Green Tea Face Mask Recipe

Most of the face mask recipes that I post are for one use.  This one is a little different because you make the powder and then add the liquid when you're ready to use it.  You can use cooled brewed green tea, aloe vera juice, or water to make your scrub.

The kaolin clay is very soothing, so it won't irritate your skin.  Milk powder nourishes your skin.  Green tea is full of antioxidants, and it helps when drank or applied topically.  Tea tree oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties, so it can prevent or heal other blemishes.

What You Need


1.  Place clay in a glass bowl.

2.  Add powdered milk or oat flour.  I used powdered milk.

3.  Cut open green tea bags and measure out 1 tablespoon green tea.  I used three bags, but you might use more or less depending on the kind of tea that you use.

4.  Add the green tea to the mixture.  You can also use 1 tablespoon loose green tea if you would like.

5.  Add 4 drops tea tree oil or other essential oil if desired.  I used tea tree oil for its acne fighting properties.

6.  Stir well and store in a glass or plastic container with a lid.  

To use, mix 2 teaspoons mask mix with 2 teaspoons of water, aloe vera or aloe juice, or brewed green tea.  Spread over your face in a circular motion.  Let dry for 10 - 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Do not premake the wet mask because it doesn't have a preservative and can grow bacteria.  Discard leftovers.
