Why we love Green Tea for the skin?
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. It is rich in polyphenols that have effects like reducing inflammation and helping to fight certain illnesses.

Multipurpose beauty products not only save time in the morning but cut down on costs. The loose mineral foundation is the perfect staple for any foundation routine. Here are three ways to put your loose foundation to use:

After applying creme, stick or creme-to-powder foundation, loose mineral powder should be the next step to complete your look. The purpose of loose mineral powder is to seal the moist consistency of foundation. It will make it last for hours! Plus it's perfect for those with oily/acne-prone skin, as it helps control oil on the skin’s surface.
If you have 10 mins or less…
Wearing loose mineral foundation alone is perfect for days when you are in a time crunch. Using a large round Kabuki brush, dust a few sheer layers of loose foundation over your forehead, cheeks and chin areas. It will give your skin a beautiful, healthy, natural-looking finish.
If you have 5 mins or less…
Dab a damp loose mineral foundation powder (matching shade) covered beauty sponge and apply on top of the under-eye concealer application. It is similar to baking, but this method locks in the concealer for a full day of coverage.
