For: Wrinkles and stressed skin
As we age, the collagen in our skin depletes. However, various factors can cause early wrinkles including stress and UV rays from the sun. A vast amount of exposure can break down the connective tissue, harming both collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. Hence, sunscreen is so important, especially on the face. The OG of Japanese beauty, green tea, is full of antioxidants that can reduce wrinkles. It also kills acne-causing bacteria from spreading and protects the skin from UV damage. Topped with lemon juice, the skin barriers are tightened further. As for turmeric, its anti-inflammatory properties form a skin shield to prevent wrinkles and better acne scars, age spots, dark marks, and discolouration.
Ingredients: Two tablespoons of green tea, half a tablespoon of turmeric powder, and juice from half a lemon.
Directions: Mix all the ingredients together and apply the mask with a cotton ball onto clean skin, or particular areas to target. Let it sit for three minutes. Then, repeat the procedure until the mixture is finished, and let the final coat of the mask settle in for 10 minutes. For positive effects, repeat this mask at least three times a week at night.
