Even though I don’t see this day as more than a Hallmark holiday to celebrate a man (Valentinus) being beheaded, I’ll go along with it!
I hope you all had wonderful Valentines day with your love or loves. I hope you received lovely gifts, and a lot of well- LOVE!
This was an everyday, day for me. I don’t really celebrate Valentines day because I personally see it as just another day that could be everyday! Telling the person you love that you love them! I did however, make it the best that could. I had a homemade green tea steam facial, and an oatmeal, honey and green tea facial while I was cleaning my closet (spring/summer fashion anyone?! ◕‿-), and rearranging my room. If you’d like to try these out then here are the instructions!
GREEN TEA FACE STEAM:
The green tea face steam will open up your pores, and will help prevent acne, and has also been proven to help prevent skin cancer. It can also reduce sun damage.
All you need is:
- Lipton’s Green tea bags
- Hot water
- Large bowl
- Teapot (or pot)
First, you need to get about 4 cups of water and put it in the teapot. Put on the stove, and put it on high until it whistles (or starts to boil in the pot) then pour it in the bowl. While waiting for the teapot to whistle (or boil) put your teabag in the bowl.
**USE OVEN MITTS IF USING POT TO POUR!!**
Secondly start your timer for 15 minutes, then sit with your face at least 2 inches above the bowl with a towel draped over your head and the bowl.
After that just pour the water out of the bowl into the sink, and throw the tea bag away!
OATMEAL, HONEY, GREEN TEA FACIAL
All you need is:
- 3 tbs of Powdered ground oatmeal
- 4 tsp green tea
- 2 tsp honey
- 2-3 drops of tea tree oil
All you need to do is grind the oats and put them in the bowl, then mix all the ingredients (in any order) together in the bowl, and then put on your face! Leave it on for 20 minutes, rinse with warm water, and then cold to close your pores. Pat dry with a towel. This will tighten your pores and reduce oiliness in your face!
**If you have bags under your eyes you can also put the wet tea bags under your eyes and it will reduce your bags.**
