Items Recommended to Make a Homemade Green Tea & Aloe Vera Face Mask
Green Tea & Aloe Vera Face Mask Directions:
- Mix the water and green tea together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and remove from the heat.
- Allow the green tea to steep for 30 minutes or longer.
- Once the green tea is ready, mix all the ingredients together in a glass bowl. Do not use metal utensils. It may appear soupy, do not add in more clay to thicken. It will thicken as it sits.
- Portion the face mask out into glass jars with lids.
Using Your Green Tea & Aloe Vera Face Mask
Clean your face and then apply warm water to open up your pores. Apply face mask. Allow the face mask to dry completely, about 30 minutes. Wash off with warm water and apply a moisturizer.
