Easy DIY Green Tea Scrub/Mask For Acne Prone Skin 

This mask has helped me in the past to keep my skin under control, and it makes your skin so soft. I'd recommend to do this twice a week so it's not so harsh on your skin. 

Try and keep this up as it helps with pigmentation caused by acne and it helps unclog pores which leads to break outs.

You will need:

• Brewed Green tea – has antibacterial properties which helps eliminate bacteria that can cause breakouts

• Honey – full of antioxidants which slows down aging and has also got antibacterial properties.

• Sugar – is a natural skin exfoliant. This will help get rid of dead skin and unclog pores.

Add 4 tablespoons of green tea to the bowl then add 8 table spoons of sugar to the mixture. 

Mix together until a thick consistency forms.

If the mixture is too watery, add another table spoon of sugar, or if it's too thick add a tea spoon of green tea

You want the consistency to be thick but not too thick so the mixture should fall off the spoon. 

After you get the consistency add the honey to the mix and stir together then your good to go.

If you want a bigger batch slowly keep adding one teaspoon of green tea and then two table spoons of sugar to make the batch bigger. 

You can also keep the scrub in your fridge for up to 3 days.

Apply the mixture to the areas you wish to treat.

You can use this scrub for the whole of your body, it's also good to use this scrub on your legs a day before you shave so you're not at risk of getting ingrowing hairs.

When you apply the scrub it will feel sticky. 

In soft circular motions, begin to rub into the skin. 

Do this for a minute so you're uncloggingyour pores, and getting rid of dead skin.

You also have the option to leave the scrub on your skin until the mixture goes a little hard. It can act as a mask and will allow the skin loving ingredients to penetrate.

I definitely do this on my face and my shoulders. 

I normally leave the mixture on for 10 minutes that's enough time for the sugar to harden (that's when you know it's done). 

When the mixture thickens some product may fall off your skin because as I said the sugar hardens so be mindful that this can be a bit messy!

When it's time to wash off, just make sure that you've got all the product off your skin. Normally areas where the sugar will stay is your hairline and by your ears.

Feel how soft your skin is afterwards.

By Exfoliating, you're removing the dead skin, allowing your products to penetrate into the skin more making it a lot healthier.

After doing this twice a week for a while you will notice that your skin is more radiant, glowy and your breakouts should improve. 

It also helps with pigmentation in the long run. Like I said you must use this twice a week, if you're finding that this is too harsh on your skin then maybe try this once a week.

I hope this mask works well for you! My skin always feels lovely and soft afterwards.
