If you struggle with large pores or oily skin, try this soothing black tea face compress! There are properties in black tea that are effective at tightening up pores and regulating oil production in skin. If you feel your face becoming greasy, use this compress to eliminate excess oil and give your face a natural glow!



  • 1 tea bag or 1 tsp black tea leaves
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 drops jojoba essential oil


Boil 1 cup of water and add the tea to it. Let the tea steep until the water is a warm, comfortable temperature and then remove the tea bag or strain out the leaves. Stir the jojoba oil into the brewed tea and saturate a soft face cloth with the tea. Squeeze out the excess liquid and spread the cloth out across your face. Make sure the cloth is pressed against your whole face and compress for 20 minutes.

Afterwards, rinse your face with warm water, pat dry, and finish with your favorite moisturizer. Repeat this process every day for a week for best results!
