Matcha Mask

Matcha Mask


 

So lately I have been adding matcha powder to my diet since it contains so many benefits for your body. I wanted to see if there was a way to add it to my beauty routine. Matcha powder is basically ground up green tea leaves and green tea is great for redness!

I decided to use my matcha powder and turn it into a mask and it worked out amazingly! I wish I took a before and after of my face because before I used this mask I was picking my black heads with my pore extractor so my t-zone was all red. After I used the mask it was all gone! This mask is super easy to make (it probably took me a minute) and used with ingredients you can most likely find in your kitchen.

To transform my matcha powder into a mask, I add honey, coconut oil, water and tea tree oil.  Other than redness, matcha powder is full of antioxidants and natural antibiotics.  Matcha will detox your skin as well as protect it from harmful effects. Besides it having a nice consistency, I added honey because it has antibacterial/anti-fungal benefits great for acne, it is a pore cleanser, and a natural humectant. It is optional but I added a few drops of tea tree oil to give the mask an extra kick to fight acne.

 

What You Need:

  • 1 tsp Matcha Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Water
  • 1/2 tsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • few drops of tea tree oil (optional)

Simply mix ingredients together until it is a wet paste consistency.  Apply to a clean face and leave on for about 10-15 minutes.  Rinse of with lukewarm water while massaging off with fingers.

Instead of throwing away your old roses from Valentine's Day, turn them into bath bombs! Its a fun way to re-purpose those flowers and extend the romance.

What you need

  • 4 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Tbsp Epsom Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Citric Acid
  • 2 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1/2 tsp Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp Water

Use your hands to see if ingredients clump together when you squeeze it in your hand. 

Place your rose petals at the bottom of the mold. (Make sure they are completely dry because you bath bombs will start fizzing when it touches the roses.  It is okay though if it fizzes a little they will still work!) Take your bath bomb mixture and pack it in your mold.  Let your bombs dry for several hours before using!
