When our fabulous beauty editor, Danielle Shine, filled me in on all of the incredible benefits of green tea and green tea facial mask for skin, I knew we had to share it with you.
Now before I hand it over to Danielle, I want to clear one thing up. If you’re not a fan of drinking green tea, this blog is still for you! There are tons of ways to get the benefits of green tea without sipping on it. Danielle has even included a recipe for her favorite DIY matcha face mask!
