Matcha is an extremely versatile powerhouse of nutrients and antioxidants, and it tastes amazing! But did you know that it has amazing anti-inflammatory properties? This is thanks to the high levels of the catechin Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and polyphenols. These anti-inflammatory properties is what makes matcha so great at fighting diseases such as arthritis, cancer, diabetes and inflammatory bowel diseases. But despite matcha's amazing internal benefits, this anti-inflammatory magic can also be used to improve skin texture, tone and overall health and appearance! Antioxidants help fight free radicals, which cause signs of ageing. Matcha is also linked to decreased sebum production which is particularly helpful in fighting acne. What can't matcha do?!
You probably already know that honey also has a rich medicinal history. Honey has been used medically for thousands of years due to its amazing antioxidant properties. Notably, it was used by the Egyptians to cover cuts and burns and even used for eye infections. So, it is a no brainer that honey and matcha go hand in hand when we want to reduce inflammation and fight free radical damage on our skin.
So, with all of these amazing benefits in mind you can make a super easy, all natural face mask using Matcha Me matcha and honey at home (that you can also use as a face wash)!
