Oatmeal works to soothe the skin, reduce redness and lock in moisture, while matcha adds a powerful punch of antioxidants and polyphenols to give this mask a powerful deep cleanse effect.

Vitamin E, which you can find in avocados, may help to reduce fine lines and give your skin a fuller, firmer appearance.

Vitamin A, which is in eggs, can help address acne, improve fine lines and reduce sun damage. Just to name a few!

So go ahead and have fun in your kitchen and give this matcha face mask a go. Your skin will thank you for it!
