TEAOLOGY Matcha Tea Ultra-Firming Face Cream

Turns out, matcha tea has more kick than you may have thought. Not only does it taste great as the hot bevvy you’ve become accustomed to ordering at Starbucks, it’s also a bit of a miracle worker on your overwrought skin. And by overwrought we mean sun-damaged, spotted and well, aging with fine lines and crow’s feet.

Sure, you could drink your way to a clear, youthful and healthy glow, but it will take a minimum of 10 cups of the intense yet fresh flavoured brew and you’ll be spending a lot of time in the bathroom. Rubbing a little on your skin a couple of times a day seems like the easier, better, more efficient way to go, especially when there are skincare products containing the powdered green tea, like TEAOLOGY Matcha Tea Ultra-Firming Face Cream.

When added into skin care, matcha tea can help protect your skin from pollution, the environment, the sun’s harsh UVA and UVB rays, stress and more, as it is rich in antioxidants. It’s also full of chlorophyll, which if you tap into your Grade 6 science class memory bank you’ll remember is a super powerful detoxifier so will work to remove impurities, bacteria and excess sebum (a.k.a: oil) from your face, making it as equally excellent at fighting aging and hyper-pigmentation as it does eliminating adult pimples and blackheads.

Plus, it’s velvety formula feels great on your face, absorbs right away and leaves your skin looking firmer and younger than it did before. Its natural green colour also helps to conceal blemishes and brighten your skin and that’s with nary a paraben, mineral oil, phthalate, paraffin or synthetic colour.

TEAOLOGY Matcha Tea Ultra-Firming Face Cream, $69 for 50 ml, available at Murale and Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
