Chloe's Skin Tips: Matcha Green Tea Mask


My name is Chloe and I’m a Customer Service Representative at Live Superfoods. I was born in Lyon, France. When I was very young, I was blond with brown eyes and a light skin tone. I was not especially pretty - never won a beauty contest nor attempted one! Then, as I grew up, my hair became darker and so did my skin. It might have been my father’s Italian heritage kicking in. At 26 I was living south of France on the “Cote d’Azur,” where I was taking advantage of my deep complexion. I then moved to Florida in 2003, where I was at the beach every evening and weekends with moderate sun protection. Now I live in Bend, OR and am paying for all that sun exposure!

I'm a chameleon; I can have a white complexion in winter and be 4-5 shades darker in the summer. For the last couple of years I have been doing, once a week at home, glycolic peels and derma rolling. I might be doing the right thing, because waitresses often asked me for my ID at the restaurant when I order a glass of wine. I do have good results, but my skin can get red and irritated sometimes.

I use Dr. Mercola Royal Matcha Green Tea internally and externally. Stone ground and completely unfermented, this gorgeous jade powder uses whole nutrient-rich tea leaves and has a smooth, non-bitter taste. It contains high-potency antioxidants like EGCG, the most powerful catechin found in tea.

I prefer Matcha over standard green tea for several reasons. Unlike typical green teas, it's gentle on my stomach. I love that it doesn't taste too strong, and offers a kick of caffeine without the crash.

Simply mix 1/2 tsp. into a cup of hot water and enjoy.

As far as Matcha for skincare, I'm beyond impressed. In just 15 minutes, Matcha can help soothe and cool the skin after glycolic peels and derma rolling. This mask is also great for sunburned and wind-chapped skin.

Chloe's Matcha Mask:

  • Mix Matcha powder with lukewarm water to form a thin paste
  • Leave on for 15 minutes & gently wash off

*If you skin needs a little extra comfort, mix some honey into the mask. Honey is a humectant, so it attracts and retains moisture in the skin. It also keeps the mask moist on the face, so it's easier to wear longer.

See you in March for the next installment of this series!
