Seaweed properties and benefits
Seaweed (Fucus Vesiculosus) is rich in minerals, vitamins B1, B12 and C, proteins, mucilaginous substances rich in glucides, trace elements, polyphenols and other moisturising substances.
Seaweed helps to improve the natural moisturising factor of the skin due to its iodine, polysaccharides, lipids and alginic acid content.
When used on the skin, seaweed extract acts as a toner, moisturiser and softener, as well as improving the appearance of cellulite due to its firming action.
Does Seaweed help with cellulite?
The topical application of seaweed is the most common method of using seaweed to treat cellulite, usually in the form of body wrap or in a bath. A seaweed bath stimulates blood flow and helps the body get rid of excess fluids. A seaweed wrap encourages you to sweat, which causes toxins to leave the body. You might find that many therapists use Seaweed in their massage treatment. The Seaweed treatment creates radical cellular stimulation with the therapist using deep tissue techniques applied to the cellulite site.
How does it work?
Cellulite is deposits of fat and toxins trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. Seaweed penetrates these layers, shaking up the fatty tissue and boosting circulation to help expel the cellulite.
