Dr. Doris Day's Homemade Facial
White tea 1/4 cup dark organic honey 3 tbsps. aloe gel 1 cucumber sliced to 1/8" round slices
Brew eight cups strong white tea. Add honey and aloe. Cool to room temperature, add the cucumber slices and refrigerate for four hours or overnight.
Apply the cucumber slices to your face for three to five minutes as needed. More cucumber slices can be added as needed until the liquid is used up or for up to one week. This also works as a great eye depuffer.
The caffeine, antioxidants, soothing effects of aloe, antiseptic effects of honey and astringent effect of cucumber all work perfectly together to hydrate, calm the skin and minimize the appearance of pores.
