Irish Moss once saved thousands of Irish from starvation during the potato famine of the mid-19th century. It is a curly red, purple, or yellow green plant which is found clinging to submerged rocks. This seaweed grows in tidal pools along the northern Atlantic. When Irish Moss is used externally, it softens and soothes the skin. Use it on your wrinkles and any dark circles under your eyes! Also it reduces the effects of sunburn, chapped skin, eczema, psoriasis, and other rashes.
