Green Tea as well as the acai berry, cranberries, blueberries and others possess many health benefits and are considered to be a superfood. A superfood commonly refers to a class of foods known for their very high antioxidant content. Many reports and extensive research show that there are remarkable properties contained in green tea, which can help to cure or prevent some serious health conditions.
Green tea can also be used as a refreshing facial and body spritz or toner. Simply save your used green tea leaves and after re-brewing the leaves, pour the tea into a spray bottle. Allow the tea to cool in the fridge for several hours. Take this refreshing mist with you to the beach, tennis court or even hiking on hot summer days. It can also be used to provide relief from minor sunburn and insect bites.
If you want to maximize the antioxidants of your spritz or toner (which are diminished with each brewing), try this suggested guide below.
