Matcha Green Tea Powder Facial

Matcha Powder Facial:
1 tbsp. matcha green tea powder
1-2 tbsp. of water
Optional:  Organic virgin coconut oil
OR Raw honey.

Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder purchased from:  Whole Foods Market

Mix until it creates a thick paste and apply it  all over the face.  Let the mask sit on your
face until it is completely dried.  I prefer to leave my mask on for 45 minutes to an
hour to really let my skin absorb the benefits. Wash your face off in a gentle motion and
pat dry with a clean towel.  You will notice that your skin will be slightly green after washing
off the mask, however this is easily removed with organic virgin coconut oil.

- Matcha Green Tea Powder Benefits -
- Rich in L-theanine:  An amino acid that is found in green tea and
enhances serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain which
improves your overall mood, memory and concentration.
- Matcha is the highest quality of green tea available loaded with
nutrients, minerals and antioxidants.
- It contains high amounts of Catechin which contain organic compounds.
  One Catechin in particular is Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCg) which
is a potent antioxidant and is said to prevent cancer.
- Increases energy levels without the side effects of stimulants
and has a calming effect on the body.
- It contains powerful antioxidants such as flavonoids, and has approximately
100 milligrams of antioxidants per gram.
- Improves overall metabolic rate and helps to decrease body fat.
- Lowers risk of cardiovascular disease and decreases LDL cholesterol.
- Stabilizes blood sugar levels and rids the body of dioxins, heavy metals,
and hormone disruptor's due to the chlorophyll in Matcha.

Recommendations for Matcha:
-- Add one teaspoon of Organic Matcha to your smoothies or juices.-- Use it as a facial mask and let your skin absorb all the nutrients and antioxidants.-- Matcha powder tea.  

~ I would recommend using organic Matcha to get the full  benefits of this
potent green tea and it will not contain any artificial fertilizers or herbicides.


  1. Love it! Everyone is always drinking it.. But for those who aren't a fan of the taste this mask idea is awesome. You get the benefits and a spa day. Great stuff :)

  2. Exactly! It's pretty versatile and it has so many antioxidants that the skin will benefit from so I use it mainly for facial masks. I do sprinkle it in smoothies or my yoghurt from time to time as well. Thank you!!
