If you’re looking for a simple face mask that offers potent anti-oxidant, anti-aging, and rejuvenating benefits for tired skin then you need to try this matcha rose face mask! It’s softening, brightening and smells great with the relaxing aroma of rose which makes it a wonderful pick-me-up for tired skin.
I love wearing this mask in the bath while using homemade geranium and tangerine bath bombs, candles, and a nice glass of wine. The combo is super relaxing and just what I need after a long day.
Here’s how to make it:
Loving Preparation- Matcha Rose Face Mask
Mix all of the ingredients together and store in a little jar (I like to make a larger batch so it’s ready when I need it most). When you’re ready for a rejuvenating mask experience, spoon out a small amount of matcha rose mask, about the size of a nickel, and add water to it a few drops at a time to find the right consistency. If it’s too runny, just add a little more of the mask.
Apply it all over the face avoiding the eye area and let sit for 10-20 minutes until completely dry. I enjoy using a fan brush to apply all my face mask recipes because it makes it easy to apply an even layer.
Rinse with cool water, pat dry then apply your favorite moisturizer. (I like this one)
This mask can be used 2-3 times per week.
Rejuvenating Matcha Rose Face Mask Benefits
Not only can you reap the benefits of green tea from the inside, but the outside too! Its high anti-oxidant content fights against UV radiation and other free radicals giving our skin a youthful glow.
Unlike traditional green tea, matcha tea contains much higher amounts of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals too so it’s the perfect choice to help replenish nutrients.
Another great quality of match tea is its ability to detox the skin. Ever wonder why match tea is such a beautiful vibrant green? That’s due to its chlorophyll content, a powerful detoxifier capable of removing toxins and impurities from the skin.
Oatmeal is one of the best and cheapest ways to moisturize and smooth the skin. When mixed with water, oatmeal can turn dry flaky skin baby soft. It also treats rashes, scales, peeling, and itchy skin because of its polysaccharide and beta-glucan content, both of which deeply moisturize and protect the skin.
Oatmeal also balances uneven skin tone so it’s great for those who suffer from hyperpigmentation.
If you have acne prone skin with clogged pores oatmeal is perfect to use a mild “soap” of sorts. It lifts dead skin cells and can remove dirt and impurities from pores without causing irritation or redness, leaving pores smaller and less noticeable.
You can also soak oatmeal in water and then strain it. The “milk” leftover can be used as a wonderful toner too!
Rose Essential Oil
Rose essential oil is an excellent multi-purpose oil that is idea for all skin types, but especially for dry skin.
It is used for:
• Minimizing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation
• Moisturizing dry, chapped skin
• As a wonderful skin toner for those with oily skin types. It’s also great for sensitive skin
• Can be added to homemade toner to control oil
• Is high in anti-oxidants and vitamin C
• Treats skin ailments like eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea
French Green Clay
It’s no secret that French Green Clay is wonderful for removing impurities from the skin like oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. It tightens pores making them look smaller and will help keep your skin from producing too much oil.
I almost always add a nice facial clay to mask recipes because I have oily skin but if you have dry skin, feel free to use white kaolin clay instead or omit it all together.
