Secret Ingredient: Why Algae Is The Answer To Gorgeous Skin

Ever notice how your skin feels post-spa-good after a day spent catching waves? You’re not imagining it: According to a slew of studies, the key to healthy skin (and hair, too!) lies in the deep blue sea.

Marine algae (or more commonly, seaweed), in all its incarnations – mainly blue, green, brown and red – has the power to combat acne, brighten skin, and reverse the signs of aging. Since it wields a massive supply of mineral elements and antioxidants it makes for a potent face-saving cocktail when fused with other active ingredients.

But don’t take our word for it — give these algae-rich beauty products a shot and sea for yourself.
