Our skin is the largest organ of absorption in our bodies and it consumes substances that it converts into raw materials to renew the fabric or throw away potential toxins. At Amapola, we have created masks that really nourish your skin and supply all of the food your skin needs.
We present three masks based on the nutritional properties of three superfoods:
- Spirulina, an excellent detoxifier and cleaner
- Chia, calming and renewing for skin cells
- Moringa Oil, an antioxidant and revitalizing for your skin
WHAT DOES OUR SKIN EAT?
The skin is our body’s biggest organ, taking up about 1.5 square meters and covering every centimeter of our organism, protecting us from heat, cold, water, and more.
The skin absorbs many substances but also excretes products that our body produces, like sweat. In the skin, there are sweat glands, oil glands, sensory and temperature receptors… in summary, the functions are fundamental to maintain the health of our body.
Even though we receive much of our nutrition orally, our skin also consumes nutrients, and just as we chew and swallow our food and digest it in our stomachs before it is absorbed into our bodies, a small amount of the cosmetics that we apply on our skin enters our body and affects us almost as if we had ingested them.
The health of our skin depends on the blood that feeds it and the health of our blood is determined by the foods that one eats.
Because of this, we must think of cosmetics as food, and if it isn’t something you should eat, you shouldn’t apply it to your skin. The is the standard that helps us determine if something is pure and natural.
The foods present in our kitchens are excellent raw materials to produce healthy cosmetics. Cosmetics that can renew the skin and provide all of the necessary nutrients. With mango, coconut, bananas, enriched with spirulina, moringa or chia, we can prepare a nutritious smoothie at the same time we apply a mask with these same ingredients.

The masks should be applied over a clean surface, and it is better if you have exfoliated before.
