I can’t begin to say how good matcha and lemon juice are with fighting acne. I had a few starting a life of their own yesterday and after I applied it for 30 minutes, they were almost completely gone in the morning!
What you will need:
1 teaspoon high quality matcha (you can buy this in Asian grocery stores, health stores or online)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
(The amount can vary depending on how much you’re using!)
Put the matcha powder in a small bowl.
Add the lemon juice.
Mix and stir until it’s nice and thick, like a paste.
I really love the consistency, it feels like a cream you’d apply on your face!
Firstly, wash your face with your facial wash or soap. Then, apply the paste on all parts of your face. I left my eyes alone because I didn’t want it dirtying my glasses.
Let it sit for about an hour while you do something else. During this time, the mask will harden. I like to do an hour of treadmill while the mask is on!
Then, wash it off and feel the difference!
It was kind of hilarious when I applied this mask and walked downstairs, my husband stares at my face and goes: ARGHGHGHGHLKJDFHHGHGHG@@@@!!! I reply with: You’re just a green hater, aren’t you? What did green people ever do to deserve this!!! (Then realises that green people don’t exist!)
