While in college a friend a told me she takes a kelp supplement because it is good for the skin.  I started taking it, but never really got into a habit of doing so.  A big mistake I made was I started taking it without even doing some research as to what kelp or any seaweed really does. I also researched kelp, which is known to give skin a healthy glow, when used in a powder form it exfoliates and is good for face masks. It removes surface impurities and toxins.  Recently I got into the habit of taking the kelp, but it has not been long enough to be sure that it is doing anything.  The kelp supplement I have is in a tablet that can be opened up.  In the near future, I plan on opening a tablet or two and mixing it with extra virgin olive oil (because of the amazing things I recently discovered it does) and making myself a mask.  When I do I will let you all know how it went.

Have any of you every used seaweed?  Were there any positive results?
