Welcome To The 179th Masterpiece Monday and Seaweed Skincare

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share some DIY beauty products that you can make at home yourself. 
I made this olive oil and seaweed cellulite scrub after hearing about it on the Dr. Oz show. I love that show, always very informative. I did alter the recipe and added 3 times the salt, because I wanted the scrub to be thicker. If you have a difficult time finding powdered seaweed, or you don't feel like driving all over to find it like me,  you can purchase it online. I found mine on Amazon. 
So what are some of the skin benefits of seaweed?
  • revitalizes and firms the skin
  • nourishes and repairs damaged skin cells
  • oxygenate and detoxifies the skin
  • reduces appearance of cellulite
  • balances and hydrates
  • purifying and soothing
  • re-mineralizing
  • absorbs easily
  • improves skin and tone
  • protects the skin from free radical damage
  • fights skin inflammation and irritation
  • slows down the aging process of the skin
  • rejuvenates, prevents wrinkles, hydrates and brightens skin
Sounds good to me!
I've also found some DIY recipes for a seaweed facial mask and a  seaweed body wrap. I'm in love with all three recipes and I made a beauty care index card holder out of paint chips to keep them handy. I'm planning on adding some more DIY beauty recipes to the card holder, seaweed and non-seaweed related in the future. Also FYI, I scoop a little of my scrub in a plastic baggie if I'm taking it into the bath tub to avoid any broken glass! Also check with your doctor if you have seafood or iodine allergies before using seaweed or sea salt.
