Comment on Matcha green tea face mask by Sarah Best.

Hi Corina!

Great questions! As far as whether acne will get worse before it gets better using this mask, we all react to things differently. However, one thing I will say is that whereas I’ve noticed that a clay mask definitely has this purging, worse-before-it’s-better effect on my skin, I haven’t ever had that effect with the matcha mask.

You can use it every night if you like and yes to cleansing first and moisturising after. Unless you apply a very thick layer of the mask to your face, you will probably find it’s dried within 15 to 20 minutes – at this point you can remove it. There is nothing in it that’s likely to cause a bad skin reaction – you’re more likely to get a lovely glow! Assuming you do, go ahead and leave it on for 30 minutes or longer next time, if you wish.

Hope this helps!

Hi Lori,

That’s wonderful that you’ve been enjoying the mask. How often depends on your skin. For some women once or twice a week will be ideal, while others will find they can use it more frequently with great results. I’d say experiment, and if your skin starts to feel sore or dry, pull back on the frequency.

Hi Cindy,

I don’t know which mask you’re thinking of, but matcha powder is easy to find now πŸ™‚

Hi Laura! I use a v mild natural/organic cream cleanser, applied using cotton wool pads, for this. It’s a gentle way to quickly lose the green tint πŸ™‚ x

So you grew up with a dad who didn’t know how to express love? Here’s how it could be affecting you today
Hi Nina,

Thank you so much for sharing that.

Yes, it is devastating to miss the love of a father.

And it’s not made any easier by the fact that this is so little talked about and understood.

But for what it’s worth, in the four years since I began writing about this topic I’ve heard from SO many women who feel just as you do.

That’s why I started my free email series on the father-daughter relationship, which is designed to answer the very questions you posed, and which I see you’ve signed up for. I hope you’ll find it helpful.

Thanks again for the share.

Thank you for commenting, Miriam. I’d forgotten that I recommended agave in this article and I’ve made a note to revise it, as I have since revised my views – very much in line with what you wrote, in fact! I blogged about that here: http://www.sarahbesthealth.com/is-agave-syrup-a-healthy-alternative-to-sugar/ I still consider brown rice syrup a great choice since it’s essentially fructose free. As for research on the impact on emotional and mental wellbeing of consuming a high-sugar diet, I couldn’t agree more! And I personally think that what’s come out on this so far is just the tip of the iceberg πŸ™‚
