Winter is the perfect time to settle into a layer of warm blankets while nursing a freshly brewed cup of tea. So it makes complete sense that January is National Hot Tea Month, since we’ll already be doubling down on our favorite brews.
It’s common knowledge that tea can be a cure-all for everything from physical distress like menstrual cramps and digestive problems to psychological issues like stress and anxiety. However, despite our respect for the many health benefits of tea, many of us continue to underestimate all of the beauty benefits of a good blend.
Luckily for us, there is a whole world of tea and tea-infused beauty products we can test out and celebrate this National Tea Month!
GlamGlow has a special place in our tea-loving hearts because it regularly infuses its products with the Teaoxi technology (which is essentially a tea infusion). This bubble mask in particular harnesses the bubbling power of charcoal, bamboo, and green tea to reveal deeply cleansed skin.
