Soothing Black Tea! Even works for soreness from nursing baby!
I knew I loved black tea in terms of skincare because I have quite a few Juara products with it formulated into them that work brilliantly in terms of moisturizing and improving skin imperfections. In addition, black tea’s unique properties for soothing the skin are great (to say the least), but after I saw its medicinal use in the hospital last week while visiting my daughter (and my new granddaughter!) I became extremely impressed with it.
On day two of my daughter trying to breast feed her baby, she simply couldn’t take the pain. Even her post labor pain medication she was taking was not working for the breast pain. She was crying and called the nurse to come in and help her. Not so much because she was in so much pain but because she so wanted her baby to be able to get the beautiful benefits of nursing. The nurse said she had just the thing to soothe her swollen sore breasts. She walked back in a few minutes later with a bunch of black-tea tea bags and dipped them in water and placed the wet tea bags on my daughter’s breasts. She started feeling better almost immediately and began nursing her baby again that very night. She said it has never hurt since and her baby is thriving and very, very happy!
Tomorrow I’ll list some great black tea and other types of tea skin care products that I love in terms of the beauty and health of skin.
