Because each facial treatment offers its own set of products and results, it’s important to know which facial treatment will be best for you, your skin, and your goals. Today, we are going to go over the basics and benefits of seaweed facials.

The Basics

You might have heard about seaweed or mermaid facials, they are one in the same. The defining factor of a seaweed facial is that a seaweed mask is used. Seaweed may seem like an odd addition to a facial mask, however it is rich in minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. And because seaweed grows in the ocean it contains almost every mineral found in the ocean.

Because the seaweed mask has such a concentrated dose of minerals and other beneficial elements, it is the perfect balance of rejuvenation and relaxation. Seaweed also has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties that not only lead to your skin feeling silky smooth, but also activates the blood and circulation under the skin. This stimulates the regeneration of cells the helps your body naturally flush out toxins while delivering fresh oxygen to the cells. The seaweed mask nourishes, hydrates, and tones tired, dry skin.

The facial will combine multiple complementary products that work together to provide the best results. You will also receive a massage that not only promotes relaxation, but also activates the restoring products on your skin.
