Matcha Face Mask

by Organic Spa Magazine


Matcha Face Mask, from The Beauty of Tea

Green tea is loaded with natural antioxidants known as polyphenols, which protect the skin from premature aging.

I like to whip up this refreshing Matcha Face Mask, which hydrates dry skin, calms inflammation, and helps with oiliness and breakouts. Matcha is a form of green tea whose leaves have been stone-ground into a fine powder, making it easy to prepare, and to absorb into the body.

Mix a half teaspoon of Matcha into two ounces of plain chilled yogurt. Apply to clean skin and leave it on for five to 10 minutes. Remove with warm water and a washcloth. Enjoy with a nice cup of green tea!
