I recently became a fan of Algenist skincare. The line uses alguronic acid, from microalgae, as one of their main ingredients in all of their skincare products. This acid demonstrated significant anti-aging properties when compared to other anti-aging ingredients. It minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, firms the skin and makes skin appear smoother and more radiant looking. Alguronic acid has been shown to increase firmness of skin by 32% and to decrease hyperpigmentation by 26%!
Algae detoxifies and nourishes the skin.
The Algae Brightening Mask is a luxurious mask that harnesses a rich composition of two types of algae, microalgae and macroalgae. It exfoliates the skin with leaves from sea kelp. Blue-green algae with a silt base creates a visibly more radiant and even toned complexion. The formula is designed to brighten, smooth and hydrate the skin while also pampering it. This mask also instantly brightens the skin, it immediately looks more hydrated, feels smoother and appears more even toned and more radiant looking. *100% of those subjects tested noticed that it smoothed skin, 98% said that it brightened the complexion and 98% said that this mask visibly improved uneven skin texture (*self-assessment results seen in a test of 60 women after 3 applications of the mask in 10 days).
To use: smooth generously on cleansed skin in a circular motion. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Use up to 2x a week. This mask uses six different kinds of microalgae and macroalgae with many active ingredients in a water base. If you find water floating to the surface, stir it back into the formula and apply as directed.
Be sure to take a look at my review of the Algenist Purifying & Replenishing Cleanser (http://bit.ly/1rA17k9), my favorite cleanser!
