Green Tea is well known for its gentle healing properties because it is very rich in antioxidants. It has been used in beauty regimens for thousands of years. Not only has it been shown to help delay or reduce signs of aging and wrinkles, it’s excellent for exfoliation, hydration and softer skin too.

To use your green tea sugar scrub, open the jar and give it a good stir. Wash your hands and apply it to your face and neck with your fingers. Gently massage the scrub in a circular motion for a minute or two. Then, using a soft washcloth dipped in warm water, pat your face until all of the sugar scrub is removed.
Most facial scrubs can be used 1 – 2 times per week but you may want to test a small patch to start to see what works best for you.
