At The Skin and Body Refinery, we soon be introducing body wrap services, one of which is the Seaweed Body Wrap and at this time we would like to relate the advantages to indulging in this treatment.
What Are Spa Seaweed Body Wraps?
When you spot seaweed at the beach, the first impulse may be to wrinkle your nose because it looks gross, but this stringy and slimy plant of the sea holds powerful ingredients that benefit your skin. When getting the seaweed wrap, more often than not, the seaweed is prepared with hot water, in some cases essential oils, along with clay and other skin care ingredients. Once the seaweed has been manipulated into a paste, the mixture is spread all over your body. Following that step, specially heated towels, sheets, or blankets cover the body to allow the paste to be absorbed into the skin. Once the process is complete, you are cleaned up and refreshed. The seaweed body wrap offers a number of benefits for the skin and overall health.
Benefits of Seaweed Body Wraps
Below, you will find a few examples of how the seaweed body wrap treatment is extraordinarily beneficial.
1) Detoxifies: The number one benefit is the detoxifying capabilities the seaweed wrap offers. Eliminating toxins from your body, the seaweed wrap extracts impurities from the body. After the seaweed paste is applied, the heated covering causes you to sweat for approximately 30 minutes. As your body sweats, the seaweed draws the toxins out. By the end of the treatment, the impurities are brought to the surface of the skin, where it is then rinsed away as the wrap is being washed off.
2) Dead Skin is Exfoliated and Healthy Skin Moisturized: The dead skin cells that reside on the surface of your skin prevents a lot of the needed moisture to condition the skin. Not only are the toxins being removed from your body during the sweating process of the seaweed wrap, but the dead skin is exfoliated as well. When the dead skin barrier is removed, the seaweed can deliver the proteins, vitamins, minerals and lipids into the skin to restore the moisture you need.
3) Skin’s Elasticity and Regeneration Improves: Skin will lose the ability to stretch and return back to normal over time. The results are typically stretch marks and wrinkles. Contributing to rebuilding the elasticity of the skin is the antioxidants, essential fatty acids and vitamin A contained in the seaweed. In addition to rebuilding the elasticity of your skin, the skin becomes suppler because of increasing blood flow to its surface, which regenerates damaged skin cells, produces collagen to firm and tone the skin; resulting in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.
4) Improves Body Contouring and Reduces Cellulite: A seaweed wrap can help with body contouring, especially for those that recently lost weight and have excess skin. By direct diffusion of vitamins and minerals, the seaweed helps shape the excess skin, making it appear smoother and less noticeable. A seaweed wrap has the potential to help reduce the undesirable marks it leaves on the skin, such as cellulite.
