DIY Seaweed Face Mask
If the beautiful emerald color of this face mask doesn’t pull you in, the benefits to using this homemade mask will. This recipe includes 2 types of seaweed Fucus vesiculosus and chlorella. The types of seaweed used are essential because not all nutrients can be absorbed by the skin. Prime example is collagen, applied directly to the skin collagen is ineffective, but these algae are absorbed through transdermal contact and support your own natural collagen production when applied to skin.
