How to Make Your Own Sea Moss Face Mask

Come closer, I’m going to share my dirty little secret with you! How to make your own Sea Moss Face Mask using Irish Sea Moss Gel, chlorella, spirulina, maca, turmeric, kelp, and bentonite clay.

So let’s jump straight in if you just want to get the ‘how to’ steps. If you’re after more about variations and when I choose to apply this face mask, read on.

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.

Added Benefits

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
  • Calcium
  • Collagen protein
  • Copper
  • Folate
  • Iodine
  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Magnesium
  • Organified silver
  • MSM ~ Organic sulfur
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Riboflavin
  • Zinc
  • 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
  • Cakes
  • Coffee and Tea
  • Gravy
  • Homemade ice cream
  • Juices
  • Sauces
  • Smoothies
  • Soups, and
  • Stews

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.

Here is a snapshot of what your Sea Moss Face Mask may be able to do for you:

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Reduce acne
  • Provide anti-bacterial support
  • Draw out impurities
  • Support collagen production
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Help with fading scars
  • Improving elasticity
  • Reducing the signs of premature ageing
  • Maintaining a youthful complexion
  • Improving your skins moisture
  • Increase circulation
  • Reduce pore size
  • Toning the skin, and
  • Tightening and firming sagging skin

Irish Sea Moss Gel is used by many to help soothe rashes, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and burns.

The Sea Moss face mask may feel dry to some, but it’s actually doing the opposite. It restores vital nutrients and mineral to your skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft.

The anti-bacterial properties help to draw out impurities, while the anti-oxidant properties help to feed and support your skin.

  1. l was putting the sea moss gel into my porridge ,but l put it on my face now and its amazing ,it makes my skin feel refreshed

  2. Thanks for your comment Sue.

    We love applying the Sea Moss Gel to our faces. We tend to make Sea Moss Gel blend into a smooth paste. I tent to make it a bit runnier because it spreads a long way. Apply about 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon directly into my face, neck and decolletage before bed.

    I keep Sea Moss Gel into a separate container and add a few drops of my favourite essential oils e.g. Tea Tree, Lavender, Camomile, and Clary Save. I chose this due the healing and soothing properties but you can make whatever blend you like.

  3. hi!! how long does this last? is it a one time use or is it possible to make enough to last a week and not have to make everyday?

  4. Hello Michelle,

    I make a batch of about 100ml and add a blend of essential oils. At this time my current batch has 2 drops of Cedar and 3 drops of Clary Sage in it. You can roll with whatever you like. The trick is to not go too heavy on the oils as some can be very powerful. I find that this lasts for 3 to 4 weeks on the bathroom counter.

    As far as usage goes, I’ll get through this typically before the 4 weeks. The longest I have left this on the bathroom counter for is 8 weeks, and it was still fine. The essential oils act as a natural preserving agent.

    If you’re going to add these, just make sure that the ones you choose don’t cause a reaction with your skin, and be careful with ones that can be sensitive around the eyes. Oils like peppermint can be a little uncomfortable on such thin skin.

    I hope this helps you.

  5. You certainly can Takeesh, I use it every day without turmeric. This is more of a once in a while thing for me to use turmeric.

  6. Hello Videlle,

    If you prefer to enjoy a cooling mask then you can use it straight out of the fridge. I prefer to allow it to come closer to room temperature.

  7. Hello Kim,

    There are animal based forms of collagen that you might choose to use instead. A lot of marine collagen comes from fish, and most other forms of collagen on the market are derived from bovine. I would not suggest using Sea Moss for anything if you are iodine sensitive.

    If sticking with plant based options is high priority for you, Healthline published an article about 2 years ago where they explored the use of genetically modified yeast and bacteria.

    Personally, I find that GMO rhymes so well with ‘No’, so that’s off the list for me.
