Taking care of your skin is something that you will be grateful as you age. When I was about 16 years old, I remember going to the dermatologist after having gotten what I thought was the perfect tan by lying under the sun for hours... Needless to say, she was furious with me for having done that, and said to me "in 10 years you will look like your friend's grandmother". Ever since I really pay close attention to the care I give to my face and my family. And yes... you probably guessed it right, this does include not lying under the sun anymore, but that's just me...
When I started my matcha journey, over 16 years ago, I was grateful to know I was nurturing my skin from within. Matcha powder is good for your skin because it is filled with a very high amount of antioxidants and amino acids that, if consumed on a regular basis will have your skin glowing and looking young and better than ever.
