Seaweed – Cornwall’s secret ingredient
Next time you see a piece of seaweed, think of it as your skin’s new best friend.
We are so taken with the properties of seaweed, coupled with the fact that our shores are lined with it, that we use it in our spa. Both the AFYNA Rejuvenating Facial and the Detoxifying Facial use hand-harvested Cornish seaweed.
Seaweed is packed with all the goodness of minerals, amino acids and enzymes. Its skin healing and rejuvenating abilities work wonders for ageing skin as they promote tissue regeneration and improve skin’s elasticity. It has high quantities of B vitamins which protect the skin’s surface and reduce inflammation, so it’s very good for sensitive and allergy prone skin by reducing excessive irritation and redness.
Facials and masks can help maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance and have the ability to gently purify, detoxify and promote circulation. And seaweed’s high concentration of anti-bacterial properties are ideal in the treatment of acne as they draw out impurities and toxins and regulate the oil levels in your face.
