The ultimate superfood face mask

Thursday, October 8, 2015

Have you heard of spirulina? This green alga is the richest source of antioxidants both for body and skin.

Balazs takes it in a form of a pill or a powder mixed into a glass of water, but I use it mostly on my skin. I found that spirulina is a fantastic beauty gem and truly the ultimate superfood for my sensitive skin. Furthermore, if you suffer from rosacea, a spirulina mask can smooth and calm your flushes and if used regularly, it can eliminate acne causing bacteria as well. Not to mention, it’s the perfect pick-me-up after those stressful days when your skin looks a dash dull. Basically, whatever your needs, it’s a great all-rounder!

Personally, I use the mask every second night while taking a bath, but you are welcome to start off with once a week and go from there.

Here is the how to: place in a small plate 1/2 tsp of spirulina powder or crush (with a spoon) one spirulina pill and mix it with a splash of water (literally just a few drops) until you have a thick paste. Apply the mask to clean skin and leave on for 30 minutes. Next, remove it with warm water and follow up with a moisturizer. Ta-dah!

Hope you give it a go! What’s your natural go-to beauty gem?

P.S: Immune boosting elixir.
P.P.S: Sage - the 'it' herbal remedy!
