Matcha Monday: Rose Matcha Latte & Facial Mask!
I decided to up my "Matcha Monday" game by also pampering myself with a homemade Rose Matcha Face Mask. This facial mask is so easy to make. Why spend tons of money on a store-bought facial mask containing who knows what kind of chemicals in it when you can make whip up this mask at home using just three beautiful ingredients? This is the perfect facial mask to wake up your skin and give it a beautiful glow. While matcha is known for energizing and detoxing us internally, the caffeine in the tea powder is wonderful for bringing circulation to the surface of our skin. The matcha acts like clay, clarifying any oily areas, but it's not drying to the skin. I love the simplicity of this mask and it's so much fun to make. I highly recommend enjoying a Rose Matcha tea latte along with it!
AND NOW FOR THE RECIPES...
Easy Rose Matcha Latte
1tsp Ceremonial Grade Matcha from Magic Hour. This is my absolute favorite matcha. Use MINDFULTEAQUEEN10 for a discount!
1/4 cup 150-degree water
3/4 plant-based milk (my favorite is Barista Oat Milk)
1-2 tablespoons Monin Rose Syrup - adjust to your taste
Rose Matcha Facial Mask
1 tablespoon Ceremonial Grade Matcha
1 drop Rose Otto essential oil. Florihana is a trusted brand from France. Of course, Rose is THE QUEEN of precious essential oils & VERY expensive so feel free to substitute Rose Geranium or this Rose & Rose Facial Oil
Filtered Water as needed to reach desired consistency
Two washcloths (that you don't mind getting green)
DONT STOP THERE...KEEP GLOWING...
You will be amazed at the glow radiating from within you and right out of your pores. I thought I looked so revived ...like I just got back from a fun vacation. Things are looking rosy indeed!
