[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Making a Green Tea Toner

  1. Heat a pot or kettle of water until it’s nearly boiling. Heat the water over high heat until you see bubbles start to rise from the bottom. Then, remove the water from the heat to use for your tea.[1]

    • The water doesn’t need to be boiling. If it starts to boil, that’s totally okay. However, it will take your tea longer to brew and cool down.
  2. Place a green tea bag in a mug. Use an mug to brew the green tea so you have a good batch of toner. Put the bag on the bottom of the mug and drape the string over the side.[2]

    • If you prefer to use loose tea, put about 1-2 tbsp (2-4 g) of tea into a strainer, then put it into the mug.
  3. Pour the hot water over the tea bag. Use a towel to protect your hand as you slowly pour the water into the mug. Once the mug is nearly full, set the pot on a cool stove burner or a towel. Then, gently swish your tea bag around in the cup to distribute the green tea.[3]

    • Your water should immediately start to turn a muddy green color.
  4. Let your tea steep for about 5-10 minutes. Drape the string on your tea bag or strainer back over the edge of your mug. Then, set a timer for 5-10 minutes and leave your tea to steep. Once the timer goes off, remove the tea bag and either discard it or save the tea leaves for another treatment.[4]

    • You can make a mask using brewed tea leaves. See the recipe below in the section about masks.
  5. Wait for the green tea to cool, which takes about 30 minutes. Don’t put hot green tea on your face. Instead, set a timer for 30 minutes and leave the mug to cool. After the timer goes off, test the tea with your fingertips to make sure it’s fully cooled.[5]

    • It’s okay if the tea is a little warm.
  6. Add 5-10 drops of tea tree oil if you have oily skin or acne. While this is optional, it can help treat oily or acne-prone skin. Simply hold your bottle of tea tree oil over the green tea and sprinkle 5-10 drops into the brewed tea. Gently stir the mixture to combine the ingredients.[6]

    • You can find tea tree essential oil at local health food stores or online.
  7. Pour the cooled tea into a clean, reusable bottle. Use a spray bottle or airtight container to hold your toner. Hold your container over the sink, then slowly pour the toner from the mug into the container. Finally, screw on the lid.[7]

  8. Use your fingers to apply the toner to your skin after cleansing. Pour a little toner into your hand, then use your fingers to rub it onto your face. Apply more toner to your skin as necessary to cover your entire face.[8]

    • If you used a spray bottle, you can simply spritz the toner onto your face.
    • Use your toner once or twice a day after washing your face.

[Edit]Steaming Your Face with Green Tea

  1. Pour boiling water into a heatproof bowl at your table. Heat a pot of water over high heat until bubbles are rippling across the surface. Then, remove the water from the heat and pour it into a heatproof bowl. Use a towel or pot holders to place the bowl on a table in front of a chair.[9]

    • Be careful with the hot water because you can burn yourself.
  2. Cut open a green tea bag and pour the leaves into the boiling water. Use a pair of scissors to open the tea bag or rip it with your fingers. Then, sprinkle the tea leaves over the water. They will begin to steep immediately.[10]
    Use Green Tea on Your Face to Achieve Prettier Skin Step 10 Version 3.jpg
    • Use all of the tea leaves for best results.
  3. Let the green tea steep for 1-2 minutes before you steam your face. The green tea will continue to steep as you do the steam. However, it’s best to give it about 1-2 minutes so that you can get the benefits of the green tea at the beginning of your steam. Plus, this gives your water time to cool a bit so you won’t scald your skin. Watch a clock or use a timer as you wait.[11]
    Use Green Tea on Your Face to Achieve Prettier Skin Step 11 Version 3.jpg
    • You should see the water changing colors as the tea releases its properties into it.
  4. Drape a towel over your head and lean over the bowl. Place a large bath towel over the back of your head and your shoulders. Then, lean over the bowl so that your face is directly over the steam. The towel will trap the steam around your face so that it can treat your skin.[12]
    Use Green Tea on Your Face to Achieve Prettier Skin Step 12 Version 3.jpg
    • Make sure the towel is surrounding the bowl on all sides to fully trap the steam.
    • If you get too hot, lift the towel to release some of the steam.
  5. Steam your face for 5-10 minutes. Hold your face over the bowl for up to 10 minutes. Breathe in deeply and try to relax to create a spa experience. This gives the steam time to penetrate your skin and remove impurities.[13]
    Use Green Tea on Your Face to Achieve Prettier Skin Step 13 Version 3.jpg
    • If you start feeling hot, it’s okay to stop the treatment early.
    • It’s best to set a time for 5-10 minutes so that you know exactly how long you’ve been steaming your face.
  6. Rinse your face with cool water to remove impurities. After your steam, go to the sink and turn on the cold water. Then, splash the cool water over your face to remove any sweat and impurities that the steam treatment drew out.[14]

    • If you like, you can wash your face with a creamy cleanser, as well. However, this isn’t necessary.
  7. Pat your face dry with a soft, clean towel. Use the bath towel or a hand towel to lightly blot your face dry. Then, you can continue with your normal facial care routine.[15]

    • Repeat this treatment as often as once a week.

    • This mask can moisturize your skin and may nourish it when it’s stressed or sunburned.

How to Know When Your Dog is Sick

Just like their owners, dogs can become ill with anything from a minor virus to something more dangerous with serious complications. Since your pet cannot tell you what’s wrong, you should keep an eye out for certain symptoms. Always consult with your veterinarian if you ever suspect your dog may be ill.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Evaluating Your Dog’s Appearance

  1. Watch for excessive drooling or bad breath[1]. Excessive drooling or bad breath can be signs that your dog might need some teeth extracted. In order to prevent many dental problems, try to train your dog so that he allows you to brush his teeth. Look for the following symptoms in your dog that might indicate a dental problem:
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 1 Version 4.jpg
    • Watch to see if your dog is eating less.
    • Notice if your dog is sensitive to you touching his muzzle.
    • You may also visibly notice your dog having trouble chewing.[2]
  2. Listen for excessive coughing or honking. If your dog is coughing, it might not be a reason to worry. However, coughing that lasts for any longer than a twenty-four hour period might be something more serious. Get any severe coughing in your dog checked out by your veterinarian.
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 2 Version 4.jpg
    • Coughing problems can disrupt your dog’s sleep.[3]
    • Coughing in a dog can be a sign of anything from minor bronchitis to heart worms, have a professional examine your dog. [4]
  3. Pay attention to changes in your dog’s behavior. Just as humans may act differently when they don’t feel well, you may notice changes in your dog’s behavior if it’s not feeling well.[5]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 3 Version 4.jpg
    • Changes may include, but are not limited to, increase or decrease in appetite or thirst, hyperactivity or noticeably lowered energy levels.
    • If you notice changes in your dog’s behavior, visit your veterinarian.
    • If the irritation seems to relate to petting a specific spot, take note, it may be where your dog is injured or sick.[6]
  4. Keep a close eye on any sores or lumps. Dogs can develop ingrown hairs, cysts, and other skin blemishes, so not every small lump or bump is an immediate cause for concern. However, the following symptoms should be seen by a professional.[7]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 4 Version 4.jpg
    • Lumps growing in size.[8]
    • Lumps becoming deeply attached to tissues.
    • Oozing or bleeding sores.
  5. Take your dog’s temperature. Canine’s can run fevers just like humans can. If your dog has a fever, especially in conjunction with other symptoms, visit your vet as soon as you are able.[9]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 5 Version 4.jpg
    • A temperature of 103 is high. Take your dog to the vet as soon as possible.
    • A temperature of 104.5 requires immediate medical attention.[10]

[Edit]Evaluating Your Dog’s Diet

  1. Watch for excessive drinking. Monitor the amount of water your dog drinks daily. If you notice any big changes in this amount, take note. Drinking too much or too little can indicate a problem that requires veterinary attention.[11]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 6 Version 4.jpg
    • Rule out everyday reasons such as strenuous play or a hot day.
    • If you notice your dog drinking much more than normal for a consecutive week, see your vet.
  2. Track your dog’s appetite. Changes in appetite, especially those that lead to weight loss or gain, can indicate illness.[12] [13]Unexpected weight loss or gain should always be met with a trip to the vet.
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 7 Version 3.jpg
    • In the short term, loss of appetite for your dog can be a sign of fever, pain, or stress, as well as many other possible reasons.
    • If the loss of appetite is combined with any other noticeable symptoms, you should see a vet immediately.[14]
  3. Pay special attention to digestive upsets. Vomiting or diarrhea is a reason for concern with your dog.[15] These symptoms can be a sign of anything from swallowing a sharp object to ulcers to parasites.[16]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 8 Version 3.jpg
    • Single instances of vomiting or diarrhea are not necessarily a cause for concern.
    • Repeated instances,especially lasting more than twenty-four hours,require a vet.[17]
    • Blood, in either vomit or diarrhea, can be a serious symptom and needs treatment as soon as possible.[18]

[Edit]Evaluating Your Dog’s Activity Level

  1. Examine your pet’s energy levels.[19] Prolonged lethargy is a strong sign that your pooch isn’t feeling well.[20] While you don’t need to worry about a tired dog after active play, keep an eye out for other signs such as decreased exercise tolerance or general weakness combined with the lethargy.[21]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 9 Version 3.jpg
    • Unusually low energy levels, over two or three days should be checked with a vet.
    • Lethargy, in combination with other symptoms, also requires the attention of your vet.[22]
    • Extremely high levels of energy can also be a problem that needs medical attention.
  2. Pay attention to scratching. All dogs scratch fairly regularly. However, excessive scratching can be a sign of a health problem. If the scratching is excessive, don’t ignore it. Look for these possible causes or ask your veterinarian more about them:
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 10 Version 3.jpg
    • Scratching is a typical sign of fleas, ticks, or mange mites.[23]
    • Scratching can also mean endocrine or hormonal problems in your dog.[24]
    • Dogs can also suffer from allergies just like humans, which can lead to itching.[25]
    • Take your dog to the vet.
      • Most vets will examine the animal, try to reach a diagnosis or suggest tests to reach a diagnosis.
      • After testing, your vet can prescribe a course of treatment to correct the underlying problem or at least make the dog more comfortable.
  3. Look for difficulty rising or mobility issues. If your dog starts showing signs of stiffness, manifested through difficulty getting up or climbing stairs, then you should have your pet examined. [26]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 11 Version 3.jpg
    • This symptom can be a result of anything from hip dysplasia to arthritis to Lyme disease from tick-borne bacteria.
    • The earlier Lyme disease is treated, the better the prognosis, so see a vet quickly if you notice this symptom, especially in younger dogs.
  4. Watch for labored breathing. Labored breathing can indicate a problem with your dog’s respiratory system. Identifying the cause can be difficult by yourself. Bring your dog to a vet to accurately diagnose any problems with your dog’s breathing.[27]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 12 Version 3.jpg
    • Labored breathing requires urgent attention.
    • If your dog’s gums have a bluish tint, seek immediate care.
  5. Keep track of accidents. House-trained pets rarely start having accidents unless there is a problem. If your dog inexplicably begins having indoor accidents, then your vet will likely want to schedule some tests to find out the problem.[28]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 13 Version 3.jpg
    • Having accidents for a few days in a row is a good indication of a problem.
  6. Watch for major changes in urination. Changes in the frequency of your dog’s urination can be an indication of a problem. Check also for any blood or strange discolorations in your dog’s urine.[29] If you find anything unusual about your dog’s urine or urination habits, contact your veterinarian.[30]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 14 Version 3.jpg
    • Either an increase or decrease in urination can be an indication of an illness.
    • Problems with urination will may involve the kidneys or bladder stones.

[Edit]Knowing When to Seek Emergency Care

  1. Watch for non-productive retching. If your dog is trying to vomit, and cannot, this can be associated with the life-threatening condition, bloat. Get your dog to the vet immediately in order to ensure the best outcome.[31]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 15 Version 2.jpg
  2. Monitor for non-productive urination. If your dog is trying to urinate, but is unable to do so, take it to the veterinarian quickly. Inability to urinate indicates some form of blockage and can be quite serious.[32]
    Know When Your Dog is Sick Step 17.jpg
  3. Look for any weakness. If your dog is having trouble standing, is swaying, or has collapsed then you must seek care quickly. Even if your dog is tired, it will be able to stand and move. Collapsing is a definite sign that your dog needs medical attention. [33]
