Enjoy matcha's vibrancy from the inside and out!
A beautiful collaboration using Mizuba's pure Uji-direct matcha green tea and natural skincare guru URB Apothecary's wisdom brings you the lavender matcha mask.
Words From URB:
"Ground lavender and organic mizuba matcha soothe and brighten skin with their anti-oxidant properties. French green and kaolin clays gently detox skin by pulling impurities from pores. Spinach and cucumber powders deliver skin-nourishing vitamins, minerals, and toning/astringent properties.
With regular use (1-2 times a week) this mask can brighten dull skin, reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines, and aid in soothing tired and problematic skin."
HOW TO USE
-Gradually add warm liquid - we prefer to brew loose leaf green tea - (purified water, hydrosol etc. Warm liquid helps activate herbal powders) to 1 teaspoon of mask powder, mixing until a smooth consistency is achieved.
-Spread a thin layer over your face. Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
-Rinse off with warm water and cloth.
-Follow with URB Apothecary toner and moisturizer.
This mask increases blood flow to the skin, some redness may occur, this is normal and will dissipate in 20-30 minutes.
Why we're excited about the ingredients:
CUCUMBER PEEL EXTRACT is known for its anti-inflammatory and skin tightening properties, rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes essential for strong cell growth and repair. It is a natural source of powerful antioxidants and acts as an astringent skin toner, revitalizing stressed and tired skin, leaving it refreshed and radiant.
MATCHA GREEN TEA's potent antioxidant properties make it incredibly helpful in reducing inflammation and evening skin tone. The antioxidants may also be helpful for reducing acne and increasing skin elasticity. We use organic Mizuba Culinary matcha in this mask.
GERANIUM ESSENTIAL OIL helps balance sebum production, treat acne, reduce inflammation, alleviate anxiety and balance hormones.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT is a rich source of anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E. It is said to help repair the effects of aging and environmental factors. The active constituents in Green Tea are the Catechin - Polyphenols which are potent antioxidants.
LAVENDER FLOWER POWDERdelivers nourishing soothing properties to the skin, calming angry inflamed skin.
SPINACH LEAF POWDER is full of vitamin C and contains other essential compounds, such as carotene and lutein; both help improve skin elasticity.
FRENCH GREEN CLAY has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin. French Green clay is great for helping to clear occasional skin blemishes. Green clay owes its coloration to two very important factors: iron oxide and decomposed plant matter.
