Seaweed and Algae in Ethnic Skin Care

When you think about your trips to the beach and see the seaweed washing up onto the shore, for most of you the last thing you're thinking about is how great this is going to be for your skin. You side step the seaweed, but when you look at sea water you're looking at how protein rich the algae is and how it's used to restore your body's natural chemical balance. It's been shown that sea water and blood plasma have an almost identical composition. This makes sea water the perfect solution when it comes to replenishing the minerals in your body.

Algae and Seaweed, How Does It Work With Ethnic Skin

Algae and seaweed which is type of algae contains strong antioxidants and it also has a variety of beneficial vitamins that can help protect your skin from the free radicals (hot sun, air and exhaust pollution). Free radicals are components that can attach and damage your skin. When you look at algae, you're looking at a part of what mother nature has given you and allowed to rise up from the shores of the sea and it can be used as a healing modality when it comes to healing your skin (face or body).

When you look at products that contain what nature has for us, you're looking at sea salts and mud in addition to the algae. There are toners now that have seaweed, sea salt, tea tree oils and blue green algae. When you couple these together with essential oils, you'll have the components of what make up a very nurturing skin toner for balancing out your complexion.

You also have body gels that contain sea weed and they're composed of heavy creams and light weight gels that help to minimize the appearance of cellulite. There are also ingredients in clay masks and when you have an organic seaweed that's coupled with clay, you've got a product that can remove dead skin cells and tighten up your skin so it's got a radiant glow.

Everyone is familiar with dead sea salts. There's nothing like a wonderful bath that's part of your nurturing treatments when you add some dead sea salts and orange essential oil, this gives you a nice relaxing bath for you to immerse yourself into. When you look at nature and what it has to offer you from the sea, these are just a few of the products and ingredients that are now a part of what you're seeing on your shelves and what's being targeted to you as the Ethnic Skin market when it comes to skin care products.

That's it for this week,

As Always ...
