Here are some easy-to-make face masks that use matcha and other natural ingredients to give your skin the boost it needs.

We don’t recommend using low-quality matcha with a dull green or yellowish color when using matcha in face masks. Avoid using the highest quality ceremonial matcha, too, as intended for drinking on special occasions.

We find the best matcha to use is a high-quality culinary grade or an everyday grade. Look out for color. The greener, the better.

A few recipes by the expert- Natalia Vilas Boas-

1) Matcha + water

  • Just mix 2 tsp of matcha + A little bit of warm water. (1:1 ratio).

Seriously, that’s all you need!

Blend with a whisk until you have a thick, smooth paste. Then apply to a clean face. Leave it for 10 – 15 min, until it is completely dried. Then rinse it off.

2) Nourishing Matcha Mask

  • 2tsp matcha
  • 1 tbsp warm water
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 2tbsp ripe mashed banana

Honey works wonders on our skin, for it has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It helps heal wounds and nourishes the skin. The banana is a whole fruit in nutrients. Applied to the skin, it can also nourish, moisturize, repair, and enhances the glow.

This concoction is one of the best masks you could give to your face after a long stressful day.

3) Anti-Aging Matcha Mask

  • 2tsp matcha
  • 1tbsp lemon
  • ½ ripe avocado mashed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

The lemon is an excellent source of Vitamin C, so, just like matcha, it has excellent antioxidant properties. It can also soothe and reduce wrinkles as well as provide anti-aging benefits. It also helps even out the skin if you have blemishes.

Avocado is another fantastic fruit that has Omega3, vitamins A, D, E. So it also helps, when used with antioxidant-rich ingredients, fight signs of aging. On top of that, Olive oil can repair sun damage and premature aging.

  1. Homemade Matcha Eye Mask

Especially useful on the days you are not getting much sleep, the caffeine present on Matcha and the Rosewater will help reduce puffiness and dark eye circles.

  • 1 tsp matcha
  • 1 tsp warm water
  • 5 tbsp rose water
  • Cotton Make-up pads

Cut the pads into two semicircles. Mix the matcha with the warm water first. Once it’s fully dissolved, pour in the rose water. Add the cotton pads into the mixture and let it soak for a few seconds. Wrap them in cling film and store in the freezer.’
