Behold the beauty secret of this under water goddess with a super green mask that's soothing, hydrating and ultra calming.

This superfood green Spirulina powder is: A fantastic source of antioxidants, helps your skin retain moisture, smooths and exfoliates, helps to eliminate bad bacteria that can cause acne, contains chlorophyll which is super cleansing.
Aloe vera is especially perfect for DIY face masks. Just cut off a small piece, slice it open and scoop out the sticky gel, then add it to the mask. It helps to treat sunburn, heal skin conditions (acne, eczema), moisturize; no greasy feel, fight aging, improve firmness with all the antioxidants (vitamin C, beta carotene) it offers and will keep skin hydrated too.
Manuka honey originates from New Zealand, where the bees feast on flowers of the Tea Tree Plant. This potent manuka honey is especially great for:
Healing acne and scarring, fighting skin infections, cleaning pores while naturally exfoliating, helping skin to retain moisture. It's also anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and high in antioxidants! The consistency is much thicker than regular honey with a cloudy appearance. My skin is totally moisturized and balanced after soaking up some healing manuka honey. It’s truly some magical stuff!
