Spirulina is a microscopic freshwater plant and an amazing green superfood. It is one of the richest and most complete source of nutrition available being exceptionally high in protein (it contains 300% more protein than fish and meat…), iron, anti-oxidants and chlorophyl.
Spirulina is also great for your skin with its high content of vitamin A, vitamin B-12, vitamin E, calcium, iron and phosphorus – all of which the skin loves. Like coconut oil, spirulina powder is antibacterial and anti-ageing, and the two ingredients combined in this mask make a noticeable difference to the condition of your skin.
All you need:
1 tsp spirulina powder
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
a dash of water
All you need to do:
Simply mix the powder, coconut oil and water into a paste in a small bowl. Apply to your face and neck, leave for about 20 minutes, t
hen rinse off with a warm facecloth. Just an advance warning – the mask is bright green…
