Seaweed the superfood

Hi guys!


Today I wanna talk about one of my favorite snacks. It's the delicious wrapper of many sushi dishes, a main ingredient in some salads or could go as a snack when dried. But this algae isn't only delicious, it's also very healthy! Seaweed has a ton of vitamins and minerals in it and researches said eating a sheet of nori seaweed equals 2 sandwiches in nutrients!



When applied to the skin it withdraws access oils and water. Which is great for people with combination to oily skin. The seaweed tones and smooths the skin. I like to make a mask out of it once in a while! Here's how:


Step one

Shred the nori sheets in little pieces so they fit onto your face and prepare bowl with lukewarm water.


Step two

Steam your face before applying with a facial steamer or press a warm hand cloth against your face to open the pores.


Step three

This is the fun part. Now you can apply a little bit of honey on your face. This will not only help the nori to stick, but is also super moisturising and helps curing acne and stops ageing! Thank you, mother nature :) Now place the pieces of seaweed onto your face and try to fit all of them leaving only your eyebrows, mouth and your under eye blank.


Step four

Leave the mask on for about 20 to 30 minutes. Be aware that you are not able to talk during this time.


Step five

Rinse the mask with lukewarm water. You can close your pores by splashing some cold water onto your face. Next just feel the softness!



I hope this was helpful and please let me know if you guys tried it!

Love,
