More and more, beauty and skincare are becoming as much about what you put into your body as what you put on it. First, there was coffee, which is a great body scrub as well as most people’s go-to morning drink. Then came charcoal, which I ingest nightly in the form of pills, drink in Dirty Lemon Detox, and smear on my face to decongest my pores. For the past few years, the general consensus has been that your insides and outsides need to have a symbiotic relationship. You are what you eat, and now what you eat can also be what you use in your beauty regimen!
Lately, I’m seeing my favorite coffee substitute, matcha, becoming the newest beauty phenomenon, popping up in products ranging from skincare to nail polish! It makes sense: matcha is finely-milled green tea, known for being an anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, and rich in antioxidants: one cup of matcha is equal in benefits to ten cups of regular green tea!
I drink matcha every day, but now I’m excited to see it conquer the beauty world!
