Using Algae for Skin Care
Powdered algae used for smoothies are also good for skin care. Homemade face masks that include algae help to clear the pores and firm and tone the skin. The powder can be mixed with ingredients such as olive oil, honey, and avocado so that it will stick to the skin. After applying, the mask should be allowed to sit on the skin for about an hour for maximum effectiveness. Masks may also be effective at minimizing the appearance of scars.
