Using Green Tea to Refresh Your Spring Skin Care Routine
Can you believe spring has finally sprung? It feels like it’s been forever, and we’re ready to celebrate! The days are finally getting longer. The grass is getting greener. Birds are chirping.
We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to do a little spring cleaning these days, especially when it comes to skincare routines.
In the winter, we’ve had to layer on extra moisturizers and serums to keep up with the dry air.
And we’re SO over it.
Spring feels like the perfect moment to lighten the load a little. Refresh our places AND our faces, you get what we mean?
You don’t have to do a lot to get the most out of your routine and balance your complexion. Sometimes it’s a matter of finding the perfect product that does exactly what you need it to do.
Imagine. An improved, even texture. Skin with more bounce than a nightclub. Skin that’s so fresh, balanced, and youthful, you’ll look like the goddess of spring herself.
That’s why we’re so in love with this life-changing (and skin-changing!) gem.
Our Green Tea Clay Mask + Scrub is the perfect addition to any routine.
Listen, we love it so much. Not only can you pronounce each ingredient listed without needing a science degree, but it’s more customizable than a Starbucks order. It’s a mask. It’s a scrub. It’s whatever you need it to be.
What Makes This Magic Work?
Green Tea Clay Mask + Scrub contains three powerful ingredients: french green clay, bentonite clay, and matcha powder.
The green color in French green clay comes from iron oxide and decomposing matter like algae and chlorophyll. It’s packed with trace minerals and can draw impurities from your pores. It aids in healing blemishes and stimulates circulation.
Bentonite clay is like nature’s sponge. If your skin is on the oily side, it’s your skin’s best friend. It absorbs dirt and oil like a dream. That means fewer breakouts. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties mean that your skin can get a much-deserved break to heal.
And of course, what would a green tea clay mask be without matcha? It’s in the name, after all! But what exactly is all the hype around his powerful ingredient?
The Japanese have known about matcha’s benefits since the 12th century, and it’s easy to see why! Matcha is a nutrient-dense antioxidant that works to balance your oily skin. It also works to stimulate collagen production to prevent premature aging.
It can do everything from protecting your skin from environmental stressors and UV radiation to reversing the damage caused by them.
It’s A Customizable Mask AND A Scrub!?
When it comes to self-care days, all you need is a little bit of liquid for this powder to do its thing.
That means water works just fine. But, if you’re going through a breakout, you can add aloe instead for its anti-inflammatory properties. Or even after a long beach day for its soothing, cooling effects.
If you’re feeling extra bougie, try adding some milk! The lactic acid feels so nourishing that when you wash it off, you’ll feel like a whole new person.
Or you can add any other mix-ins that might be beneficial to what your skin needs! Try adding floral water or honey or even all the above!
Mix your ideal mask, apply, and unveil. Your skin will thank you for its glowing appearance.
But if you’re not in the middle of #SelfCareSunday, you can add a small amount of any liquid for a quick scrub to exfoliate.
Try exfoliating once or twice a week to start to see how it treats your skin, but no more than four times. Over-exfoliating can be counterproductive. Since no two skincare routines are the same, find the sweet spot that works best for you.
