How to Make Your Own Skincare: Easy Algae Mask

This is a really nourishing mask for combination, oily or normal skin. I always keep an aloe plant in the house for burns. As you probably already know, I’m extremely accident prone. If you have a plant just split one of the leaves and scrape out some juice. Otherwise you can pick up a bottle of the pure stuff from your local heath shop.


All you need:

  • 1 tablespoon Green Algae Powder
  • Pure Aloe Vera Juice

Both are available from you local health shop and aren’t expensive.  Mix the algae with enough aloe juice to make a paste. Leave it to stand for a minute, this gives it time to thicken up. Spread it on clean skin and relax for half an hour. Rinse off with warm water. Use a muslin cloth if you want to exfoliate a little while you’re at it.

This makes enough for one treatment. Use it while it’s fresh.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on :)
