Se­crets of the Sea Mod­ern com­pa­nies are learn­ing what is­land cul­tures have known for cen­turies— the oceans hold an in­cred­i­ble ar­ray of skin- sav­ing se­crets.

Beauty prod­ucts in­fused with el­e­ments of the sea have a spa- like qual­ity and boast an abun­dance of skin- lov­ing nu­tri­ents. Here are a few of our fa­vorites:

1 Re­store your skin overnight with One Love Or­gan­ics Love Springs Eter­nal Youth Preser­va­tion Serum. This lightweight oil con­tains blue sea kale, a marine plant that soothes and re­vi­tal­izes skin, and pro­tein- rich sea al­gae, which mois­tur­izes and im­proves skin tone and firm­ness. Bar­bary fig plant stem cells and a botan­i­cal ac­tive ex­tracted from date seeds plump fine lines and wrin­kles.

2 Re­lax and ease sore mus­cles with Farm­house Fresh Lemon­grass Ocean Min­eral Bath Soak. Fine At­lantic sea salt and pink Himalayan and Ep­som min­eral salts are scented with stress- re­liev­ing or­ganic green tea, lemon myr­tle, rose­hips, and hibis­cus. The wa­ter will feel silky and so will your skin.

3 Re­pair, nour­ish, and pro­tect your skin from the sun with MyChelle’s Daily De­fense Cream with SPF 17. This mul­ti­tasker com­bines a mois­tur­izer with sun pro­tec­tion. Astaxanthin from vol­canic ocean sea­weed strength­ens and pro­tects skin against free rad­i­cals, while beta- glu­can from oats hy­drates and soothes, and zinc ox­ide pro­vides broad- spec­trum sun pro­tec­tion.

4 The com­bi­na­tion of bam­boo and pumice gives Sea- el Co­conut Kiwi Face Scrub its ex­fo­li­a­tion power. This spa- like scrub also fea­tures a mix of skin- bright­en­ing in­gre­di­ents— fer­mented kelp, kiwi fruit, co­conut oil, green tea pow­der, and av­o­cado oil. Use it to re­move dead skin cells that clog pores and ex­pose new ones for a nat­u­ral glow.

5 Re­move im­pu­ri­ties and soften skin with Sea­weed Bath Co. Ex­fo­li­at­ing Detox Scrub. Or­ganic blad­der­wrack sea­weed nat­u­rally detox­i­fies and hy­drates. An­tiox­i­dant green cof­fee bean ex­tract helps detox­ify. French clay draws im­pu­ri­ties from the skin. And wal­nut shells gen­tly re­move dead skin.

6 Tighten and re­ju­ve­nate the skin around your eyes with Acure Bright­en­ing Eye Con­tour. Sea­weed and hibis­cus ex­tracts in this lightweight treat­ment gel in­tensely hy­drate the del­i­cate eye area. Ar­gan ex­tract, witch hazel, and aloe eas­ily ab­sorb to cool and soothe frag­ile skin.
