2 Ingredient Matcha Face Mask

How To Make A Matcha Face Mask?

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)! 

What you'll need: 

  • 1/2 teaspoon of Matcha Me matcha powder (our matcha is all natural 100% matcha tea leaves and our house matcha is certified organic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey 
  • Water to create desired consistency (optional) - this will depend on the consistency of your honey and whether you're making a face mask or wash! 

What to do: 

  • Mix the matcha powder and honey, and water if you're using, into a small bowl.
  • Smear it on your face (avoiding your eyes but don't worry if it gets in your mouth - yum!)
  • Leave it for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.

Tips:

  • Try replacing the water with rosewater for triple the anti-inflammatory action! 
  • If you're making a face wash, work the wash in circles all over your face like you would your regular face wash and then rinse with warm water. Why not use this time to give yourself a relaxing face massage?

Enjoy!
