Since tea has so many health benefits, I not only drink it, but I also use it as part of my daily beauty treatments. I've had many wonderful facials using different types of teas. Matcha, especially makes a great mask since it's already made into a fine powder. All you do is add a little water, much in the same way you'd make it for consuming.
The only difference is the consistency. To use Matcha as a mask, make it thicker than what you would for drinking. I use 1 tablespoon of Matcha and slowly add water a few drops at a time, until it forms into a paste. Then I paint my face with the paste using a make-up brush. Feel free to apply it with your fingers instead. Allow the mask to set for about 20 minutes.

Then rinse off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry. That's it! Your face will glow and look refreshed. The miracles of looking green for a while!
