Irish Moss gel is a great ingredient for a nourishing and soothing topical treatment for sunburnt skin. Here's our recipe to make this at home.
- ¼ cup Irish moss gel
- 1 cup distilled water
- ¼ cup aloe vera gel
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- A few drops of essential oil (lavender or chamomile)
- Measure ¼ cup of the seaweed jelly, then mix it with the aloe vera gel.
- Pour the seaweed mixture into a blender and blend on a low speed while slowly adding the oil in a thin stream until blended. You will have a light lotion.
- Pour the lotion into a clean container.
To use, massage a small amount into your skin. Because it‘s largely aloe-based, this lotion sinks into your skin quickly and absorbs well. It does a great job of moisturising without making your skin feel greasy.
