So if you haven’t yet heard of Matcha, well you’re waaaaaay behind the times. Actually thousands of years behind the times to be closer to the truth……
Whilst the rich peeps in Japan were consuming Matcha in their tea ceremonies, so were the lucky monks. They were given Matcha to keep themselves awake and focused though huge praying and meditation seshs. Whilst that was all happening, the Baben Geishas were pasting up the Matcha with water and lathering it on their faces. I must say…. It was once I discovered the geishas and their secret beauty sleuthing, I became truly hooked. If these pristine clear faced, shining bright, porcelain dolls were doing this, I was certain that there was something seriously solid in this regime. There had to be a sneaky secret in Matcha…..
So this is where my excitement for Hello Happy Skin began. Whilst trying to get off Coffee(drinking 3 a day whilst also working for an energy drink company) I thought there must be something better I can replace the last two coffees of the day with. I wanted something that was just not going to fill the much loved coffee void, but something that actually was going to do me good. And then I found it…..the highest levels of antioxidant in a consumable item.! MATCHA sang out aloud to me, and from there I knew I had to capture this clever powder.
Hello Happy Skin’s mantra is the belief that to be truly happy, you must be happy on both the outside and inside. Where the Matcha Powder in a consumable form allows for it to ‘Get inside quick’……the skinwear range that is coming soon, means that the wonderful magic of Matcha can work from the outside in. A real ‘matcha made in heaven’, or Japan, or wherever you choose really.
Keep Happy, Anna xx
