Incredible Benefits of Green for the Skin?

Stacey Boscoe Zinnanti, Licensed Clinical Aesthetician at BodyLab Med Spa

When we think March, we think of St. Patrick’s Day and, of course, green!

That’s why we’re giving you insight into our favorite green skincare ingredients. Below are three ultra-beneficial green products we use at BodyLab and what they can do!


With the use of our power Lira Clinical tool box we can detox and refresh your complexion for a healthy glow and firmer appearance. One of these tools, Badiaga (Spongia Officinalis), is a freshwater sponge that is found in the rivers of Russia. The name is derived from Russian folk medicine. This sponge is dried and milled extremely fine. It’s then used as a clinical resurfacing solution to reach the desired skin depth and has a unique blend of botanicals for optimum tightening of lackluster and sagging skin. Badiaga Increases healthy cell turnover for stronger collagen and elastin matrix. Here at BodyLab, we use it regularly for its Botanical melanin suppressants, healing and soothing effects and because it uses plant stem cell technology. We can brighten and lift the years away with Lira special marine botanicals. Badiaga is a powerful tool!


What is CBD and how does it work WITH and within the skin? What is the cannabis complexion connection? By now, we have heard the many (potential) benefits of Hemp CBD. We have seen it everywhere! There are many clinical papers on the dermatological benefits of cannabis. So, what can it actually do for your complexion? One widely researched and widely understood compound is that of terpenes. In the skin, terpenes provide access as well as facilitate communication between cannabinoid and ECS receptors. ECS receptors are a vast network of chemical signals and cellular receptors that are densely packed throughout our brains and bodies. Clinical research led the formulation process and, finally, a CBD-infused product was introduced by Lira Clinical to the Clinical skincare market. With the use of our Lira Clinical’s MYSTIQ Infused C, we can harness the Power of Clinical Cannabidiol Terpenes. Terpenes hold their own skin benefits from providing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, and even skin restoration. Our CBD-infused Hydro-Jell mask from Esthe-Max is perfect for us to use on all skin types. It delivers regenerative effects antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, regulates oil production and hyperpigmentation, and even encourages healthy cell turnover rates.

Green Tea

Drinking green tea has so many health benefits. Did you know it also fights acne- causing bacteria on your skin? The medicinal leaf contains Catechins, which are anti-bacterial in nature and can help reduce redness and inflammation. At BodyLab Med Spa, one product we find irreplaceable is the Epicuren Discovery Green Tea Soothing Mask. This mask has an Aloe Vera base for hydration to nourish and purify the skin. The Green Tea works instantly to comfort and diminish visual redness. It’s great for sensitive and inflamed skin conditions. It also heals your pimples without leaving unflattering scars. Green tea has a host of other positive effects on skin, not the least of which is its ability to protect it from the harmful effect of sun exposure.
