Skin exfoliation is essential for removing dead cells, oil and even acne. If done correctly, it eliminates blemishes, lines, smoothes and thins the skin. It is like a preparation before hydration – a factor that is also of great importance. The experience of these two practices guarantees a smooth, beautiful and healthy skin.

Green tea and honey scrub

Prepare a tea with green tea leaves. Then, separate one or two tablespoons of this tea and place in a container. Wait for it to cool down. Then, add sugar until you create a good application consistency, which does not run off. Finally add a tablespoon of honey and mix well.

Apply this mixture to clean, lightly dampened face. With your hands, perform circular movements across the skin, lightly and smoothly. Afterwards, wash your face well with cold water and, if you prefer, apply a moisturizing cream.


Green tea acts as an antioxidant, which is, it prevents premature aging, in addition to fighting free radicals and degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. In addition, the substances contained in green tea help reduce bacteria that cause pimples or inflammation. According to studies, this plant also protects against UV rays, and significantly improves the general condition of the skin.

Honey, in addition to being an antioxidant, acts as a moisturizer, regenerates dead cells and promotes deep cleansing. It has hydrogen peroxide, which is very effective in treating acne, in addition to being excellent in preventing the appearance of skin blemishes.
