3 green tea recipes for beautiful skin
Matcha Green Tea Face Mask
As sourced on The Best Organic Skincare, this matcha green tea mask is full of antioxidants, natural antibiotics, vitamins, and detoxifying agents.
¼ teaspoon matcha powder
1 tablespoon aloe vera, fresh or bottled (helps the nutrients penetrate deep into the skin)
Combine ingredients then combine directly to a clean, dried, face with fingertips avoiding the eye area. Leave for 5-10 minutes then rinse. Apply a natural moisturiser directly after.
Anti-Aging Green Tea and Yoghurt Mask
The polyphenols in green tea help to neutralise free radicals that cause skin damage and accelerate premature signs of aging. This mask might be beneficial to tighten your skin and reduce the appearance of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
3 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt/natural yoghurt
1 tablespoon of green tea leaves or ¼ teaspoon of matcha green tea powder
Combine all ingredients, then apply directly to your face and neck. Allow it to rest for 20 minutes before rinsing off. Use this recipe weekly or twice weekly for an anti-aging boost to your complexion.
Green Tea Skin Toner
This natural skin toner can help to reduce the appearance of large pores, draw out impurities, help to hydrate your skin and give your skin a natural glow.
