Primary among the many benefits of matcha green tea powder is its abundance of antioxidants. When ingested, these antioxidants help combat free radicals and give your immune system a healthy boost, but matcha can also be used on the outside to help treat sun-damaged skin and reduce inflammation, not unlike the ever-soothing aloe vera.
While the high antioxidant content in matcha is lauded for a number of benefits, when it comes to skin care, the high chlorophyll content in matcha is responsible for no small part of its anti-inflammatory properties. By creating a matcha face mask, not only will users find relief from minor sunburns, but those with sensitive skin will also reap the benefit of natural UV protection (though never enough to forgo sunscreen completely). For those that suffer from Rosacea, even though it has no reported cure, matcha green tea powder face masks may help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with the condition.
However, those interested in a matcha face treatment don't need to have irritated or damaged skin. The polyphenol content in matcha can help give any skin a natural glow. Matcha face treatments lend to clearer, smoother skin that lends to that coveted dewy look.
Fortunately, a matcha face mask is no great scientific undertaking to make. One teaspoon of the green tea powder is mixed in equal part with raw honey and water is used to create a thick paste. After left on for 10 - 20 minutes then washed off, users will reap all the benefits as well as having enticingly scented skin. You can also substitute the honey for other ingredients such as coconut oil or raw sugar.
