Hi Andy, my name is Odette. I have been in the beauty indusrty for 20 yrs. Seaweed is very good for the skin. It has alot of minerals in it. It is very detoxifying. I have not ever treated acne with just seaweed. First, depending on how bad your acne is, please make sure not to pick anything on your face. You can spread bacteria, making the condition worse. Microdermabrasion & IPL treatments are a sure way to be rid of acne. Make sure your diet is good & you are drinking alot of water. No product/treatment can work if you are not looking after yourself. You might start by getting an extraction facial wher they remove blackheads and pimples. Make sure to moisturize, alot of oil is produces if you are drying your skin out too much. For more info, please visit my website at professionalskincaretips.comHas anyone tried seaweed as a possible solution to acne? I've been researching - found information at aalgo.com/index.html (specifically aalgo.com/facial-treatments.html) - but would like to hear if anyone has any experience first hand.
