Skin is something so visible and is hardly ever hidden.
Because of this, skincare is more than ever a big part of daily life, masking and improving what could be a dull or fatigued skin and showing signs of ageing.
There are different ingredients for different results, but there are always new trends when it comes to beauty and anything marine based is showing up in skincare more and more.
Anything from the deep blue sea from seaweed and algae, to of course seawater is very popular in skincare. Scientists even believe the first cell life to form on earth was a marine bacteria, or a very simple single-cell algae.
The human body needs replenishment of minerals, such as zinc, phosphorous, calcium and magnesium on a daily basis. Because seawater contains the body’s ideal balance of minerals, it is the perfect medium to restore these levels.
Here’s our top five marine based skincare products.
La Mer – The Renewal Oil
A brand infamous for marine ingredients rich in nutrients and essential minerals, a new star of the brand has been born.
Oil formulas are a precious way to help heal dryness and skin with renewing, ageless benefits resulting in a transformative, youthful and radiant glow.
Like all La Mer products, The Miracle Broth, (sea sourced actives) is at the heart of this new oil and assists in skin transformation. La Mer’s first ever, dual phase. Multi-faceted oil, can be used on the face, body and hair. Activated by a simple shake of the bottle, allowing the key active oils to absorb quickly and deeply, giving a powerful, luxurious touch of nourishment that you will not only feel, but see the skin renewing results.
RRP $320 * Available 1st November www.cremedelamer.com.au
ProPlenish Marine Collagen
Beauty from within. This is exactly ProPlenish’s answer to not only skin health, but nails and hair also.
Instead of addressing the signs of ageing from the outside, for centuries, Japanese women for example, have addressed them from within – balancing their bodies’ natural collagen levels with ingredients from Mother Nature.
Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body. Unfortunately though, we produce less, as we grow older.
Sourced from deep-sea fish of the Pacific Ocean, ProPlenish edible Marine Collagen is a tasteless, odourless, dissolvable supplement that turns clear in seconds. It restores your body with the nutrients it needs for a glowing complexion.
RRP Starting at $49.95, www.proplenish.com.au
Société Marine Hydrating Mask
Specialising as a clinical skincare line, Société is a balance of nature and science, taking on the continued development and improvement of skincare technologies.
This gel-like super hydrating, nourishing mask offers a synergistic blend of nutrient-rich seaweed extracts to address the needs of dry and dehydrated skin., while leaving it to calm the most irritated of skins making it ideal for barrier impaired skin. Your skin feels soothed and appears glowing.
RRP $101.64, 1800 648 851
Thalgo Source Marine, Absolute Hydra Marine Concentrate 1.2ml x7
For more than 40 years, Thalgo has been a leader in the world of Marine Cosmetics and this cult product shows why. With our busy lifestyles, hydration is lost in our skin so quickly and sometimes our daily moisturisers are just not enough.
This 7-day treatment gives intensive moisture to the skin – One drop contains a high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid for immediate absorption into the skin’s layers, combined with Seve Bleue des Oceans and the Well of Vital Water for 24H hydrating effectiveness.
An SOS hydrating treatment to re-hydrate and plump the skin in record time.
RRP $69 www.thalgo.com.au
Transformulas Marine Miracle Night Repair Serum
With a brand tag line – Beauty Without Surgery – I was already hooked to try this new range of marine based products, which creates an invisible skin support to smooth skin, ironing out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This super lightweight and fast absorbing serum has been called oxygen in a bottle, with encapsulated oxygen keeping the cell framework taught and firm. Mix that with a cocktail of concentrated ingredients, born from the sea, plus adding vitamin C and E, your skin is radiant and improves skin density.
This is a new favourite under makeup – even though it is for night when skin can accept more ingredients, the texture is what foundation loves.
RRP $69 www.transformulas.com
