2. Beauty Tea
Beauty on the outside comes from within, which means that it is also important to watch out for what you eat and drink every day.
Ever heard of the saying, "you are what you eat"? Well natural teas can be even more effective than creams or topical products when it comes to your skin's appearance and your whole body function.
For example, Butterfly pea flower tea is a natural blue tea often used for its beauty boosting properties. The high antioxidants in these pretty flowers help to promote circulation to your skin, hair and eyes. It can boost collagen production and iron out wrinkles.
- 1 Teaspoon butterfly pea tea
- 1 cup boiling water
Simply combine the two ingredients and steep for 10 minutes.
The butterfly pea tea doesn't have much of a taste, if anything many have said it tastes grassy. Crystal Blue Tea
has been created to make it taste more pleasant with added pandan (sweet dessert leaf) and lemongrass.
Many have said it tastes like Froot Loops when a drop of lemon is added (plus it changes colour from blue to purple!). You can get yours here

7. Teeth Whitener
We all want our teeth to look pearly white, right? As long as you have some strawberries and baking soda, can get some teeth whitening action going.
How does it work you ask? The baking soda gets rid of stains and discolouration while killing the bacteria that causes plaque and tartar.
Meanwhile the strawberries removes the deep staining from the teeth as it has malic acid.
Once the 2 ingredients are mixed, the sodium bicarbonate react together to give off small carbon dioxide bubbles which help to cleans.
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (please do not confuse this with baking powder)
- 1 Strawberry

Doing this once or twice a week is a great way to help remove stains and whiten your teeth naturally.
