Seaweed’s natural, anti-inflammatory compounds can have a positive affect on acne explosions. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is caused by release of sebum, or oils, which prevent the skin from drying. Pimples are inflammations of the skin pores, which trap the oil, resulting in blackheads or whiteheads, deeper pimples or cystic acne. Seaweed’s anti-inflammatory effect reduces the swelling of the explosion. It is also can be used as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, which can block pores.
