Relief for Super Chapped Lips

lips3 (1)

 

Summer sun or cool weather winds can leave lips feeling tender and chapped. Before you reach for the chap-stick, try this all-natural remedy that will condition & heal hurting lips, leaving the skin soft and healthy. The tannin in Green Tea

soothes burned skin while anti-oxidants & poly-phenols combat inflammation and heal irritated lips. Applying tea to chapped lips can actually be more effective than traditional chap-sticks, as chap-sticks often contain harmful or irritating

ingredients like petro-chemicals and substances that can act as allergens. Dampen a soft cloth in a strong brew of green tea (1-2 TBS of loose leaf tea per 6 oz of hot water), allow cloth to cool to a luke-warm or cool temperature before

applying to lips. Hold cloth to lips for 5-10 minutes.  If no loose-leaf tea is available, tea bags may be used instead.

Tea Tip

file0001965829310Is Your Skin Itchy, Irritated, or Dry?
This soothing, anti-aging powerhouse can help!

Chamomile Tea is well-known for its calming, stress-reducing effects and is widely used as a night-time tea to promote sleep.  But did you know that Chamomile is just as calming for the skin? When applied topically, it has been shown that the herb will reduce redness, fight dry & flaky skin, help with eczema & psoriasis, soothe a rash, and since its anti-microbial it can also help speed healing.

Packed with anti-oxidants, chamomile can help protect the skin from free radical damage and suppress the visible signs of aging.

Chamomile is gentle on sensitive or fragile skin which makes it ideal for use after waxing and to ease a diaper rash, sunburn, bedsore, or hemorrhoids.

To Use:
Brew a cup of Chamomile tea and saturate a soft cloth with the infusion. Apply to the affected area for up to 10 minutes. Chamomile’s anti-septic properties make it a great addition to home-made cleansers and soaps as well.

Tea Tip

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have Puffiness & Dark Circles Around The Eyes?

Here is a fix for tired eyes: Place used tea bags in refrigerator to chill- Black, Green, Oolong, and White teas will all work. Squeeze out the chilled bags, lie down, and place over the eyes for about 10 minutes. Caffeine helps to eliminate dark circles and puffiness by shrinking the blood vessels in the skin.
