Superfood Face Mask

One of my all time favourite things is natural beauty products. Creating my own from super foods that nourish my skin is so fun too. You can nourish your skin from the inside out of course, but the added benefit of feeding the skin by applying this nutritious face mask is a bonus.

I came up with this mask using ingredients from my cupboards and I am now so addicted. The results it gives me are amazing, plus it smells delicious, and yeah you can eat it if you want…  (my number one rule for my beauty products, if you can eat it, I’ll use it ) I find this moisturise’s , plump’s and leaves my skin with a smooth  even tone.

Perfect for this winter weather.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp of spirulina powder
  • 1 tsp of raw honey
  • 1 tsp of msm powder
  • 1 tsp of camu camu
  • 1 – 2 tsp of filtered water

Mix together into a smooth green paste! Apply to face and leave on for 15-30 minutes. I have left this on for longer as it is very nourishing and I find gentle on my sensitive skin too.

Wash off using a warm flannel for best results.

Benefits of Spirulina for the skin:

  • Spirulina has a high content of vitamin A, vitamin B-12, vitamin E, calcium, iron and phosphorus, all of which are vital for your skin’s health.
  • Spirulina is effective in treating dark circles and dry eye symptoms. Its detoxifying effects give your eyes new energy and power, removing dark shadows and dryness.

Benefits of Camu Camu for the skin:

  • Since it carries such an extraordinarily high content of vitamin C, and Vitamin C works wonders on your complexion, smoothing fine lines while firming the skin and improving tone. Camu camu is also chock-full of antioxidants, which help ward off free radicals.

Benefits of Raw Honey for the skin:

  • Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it’s great for acne treatment and prevention.
  • Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
  • It is extremely moisturising and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
  • Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.
  • Its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties make it great for healing cuts and burns by killing bacteria and fungus.
  • Raw honey also contains gluconic acid, a mild alpha hydroxy acid that brightens the complexion, evens out skin tone, and lightens scars and age spots.

Benefits of MSM Powder for the skin:

  • MSM is a nutritional form of sulphur, which is an essential component in the formation of collagen, elastin, cartilage and keratin. It gives flexibility, tone and strength to muscles, bones, joints, internal membranes and especially the skin, hair and nails.
  • Adequate levels of sulphur in the body help to promote a radiant complexion, glowing skin and mineralised hair. Therefore sulphur is often referred to as “The beauty mineral”. However, research has found that most people are deficient in sulphur and that deficiency increases with age.
  • Oxygen availability is increased – MSM helps to get oxygen into the blood more efficiently.
  •  MSM works particularly well in combination with vitamin-C rich foods

Lots  of Love & Wellness
