This has the potential to help acne, seborrhea, and rosacea-related changes to the skin.”

  • Bowl
  • Strainer

  • Storage container

Steps for Making This DIY Microcurrent Conductive Gel

  1. Soak a handful or 1 cup of the sea moss in purified water, ensuring it’s fully submerged, and let it sit undisturbed for 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Once the time is up, drain and rinse the seaweed.
  3. Next, add the seaweed and a cup of purified water to the blender.
  4. Blend the mixture until it’s fully emulsified, adding water as needed.
