In order for your skin to look and feel at its best it needs care and nutrients. The topical products you chose to apply on your skin will be absorbed into the skin and the body so it makes sense to use natural ingredients.
Your skin is also a detoxification organ, so taking care of it is necessary not just for glowing skin but your overall health as well.
Green tea is an amazing source of polyphenols (catechines and flavonoids) which are powerful antioxidants. You probably know about the amazing benefits of green tea and have heard about cultures all over the world who have used green tea for centuries, and for good reasons.
Matcha is a soft green powder created from stone ground green tea leaves, therefore, has an increased nutrition content as well as its ECGC antioxidant content shown to be 137 times higher than that found in green tea 1.
For problematic skin like rosacea or redness, acne, and uneven skin tone this mask does wonders. Matcha is anti-inflammatory containing high amounts of antioxidants and the green pigment contained will also visually calm the irritation on your face creating a more even tone.
If you cannot eat what you apply to your skin (i.e. commercially bought creams and masks) then it is most likely a good indication that you should not apply it to your skin either.
If you have problematic skin like rosacea or redness on face, acne, and uneven skin tone then you definitely want to try this mask. Matcha is anti-inflammatory containing high amounts of antioxidants and the green pigment contained will also visually calm the irritation on your face creating a more even tone.
Antioxidants are the most powerful of all weapons against ageing. If you want young, glowing skin then you definitely need to start applying matcha to your face as it will help with keeping your skin look and feel fabulous.

Coconut milk will moisturize and hydrate your skin as it is mostly lauric acid and makes about 50% of the fat in coconuts. It also provides minerals and vitamins required for a healthy skin. The lauric acid also has antibacterial properties, making it beneficial for skin issues like acne.
The best and easiest way to make this mask is to use some of the mixture when you make yourself a cup of matcha tea or latte to drink, just add in coconut milk instead of water and whisk. You can take some of the mixture straight from the whisk and apply to your face.
- Leave on for 10 minutes and remove with warm water.
- To wipe the water off your face use a paper towel as it may temporary stain.
- To eliminate the residue or ensure no staining, use a natural toner.
- Apply your favourite moisturizer, if needed.
If you only want to make the mask and not the latte, use the measurements and directions below.
Please note: as with all masks, you want to make sure you do this at a time when you know you will not need to leave the house or put make up on. Allow your skin to benefit from the application of matcha for as long as possible and do not cover the pores with foundation or other products. If this is your first time using matcha and coconut milk mask then please make sure to test a small amount on one side of the face such as the jaw bone, making sure you do not have any sensitivities or allergies to the products you are applying.
Once you are finished, make yourself a nice cup of matcha latte and enjoy.
