This blog was created out of my interest in natural organic living and healthy lifestyle choices. I began researching about toxins in cleaning products and organic versus non-organic clothing and foods and was amazed at what I found. After some more research, I decided to start making small changes in my lifestyle to live a healthier, more organic and natural life. Creating this blog was an easy way for me to share my real-life changes in my lifestyle with others.

Homemade Green Tea Facial Scrub / Mask
I made this awesome facial scrub / mask using only green tea and yogurt! I've been using my Tate's Natural Miracle Shampoo to wash my face everyday and wanted to exfoliate twice per week to remove the dead skin cells and unblock any clogged pores. I have heard that plain yogurt is a great base for any face mask and green tea is good for skin, too.
Plain yogurt & green tea.
I just bought regular plain yogurt at Jewel and Lipton green tea bags. I put some yogurt in my food processor and cut a few tea bags and added green tea leaves. I mixed it on the pulse setting and kept adding yogurt and tea leaves until I got a good consistency.

My finished yogurt & green tea facial scrub!
I rubbed this mixture all over my face and it felt very soothing and cool. I scrubbed my face in circular motions to exfoliate and then allowed the facial scrub to sit on my face for a few minutes to moisturize and soak in. Then, I just rinsed with warm water until everything was off. My face felt so soft and healthy!
I refrigerated the remaining mixture in a plastic container so I can use it for the next few weeks! I am going off the expiration on the yogurt container. This is definitely going to be my new favorite facial scrub!
