Anti-Stress Matcha Green Tea Face Mask
We all love drinking matcha green tea for its health benefits, but did you know matcha green tea is also an awesome face mask?
Product Claim: Unwind from the stress by treating skin to a much needed respite with this nutrient rich mask. Matcha green tea and volcanic ash help replenish minerals and antioxidants while purging clogged pores.
Consistency/Application: Mix the Matcha Green Tea face mask powder and water until you reach a chunky to lumpy consistency. Apply the mask using a face mask brush or a similarly shaped large foundation brush to create an even layer all over the face. You may also liberally spread the clay mask down your neck line as well. Relax and leave the clay mask on for about 20 to 30 minutes. You will feel a tingly, pulsating sensation on your skin; this is the clay paste at work, making your skin contract while it absorbs the minerals. At the 15 minute mark, the clay mask will start to dry. Rinse off the mask just before the clay mask starts to flake into a hard shell, don’t wait for it to completely dry. You can rinse the clay mask off by using water. You may also try doing it spa style by rinsing it gently with warm water and use a facial sponge to remove the mask. As you wipe away the mask, it also helps exfoliate the skin leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.
Overall Effect: Matcha is an excellent ingredient for the skin as well. The same properties that make it beneficial for drinking are great for the skin, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is helpful in reducing inflammation and evening skin tone. The antioxidants may also be helpful for reducing acne and increasing skin elasticity.
My Take on the Product: The smell was so amazing, The mask was easy to apply with my fingers and upon application, within seconds, I could instantly feel the effects. I felt a cooling sensation as I waited the 5 to 10 minutes and that’s when I knew it was working. Despite, the very “gentle” exfoliation when washing, I felt a dramatic improvement in my skin texture and tone. It was brighter, tighter and feels so clean.
Overall Thoughts: Overall, I’m loving this mask. I recommend this for anyone trying to clear or refresh their skin and protect it from pollution. It’s truly an amazing mask, I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone and I can’t wait to see the results with repeated use.
