7 Grooming Essentials Inspired by the Ocean

Grooming sea ingredients products

Sea ingredients that help you put your best face forward

There's a reason you crave the ocean in the summer. While the sun provides healthy vitamin D, the sea makes your skin look and feel great. Its sand is an excellent exfoliant, and saltwater is packed with nourishing minerals. This natural miracle potion has become the inspiration for cosmetics giants Erno Laszlo and Creme de la Mer, who create products aimed at revitalizing and preserving your complexion even when you're miles from the shore. Now eco-minded newcomers such as Make, S.W. Basics, and Raffaele Ruberto are adding algae, sea salt, and mud to their skin-care lines to produce similar benefits. Not only are their ingredients sourced organically (you won't find any fish-killing microbeads here), they also strive to erase years from your face. It's like having the original fountain of youth at your fingertips.
