I love seaweed. Like, seriously, I eat it every day (it’s a super food packed full of vitamins and minerals… and it’s T-A-S-T-Y!) Seaweed’s also amazing on the non-foodie front. It’s rich in beta-carotene, Vitamin A, minerals and amino acids, and it helps maintain collagen (a property necessary for smooth functioning of connective tissues a.k.a. wrinkle reducer) making skin super soft.
I’ve been using Gabriel Cosmetics for years but I just recently tried their organic skin care line and it’s pretty awesome. These are my faves…
White Seaweed Healing Hand & Body Lotion, $25.50: This is a light and easily absorbed lotion – so feel free to get slather happy; it definitely won’t make you feel sticky or oily. The white seaweed and active plant oils help replenish your skin with moisture and improve the texture and elasticity. So, if you suffer from dry skin, you need to be rockin’ some seaweed lotion! Just so you know, it’s safe for all skin types and it’s pH balanced. It has a really light floral scent which quikly fades after application.
Seaweed Revitalizing Bath & Shower Gel, $22.50: I’ve become the biggest fan of shower gels. They’re more convenient and accessable than bars of soap and they double up as shampoo when you’re out. Its key ingredients, aside from seaweed, are Vitamin C and aloe vera – these are important skin revitaliziers. This lil’ seaweed lotion and body wash combo lives in my bathroom and awaits me tonight – I’m excited. Ha! When do I not get excited about new beauty routines? My only complaint: It’s definitely on the pricey side for a body wash.
Eat, wear and bathe in seaweed! Peace out!
