Let me introduce you to my best-kept beauty secret – the collagen of the sea.
What is Sea Moss?
Spoiler alert – it’s not actually a moss. Sea moss is a seaweed that grows in plenty on the Atlantic coastline of Ireland. It’s a type of red algae, scientifically known as Chondrus crispus.
This seaweed is packed with life-enhancing nutrients such as iodine, protein, sulfur compounds, beta-carotene, bromine, iron, calcium, manganese, iodine, selenium, potassium, zinc, B-vitamins, magnesium, and vitamin C.
Here's the thing. The body is made up of 102 minerals, and sea moss contains 92 of those. Better yet, 18 nutrients are essential to your body, and this seaweed provides 15 of them.
Sea Moss Benefits for Skin
- Protects the skin by balancing its microbiome
Sea moss is rich in sulfur – contains antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial functions. As such, it can help balance the skin microbiome.
Our skin hosts millions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi that comprise the skin microbiota. Similar to the one’s in our gut, these micro-organisms play crucial roles in protecting the skin against invading pathogens, educating our immune system, and breaking down natural products.
Sea moss will ensure these guests are always happy, this protecting your skin against all elements.
- Improves various skin conditions
Nobody deserves to have embarrassing patches of skin or dark spots. Do you have eczema, or scarring as a result? It’s time to get you some new skin you can show off when summertime comes.
Eczema is a form of atopic dermatitis caused by an overreacting immune system. I’ve heard people advised to exfoliate, but with eczema, you probably don’t want to break the skin.
Again, most soaps contain harsh detergents, cleansing oils, fragrances, and artificial detergents that tend to worsen this issue.
The anti-bacterial properties of sea moss make it effective at fighting P. Acne bacteria. As such, it may reduce the severity of acne in people affected by this condition.
And that’s not all. Sea moss also helps soothe the following skin conditions;
- Flaky skin
- Hydrates the skin
Sea moss is nothing short of a hero ingredient. Skin care brands adore it, as it is a skincare powerhouse.
Irish moss is non-comedogenic and richcly hydrating. This seaweed helps to impart moisture to dry and irritated skin. Besides, it aids healthy skin to remain supple and hydrated.
- Helps to exfoliate the skin gently
Exfoliating involves removing dead skin cells from your skin’s surface using a chemical, exfoliator, or granular substance.
Every 30 days or so, your skin automatically sheds dead skin cells to make room for new ones. But, sometimes the dead cells don’t shed completely and could result in dry, flaky patches and clogged pores.
Besides removing dead skin, regular exfoliation increases the skin's radiance, clarity, and youthfulness. And there’s more.
Other benefits of exfoliating with sea moss include;
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
- Unclogs pores
- Evens skin tone
- Increases cell turnover
- Stimulates collagen synthesis
- Boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage
Sea Moss Benefits for Hair
- Moisturizes the scalp
Dandruff happens when your scalp is too dry.
Your scalp has sebaceous glands, whose work is to produce sebum. Sebum is an oily, waxy substance that coats, moisturizes, and protects your skin – it is the primary ingredient in what we call the body's natural oils.
But sometimes, lack of vitamin A might disrupt the production of sebum. You’ll love to know that Sea Moss contains Vitamin A, which boosts sebum production, soothing your scalp around the clock.
And did you know the secret to shiny, glossy hair? Well, according to Matthew Guilin, a master stylist, you get shiny hair when the natural oils from your scalp are evenly distributed within your hair.
- Conditions the hair
When you wash your hair with shampoo, it opens up the hair cuticles. And that’s why you need a conditioner afterward.
Sea moss is the best conditioner for your hair as it is packed with nutrients and minerals that will improve your hair's overall health.
As a hair conditioner, Sea moss seals up the open cuticles, locking in the nutrients and blocking out the pollutants. As a result, it strengthens your hair shafts, preventing breakage, split ends, and hair loss.
- Promotes hair growth & prevents loss
Sea moss is loaded with vitamin E, which boosts hair growth. This vitamin combats oxidative stress, a notorious cause of hair loss.
Insufficient iron is another cause of hair loss. Given that Irish moss is a rich source of iron, it effectively prevents loss of hair and cures your iron deficiency at the same time.
Also, sea moss contains sulfur, proven to prolong your hair's growing phase (before resting and shedding). A longer growing phase means longer hair.
Although hair growth is mostly a genetic predisposition, you can maintain the hair you have by adding this nutrient-dense seaweed to your hair care regiment.
As we wrap it up, remember that your skin and hair exude not only what you put on them, but what you put in your body as well. As such, you must eat the right foods and drink plenty of water. Luckily, you can incorporate sea moss into your diet, especially in smoothies.
