Green tea drinkers, rejoice! Now you can incorporate matcha into your beauty routine
If you are a food-obsessed beauty lover, then you’ll probably squeal over food-inspired beauty buys, which can deliver amazing benefits to your skin. And if matcha green tea happens to be one of your latest food obsessions, (high five!) you’ll be pleased to know that it is one of the main ingredients to take the beauty world by storm.
Aside from tasting really yummy in cakes and mochi ice cream treats, matcha proves to be really soothing and anti-inflammatory on your skin, as it contains both catechins and antioxidants, which are more than beneficial to your face.
Board-certified dermatologist Tsippora Shainhouse told HelloGiggles the benefits of using matcha-infused products.
"Matcha is a type of Japanese green tea, which contains strong antioxidants and catechins. Like other forms of green tea, it has a soothing, anti-inflammatory effect, and can help calm skin's redness and irritation, especially in acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin types."
