Simple homemade Green Tea face mask recipes that require only a few ingredients and have stellar benefits.

Professional beauticians use a handful of “superfoods” to maintain the clients’ skin healthy, smooth, and glowing. One of these certainly is green tea, but the beauticians don’t share this knowledge for obvious reasons.

Although it’s underrated and often overshadowed by the likes of aloe vera, honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice, green tea offers no fewer skin benefits than its more popular counterparts. Instead, the beloved drink is more known for its potent antioxidant properties. But only a few people are aware of its skin-soothing and gentle exfoliating properties plus vitamins and minerals that it contains.

The next time you have the urge to treat your face to something incredibly nourishing, dig into your pantry and make your own DIY green tea mask.

DIY Green Tea Face Mask Recipes

Here are five DIY green tea mask recipes. Choose the one depending upon your specific need and the skin type you have.

Nourishing Matcha And Honey Mask

Matcha is a famous subclass of green tea that comes from Japan. Its name means “powdered tea,” and because of its texture, it’s an ideal candidate for inclusion in the DIY beauty arsenal. For example, using matcha in skincare is an ancient tradition and probably the secret to getting “mochi skin,” a major Japanese trend.

The matcha honey mask recipe is simple and super easy. Just mix a tablespoon of matcha powder, a teaspoon of honey, and a pinch of cinnamon thoroughly. Add sufficient hot water to the mixture to make a goopy mask-like consistency. Let your mask cool completely, apply to skin. Allow the mask to sit for twenty minutes, and then rinse.

Brightening Green Tea and Lemon Mask – The glow-inducing elixir

Adding lemon juice to topical green tea concoction provides a brightening effect on the skin because of the vitamin C in lemon.

You will need:

(i) Green tea: Half a cup

(ii) Rice flour: Four tablespoons

(iii) Lemon juice: One teaspoon

(iv) Baking soda: A pinch

Method

  1. First brew half a cup of green tea with one bag – to make it extra strong.
  2. Once the green tea is brewed, pour it tablespoon by tablespoon over the four tablespoons of rice flour, continuously stirring until you get a thick, goopy consistency. Probably, you’ll use approximately three tablespoons of green tea.
  3. Add and mix well about a teaspoon of lemon juice and a pinch of baking soda for some fizziness.
  4. Let the elixir cool, and then apply to your skin, leaving it on for fifteen minutes. Rinse it off.

Hydrating Yogurt Mask for Dry Skin

The presence of vitamin E, a moisture-packed powerful ingredient, bestows green tea with much-revered humectant (helps retain moisture) and emollient (softens dry, rough, flakey skin) properties. When combined with yogurt, though, another known and admired moisture-locker, green tea is empowered with twice the hydrating potential. In addition, the colloidal oatmeal in this DIY mask recipe helps form and maintain the skin’s protective barrier.

Method:

Simply mix one tablespoon of colloidal oatmeal, two tablespoons of yogurt, and one teaspoon of matcha powder thoroughly. Apply to your face and leave to penetrate for 15 minutes before rinsing clean.

Exfoliating Egg and Oat Mask

The presence of fatty egg yolks in this homemade mask help to nourish skin and lock in moisture, while sugar and rolled oats work as gentle exfoliators.

You will need:

(i) Green tea: Three bags

(ii) Granulated sugar: One teaspoon

(iii) Egg yolks: Two

(iv) Water: One teaspoon

(v)  Rolled oats: As needed

Method

In this recipe, you don’t need to brew the tea first. —Simply empty the tea bags into a bowl, add about one teaspoon of granulated sugar, egg yolks, and a dash of water. Whisk the ingredients well. Now add enough rolled oats to thicken the concoction.  Stir the mixture well again.

When applying the mask, make sure it doesn’t come into contact with your mouth. Ingesting raw egg can cause food poisoning. Allow the mask to sit on your skin for about fifteen minutes, and then rinse it off.

Detoxifying Clay and Lemongrass Mask

In this recipe, green tea works as an adjutant to bentonite clay. The natural clay is a classic cleansing mask ingredient, well known for its ability to absorb the dirt, grime, and oils that often cause acne. Here’s how to make it more potent with even more beneficial ingredients.

You will need:

(i) Matcha powder: Half a teaspoon

(ii) Bentonite clay: Half a teaspoon

(iii) Honey: 2 teaspoons

(iv) Witch hazel: Two teaspoons

(v) Lemongrass essential oil: 3 drops

Method

  1. Mix well all the ingredients together. Add more liquid ingredients for a runnier consistency or more bentonite clay for thickness.
  2. Apply the mask evenly to the face, avoiding the mouth and eyes.
  3. Leave the mask on for about twenty minutes.
  4. While gently buffing your skin, rinse it off.

Caution

Make sure you buy witch hazel that is not distilled with alcohol. Alcohol can be harsh on some skin types and can be harmful to waterways once rinsed.
