Our newest product, the Matcha Mud Mask, contains matcha powder harvested locally in Hawaii! Green tea has such great benefits, due to its chlorophyll content and amino acids. Keep reading to learn more of how matcha doesn't only belong in your tea cup:
The Benefits of Matcha
Matcha can help you gently exfoliate and remove dead skin from your skin, giving you a renewed and fresh look, and making it easier for your pores to remain free of debris and excess oil. It also helps to increase your skin's elasticity. Due to the chlorophyll content in matcha, which is a natural anti-bacterial, not only does it help remove excess oils from your skin, it also helps eliminate the bacteria which cause bacterial acne.
The caffeine and tannins in matcha can help reduce puffy eyes and dark circles, giving you a refreshed look! The vitamins found in matcha also help to cleanse and detox your skin in a natural and gentle way, leaving your skin renewed without over-drying!
But before we explain how simple it is to create your own matcha skincare products, let’s go back to that anti-inflammatory property of matcha tea. Matcha contains EGCG, a powerful antioxidant that has been known to treat a wide array of skin irritants and diseases that cause redness and inflammation. Its soothing properties can help reduce redness from acne and other skin conditions.
Who Should Use The Matcha Mud Mask?
Matcha green tea powder is great for all skin types! Our mud mask also contains coconut milk, which helps to make it ultra smoothing and moisturizing. The individual who would benefit most from the face mask would be acne prone or dry skin, since this mask isn't as constricting as our Cocoa Clay Mask! If you even have combo skin, this mask is great since the tannins of the matcha will help to minimize pores, which will help to decrease oil production.
Matcha is known to help increase skin elasticity and protects the skin against free radicals, leaving your skin looking as beautiful as ever! So, whether you're in your teens, 30's or 60's, this mud mask is a great choice.
Not only is this mask beneficial for keeping my skin tight and clean but it also moisturizes it so well. I’m from Hawai’i. It’s always so humid where I live. I came on a trip to California and the weather is so much more drying to my skin and I’m not used to it. I did my mask while I was there and It was so helpful! Love it!
I think it is amazing how beneficial matcha is for the external of the body! Learning all of the qualities it holds is something everyone should do. It makes me want to use the matcha mask even more due to my dry skin. I am so excited to see how it helps my skin improve!
