The Gold Matcha Firming Mask
April 2, 2017
Kristin Petrovich, creator of Själ Skincare, designed the Gold Matcha Firming Mask to hydrate skin while fighting the negative effects of UV radiation—which makes it the ideal treatment for upcoming summer travels. The healing benefits are thanks to mask’s hero ingredient, matcha, which is filled with powerful antioxidants.
All; use once per week, or as needed.
Tones, firms, and leaves skin glowing
What you’ll need:
- • ½ teaspoon matcha
- • ½ teaspoon gold colloidal
- • 1/8 teaspoon copper colloidal (optional)
- • ½ teaspoon raw organic honey or organic honey
In a small glass or ceramic bowl, combine the matcha, colloidal(s), and honey, mixing with a wooden spoon.
How to apply:
On cleansed skin, gently smooth a thick layer of the mask over the neck and face, avoiding the eye area. Allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse off the mask with warm water or remove it with a damp soft cloth. Gently pat your face dry.
Behind the scenes: Matcha
Matcha is a powder made entirely of ground green tea leaves. With typical green tea preparation, you steep the tea leaves in hot water, infusing the water and then discarding the leaves. But with matcha, you are consuming—or applying, as the case may be—the entire tea leaf and therefore ingesting or absorbing far more of its powerful antioxidant properties. Just be careful to look for pure matcha powder. Because matcha has a strong, grassy taste that some people find too strong, it often comes premixed with sugar or other sweeteners.
