Matcha is an excellent ingredient for the skin keeping it clear and youthful. Matcha works from both the inside out when you drink it as a green tea and from the outside in when you use it as a face mask.
Matcha is anti-bacterial and contains incredibly high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is helpful in reducing inflammation and maintaining an even skin tone. The antioxidants are also known for reducing acne and increasing skin elasticity.
Matcha face masks are so simple to make and leaves skin feeling like silk.
- 1 Teaspoon Zen Green Tea matcha
- 1 Tablespoon Greek Yogurt
- Mix together thoroughly to form a bright green paste
- Apply to face and neck and leave for 10 minutes
- Wash off to reveal brighter, tighter and glowing skin!
Note: There are so many different types of matcha face masks you can make- many customers love just honey and matcha or matcha mixed with coconut or argan oil. If your skin is dry use more of an oil based mask, if it’s got acne use honey, or if you have oily and dry skin a greek yogurt mask would work best!
