Seaweed has many natural health benefits, and certain kinds can be used on the face to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. Kelp powder, which is sold at specialty stores and online, can be used to create a facial mask by mixing it with an all natural gel from the aloe vera plant. This liquifies the kelp and prepares it to be used for skin care.
Things You'll Need
- 2 tablespoons powdered kelp
- 1/4 cup aloe vera
- Small bowl
Mix together 2 tablespoons of kelp powder, 1/4 cup of aloe vera gel, and 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl.
Mix the ingredients together well using a spoon. The consistency should be similar to a thick paste.
Spread the mixture in a thin and even layer over your entire face and neck. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Rinse the mixture from your face using room temperature water.
Pat the skin dry with a towel.
