Let’s talk about how matcha green tea improves the health of your skin
What is Matcha Green Tea?
Matcha green tea is actually not much different from green tea. Except for the fact that matcha has 10x more antioxidants than your regular green tea.
It includes a large number of catechins known as EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate). Catechins are natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and provide other benefits.
While green tea is harvested from tea plants that grow under the sun, matcha green tea is harvested from tea plants that are specially cultivated in the shade. Growing in the shade makes matcha green tea have a richer concentration of chlorophyll and amino acids.
Antioxidants are the body’s defence agents. These are naturally occurring chemical compounds that prevent ageing and chronic diseases. Put simply, the more you have, the better equipped your body is in the fight against infections and disease.
Chlorophyll is also a powerful detoxifier, helping to eliminate both chemicals and heavy metals from the body.

Puffiness often happens from lack of sleep or because of stress. However, the underlying reason for ‘puffiness’ is low water retention and poor circulation.
