8 Matcha Skin Care Products You Haven’t Tried Yet But Should
You’ve enjoyed matcha in your morning lattes consecutively for as long as you can remember, but that’s not the only way to get your fix of the buzzy powder made from milled green tea leaves. Matcha is also making its rounds in a handful of beauty products, including sugar scrubs, face masks, toner and more. And though the antioxidant-packed ingredient isn’t the first to crossover from our cups to our skin care, we’re willing to bet it likely won’t be the last one either. Ahead, we share a few of our favorite beauty products infused with matcha.
