Whether you’re looking to relax, heal, cleanse or boost your health, tea has got you covered. It is one of the most popular beverages in the world and offers many surprising, yet effective ways to improve your health, mind and body.
In the summer, brew a green or black tea and use it as a face and body rinse after a day at the beach. The antioxidants and cooling effects of the tea help reduce redness, blotchiness and sunburn. It’s a great way to remove dirt and makeup residue, too!
Tea can also be used as a natural deodorant. Simply brew a strong cup of green or oolong tea and allow to cool. Then spray on underarms and spritz into hair to help protect against odor. Tea can also be used as a hair rinse, just pour into a bottle and use to rinse freshly washed hair. The antioxidants in the tea help to protect against oxidation, shine and luster.
PM: If you’re starting to explore the vast tea world, it’s helpful to first decide if you want caffeine or are trying to avoid it (a lot of people don’t). Next, figure out if you prefer fruity, floral, spiced or earthy teas. Finally, consider if you’re more into loose leaf or tea bags. From there, you can narrow down your options and find a tea that’s right for you!
