How to Make a DIY Face Mask with Purple Tea
Here’s how you can use the amazing antioxidants inside purple tea for your skin. Today, we’ll be helping you make your very own DIY face mask for acne prone and oily skin. Using purple tea, lemon juice, and bananas, you can make a DIY face mask for the glowing skin you deserve.
- Purple tea leaves
- Lemon juice
- Hot water
Step 1: Brew a Strong Batch of Purple Tea
Brew a strong batch of purple tea — and we mean strong. This will encourage all the antioxidants inside the tea to come out and really give your skin a treat.
Step 2: Add Lemon Juice
Add lemon juice to the mix.
Step 3: Mix and Cool
Put the brewed tea and lemon juice mix in a bottle. Cool it down inside the fridge for 30 minutes. Mixing it with the banana while it is hot may create a viscous mixture.
Step 4: Mash the Banana
Mash the banana, and add the purple tea-lemon mixture. Mix them well until they achieve a not-too-thick-not-too-watery consistency.
Step 5: Apply the Face Mask
Apply the face mask as you would using one from the store. Avoid contact with your eyes as the lemon juice may cause eye irritation.
Step 6: Use Face Mask and Enjoy
Let the face mask sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Enjoy this time with an audiobook and a cup of purple tea. Rinse with warm water. Complete your normal facial cleansing routine.
What is Purple Tea?
Purple tea is a unique variety of tea exclusively grown in the Mt. Kenya region. It thrives in the rich volcanic mountain soils surrounding the now-extinct volcano. This particular variety of Camellia sinensis has been studied extensively by the Kenyan Tea Research Institute. It has been given the name TRFK 306.
What Makes Purple Tea Good for the Skin?
Purple tea gets its name from its distinct purple-red leaves. They contain high levels of antioxidants called anthocyanins, making them perfect DIY face mask ingredients. These antioxidants are also what give blueberries, cranberries, and grapes their purplish color. Purple tea is widely regarded as a great all-around antioxidant, with some studies suggesting it may help reduce the risk of cancer.
Why Should I Use a DIY Face Mask with Purple Tea?
- Anthocyanins track down free radicals in the body, preventing inflammation in the cells.
- Purple tea helps reduce signs of aging.
- It evens out skin tone.
- Purple tea helps fight acne and excessive oil production.
