All you need is to steep green tea for 5 minutes, and then add in 2 tablespoons of the tea to a bowl and dissolve 1/2 teaspoon of Epsom salt into the bowl. Next, add 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay. Stir, and then spread the paste on your skin for 10-15 minutes and you’ll have a gorgeous, oil-free complexion in no time.

Steep a cup o black tea for 5 minutes, meanwhile cut up a cucumber into slices. To the tea, add honey and give it a good stir. Now add the cucumbers. You can also include a drop or two of essential oils, just be sure to let it all soak for at least 10 minutes before applying.
