Chlorella: Take chlorella as a daily energy-giving supplement – the high fiber content of algae helps control insulin, while research from Japan shows that chlorella will also help to reduce blood glucose levels. Sun Chlorella A uses a micronizing technology, which makes it more easily digested by the body (victoriahealth.com).“ALGAE has excellent anti-inflammatory and ANTIOXIDANT qualities, perfect for SENSITIVE skin”
“Algae has to be resilient, growing as it does in extreme conditions,” says facialist Sarah Chapman, “so it has excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.”
Chapman’s Skinesis Instant Miracle Mask contains brown sea algae, which “strengthens collagen support in the skin to help lift and firm”. Another great buy is Chantecaille’s Vital Essence, an intensive moisture-boosting serum that combines seaweed with Vitamin C for a collagen boost.
THE BLEMISH BUSTER
Scientists at the University of Stirling have uncovered a fatty acid in algae that stops the growth of the acne bacteria. For inflamed, spot-prone skin, Estée Lauder uses algae in its Complexion Perfecting BB Creme, which is lightweight and helps to even out skin, or try Omorovicza Refining Facial Polisher, a blend of micro-algae with mineral-rich Hungarian moor mud. Let the emerald-green exfoliating mask dry onto skin, then rinse after two minutes for an ultra-smooth complexion.
THE SKIN HEALER
Crème de la Mer’s Miracle Broth, a fermented algae brew, has been
found to have skin-healing benefits. Find it at its highest level in The Concentrate, which revives traumatized skin – it is ideal after a skin peel or sun exposure.
THE SCALP SAVIOR
Thanks to a rich source of amino acids, algae extracts can help strengthen hair. Seaweed is at the heart of Sachajuan’s Ocean Silk technology, which contains two algae: rhodophycea and chondrus crispus (sea fennel). “We mix the algae together with other active ingredients to deliver valuable proteins and minerals to the hair,” says Sachajuan co-founder Sacha Mitic. “Research tells us it helps hair achieve a higher breaking point.” The payoff is stronger, shinier, healthier-looking hair that is easy to manage.
Meanwhile, scientists at Kanebo Cosmetics have blended kelp with oriental herbs to make Sensai Intensive Hair Mask. It helps restore hair after sun, sea and chlorine damage by feeding it with proteins and lipids to help smooth and repair.
