As the weather gets cooler – our skin can get drier; instead of needing to purchase a new product try a homemade facemask that can be customized for your skin! The spirulina is nourishing while the yoghurt exfoliates the skin with Beta-Hydroxy-Acids (BHA’s) – an acid naturally occurring in dairy products. The addition of avocado will help to nourish a drier skin, whereas the Bentonite clay will help to absorb excess oil and brighten up the skin too; the aloe vera gel works well if skin is dehydrated
Spirulina and Yoghurt Face Mask
Mix ½ tsp. of powdered Spirulina with 1 tsp. of Organic Yoghurt (full fat yoghurt works best), scoop out the thicker part of the yoghurt.
Mix well and apply to the face and neck in a thin layer, taking care to avoid getting this on your clothes. Leave on for 5 - 10 minutes and then wash off with warm water, use a face cloth soaked in hot water to gentle steam the face afterwards.
Use this mask 2-3 times per week to brighten and nourish the skin.
*If you are vegan substitute the yoghurt with either coconut yoghurt or mashed avocado.
Optional Boost to mix into the base mask:
Dry Skin: add 1 tsp. of mashed avocado or ¼ tsp. avocado oil
Dehydrated Skin: 1 pump or ½ tsp. of Aloe Vera gel
Blemishes/Acne prone skin: ¼ tsp. Bentonite clay
Oily Skin: ½ tsp. Bentonite clay
