Green tea

It doesn’t get much better in terms of antioxidant content than Green tea, and your skin is in for a real treat when you apply this superfood ingredient topically. Green tea is richly concentrated in a class of antioxidants called polyphenols which will help to ward off free radicals, reduce inflammation and fight bacteria in the skin for clearer, more youthful and glowing skin.

Maca

This superfood is a favourite amongst acne sufferers due to its high concentration of zinc, a mineral that has been proven to clear and heal problem skin. It doesn’t stop there. Maca is rich in Vitamin C which is said to support collagen production, while Vitamins D and E help regulate collagen production and neutralize free radicals. We should also mention that your skin will glow for days. Bonus!

Amla

The antioxidants and incredibly potent Vitamin C content in Amla, also known as Indian Gooseberry, help to brighten and revitalize the complexion. This superfruit also has astringent properties, so it helps to tone, tighten, and firm the appearance of skin.

Seaweed

Seaweed offers deep hydration, which we all know is the key to youthful skin. Seaweed is a powerful anti-inflammatory, so its great for soothing skin and reducing the appearance of redness. Did you know Seaweed is also great for improving the appearance of firmness and tone in the skin? Yes! Just think of those Seaweed wraps at the Spa…hello firm skin!

Hibiscus

You may be more familiar with hibiscus flowers as an ingredient in your favourite herbal teas, but hibiscus offers some surprising and amazing benefits when used topically in skin care.

Hibiscus is known as the “the Botox plant”, because of its incredible ability to inhibit the activity of the enzyme Elastase, which is responsible for breaking down our skin’s precious elastin. By preserving and protecting the skin’s elastin, hibiscus increases the elasticity of skin, providing a firmer and lifted appearance to the skin.

Papaya

Papaya contains an enzyme called ‘papain’ which helps to enzymatically dissolve surface dead skin cells. This aids in reducing the appearance of dark spots and acne scars over time. Papain is a very effective exfoliator, and leaves skin with a beautifully vibrant and fresh glow.

 

Huna Superfood Detox Mask is fully loaded with all of the delicious skin-nourishing superfoods listed above- Green tea, Maca, Amla, Seaweed, Hibiscus, and Papaya, plus contains other skin-saving botanicals like Sea Buckthorn Berry, Turmeric, and brightening Acerola cherry and Camu Camu berry.
