I've had this bottle of Vitamin E Oil for a while now. I've used it on and off but because it feels so heavy on my face I never got to religiously using it.

A couple of days back I took it out again. The thing is this - I'm off coffee. No coffee since four days. Not a diet, its a just - like - that thingy.

Its like this - I ran out of milk and coffee and haven't made the trip to the grocers yet. And since I cant have coffee anytime after early morning I don't get to it the rest of the day. Because I'm off coffee and I still need something hot in the morning, I started on green tea - Lipton Green Tea with Mandarin . This one is pretty good. I don't mind the taste at all.


From all the left over tea bags I collected, I decided to do the Green tea face mask. Except this time I added Vitamin E oil to the tea leaves. The tea leaves ended up being too big to stick to my face . So I squeezed the leaves to get all the juice outta them and patted it all over my face with the Vitamin E Oil. Kept this on for 30 minutes. Then I wet my hand with warm water and massaged my face for a bit . Next in the shower I let the hot water on my face and did not use any cleanser.

Once I was out, I could feel the joy that comes from a super soft face.

This can be done with any oil. My best friend uses Baby Oil. I wanna use up the Vitamin E Oil I had . Plus its known to be a good nutrient for the skin, right ? The Green Tea hopefully did its part and added the anti oxidants !

Moral Of The Story : Oil + Water = Soft Well Moisturized Skin

Oil on its own , on dry skin doesn't get absorbed well and feels heavy. But with a bit of warm water , it gets absorbed well, feels lighter and the results are blog worthy !

I will be visiting a Asian store this weekend. Anybody tried the powdered green tea ? I've heard it makes for a great face mask. Any ideas on what else I can pick up from there, beauty wise ? I know I need Oyster & Fish sauce.

Love,
Indian Girl

That sounds like an excellent at home facial. Especially with the winter weather your skin will be glowing and protected all month long.

I usually apply coconut oil before my shower and take a nice hot water shower and let water do its job - the skin is really soft and moisturized that I usually don't need any additional moisturizer. Works well for a lazy bum like me :)

very good post and just what i needed!! I have this bottle of vitamin E capsules that I bought for dry skin and I popped one capsule, tried it on my face and it was so thick to rub it in that I gave up. I was just about to throw it out and now i am gonna give this a try...
A quick question...i read somewhere that vitamin E is somewhat comedogenic... any thoughts on it??

Good idea! Vitamin E can help to offset some of the damage associated with sun exposure as well as improve the appearance of aging skin and Green tea contains a cocktail of potent antioxidants which help fight damage caused by free radicals.So it would surely be great for your skin.Good luck.

Vitamin E is related to eye and skin, more people like to know about it and be aware from its deficiency.vitamin E working as a oxidation in the body cells and prevents breakdown of body tissues.

I love these easy home tips...much better than spending hours in a salon and coming with an empty purse.The E oil seems to be effective...green tea is really good.
