What’s Up with Seaweed?

What’s Up with Seaweed?

According to Livestrong.com, “Seaweed may look gross when you spot it on the beach, but this slippery, stringy sea plant contains powerful ingredients that can benefit your skin.” Spa Space, widely known as one of the best spas in Chicago when it comes to body treatments, skincare, men’s spa services, women’s spa services, spa parties, spa day packages, couples spa day and more, harnesses the power of seaweed in its Green Tea & Ginger Detoxifying Seaweed Body Wrap.

Seaweed has many superpowers. As Livestrong.com points out, it:

“Detoxifies – A seaweed wrap helps to eliminate toxins from your body. The paste is applied to the body warm, causing you to sweat. During the sweating process, your body is eliminating impurities. These are then brought to the surface of the skin and rinsed away when the wrap is washed off.
“Removes Dead Skin and Moisturizes -Dead skin prevents your body from absorbing moisture. While you sweat during a seaweed wrap, not only are toxins removed from the body, but dead skin is loosened as well. The seaweed itself is chock full of proteins, vitamins, minerals and lipids that easily soak into the skin to add moisture.

“Improves Skin Elasticity and Regeneration – Over time, your skin loses the ability to stretch and return to normal. This can lead to stretch marks and wrinkles. Seaweed contains antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin A, all of which can help to rebuild the elasticity of the skin. It also makes your skin more supple by increasing blood flow to its surface, regenerates damaged skin cells, produces collagen to firm and tone the skin, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

“Reduces Cellulite and Improves Body Contouring – If you’ve recently lost weight and have excess skin, a seaweed wrap can help with body contouring. It aids in shaping the excess skin so it’s smoother and less noticeable by direct diffusion of vitamins and minerals. Additionally, if cellulite is a problem, a seaweed wrap may help reduce the undesirable marks it leaves on the skin.”
