We all love the ocean, we love to sea the blue waves ( pun intended ) and feel the sand beneath our toes.
But did you know that the ocean can provide more than just a relaxing view …
Ingredients from the ocean.
Algae ~ Chock full of nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and peptides that can help draw toxins from the skin. It is an AMAZING ingredient full of incredible benefits for your skin because it conditions, hydrates, softens and detoxifies your skin, along with replenishes essential vitamins and minerals. This is the main ingredient in My fun hydro-jelly masks.
Dead sea salt ~ Soothes and reduces Skin Inflammation such as acne inflammation and inflammation associated with sunburns, eczema & psoriasis patches. It detoxes your skin pores by driving out all the gunk including dead cells, dirt, pollution, stale sebum and germs that collect and form acne, blackheads and white heads. Helps hydrate your skin thus improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also help prevent ingrown hairs.
Seaweed ~ A mix of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants that can benefit your skin. The antioxidants in seaweed can help prevent free radical damage to the skin and protect against skin aging, seaweed can also help moisturize and calm the skin. It is also good at combating acne and promote tissue regeneration, boosting the skins elasticity. Leaves your skin feel soft and refreshed.
Sea Kelp ~ Rich in vitamins and minerals, Sea Kelp works to repair damage to the skin by replenishing protein. That, together with the fact that it also helps support natural collagen production, makes it powerful wrinkle-fighter plus it will even give you a little glow boost too. Its anti-inflammatory properties also make it the perfect blemish treatment.
Now if you didn’t notice the the common factor between all these ocean derived ingredients, it was that fact that they are all high in minerals, vitamins and antioxidants.
These make anyone of them a great add on to your skin care routine.
You can find many skin care lines that includes these ingredients, I personally love the seaweed mask from lush.

The earth supplies us with many wonderful ingredients, we must only open our eyes and look for them. Lets try our best to use Eco friendly and cruelty free products, or even re-cycle or re-use your empty beauty products because from plastic containers to chemical ingredients, we may add to the ever growing pollution problem.
Every small change counts 🐚
