Spirulina is a microscopic aquatic algae of freshwater. It contains several proteins, vitamins and nutritious herbal ingredients, as well as rare good fatty acids (e.g. gamma-linolenic acid), antioxidants, trace elements and minerals.
Because of the nutrients, spirulina could be called the food of the future. It has lovely blue-green colour. The blue colour is due to a protein called phycocyanin and the green colour is due to chlorophyll.
The treatment begins with exfoliation to remove the dead cells from the skin. Thereafter, spirulina is applied either in the form of mask or soaked in special gauzes, which cover the entire body for better absorption.
It is an ideal treatment for cellulite and body detoxification.
