Rejuvenate Your Skin with White Tea and Matcha Tea

By sai bharath April 18, 2022

We get it; green tea tops your list. But you will be stunned to know what white tea and matcha offer. While both teas have their wellness set, what brings them together is their impeccable capability to brighten your skin and rejuvenate it. White teas are rare, making them expensive. They usually come from the first flush and are plucked quickly from the unopen buds of the tea shoots. White teas undergo minimal processing and are left to wither and dry in the sun, ensuring less oxidation. These teas are light on the stomach and have lower tannin content. High levels of flavonoids improve vascular health and help to prevent heart diseases.

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.
