Beautiful Skin – Seaweed Facial

Rejuvenate Your Skin with a Simple Seaweed Facial Mask

This simple facial mask will leave your face feeling incredibly soft, smooth and looking absolutely radiant. This mask contains kelp, honey, and aloe vera and is my favourite DIY beauty routine that I do at least once a week.

If you read my recent post on seaweed baths you will have learned that seaweeds have been traditionally used to detoxify the body both internally and externally.

Seaweeds are rich in nutrients which help to both tone and nourish the skin. Seaweed contains mineral salts that can help the skin to hold its moisture better, which helps to smooth fine lines. This photograph is of some of my lovely clients who came on my Natural Woman Programme and seaweed baths and facials are always on the menu.

Adding honey to your mask adds additional moisture to the skin. Honey is a natural humectant that is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and sugar. The sugar and enzymes in honey is a gentle exfoliate for the skin.
When possible use raw honey to ensure that you get the maximum quality and benefit of this wonderful golden treat.

Aloe Vera has been known for its amazing healing properties for centuries. It has
been used to help heal burns, eczema, sores, acne, insect bites, and more. It’s an antiseptic, highly lubricant, and penetrates deep into the skin.

Kelp in a powdered form can be purchased in most Natural Food Stores along with Aloe Vera and Organic Honey.

To benefit from these ingredients, create this simple mask:
1 tbsp. Kelp powder
½ tbsp. honey (raw honey is best)
½ tbsp. Aloe vera gel (99.9% pure)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl and apply to a clean face. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
To enjoy glowing, healthy looking skin, use this mask twice a week. I promise you will enjoy this mask and make it a regular part of your beauty programme.
