The Surprising Ingredient For Younger-Looking Skin

Share

What if we told you that an ingredient in your favorite green tea latte has anti-aging properties? By now you’ve probably consumed (and Instagrammed) more matcha drinks than you can count, and the truth is you’ve actually been helping your skin the entire time. Matcha has been infused into a slew of beauty products recently because of its protective and anti-inflammatory agents.

Putting it on your skin, in addition to sipping it, can also work serious wonders. We’ve gathered some of our favorite matcha-infused products that are totally worth a try.
