Skin Benefits of Seaweed

Seaweed is a form of algae that grows in the sea. Its color varies from red, green, brown and even black. They’re a food source for ocean life and have also found their way to our table. Besides their aesthetics, the different pigments are also well known for their biological effects. Seaweed contains vitamins A, C, E and K, along with folate, zinc, sodium, and magnesium. The effects on your skin are well-documented and have been used in coastal countries for centuries.

Seaweed on the skin

Seaweed also possesses a great antioxidant capacity and proven anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants can make unstable substances in your body called free radicals less responsive and volatile. In addition to containing a range of vitamins, seaweed possess a number of valuable plant compounds like flavonoids and carotenoids which shields your skin from free radical damage.

Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

The amino acids that seaweeds contain can help maintain your skin’s soft and supple appearance, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. With anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties that help heal your skin, seaweed is the proverbial fountain of youth that makes your skin look and feel younger. Seriously, the most powerful thing you’ve probably heard about seaweed is the anti-aging properties.

Seaweed is loaded with humectants that draw in moisture from the environment. It also contains vitamin E is great for keeping the skin hydrated.

Reduce acne breakouts

The natural minerals that seaweed contains, which include omega, zinc and magnesium, form a barrier to shield the skin from harsh climates which effectively reduces acne breakout. It also assists with the healing process of the skin, eradicating infections in the process.
