When you think of superfoods, face masks may be the last thing on your mind. However superfoods being packed with nutrients and vitamins are a perfect reason to consider putting them on your face. I personally love face masks so playing and creating masks with the Genesis Today superfoods was a lot of fun. After much trial and error I developed 3 DIY superfood face masks you have to try to give your face a radiant boost!
Goji Berry Face Mask
Goji berries do an awesome job at protecting your face by reducing the amount of harmful free radicals from breeching your skin.
1 ounce Genesis Today Goji 100
1 teaspoon non-fat plain greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoonManuka honey
1 tablespoon oat flour
Mix all the ingredients together well then apply to your face using a foundation brush. Leave on your face for 10 minutes then rinse and pat dry.
Get Your Greens Face Mask
Noni and Genesis Today Greens contains a variety of superfoods such as spirulina. Both ingredients are full of antioxidants that prevent free radicals from damaging cells thus yielding regenerative properties.
1/2 scoop of Genesis Today Greens
1 ounce Genesis Today Noni 100
Mix all the Noni into the Daily Greens and blend well, the mask should be a thicker consistency. Apply to your face using your fingers and leave on for 15 minutes then rinse and pat dry.
Acai Power Face Mask
Acai berries work to protect your skin and are full of fatty acids. Honey has tons of antibacterial properties! These two were a match made in heaven for a face mask.
1 ounce Acai 100
1 teaspoon Manuka honey
1 teaspoon non-fat plain greek yogurt
Mix together the yogurt and honey well then add in the acai. The mask should be a medium thickness and you should apply to your face using a foundation brush and leave on for 7-10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry.
If you don’t own any Genesis Today products yet then you’re in luck. From now until September 10th, using the code SUPERSUMMER will get you a whopping 20% off anything online. That’s a steal!

I never thought about using food supplements as an ingredient for a face mask. That makes a lot of sense though. It’s definitely worth a try as well. This is great!

I can see how these facemasks would be good since acai is so good for you. Always budget friendly to make homemade masks. I like it!

Wow, these are amazing! I haven’t try super food mask but I’d love too.
The yogurt and honey with the acai sounds soothing. I’m loving face masks here lately.
This is so clever! I never thought of using superfoods for a face mask! Our skin can absorb the nutrients and put them to good use right away! Brilliant!
I didn’t try this type of masks, but sounds like a cool idea! I can imagine how nicely they smell too 😉

Superfoods for your face does seem like an odd concept until you think about it. These natural ingredients have so many health benefits it makes sense to apply them to your face for natural superfood boost!
I just tried a face mask today with avocados. Will try this next time!
Face masks are always great. They can be so relaxing too. I love being able to use them. I have never made my own before though.
Ooooo nothing better than a face mask!!! I will have to try these out 🙂
