Green TeaGreen tea face mask

I make myself a very basic face mask using green tea powder because green tea is high in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that when applied topically can be anti-inflammatory, protect against skin cancer, and reduce or prevent signs of aging. It is a great healing treatment for all kinds of skin types and issues.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp green tea powder (I use Matcha Matsu from David’s Tea)
  • Water or carrier oil
    • For oiler skin, you can use water, in which case this mask dries on your face like a clay mask.
    • For dryer skin, use a carrier oil of your choice. I personally really like rosehip oil as it is anti-inflammatory and known for anti-aging. The type of oil can be varied based on what you prefer – check out more info on different carrier oils here.
  • 1-2 drops (no more than this!) essential oil (optional)
    • You can choose oils that address specific skin issues – check out more info here.

Directions:

  1. Place green tea powder in very small bowl and mix to a paste with either water or oil.
  2. Add essential oils if desired.
  3. Apply to clean, dry skin after washing and exfoliating.
  4. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then gently rinse off.
