I’m seeing green tea being used in beauty products more and more, but it’s also easy to make your own at home. This matcha green tea face mask requires just three ingredients and is simple to make. I love the way it smells and how it makes my skin feel afterward. It also makes you look a bit like a swamp thing, so it’s fun to scare unsuspecting people.
Matcha is high in antioxidants, so it can help with inflammation and evening skin tone. Caffeine can also help to firm and tighten skin. Honey is also anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. This mask is mildly abrasive but much gentler than coffee masks or scrubs. I have combination skin that is fairly sensitive and it has always worked well for me. Do not use it if you are allergic to tea or honey. Do not use this mask if you have sunburn or if your skin is broken.
How to Make a Matcha Green Tea Face Mask
You’ll use equal parts of all of the ingredients. If you use one teaspoon of matcha, you’ll need one teaspoon of honey and water. Keep this in mind so that you can adjust it based on how much of the mask you’ll need to make.
This mask is easy to customize and change up for different needs. On hot summer days, I’ll swap out fresh aloe vera for the honey. You can also use it as a base for a DIY sugar scrub. Although it can be a bit messy, matcha does not usually stain. Water is all you’ll need to get it out of most surfaces.
If you give my mask a try, please tag me @teaformeplease when you share on social media. I’d love to see how it works for you!
