DIY Matcha Face Mask Recipe Tutorial

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the amazing benefits matcha green tea has to offer your skin and so this article title hasn’t left you confused and thinking I’m crazy for suggesting you use green tea as a face mask.

In short; the almost abundant supply of antioxidants in matcha green tea helps to protect you against inflammation in the body, these antioxidants also help eliminate acne and other types of skin imperfections and roughness. The strong presence of the EGCG antioxidant in matcha slows cell degeneration to slow down the aging process, promoting smooth, tight skin that retains moisture and natural, smooth color tones.

Now let’s jump right into this!

The great thing about a matcha face mask is that it’s so simple and quick to make.

With only 2-3 ingredients you can whip up a matcha face mask in seconds.

Because of how shelf stable the ingredients are – you can even create a pot of your matcha face mask to store for future use.

How often should you use a matcha face mask?

I recommend using this as a weekly treatment but using it more often than that is not going to cause any problems.

In this Matcha Green Tea face mask recipe i’m going to show you 3 different methods based on skin types so that anyone can use this for amazingly youthful results.

Face Mask #1 (my personal favourite)

To create a perfect consistency – i’ve found that using honey as the base to mix Matcha into works really well and this is great for both oily to normal and dry skin.

Using honey and matcha results in a smooth, nourishing and moisturising face mask. Best of all is that the ingredients are completely natural and no chemicals are used in this matcha face mask.

Ingredients:

The directions below are for a single use.

Great for both oily to normal and dry skin.

– 1 teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea Powder

– 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of raw honey agave

Instructions:

Put the Matcha Green Tea Powder into a small bowl and mix in the honey to form a paste. Depending on the consistency of your honey, you may need slightly more or less.

Spread the honey over your face and neck using circular movements. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and remove with a warm, wet washcloth.

Face Mask #2 (best for oily to normal skin)

The directions below are for a single use.

Best for Oily to Normal Skin.

– 1 teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea Powder

– Few drops of Water or Aloe Vera Gel

Put the Matcha Green Tea Powder into a small bowl and slowly add water or aloe vera gel. You don’t want to add too much liquid or it won’t stay on your face. Aim for a thicker consistency than thinner.

Apply to clean face and leave on 15 minutes or longer if desired and remove with a warm, wet washcloth.

Face Mask #3 (best for dry skin)

The directions below are for a single use.

Best for Dry Skin.

– 2 tsp. Matcha Green Tea

– 1/2 tsp. Organic Coconut Oil

– Water

Put the Matcha Green Tea Powder into a small bowl. Add coconut oil and a few drops of water.  Mix until a thick paste forms. Add only enough water to make it spreadable. Avoid adding too much water or it will not stay on your face.

Apply to clean face and leave on 15 minutes or longer if desired and remove with a warm, wet washcloth.

There you have it! Your very own natural face mask.
