luckily I have all those ingredients at home already 🙂

    I always love creating my own Skincare products as they are free of the harsh chemicals and toxins that can strip your skin. This scrub definitely sounds like a good one for my sensitive skin.

    this is what i was looking for. I was not aware that green tea can be an exfoliator so this is surely going to help me out.

    I’ve become a huge fan of diy home beauty treatments. Truth be told, I always do them when my husband is traveling. I’ll whip up a face mask, deep condition my hair, the works. The one you can bet I’ll be trying this one next. I’m a green tea lover through and through. x

    Wow that really is easy to make. There’s only a few ingredients. Olive oil is great for the skin and so is tea.

      Definitely Nina! Both these ingredients are full of antioxidants!
