Three Affordable and Effective Korean Masks with Green Tea
Green Tea is a well-known powerhouse ingredient for the skin, boasting antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
These can all work to improve both your skin's texture and overall appearance.
But today we're focusing on some affordable and effective Korean masks made with Green Tea.
Green Tea is one of those ingredients with an endless list of benefits. Its positive effects on the skin cannot be overstated.
Unsurprisingly, green tea has been used in Korean and Asian cosmetics for centuries. Packed with antioxidants, green tea works to reduce fine lines, minimise the signs of ageing and increase the skins elasticity. Its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties also make it a stellar ingredient in treating acne and oily skin. Baggy or puffy eyes can also benefit from the anti-inflammatory properties.
An ingredient with so many benefits that is perfect for all skin types will always be a winner in our books. Plus another added benefit? affordability! Korean sheet masks with green tea definitely don't break the bank. Below are our favourite and most cost-effective masks featuring this star ingredient.
If your skin is irritated, sensitive, or damaged, then we highly recommend the Benton Aloe Soothing Mask.
Packed with more than 48% aloe vera, as well as green tea, this mask is the perfect SOS.
If your skin has had a little too much sun or is battling breakouts, break out the Benton.
Containing no artificial flavours or volatile alcohol it's perfect for even the most sensitive skin. The thin TENCEL mask sheet also adheres easily to the skin and is jam packed with moisture to give you that instant hydration hit.
If you are a little sunburnt you can pop one of these in the fridge so that when you apply it, you get an added cooling sensation. These are also great to take away on holidays.
If you are headed somewhere with a warmer climate or you'll be outdoors a little more than usual, it’s also a great idea to pack a few of these. Trust us, your skin will thank you.
If you're suffering from breakouts or angry skin reach for Tosowoong Pure Green Tea Mask.
Formulated with 60% fermented green tea extract, this mask hydrates and softens the skin.
The essence in this mask is boosted with niacinamide and adenosine, which work together to improve the appearance of fine lines and brighten the skin.
Tosowoong Pure Green Tea Mask is a cult favourite of beauty bloggers around the globe. Because while it calms and reduces damaged skin, blemishes, and redness, it also helps to strengthen and protect the skin from harmful environmental aggressors. This is a must when fighting active breakouts.
These masks are great to have on hand if you find you suffer from hormonal acne that can flare up during menstruation or after periods of wearing heavy makeup.
For something a bit heavier try the Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Mask
Innisfree’s new overnight face mask delivers hydration and anti-oxidants from Jeju Green Tea extract. This sleeping mask also contains glycerin, betaine and lactobacillus ferment lysate.
Jeju Island is famed for its highly enriched volcanic soil and all of Innisfree’s Green Tea is grown right on Jeju Island. Innisfree also boasts that their special moisturising variety of tea was created after studying 2,401 varieties of Green Tea.
This sleeping mask also works to restore a healthy PH balance to the skin overnights and help lock in hydration as you sleep. If you have never tried a sleeping mask before this is a cheap and cheerful option to start out with.
For a more luxe variation, try Jelly Ko Cherry Blossom Sleeping Mask.
