This seaweed mask recipe is perfect for all skin types including aging, dry, oily, and acne prone. For thousands of years, people have been using the amazing properties of seaweed as a beauty tool to not only improve skin but also hair, nails, and overall health. Seaweed contains L-fucose which is a collagen-producing extract, making it an excellent candidate for reducing and preventing wrinkles. This is one of the reasons why seaweed masks and creams are SO expensive to purchase – they contain a ton of vitamins, minerals, and collagen-producing extracts which are crucial to healthy looking skin.
Seaweed is also packed with macro-minerals such as potassium, magnesium, phosphorous, calcium, copper, and over 70 trace minerals including selenium, zinc, iron, manganese, and molybdenum. All of these minerals are essential in collagen production, as well as overall skin health. If you're looking to turn back the hands of time, prevent wrinkles, get rid of acne, or just an amazing mask for amazing skin, this is your BEST bet! So save your money and make your own seaweed mask!
Seaweed Face Mask Recipe
- 1/2 teaspoon kelp powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chlorella or Spirulina
- 1 tbsp full fat yogurt or pure aloe vera gel
- 1 drop essential oil of your choice
Mix all ingredients together until it forms a smooth paste. If you need to, add more yogurt or aloe vera gel to create the perfect consistency. You can also use coconut oil instead of aloe vera or yogurt!
Apply to face and neck and let sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer.
If you're using yogurt, this mask will keep in the fridge for about a week, and if you're using fresh aloe vera gel, two days in the fridge. If you opt for the oil, this can hold for several weeks in the fridge. The choice is up to you!
