TRY A SEAWEED BATH TO RELAX AND SOOTHE YOUR SKIN

     After a long day shooting, I really wanted to take a nice, hot bath and relax. I usually don't indulge in baths, because they require a lot more water than a shower does, but every now and then I like to treat myself. 

    I have sensitive skin, and don't like to use common bath soaps or salts. I saw this Seaweed Bath Co. Detox Bath and decided to give it a try. 

 

     I already knew that seaweed has some amazing nutritional properties... Omega-3 fatty acids that help your heart and reduce inflammation; iodine, a mineral that is critical for healthy thyroid function; calcium (one serving of seaweed has more calcium than broccoli); it is almost as rich in proteins as legumes; and also includes vitamin B-12 and vitamin A.

     According to the Seaweed Bath Co website:  

 
For generations, cultures around the world have used the power of seaweed to help soothe irritated, flaking and scaling skin. Today, seaweed-based bath products are an integral part of both Thalassotherapy and Balneotherapy—holistic water-based therapies that help manage the skin conditions associated with psoriasis and eczema.

Today, The Seaweed Bath Co. sustainably harvests fresh bladderwrack seaweed off the coast of Maine to create the highest quality, all-natural products. Bladderwrack seaweed is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids found in your skin. Amino acids can help to hydrate dry skin and alleviate flaking, scaling and red skin often associated with certain skin conditions. Bladderwrack seaweed also contains fucoidan, a potent natural anti-inflammatory, and potassium and iodine, which stimulate the thyroid and help to detoxify the body. The nutrients in bladderwrack seaweed also increase pH alkaline levels in the bloodstream while simultaneously reducing acidity levels in the body and the skin.

Soaking in a seaweed bath allows your body to easily absorb a large amount of valuable nutrients, amino acids and oils that nourish the skin.

     I have to say, that after trying the Whole Seaweed Detox Bath, my skin feels amazingly soft. I didn't have any adverse reactions to the product either. As far as the anti-inflammatory and detoxifying claims, I can't give an accurate testimony... Further scientific tests would have to be conducted. I can say, however, that I absolutely loved my bath and felt like I was on a mini vacation to the beach in my tub.
