How to make a Sea Moss Gel and Turmeric Face Mask
Prepare your Sea Moss Gel
Wash, soak and blend your Sea Moss and make it into a gel.
Allow your Sea Moss Gel to rest
By letting your gel rest for about 10 to 14 hours you’ll find that the face mask comes out more pliable and is easier to mix.
Add your dry ingredients
In a small bowl, add your dry ingredients; chlorella, kelp, macca, turmeric, spirulina and bentonite powders.
Add your Sea Moss Gel
Carefully mix through your gel until you get a consistent and smooth paste
Sea Moss Face Mask Beauty Routine
These days my beauty routine always includes Sea Moss. If you’ve ever wondered how to make your own Sea Moss Face Mask, this is what I’m about to reveal.
I put Sea Moss Gel on my face, neck and decolletage every night. The steps outlined below are by far the quickest and easiest way to make a Sea Moss Face Mask in my opinion.
One thing I really like about this is that you can make it as thick or thin as you like. Personally, I like a thin gel but I know other people that prefer a thicker viscosity. If you would rather buy pre-made Sea Moss Gel, then you’ve got plenty of choices too.
When you discover how Sea Moss is so good for your insides, why wouldn’t you use it on your skin as well?
A Sea Moss mask helps to improve your skin’s firmness, reduces pore size, reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
How to Make Your Sea Moss Face Mask
Ingredients: Sea Moss Gel, chlorella powder, maca powder, kelp powder, spirulina powder, turmeric powder and bentonite clay.
I told you I was going to reveal my dirty little secret… Are you ready to get dirty?
In a small bowl add
- 1/2 tsp chlorella powder
- 1/2 tsp maca powder,
- 1/2 tsp kelp powder,
- 1/2 tsp spirulina powder,
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, and
- 1 tsp bentonite clay powder.
This is the foundation for your dry mask mixture. Please be careful with these powders because they will stain. I would suggest wearing an old item of clothing or a dark top so that it won’t be noticeable if you get some paste onto it.
Method: Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of Sea Moss Gel, and mix the dry ingredients together until you have a paste.
Application: Before applying your homemade Sea Moss face mask, remove any makeup and wash your face. Using your hands, or a face mask applicator brush, apply the Sea Moss face mask to your face, neck and decolletage.
If there’s extra, I like to apply it to the back of my hands as well. Then you can relax and enjoy a cup of tea and a good book for about 15 to 20 minutes.
After use: When the face mask is dry, rinse your face with warm water and apply a serum or moisturiser as desired.
Sea Moss provides a host of benefits for hair and skin health. Here are just some of the minerals that can be found in Irish Sea Moss Seaweed:
- Amino Acids
- Collagen protein
- Organified silver
- MSM ~ Organic sulfur
- Vitamin A, C, D, E, F, and K
Irish Sea Moss is an incredibly nutrient-dense superfood, which is why I try and find every excuse to use it. Try adding it to your:
- Beauty routine
- Coffee and Tea
- Homemade ice cream
- Soups, and
As Sea Moss has little to no smell or flavor when it has been prepared properly, there is no real need to concern yourself with any taste or smell changes it may have on other foods.
I often use it as a plant-based thickening agent as a substitute for gelatin.
When you have applied your Sea Moss face mask, you can literally feel your skin getting tighter as the gel starts to absorb into the skin and dry.
For me, Sea Moss Gel has become a daily routine. If I don’t use it, I know all about it.
I used to put Sea Moss Gel on my face in the morning, but because the gel was quite thick, it would begin to flake during the day.
There is also a slightly different recipe that I make, turning the Sea Moss Gel into serum by mixing it with a few drops of essential oils like Melaleuca, Lavender, and Frankincense.
Sea Moss Gel is the Natural Botox
One of my friends calls her Irish Sea Moss Face Mask her ‘Natural Botox’. I thought that was quite appropriate, but it does so much more than that.
