What is Thalassotherapy?

Thalassotherapy is a spa treatment that utilizes warm salt water and sea products to allow the skin to absorb trace minerals such as iodine, zinc, potassium and magnesium. 

It also increases blood and lymphatic circulation, boosts the immune system, reduces inflammation, detoxifies, and is antibacterial.
The word Thalassotherapy comes from the Greek words Thalassa, which means sea, and Therapeia, which means healing.

This ancient healing treatment includes hydrotherapy which includes soaking in sea water, applying sea water to the body, or soaking in a seaweed bath.

It also includes Algotherapy which is the application of algae and sea products to the body in the form of seaweed and mud wraps or masks. 

Sand exfoliating treatments are also a included  as Thalassotherapy.

Thalassotherapy is often used as a cellulite treatment because it is excellent for the elimination of toxins. Seaweed wraps are known for their anti cellulite properties. Apply sea mud to areas that have cellulite, wrap yourself with plastic wrap and let the seaweed do it's magic!

You can also experience Thalassotherapy at home by adding 2 cups of sea salt to a warm bathtub. You can also use seaweed powder in your warm bath. It is packed full of sea minerals to nourish and detoxify. Relax, soak for 20 minutes and be rejuvenated!

The best form of Thalassotherapy for me is a trip to Jamaica. Just let me float in the warm Caribbean Sea!

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.
