DIY Spirulina Face Mask

This DIY spirulina face mask moisturizes, tightens and lifts skin while it promotes anti-aging and healthy skin. This mask also helps to clean up break-outs.

Spirulina is a blue-green alga that has been around since the beginning of time. Spirulina contains protein and almost all known antioxidants including; Vitamins C, B1, B5 and B6, zinc, manganese, copper, beta-carotene, vitamin E and amino acid methionine.

Antioxidants fend off free-radicals, eliminate toxins and increase the skin’s metabolism. Spirulina fights the appearance of aging due to its high protein source as it provides the skin oxygen. 

What that means in skincare is that with this DIY Spirulina Face Mask, you literally feed your skin.

We’ve nicknamed this mask superfood for a super face. This recipe is easy to whip up, try it twice a week for a month. Take a before and after shot and share it with us. This is my very favorite DIY mask. You will see a change in your skin, and that is when it makes the effort worth it.

Raw Honey and Spirulina

Full of micronutrients, raw honey is mother nature’s humectant. Honey moisturizes the skin and contains a high level of gluconic acid which brightens and evens-out skin tone. Honey helps with acne, also. Use crystallized honey for the added benefit of light exfoliation. Exfoliation aids in turning cells and lead to a fresh new layer of skin.

Evening primrose oil

It contains gamma-linolenic (GLA), a rare acid found in breast milk. GLA protects the integrity of the skin and strengthens while it provides moisture. Evening primrose oil nourishes the skin.

Waxing Kara Spirulina and Honey Mask
Spirulina Face Mask with Vitamins C, B1, B5 and B6, zinc, manganese, copper, beta-carotene, vitamin E and amino acid methionine.

Frankincense and Geranium essential oils

Both Frankincense and Geranium essential oils are known to be good for your skin. This blend also helps to overshadow the aroma of the Spirulina. If you prefer lavender essential oil or any others rated safe to be used on the skin, use those.

  1. Is it necessary to put the following in the mixture or is Spirulina and honey sufficient?
    1 capsule evening primrose oil
    6 drops frankincense essential oil
    4 drops geranium essential oil

  2. My skin has been very stressed and dry during UK’s almost year long lockdown (I am lucky enough to have my job and work from home). But with winter weather, indoor heating, developing insomnia and not being outdoors enough (I hate the cold winter weather) my skin barrier became compromised and any water moisture added to my skin would just get evaporated almost instantly. I had purchased a special oil blend with ceramides and lipids to replenish the delicate skin barrier, but it just wasn’t enough. I then bought a humidifier, which helps for sure, but still not enough. Last night I decided I need a lot of antioxidants to help support my skin healing process (inside and out) and to oxygenate my skin. So I remembered about the miracles of chlorophyll and took out my trusty spirulina from thr cupboard, dusted it off and mixed a bit with water and added some barley grass powder to boot (all organic). I dipped a cotton pad cut in half into the mix and placed this under my eyes and massage the rest of the emerald green water into the rest of my face. Left it on for a good while (maybe a half hour) then rinsed off with filtered water (London water is too soft with all the calcium/limescale and can add to excessive dryness in my skin)…. I then applied sensitive skin serum and finished with a few drops of Rosehip Oil all over and voila – very bright glowing bouncy skin! Under my eyes looked extremely refreshed (even with an allergic reaction to a probiotic I had been taking – small percentage of people in the world experience this – and it’s like hay fever lol) and when I woke up this morning – still bright! The tightness in my skin seems to have been more relieved as well! I love your article here and just wanted to share my experience. Spirulina and Barley Grass will be added into my daily skincare routine now! I even washed my face with some leftovers from last this morning! Glowing skin! And I love it X
