Have You Ever Tried Some Seaweed On Your Face?

I love using facial masks and have been learning to enjoy wraps too. But I certainly can not afford to go to the spa. It's just not in the budget no matter how or where we juggle things. So I am finding great ways to enjoy facials and wraps at home.

Azara Organics sent me a jar of Organic Seaweed Powder to try out as a facial and body wrap. It's been an interesting experience!

Before I tell you what I have personally experienced, here is some specific info from the company:
REDISCOVER WHAT SILKY SMOOTH AND SOFT SKIN FEELS LIKE. Our Organic Seaweed Powder is Perfect for a Revitalizing, Age-Defying Facial Mask or Cellulite Reducing Body Wrap. 
DID YOU KNOW? A Seaweed Wrap or Facial Mask has been a Popular Treatment Available at Deluxe European Spas. Now You Can Enjoy 20+ Treatments from Just One Jar in the Comfort of Your Home!
DON'T COMPROMISE YOUR HEALTH OR SKIN WITH PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN CHEMICALS. Our Organic Seaweed Powder is Wild Harvested Straight From the Coldest Parts of the North Atlantic and then Micronized into a Fine Powder for Maximum Absorption and Assimilation.
SENSITIVE SKIN, RASHES, DRYNESS OR ACNE, THIS WILL HELP YOU. Our Seaweed Powder is Packed with Vitamins, Minerals, Trace elements, and Amino Acids that are Essential in Maintaining Healthy and Youthful Skin.

The first thing I want to tell you is that the powder has a very strong seaweed smell (obviously) so you need to be aware that it smells very much like you are near the ocean. It's quite strong! As someone who can not eat seafood, it was a little tough for me to deal with. I do recommend you mix it well since the powder can clump a little and you do want it to be as smooth as possible for easier spreading on your skin.

The second thing is that it is very easy to mix. You simply mix warm water with the powder and add a few drops of essential oil (this helps lighten the seaweed smell a lot). Once the essential oil is added it makes such a wonderful difference I find it much easier to use. It looks and feels a little goopy, but it is worth it!

Applying to my face is simple and feels great with the warmth of the mixture. I just love the way it makes my whole face relax and feel rejuvenated! You only need to leave it on for 10-15 minutes, so it does not completely dry up. Removing it is a simple process, just use warm water and a wet cloth. I like doing it in the shower. That's the same, of course for doing a body wrap.

So far I have done my arms and it has been lovely. I simply used the mixture of seaweed powder, warm water and essential oil on my skin and then wrapped with damp towels. It was very soothing and relaxing. I'm looking forward to convincing my husband to help me with a body wrap for my back. I know it will feel wonderful!

Using the Azara Organics Seaweed Powder reminds me of the time I got to spend at a 5 star spa in San Francisco! It's relaxing and when I am done I feel wonderful and refreshed! I think this is something many would sincerely enjoy!
