Whether you’re enjoying a galentines night this year, or you’ve got a full valentines date prepared, this Matcha Lime Face-Mask will get your skin ready to wherever your evening may take you
CM La Vie – Rich in antioxidants and healthy acids, coconut oil helps fighting off acne by deeply penetrating into the pores, thus removing dirt and pollution. And as if that wasn’t good enough, this incredible ingredient hydrates and lubricates the skin, promoting healing and improving elasticity.
- Matcha Powder – Also rich in antioxidants, the powder that comes from green tea leaves assists in the reduction of redness, skin elasticity and evening skin tones out.
Coconut Sugar – Filled with essential minerals (such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, vitamin B and other 16 types of amino acids), coconut sugar is most certainly not just meant for desserts! When applied to a face-mask or body scrub, it helps with removing dead skin cells, evening out its texture and softening the skin.
- Lime juice – Having several properties that promote healthy, glowing skin, lime juice is packed with vitamin C (a necessary component on the production of collagen, a type of protein that keeps the skin strong and firm). Additionally, lime juice is also considered a natural bleaching agent due to its skin lightening properties, at the same time that it helps treating open pores, acne and blemishes. What’s not to love here?
Mix CM La Vie coconut oil, matcha powder, and coconut sugar in a 1:1:1 ratio until smooth, then add a splash of lime juice at the end. Mix it once again u ntil the texture is evened out and thick enough to be applied on the skin. Once that’s done, spread it over your face and neck and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Remove with warm water and get your glam on!
