Healthy Living: Seaweed in Skincare

There are always "trendy" ingredients and techniques cycling through the cosmetic industry. Some become popular because they introduce an exciting new tool or process that spices up boring skincare routines. Others seem to explode on the scene because they contain ingredients that actually work! As natural skincare has become more common, super ingredients like seaweed have been put in the spotlight as the biggest trends to watch.

Marine algae has become the subject of many cosmetic studies. Scientists have found that seaweed can be used for lightening dark spots and for rejuvenating the collagen within skin. This helps keep skin looking youthful and refreshed. Seaweed can even help treat acne and Rosacea.

How does seaweed help our skin? Seaweed is full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well as vitamins A, B, C, and E. When used in skincare, these powerful properties can help calm irritated skin and decrease inflammation.
