HEAL THE SKIN WITH SEAWEED

By Nateisha Scott

The natural and healing ingredient that saves all skin types. Seaweed is a powerful ingredient that will protect and heal blemish-prone skin. Infused within products, seaweed will hydrate, nourish and moisturise your complexion.

WHAT IS SEAWEED?

Seaweed is probably as natural as it gets and whilst skincare has evolved there are many benefits for the skin when it comes to natural skincare ingredients. Grown in abundance in the oceans, seaweed is a natural source of amino acids, vitamins and minerals and with anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties, seaweed helps to heal the skin. Coming in three main categories of colour, between green, brown and red, the difference between them being the pigmentation of their skin but this gives each fragment a unique and natural ability to hydrate and repair the skin.

THE BENEFITS OF SEAWEED ON THE SKIN?

Seaweed helps from hydration to evening skin pigmentation. For hydration, seaweed is full of humectants that draws the moisture from the environment and vitamin E which is great for hydrating the complexion. The natural minerals infused within seaweed which include omega, zinc and magnesium protects the skin from harsh weather which then helps the complexion to heal.

Also, with healing properties, seaweed has anti-inflammatory properties which will maintain protection against further breakouts once cleared. Being able to remove dead skin cells, seaweed hydrates the skin and then forms a barrier that protects the skin from further dirt and infection.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
