Compared to green tea, Matcha is ten times healthier. It is grown under shade which increases the chlorophyll levels and amino acids. Matcha uses the entire leaf, which is ground to powder. It has a fresh vegetal taste. This superfood is full of antioxidants, boosts metabolism, and has also been linked to cancer prevention. Matcha is high in caffeine, and hence it is best when consumed at the beginning of the day.
Matcha tea can quench skin inflammation and prevent premature ageing. It also helps promote a clear and even complexion. On the other hand, white tea rejuvenates your skin and helps clear out acne. Drinking white tea or matcha is not the only way. You can create a DIY mask or a mist out of it and use it directly on your skin. Not sure how to make one for yourself? Worry not! Here are some recipes that you would not want to miss.
To create your matcha skin pack, regardless of your skin type, take one teaspoon of matcha powder and mix it with half a teaspoon of raw honey. Apply it on your face and neck and leave it on your skin for 15 minutes. Soak a towel in warm water and wipe your face and neck.
You can make a toner/mist or a cooling pack with white tea. To create a mist, take some tea bags and dip them in the water for some time. Once infused, transfer the water into a spray bottle and store it in the fridge. Use it as a toner or a mist to feel fresh and hydrated during any time of the day. If you have used tea bags, keep them in the fridge for 5-6 hours; once cool, you can keep them under your eyes. It helps you calm the undereye and reduce puffiness.
