The oceans hold many mysteries— including beauty secrets that have been revered for centuries
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.
