When considering a vacation destination, many us of want to go to the beach. Beyond using the #sunsandsea hashtag, the sun, sand, and sea truly do something to our minds and bodies, and keeps us going back for more. Perhaps there is more to the #vitaminsea trend making its rounds? Certain skincare brands sure think so. From harnessing the restorative powers of sea kelp to carefully collecting algae extract for its anti-wrinkle properties, have a look at these 5 sea-sourced skincare products to try.
Tarte Mermaid Staycation Hydrating Skincare Set
Live the mermaid life you’ve always wanted, starting with skincare made just for you. The Tarte Mermaid Staycation Hydrating Skincare Set contains four superstar items. They are the Deluxe drink of H20 hydrating boost moisturiser, Travel-size mermaid skin hyaluronic H20 serum, Deluxe radiance drops, and Travel-size deep dive cleanser. Key ingredients include algae and marine plant extracts, hyaluronic acid, and Maracuja oil (extracted from passion fruit).
L’Or Rose Firming Oil
Stubborn cellulite marks got you feeling blue? Banish them with the power of Melvita’s ‘pink oil’ called L’Or Rose Firming Oil. It is made with special pink berries grown on the La Reunion island in France, that are known as a powerful stimulator for fat storage breakdown. The sea-sourced ingredient in this blend is Sea Buckthorn Berries. It is known for having high levels of vitamin C that help boost elasticity, hydration, and fight acne-causing bacteria.
Crème de la Mer
The French brand’s number one best-seller is the Crème de la Mer. It is made with the brand’s iconic Miracle Broth, which uses sea-sourced renewing energies. Algae extract, to be precise. Ideal for drier skin, this luxuriously rich cream deeply soothes, moisturises, and heals dryness. If that sounds like something you need, look no further.
Sea-tox Body Collection
Another set that would make a perfect gift to your mermaid-wannabe friend is the Bath and Body Works Sea-tox body collection. The main ingredient used is nourishing seaweed leaves. There are several items in the series including the Seaweed Body Cream, Seaweed Body Lotion, and Sea Mineral Shimmer Gel, among others. Packaged in mermaid-inspired bottle designs, these seaweed specialties smell refreshing, and work to soften and smoothen the skin for a “sea breeze soft” feel.
L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Serum
Should intense hydration and regeneration be your goal, then the L’Occitane Harmonie Divine Serum could be your new best friend. This ultra-rich serum contains more than 5,000 micro-drops of goodness made from combining two essential ingredients. They are the Immortelle Millésimeé, the flower that never fades, and Jania Rubens, the red algae with the ability to eternally regenerate. Both are found at Corsica, in its sea and surrounding lands.
