Spirulina has been making waves – and not just because of its cool, blue-green hue. While a splash in your smoothies makes for delicious eye candy, spirulina benefits skin health, too. Mixed into this DIY charcoal mask, the nutrient-rich superfood soothes redness and helps smooth out your complexion. Apply it once a week while you soak in a warm bubble bath, and you’ll soon see a tidal shift in your skin tone.
DIY Charcoal Mask With Spirulina
- In a small glass bowl, mix together mask ingredients until completely blended.
- Using your fingertips, apply the mask all over your face and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
- Rinse off mask with warm water and a washcloth.
- Add vinegar to cotton pad and smooth over clean skin. This post-mask toner helps skin soak up your favorite moisturizer, acne cream or other skin treatment.
Note: If redness occurs, reduce the time you let the mask sit to just 5 minutes. If well-tolerated, you can build up to 10 minutes.
