IMG_0288We were in Scottsdale for our retreat and it started to rain. Yes, it was raining in Arizona. Rachel and I had planned for a hike and some good outdoor adventure and we were faced with quite the debacle. We had it on the agenda to talk about self care but it turned into a face mask Smurf party. We whipped up these face masks with some Blue Majik spirulina from E3 Live, delicious chamomile tea and honey.


IMG_0291The blue spirulina is said to be used as support for antioxidant and cellular protection. Check out my other recipes with this Blue Majik. Your skin is one of the largest organs on your body. Giving your skin nourishment is just as important as your gut. Rare Tea Cellar makes some incredible teas and when I realized you could make face masks with tea, I knew the Emperor’s Chamomile was the way to go. It creates a nice relaxing sensation even for a very anxious and busy individual. Manuka honey comes from the bees that pollinate the Manuka bush. It is helpful with dermatitis, acne and eczema. There are MG compounds found in honey that have been shown to promote collagen structural growth, which increases elasticity in the skin and keep it looking firmer.
