You may have heard of the amazing health benefits of consuming matcha, but did you know that it can be highly beneficial for your skin too? Having a cup of your matcha infused smoothie or tea is super healthy and can benefit your skin, but matcha can also be used topically for some more targeted skincare action. We say this because the skin enhancing properties matcha has to offer is too good to reserve it for just tea. Here are all the skincare benefits matcha has to offer explaining the reason why it’s the next best power ingredient in the skincare industry.

What Is Matcha?

Matcha comes in powder form as it is created by crushing naturally dried leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, also known as green tea leaves. Matcha is a high-grade green tea powder that is commonly used to make a warm green tea beverage in which the powder is whisked into hot water (rather than steeped) to form a frothy drink. It is widely used in east Asia and is now a popular ingredient for healthy beverages across the globe.

Radical Rejuvenation

Loaded with antioxidants, matcha offers skin protection from free radical damage. It promotes smoother skin thanks to its cell rejuvenation properties and ability to prevent cell damage. 

Sun Energy 

It is a rich source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps photosynthesis in plants to transform sunlight into energy. But, chlorophyll when used for the skin provides protection from UV damage and sunspots. Chlorophyll is also said to help stop photo-ageing and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

Acne Terminator

Matcha has antibacterial and antibiotic properties that help to treat acne and other skin inflammation. Using matcha on your skin will help soothe skin and curb acne from forming.

Skin Reviver

Matcha is also touted to reduce puffiness and reduce the appearance of dark circles. Thanks to its rich vitamin K content, it improves blood circulation which in turn takes care of puffiness and dark under-eye areas. 

Skincare Products Infused With Matcha

A super absorbing matcha clay mask that draws out impurities is how we’d describe The Body Shop Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask. It also makes skin feel refreshed and invigorated after every use.

Detoxify From Head To Toe

An antioxidant-rich soothing shower gel, Body Cupid Matcha Green Tea Shower Gel is gentle on the skin and helps detoxify your skin with a nutrient-rich lather.
