(ThyBlackMan.com) Whether you’re trying to tighten and brighten your skin or fighting dark circles and wrinkles, using green tea can give your amazing results as it is good for your skin. Try these green tea hacks and see the result yourself.

Green Tea Face Mask

Put a green tea bag in hot water for a minute. Take it out of the water and then let its temperature come down. While you wait, mash some raspberries in a small cup. Now cut the tea bag and mix the green tea with mashed raspberries. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it on the skin for 5-10 minutes and then wash your face with cold water.

Dark Spot Remover

If you are looking for green tea hacks to remove dark spots, this one can help. Your green tea bags can help reduce dark circles and puffiness around your eyes. Place two green tea bags in the fridge for an hour or two. Take them out and then hold them gently against your eyes. The contents in your tea bag will help the blood vessels around your eyes to shrink, making you look and feel fresh. You can repeat the same procedure twice in a week.

Keeping Your Skin Hydrated

You can re-brew your used green tea bags to hydrate your skin. Keep the tea bag or leaves in hot water for a minute or two and let it cool to room temperature. Pour the water into a spray bottle and use it on your skin. You can also apply the tea water on your skin with a cotton pad. Some people do this with normal tea, but green tea is rich in antioxidants so it is great for rehydrating dry skin.

Green Tea for Hair Growth

All the major studies related to green tea and its effect on hair growth contradict. Researchers from Boston, Massachusetts used mice in their experiments and researchers from Saitama Cancer Center, Japan revealed how green tea suppresses the production of TNF-alpha and prevents hair loss. However, further studies should be carried out to clear the doubts that most people have about green tea hacks for hair growth. A common result obtained from the research is that the antioxidant properties of green tea seem to be very important for the growth of new hair.

Acne Scar Removal

Acne and scars are common. You may have heard that drinking green tea regularly can help reduce breakouts, but its effects are only visible if you take it on a regular basis. For scar removal, put green tea leaves in heated water so it can release its nutrients. Once the water reaches room temperature, dip a piece of cotton cloth in the water and keep it on your face. Make sure that the cloth is big enough so that it can cover your face properly. Keep it for 10 minutes and let the skin absorb the water. Wait for 20-30 minutes and then wash your face with cold water. You can also spray rose water on your face and wipe it with cotton pads.

Drink Green Tea with Ginger

Ginger contains magnesium, zinc, and chromium which can improve blood flow in your body. It also helps prevent fever, cold, and cough. Scientists have found that green tea helps keep the lining of blood vessels stay relaxed and make them able to withstand blood pressure rise and drops. By protecting the body against blood clot formation, green tea with ginger helps keep heart diseases away.

Centuries ago, green tea was grown in some parts of China. Today, it is available in many parts of the world. The most important contents of green tea are polyphenols and flavonoids. It is also a rich source of antioxidant EGCG which helps protect the cells from damage and premature aging.

Remember that these green tea hacks should be used with caution because green tea has caffeine. If you’re sensitive to this particular chemical then you should not drink more than one cup a day. If you are trying to conceive or are pregnant then green tea may not be a good choice for you. Use it in a limit.
