You have probably heard of people putting matcha in food due to its reported health benefits and caffeine kick, but this green tea face mask is something else entirely.

While it's technically made out of food products that are entirely edible, the DIY beauty treatment is supposed to calm the skin by reducing inflammation and boosting hydration while also offering anti-aging properties with anti-oxidants and vitamins. From Lily Diamond of Kale & Caramel, the Matcha Cucumber Mint Face Mask is a homemade skin care product you can use after cleansing but before extra toning or your moisturizer step. The slightly astringent cosmetic contains chlorophyll, which oxygenates and purifies.

The green tea face mask contains matcha powder, grated cucumber and finely chopped mint.
