The Magic of Matcha-Infused Face Masks

Posted by PLANT Apothecary on

Don’t let Instagram fool you, matcha isn’t a new invention. Made from ground tea leaves, this fine powder has actually been around since the 7th century. We repeat, the 7th century. So while bright green lattes continue to spill all over your scroll, it’s important to remember matcha is more than just a $9 drink. It’s a real skin saver, and our organic MATCHA Antioxidant Face Mask is about to make you a believer. 

Helps Prevent Aging 

We’ll be the first to admit we want our skin to stay forever young. Used topically, matcha stimulates elastin production and plumps fine lines and wrinkles. Botox, who? 

Battles Acne

Bacteria is a major catalyst of pesky pimples. Luckily, matcha contains a high level of polyphenols, a category of chemicals that naturally occur in plants and fight against nasty gunk. It also slows the production of oil so you can avoid clogged pores. 

Acts As a Protectant 

Matcha shields skin from UV damage and fine dust particles thanks to a powerful ingredient called chlorophyll. Additionally, it’s an avid defender against free radicals—atoms that can cause damage to cells. (No, thank you.) 

Reduces Inflammation

Fun fact: Matcha has the highest antioxidant level of any naturally occurring substance. That means with regular use, it can soothe irritated skin, target blotchy spots, and ease the severity of rosacea.
