Don’t you love a peel-off mask? There’s something strangely satisfying about it – which we don’t need to go into – but, it makes me pretty certain that you’re going to have fun with this recipe!
Using seaweed as skincare dates back centuries. In Ireland, where my husband is from, seaweed baths have been used since the 12th century to help cure all sorts of ailments. It’s used to replenish the body of minerals, cleanse and nourish the skin.
Seaweed, especially Nori, is packed with beautifying Vitamin A (retinol) and Vitamin C – which help to repair damaged skin cells and promote collagen – so this recipe makes more sense than it looks 🙂
You can find dried Nori seaweed (the kind used to make sushi) in most health food stores, or in a supermarket. Just make sure it’s not flavoured! Try this brand: Emerald Cove
