This is a very easy and quick recipe that I make when I have breakouts and my skin is dehydrated at the same time, which usually happens to me in Summer no matter how much water I drink ^^

Summer facial mask DIY recipe for acneic skin, with honey and matcha green tea

About the ingredients


Honey is one of the best natural hydration boosters available. It will leave your skin soft and moisturised. Packed with many vitamins, honey also has skin regenerating and cicatrizing properties. It is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.

Matcha green tea

Matcha green tea can protect the skin against sun damage and solar UV-induced skin disorders, such as photoaging and skin cancer. A 2003 study by the Medical College of Georgia also showed that green tea aids skin rejuvenation with potential benefits for skin conditions as diverse as psoriasis, rosacea, wrinkles and wounds. Matcha also modulates sebum, balances hormones and has antibacterial effects, and all of that improves acne.
