The Ingredients

The Green Tea Anti-aging Face Mask is easy to make. It has three ingredients.

Green Tea,



These ingredients work together to create a super good Green Tea Anti-aging Face Mask that is very comfortable to apply and use.

Why Green Tea?

Green Tea

This is one of the most powerful ingredients for skin care.

  • It promotes DNA repair. Green tea has a powerful antioxidant called EGCG that fights DNA damage from UV rays to prevent skin cancer. Which results in the fact that it acts as a potent anti-aging ingredient that combats signs of aging when ingested or applied topically.
  • Green tea has powerful anti-inflammatory properties,  because of its high content of polyphenols called catechins. These catechins in green tea get rid of irritation, redness, and swelling.
  • The same polyphenols make Green tea a great antibacterial agent for treating acne and unclogging pores.
  • Has large amounts of Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, which promote collagen and keep skin looking young and firm. It also keeps the skin hydrated.
  • Caffeine and tannins in green tea help shrink blood vessels around the eyes, making it a miracle for treating puffy eyes and dark circles

Why Honey?

The Honey has properties which help to purify the skin:

  • Honey cleans out impurities from skin pores.
  • Honey is naturally antiseptic; it has healing and soothing properties.
  • Honey is a humectant so it moisturises, prevents wrinkles and soothes and heals dry patches.
  • Honey helps in reducing acne scarring.
  • It also has brightening properties.

Why Yogurt?

Yogurt - Lighten and Reduce Freckles

Yogurt has a lot of benefits when applied to the skin:

  • Yogurt contains lactic acid, which is an alpha hydroxyl acid and dissolves dead skin cells. This leaves skin smooth, clean and clear and lightens freckles.
  • Yogurt helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Moisturizes the skin
  • Fights acne and relieves sunburn
  • Helps to rejuvenate and soften the skin
