I love spa days at home. There’s something so nice, so calming, and so refreshing about spending some time just doing face and hair masks, painting your nails, and relaxing at home. Especially during the winter months, I just love making my home my own comfy cozy oasis.
Matcha has a ton of health benefits. When you drink matcha, it’s said to improve mental clarity, remove toxins from the body, boost metabolism and energy, and encourage physical and metal calmness.
When matcha is in skincare, it can help keep your skin soft, clear, and balanced. Matcha is rich in chlorophyll which helps detoxify your skin and fight harmful toxins in order to protect your skin. Matcha is also rich in antioxidants which can help reduce inflammation and puffiness in your skin.
MATCHA BEAUTY BENEFITS:
- Helps clear skin
- Removes toxins from skin
- Helps protect skin from free radicals
- Reduces puffiness and swelling
- Lightly exfoliates skin (when being removed)
In this DIY matcha face mask, I also added in honey and olive oil.
Honey is said to help moisturize your skin, and increase “glowiness”. Honey is also a naturally antibacterial so it helps remove dirt and grit from your skin to encourage healthier and clearer skin.
Olive oil is said to be anti-aging. If you have dry skin, then you’ll love how olive oil helps moisturize and soothe your skin.
