Steeping Beauty: Don’t hate me because I'm beautiful!

Okay, this is not my prettiest moment and things are going to get a little messy now, but all for a good reason! 
 
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

Matcha paste.

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. 

Putting my green face on!

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!

  1. I do the same thing but I add a bit of honey to it too. My face always feel so nice afterwards :)

    1. That sounds like a good idea. I normally use honey on my face on it's own after I exfoliate with an olive oil and sugar mixture. I like keeping things as natural as possible. Thanks for sharing!
