Whether you’re landlocked and not mad about it or an ocean-worshiping child of the sea, you can appreciate the wealth of beauty benefits the ocean has to offer. And we’re not just talking sea salt—no, we’re diving deeper to unlock the hidden treasures that work wonders on the skin.
Keep reading to see which sea ingredients you should be incorporating into your skincare routine!
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. And it will even give you a little glow boost too.
Red Algae is a healer. It hydrates while calming skin and smoothing surface lines. Because of its natural healing properties, Red Algae should be the moisturizing ingredient of choice for sensitive skin types and even acne-prone skin, as it won’t clog pores.
Look to Brown Algae to restore skin firmness and elasticity. It builds an age-defying skin barrier, while also improving the skin’s ability to pull in and balance moisture. Plus, it’s anti-inflammatory, which never hurts.
Add Brown Algae into your routine with SK-II’s Signs Up-Lifter ($270) or Orgo’s California Essentials West Coast Sea Algae Therapy Moisturizer Crème ($90).
Caviar is a very potent ingredient in the anti-aging arsenal. It combats loss of firmness, provides hydration, and regenerates skin. Having a taste for the finer things in life could equate to wrinkles being softened, skin being lifted, and signs of aging slowing down.
Seaweed contains a combination of therapeutic vitamins and minerals, but its real star quality is its ability to protect against harmful environmental factors. It strengthens the epidermal barrier of the skin to lock in the good stuff and keep out the bad.
