DIY Spirulina Face Mask

Jump to Recipe

We call this honey spirulina face mask superfood for a super face. Your skin will thank you for this one.

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

Spirulina is a blue-green algae 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

Contains gamma-linoleic (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.

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.
