For hundreds of years, seaweed bathing has been a ritualistic tradition in the west of Ireland. In the old-fashioned seaweed bathhouses of the Atlantic coast, long, hot soaks are super-loaded with ribbons of the green stuff and pumped with seawater for a replenishing experience.
It’s an act of self-care that sounds that much more special and, well, cathartic, as lockdown measures limit access to the beach—so recreating the seaweed bathing experience at home is a thrilling prospect. Thankfully, it’s one that's possible thanks to sustainably-sourced seaweed skin-care brand Voya.
Whether you've been doing at-home pilates, have aches and pains from spending more time sedentary, or just want to give your body that just-got-back-from the beach buzz, an at-home seaweed soak is just the thing for some respite during quarantine.
