Caffeine AND antioxidants? Yes please!

When we’re trying to watch our caffeine intake and treat our immune system with care (instead of leaving her to fend for herself like we usually do) there’s no better mug buddy than a freshly brewed cup of green tea.
From herbaceous fragrant sencha blends to ritualistic matcha tea ceremonies, there’s something oddly soothing and meditative about the whole process of enjoying the kermit-hued beverage. So why not sink into the spa-vibes of it all? Pour yourself some green tea and simultaneously apply a green tea-infused mask to reap the 360 skin care benefits of the caffeine and antioxidant-rich ingredient.
We’ve collected six green tea-infused face masks for just that reason – trust us, your next mask sesh is about to get lit.
