If you are someone who likes to create their own DIY beauty products, or you are simply looking for a way to freshen up your skin, we have just the thing for you: Matcha Japanese green tea face masks. Read on to discover the benefits of these face masks, as well as instructions on making them.
Why bother making your own face mask when you can purchase them from a number of different beauty stores and supermarkets? Well, there are in fact a number of benefits associated with homemade skincare products. Firstly, and arguably most importantly, you will know exactly what is in your products. If you pick up a random face mask from any store and look at the ingredients, it’s likely you won’t know what most of them are. So many beauty products contain chemicals, which can strip the skin of moisture and do more harm than good. When making your own face mask, you will know exactly what is going into it and it will be 100 per cent natural. This is especially important if you have psoriasis symptoms or any other skin condition, as you don’t want to put anything on your skin that will aggravate it.
You can also tailor the product to suit you, not only in terms of your skin needs, but your preferred texture and scents. You will save a huge amount of money by making your own beauty products too, and you will have a lot of fun in the process. Once you have made face masks a couple of times, you will be able to create great gifts for your friends and family, and you can even start experimenting with other DIY beauty products.
Now you know the benefits of making your own face masks, but how do you go about doing so? Let’s take a look at some of the Matcha masks you can make. If you are looking for something that will cleanse and soothe the skin, mix honey with Matcha powder and yoghurt. Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly and apply to your face. You should leave the mask on for at least 20 minutes and then rinse.
For gentle exfoliation, mix twice the amount of Matcha with honey and distilled water. By using more Matcha green tea powder than liquid, you should end up with a paste consistency. Again, leave this on your face for at least twenty minutes and then rinse it off.
You can also use sheet masks to create your face mask. To do this, you will only really need Matcha powder and water. You then soak your sheet in this mixture, and wring out any excess liquid – don’t go to town on this; you need to ensure there is still mixture on the sheet mask, but you don’t want it to dribble down your face. A minimum of twenty minutes is required again, but don’t rinse off the mask, instead simply pat the residual liquid to get rid of it.
So there you have it; different ways you can use Matcha Japanese green tea powder to create your own beauty products. Once you give it a go you will be wondering why you haven’t done so sooner.
