What’s more, it is brightening and good for circulation and oxygenation of the skin cells. Matcha also helps fight acne by killing the acne-causing bacteria. You can try using this skin care recipe recommended by beauty blogger Anuradha Goswami that uses matcha as the star ingredient.

Matcha face mask
This mask can be perfect if you have oily, from normal to combination skin. You will need one teaspoon matcha powder and two teaspoons aloe vera gel. To prepare this, combine the matcha with aloe vera in a small bowl. You can add a little more aloe vera gel depending on what consistency you prefer but 1:2 ratio can just be perfect. Then apply the mask to your face, let it settle for 15 minutes before you rinse it with lukewarm water. You can also make these 3 hydrating face masks at home.

All you need to do is add matcha powder in plain water and use it for steam while letting your skin take in some polyphenols and flavonoids.All you need is 2 glasses of boiling water poured into a deep vessel. Drop in 2-3 teaspoons of matcha powder or 2-3 tablespoons of matcha leaves if you have some at home. Now take a towel, cover your head and enjoy the steam.
