To say we love matcha is an understatement.
Personally, I drink a ceremonial matcha every day with an added boost of collagen, cause you know, we are all about that glow!
And aside from being a delicious, earthy, green tea, matcha is also delicious for the skin!
This week we are highlighting our detox antioxidant clay mask and one of key ingredients…you guessed it. matcha.
Let’s get into it with four powerful skin benefits of matcha.
Protects skin against pollution and sun damage. Matcha is packed with antioxidants. It is rich in catechins, powerful plant compounds that help protect the skin from free radical damage.
Helps reduce inflammation. The high amount of antioxidants also help to reduce inflammation and even skin tone and texture. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it great for soothing red, irritated, or acne-prone skin.
Helps even skin tone. Matcha also contains caffeine, giving our detox clay mask another boost. Just as caffeine can give us a little jolt post-consumption, caffeine used topically can also energize and firm up the skin.
Helps fight acne and get rid of excess oil. Remember those catechins we mentioned earlier? They are working hard in matcha. Those powerful plant compounds found in matcha also help reduce sebum production, reduce bacteria and inflammation of the skin, which can all contribute to acne.
Matcha is a great addition to help purify and detoxify the skin.
With all these benefits, it’s hard not to love this bright earthy green tea.
