Tea And Coffee Natural Skin Care Recipes - Gabriela Green Blog - www.gabriela.green

Tea and coffee can be many times the topics which are creating disputes between the exclusive tea lovers and the coffee lovers. But this time there will be no dispute. We will talk about the benefits of both tea and coffee and how they can help us in our beauty routines. All the recipes will use natural ingredients as we all love natural skin care products.

I am big fan of diy products for personal care. I usually prefer them to the expensive cosmetics. With the DIY products you know exactly what you are applying on your body. Usually the ingredients needed are already in your home, you just need to learn how to put them together and transform them into a great natural product.

Natural Skin Care Recipes

Here is how coffee and tea can be used for face care products:
