Peppermint Tea Facial Toner - Natural Menthol and Salicyclic Acid balance skin and fight acne
Pliny the elder, 79 AD, in Naturalis Historia, it tells us that the Greeks and Romans crowned themselves with peppermint at their feasts and adorned their tables with its sprays, and that their cooks flavored both their sauces and their wines with its essence. It is a popular flavor for confectioneries and products like chewing gum and toothpaste. Peppermint can also be found in some shampoos, soaps and skin care products. Archaeological
evidence places its' medicinal and culinary use as at ten thousand years ago or longer. Peppermint is a hybrid between spearmint and water mint and contains high concentrations of menthol.
Menthol, the basic element in peppermint leaves, lowers the secretion of oil from the sebaceous glands and balances the pH levels of the skin, thereby reducing overall acne and breakouts. The astringent, antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties of peppermint help diminish the appearance of rashes and redness of the skin and fight acne and blackheads, while producing a cooling sensation. Peppermint Tea Facial toner can help your skin shed dead skin cells and open up all of your pores due to its' naturally high concentrations of menthol and salicyclic acid.
A cup of peppermint tea will also help soothe your stomach and rejuvenate your skin, so achieve more balanced oil-free and flawless skin with the consistent use of Peppermint Tea Facials. With the changing seasons, treat yourself to a cup of peppermint tea and use the remainder to tone your face.
