Green Tea for Skin
Less of a coffee drinker and more into a hot cup of tea to get your ready for the workday? Another morning beverage that's ideal for your skin is green tea. Fielding explains that much like cucumbers, green tea can work to invigorate and clear your skin, while decreasing any swelling. "Green tea improves the skin complexion by reducing inflammation, healing blemishes and reducing the signs of scarring. Green tea bags can also help with puffy eyes and dark circles. It reduces the signs of aging by helping with sagging skin, sun spots, fine line and wrinkles," she notes.

Try this healing DIY face mask made with honey and matcha, an extra-potent form of green tea. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of matcha to form a paste. Depending on the consistency of your honey, you may need slightly more. Spread the mixture over your face and neck using circular movements. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and remove with a warm, wet washcloth.
