DIY | Spirulina and Honey Face Mask

This face mask is super moisturizing, full of skin-loving ingredients and is so easy to make!!

Ingredients:

  • Spirulina is a simple one-celled microscopic blue-green algae that contains many health promoting qualities and is compromised of a total of 70 percent protein. Protein is essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. It helps fight the appearance of aging due to it’s high protein source and anti-oxidants. It contains almost all known anti-oxidants: C, B1, B5 and B5, zinc, maganese, copper, beta-carotene, vitamin E and amino acid methionine.
  • Raw Honey is full of antiseptic and antimicrobial properties and does wonders for moisturizing the skin and since it contains a high level of gluconic acid which is amazing for brightening the skin and evening out skin tone, it leaves your face looking more even and toned and shrinks pores almost immediately after using!

Directions:

Mix together one tablespoon of Spirulina and one tablespoon of Raw Honey. Stir really well in a bowl until the consistency is creamy. Spread all over your face either using your fingers or a foundation brush (I find that using a foundation brush helps to apply the mixture more evenly). Leave on for 20-45 mins. Wash with warm water and feel the difference in your skin!! I do this mask once or twice a week and absolutely love the results.

I took a few photos below to show you what the mixture looks like on the skin. I love the color of the Spirulina, it’s such a beautiful and almost iridescent green.

What are your favorite DIY face masks?

    • Yay! let me know if you try it!! I got my Spirulina at a local co-op market so I don’t know a specific brand off of the top of my head but if you look at whole foods market or any local market I am sure they will have Spirulina there!! I have been putting it into smoothies as well, it’s so good for you!!

  1. Hi Britanie!
    Nice tip!

    I usually have a honey mask once a week (just honey – provides nourishment and lock in the moisture)
    Or, sometimes I do a yoghurt mask (mild peeling action) or rhassoul clay mask (purifying while at the same time providing minerals and improving skin clarity)

    • I use a honey face mask once a week as well! It’s super moisturizing. Sometimes I use honey as a face wash as well. I find that adding the Spirulina is a nice way to just spice up the mask a bit and add extra benefits to the skin. It’s really easy. I also sometimes mix the Spirulina with clay as well which is a nice mask! I will have to try the yogurt mask! I have heard a lot of raves about that. Thanks for your comment!!! xoxo

  2. May I ask what kind of raw honey you use? I haven’t seen one in that creamy consistency before.

    This mask recipe looks very nice, I personally consume Spriluna (mixed in my juice) and it boosts up my energy by so much. The green really reminds me of Dr. Alkaitis mask, have you tried?
    :( Not sure why I always end up with red bumps and rushes whenever I make home made masks! I don’t understand because the ingredients that I get are always ‘organic’.

    • Hey! I use raw honey by “wee bee honey” it’s super creamy and really easy to blend with other ingredients like the spirulina! I highly recommend using creamy raw honey! I use spirulina interally as well! I like to mix it with water or add it in a smoothie! It’s fgreat. I have not tried the Dr. Alkaitis mask! I will have to look into that!! It’s possible that the red bumps that you get could be from your skin purging. Sometimes when you use the most organic and clean ingredients it can cause you to detox and actually make your skin worse at first!! If you keep with it you will notice that you skin should become clearer and have a glow to it! I noticed that when I first started washing my face with honey that I actually started to break out a little bit! I kept with it though and after awhile it was gone and my skin looked so much better than ever before! I really think it’s our bodies way of detoxing!

  3. I have been drinking spirulina for about 3 months now and just love it. If I don’t feel like having a meal, I’ll replace it with a water bottle and a teaspoon of spirulina. Except when I drink it before bed (which I did tonight) It is harder to get to sleep. Anyways, on to the spirulina and honey face mask. A few weeks ago, after finishing my spirulina/water mix, i noticed the leftover spirulina in the bottom of my cup, and thought…hey! I bet this would make a really great face mask. I tried it and I loved it, it went on smooth and stayed on for about 45min, and rinsed off really easy. I have been doing it a few times a week ever since. I’ve done raw honey masks for a couple years and I love honey too. I use raw honey as a face wash, face mask, and I eat it all the time too. Yum and Yay for honey! So, I read your post about a spirulina and honey face mask and thought… hey why didn’t I think of putting them together!! So I’m trying it right now and I am soo loving it. So thank you :) :) xo

  11. Hi there just curious to know of this recipe may work on skin other than the face. one of my daughters have eczema and its not really on her face. Mute.bb like arms and back of neck and legs. Do u think it will do anything for her problematic areas???? Thx

  12. Hi,

    I am doing your manuka honey nutmeg mask you suggest for eczema and hoping it helps. However, I didn’t have vitamin e so I am using jojoba oil. Do you think that’s ok? I’m so stressed from this eczema flair appearing out of nowhere (I’m sure the stress isn’t helping calm the situation). I can only wish that my eyes aren’t swollen for my birthday in a couple days. Please share any other tips you may have.

    Thanks and I appreciate your site!
