Algae are a real panacea for our body and our beauty, and their use for thalassotherapy treatments has been practiced. Today their use is best known for treating cellulite and the imperfections that afflict our skin. Seaweed absorbs and concentrates the mineral substances dissolved in the water, enclosing: minerals, trace elements, vitamins, enzymes and proteins. They possess unique regenerating properties as they contain an incomparable richness of vital substances, are ideal for our skin and our body, have moisturizing and purifying properties, and normalize the secretory activity of the sebaceous glands.
They carry an antioxidant protective activity against free radicals and stimulate skin tropism. It is possible to treat various imperfections successfully: all forms of cellulite, localized fat, water retention, toning of the skin tissue and impurities. The iodine contained in algae naturally stimulates the thyroid gland, favoring a better restoration of metabolic efficiency, spontaneous weight loss, and adipose tissue reduction. The sea has always been a source of well-being. Therefore, constant and regular use of algae allows to obtain evident results on the appearance of the skin and triggers a positive psychophysical rebalancing mechanism.
Algae are mainly composed of colloidal polysaccharides, water-soluble substances, which in contact with water exert their hygroscopic action, forming gels. The characteristic of these gels is retaining lipid substances, mineral salts, sugars and organic acids as in the mesh of a network. The gels first release water by osmotic action in contact with the stratum corneum. Mineral salts and gradually the other molecules, by the same principle as the waste substances of cellular metabolism, are recalled towards the superficial layers.
This detoxifying action is essential to restore breath to sclerotic tissues by triggering a process of regeneration and revitalization. The algae used must express a very high biological value. That is, they must not be sophisticated or chemically altered products. They must not contain preservatives, surfactants, antioxidants, rheological modifiers, emulsifiers, stabilizers, additives, dyes, or other chemicals.
They must be pure algae powders or algae of various sizes dehydrated at low temperatures. They must be collected in clean waters and subject to tidal excursions. They must be subjected to controls on heavy metals and bacteriological analysis. The wraps with seaweed leaves reduce the swelling and imperfections of cellulite, providing a sensation of extreme, pleasant and persistent well-being. Legs and ankles deflate and become light, and cellulite marks are progressively reduced.
They improve circulation, drain toxins and reduce localized fat. The execution of the bandage is effortless as well as practical. The dry seaweed leaves are immersed in water for about 1 hour to recover and completely rehydrate. The legs are wrapped, keeping the leaves in place for about 20 minutes with a transparent film. Finally, the leaves are removed and rinsed. The result will be surprising from the first application.
The Use Of Algae Against Cellulite
” You have to drink seawater, bathe in it, and eat all marine things in which the virtue of the sea is concentrated “. Feeding on the riches of the sea, algae concentrate the properties of the marine environment up to 50,000 times. Hence the origin and the well-known extraordinary nature of their benefits when they become the main ingredient of cosmetic products for the care, beauty and well-being of the person. Algae keep their properties intact if selected, harvested, dried, and treated in the right way.
They can tone, smooth, and moisturize the tissues, favor their drainage, regulate their hydrolipidic balance, and delay aging. Seaweed, also used successfully in cooking and herbal medicine as food supplements, contain minerals and trace elements in abundance: iodine, up to 1% of their dry weight, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, aluminum, manganese, phosphorus, copper, nickel, gold, zinc, sulfur, cobalt, strontium, titanium, vanadium, tin, rubidium, silicon. These marine plants have rightly been called “seawater concentrates’ ‘. Algae also contain vitamins (A, B, C, D1, D2, E, F, K, PP), amino acids (glutamic acid, cystine, methionine, leucine, valine, tyrosine, lysine, aspartic acid), carbohydrates, fats, lots of chlorophyll, mucilage, antibiotic substances, etc.
