Our skin is our first shield against external aggressions, but it is easily weakened. Algae are effective plants that are very resistant to the aquatic environment that surrounds them.
Nature spoils us !
Our body is composed of 70% water. When we come into contact with an algae that grows in water, our skin is its element ! Microalgae keep the vitamins and amino acids of sea water in highly concentrated samples. Faced with constant changes in pressure and temperature, the dryness and exposure to UV rays are maximum. This is why these microalgae have developed mechanisms to repair themselves.
The active ingredients extracted from algae have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine. Its benefits are multiple. They are rich in amino acids to keep the skin toned, in mineral salts that repair the cells, in trace elements that are antioxidants and anti-inflammatory and in vitamins.
Our advices of usage

Red seaweed is used for its moisturizing and remineralizing properties, brown seaweed moisturizes and detoxifies the skin, blue seaweed is used for its anti-aging action, and green seaweed contains magnesium, which protects against UV rays. Regardless of the variety, the appearance of the skin is more plump and smooth.
Our face is ringed, tired and dull? We will use seaweed powder as a mask or we will use a red seaweed treatment which will act in depth on the skin and will give a new brightness to the complexion.
