As part of your nourishing diet and daily skin care routine, we suggest adding the superfood spirulina. In this article, we explore how you can get glowing with spirulina, how it may enhance your health and also your skin. First of all, let's find out exactly why spirulina features so strongly in our holistic skincare rituals.
Spirulina For Skin CareSpirulina offers detoxifying, purifying and exfoliating benefits. We have blended spirulina with sea salt, to help gently remove dry, scaly skin, unclog your pores and stimulate your blood circulation. Our Spirulina Salt Scrub is a luxuriously creamy formula with hydrating Olive Squalane which helps your skin feel silky and smooth. Furthermore, we have added Australian Lemon Myrtle to our Spirulina Salt Scrub to give you an antibacterial effect to help with acne, ingrown hairs and dry skin.
Superfood For Your SkinSpirulina is a popular blue-green alga known as a superfood for cell growth and repair and healer for your skin. Spirulina's excellent omega-6 essential fatty acid content may help enormously with the structural integrity of your skin. While essential fatty acids play a beneficial role in promoting healthy skin, they are especially helpful if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or any other inflammatory skin or inflammatory health condition or suffer from any skin sensitivities. Antioxidants are abundant in spirulina which is useful for fighting free radicals. Above all, free radicals may contribute to older looking skin, so by applying spirulina to your skin and enjoying it in your diet, you will be helping your skin and body produce new healthy cells faster which may leave your skin looking fresher, younger and glowing.
Health Benefits Of SpirulinaThe health benefits of spirulina are never-ending. Spirulina is full of highly beneficial nutrients which may offer your skin and your body many health benefits. As a superfood supplement, spirulina is an excellent source of vitamin B12, a nutrient required by all of us for healthy red blood cells, especially if you are a vegan. Other nutrients found in spirulina include iron, protein, essential amino acids, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin. We are such a fan of our daily shot of spirulina. Although the taste can be off-putting for some, the health benefits are well worth it. If you dislike the taste, there are tablets available, or we find a blend of super greens mixed with probiotics from Amazonia delicious. Many suggest spirulina may help with the following health conditions.
- Blood Sugar Levels
- Weight Loss
- Skin Issues
