The month of March brings a balance between the biting chill of winter and the budding life of spring. In many places, remnants of the cold season linger as early flowers unfurl and other signs of growth emerge.
As the season shifts, your body may reflect this tension, with winter’s impacts remaining on your soul and skin while you yearn to feel refreshed. This month’s Spirulina Mint Mask was thoughtfully handcrafted to enliven dry, dull skin with organic, plant-based powders, including coconut, oat, tulsi, banana, papaya, lavender, and, of course, rejuvenating spirulina and mint!
As light and life return, this heartfelt formula will help you gently shed your winter skin and awaken to the possibilities of spring.
Go forth and bloom. <3
Rehydrate and Repair
Winter’s cold air and low humidity can leave skin feeling chapped and parched. Many of the ingredients in this month’s Spirulina Mint Mask were selected for their ability to soothe dry, irritated skin and protect against seasonal discomfort.
Coconut milk makes up the mask’s moisturizing base and addresses the rough bumps and blemishes often provoked by winter weather. This delicate cleanser can help your skin feel soft and appear radiant. It also contains lauric acid, which has antibacterial properties that can defend against acne!
Oat is a gentle solution for stress-related skin conditions that’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Full of milky emollients that soften and hydrate, oat is a soothing addition to our Spirulina Mint Mask, easing the irritation that can stem from typical winter living.
Further nourishing the skin are two fruity powders, banana and papaya, that enhance the mask’s restorative potential. Nutritious banana has traditionally been used to soothe numerous skin afflictions; its silica content imbues it with hydrating, smoothing benefits. Vitamin-packed papaya encourages the shedding of dead skin cells, defends against environmental damage, and softens the appearance of wrinkles, giving skin a rejuvenated glow — a benefit that can help users tenderly attend to the natural effects of age while still feeling revitalized.
Tulsi, or “holy basil,” is an Ayurvedic herb used for its nourishing properties. Rich in vitamin C, tulsi treats minor skin conditions, promotes healthy skin aging, and protects against environmental stressors, such as UV rays and pollution — building your skin’s natural defenses as it boosts your skin’s health.
Renew and Reflect
This skin-soothing blend featured in our Spirulina Mint Mask evokes spring with its minty-fresh aroma and green color, granting you a moment to pause and anticipate the coming season’s growth as you apply it to your skin. Contributing to the mask’s verdant hue are French green clay, which tones and firms skin as it draws out impurities and clears blemishes, and nutrient-dense spirulina, a healing blue-green algae that’s toning and mildly detoxifying.
Two potent plants round out this month’s mask: Lavender is calming and encourages the skin’s natural healing process. Peppermint powder is cooling and refreshing when applied topically, and it’s a time-tested analgesic that can ease occasional headaches.
For an aromatherapeutic finish, the mask contains a hint of both lavender essential oil and peppermint essential oil, doubling down on these herbs’ properties and giving the mask an invigorating scent. The smell of lavender alleviates minor anxiety and tension. Peppermint is considered a stimulant, perfect for putting a little pep in your step.
This blend of calming lavender and energizing peppermint is fitting for reflecting on the balance between the slowness of winter and the vitality of spring as you nurture your skin — and support its softness and its strength — with ingredients befitting this transition between seasons.
March’s Moment of Pause:
As you gently apply the restorative Spirulina Mint Mask, we invite you to meditate on seasonal transitions. As we flow from winter to spring, do you find yourself awakening to the renewed growth and energy right around the corner, or would you like to stay curled up in your cozy home for a bit longer? There are no right or wrong answers, just feelings to compassionately uncover.
Applying your Spirulina Mint mask is a wonderful ritual that can help ease your transition between seasons by introducing more intention and awareness around the shift. Other simple rituals could include moving your lymph with a brisk walk, organizing your spring closet, or listening to the hopeful sound of birds chirping as you move through your day.
