This is why you should have algae in your anti-aging beauty routine
And on your plate!
You’re already aware that the beach makes you more beautiful. What you may not know, however, is that there’s something that lives deep in the water that can boost your beauty big time: seaweed. Scientifically referred to as micro-algae, over 10,000 different species exist on this Earth, and seaweed was forecasted to be one of the biggest food trends for 2016. It’s also being included in many cosmetic products today, especially anti-aging ones. But why is this, and what makes these sea vegetables so special?
A cocktail of beauty benefits that lies under the sea
Seaweed is extremely nutrient-dense and packed with Vitamins A, B12, C and E. This powerful combination keeps you healthy, fights free radicals, helps with the cell turnover process, and keeps skin firm and younger looking.
One type of seaweed that is found in Greenland’s glacial waters, Alaria Esculenta, has been extensively researched for its anti-aging benefits. It is part of the wakame family, regenerates itself very quickly, can resist extreme conditions, and is known to speed up the anti-aging repair process. Its composition is similar to human skin, so it penetrates quickly and can boost skin metabolism up to 42% or more! It smooths fine lines and wrinkles at an accelerated rate, helping people get their youthful looks back fast!
Where can you find this magical ingredient? As an extract in Biotherm’s Blue Therapy Accelerated Serum, or in the new Blue Therapy Serum-in-Oil, where it’s referred to as the “Algae of Youth.” In just one use you’ll start to see visible results. However, include one of these serums in your daily beauty routine on a regular basis, and after one month your skin will feel much firmer, softer, and look more radiant.
How to include seaweed in your diet
Sea vegetables have been a staple in people’s diets for centuries, especially in the Asian culture. While seaweed may have become less popular over the years in the Western diet, many chefs are starting to include it in their menus again. Since your skincare products work even better when you’re nourishing your body with healthy foods, load up on more powerhouse ingredients like seaweed.
