So back thousands of years ago the Geisha's were certainly onto something serious. It's now time to share their secrets! MATCHA MASKS!
In a couple of weeks time, the complete Hello Happy Skin Raw Skinwear range of products will be available online which includes a raw Face Mud, but this is another option for you to do at home with your Matcha tea powder now.
I've said it now and I will continue to say it....MATCHA IS INCREDIBLE! Drink it hot, drink it cold, eat it......it is just leaded with antioxidants galore. It helps with weightloss, cholesterol reduction, anxiety, well the list goes on. What makes me the most happy, is that drinking Matcha is such a winner for the skin! The Hello Happy Skin mantra that really tells the story, is that real happiness is when you are happy on both the inside and the outside. I believe this wholly and solely.
Matcha directly onto he skin is excellent for lightening, evening and brightening skin tone and getting rid of post-acne marks. Even if you’re happy with your skin, this mask is still a nice occasional treat to keep your skin glowing and smooth. Matcha green tea is high in polyphenols which can help protect the skin from UV damage. I’m not saying adding spoonfuls of Matcha powder to your mask will give you the excuse to skip the sunscreen! Since Matcha is high in anti-oxidants, not only does it carry anti-aging goodness into your yogurt facial mask, it also boosts it's brightening power.
Preparation and Ingredients
For this recipe,
1 teaspoon of Matcha powder(I hope its Hello Happy Skin Matcha)
1 tablespoon of yoghurt(I like Greek for this)
1 tablespoon of honey in a small bowl and that’s it!
Apply it on your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave it on for 15-20 minutes or just before the mask starts to fully dry. Wash with warm water.
Love to hear your feedback on this mask.
Stay Happy, Anna xx
