More matcha, please! It’s no secret we’re matcha-obsessed; from salad dressing and smoothies to truffles and puddings, we’re working this superfood into our diets in every way possible. The only thing left to do? Paint our faces with it, of course. This DIY matcha face mask from beloved NYC shop CAP Beauty offers a concentrated delivery of antioxidants and other pro-health properties straight to the skin. Whip up the mask, brew up that latte and hope no one catches you geeking out this hard on your green tea fixation… 

Here at CAP, we’re big fans of all things green… but this tin of green goodness has particularly won our hearts. We turn to CAP Beauty Matcha – a beautiful ceremonial-grade, organic matcha – for beauty on the inside and out.

A matcha latte is a great replacement for coffee since matcha delivers a clear and focused energy without the jitters. And when used topically on the skin, matcha is a supercharged source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Whether drinking it up in a matcha latte or soaking it in with a DIY face mask, this green powder provides nutrition and clarity to your day. Bottoms up!
