SEA DRAGON COLLECTION
4 steps to glowing summer skin
When it's not summer, our hearts ache for those sunny, hot, never-ending days, (at least in the Northwest ) but our skin does not. Those high temps, blistering rays of sun, and fluctuating humidity can put your sebum glands into overdrive causing a host of skin issues and/or premature aging. Algae + Dragon Fruit to the rescue!
This superhero duo is just what our summer skin demands. The "Sea" of "Sea Dragon" symbolizes the algae we've formulated into this summer skincare line. Algae oil and blue spirulina, contain chlorophyll which is not only known as a UV blocker (not to be substituted for SPF) but also for its cleansing properties. It also is known to help skin retain moisture, brighten skin, and help with hyperpigmentation. It's rare to find 1 ingredient that both detoxifies and adds moisture, but algae does it all while also gifting you potent antioxidants that counteract the effect of harmful free radicals.
Both Algae and Dragon Fruit, the second hero of our "Sea Dragon" line, are high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that's noted for reducing redness and inflammation making it great not only for acne but for all skin types. This cactus super fruit, also known as pitaya, has been recognized to help maintain overall skin health by neutralizing those nasty free radicals, keeping our skin looking younger. Vitamin B6, which Dragon fruit has a high amount of, is known to soothe sunburns and release heat. There has also been some new and interesting research revealing that Dragon Fruit is one of few plant sources containing citamalic acid. This acid helps restore firmness, volume, and elasticity of the skin. Who doesn't want that!?
This line gently and efficiently cleanses and exfoliates with natural fruit enzymes and nourishes your skin with light, antioxidant-rich oils all the while protecting your skin from UV rays and canceling out free radicals.
Step 1: Exfoliate with Sea Dragon Face Polish. You don't want to overdo it on exfoliating during the summer with an aggressive scrub, so we've crafted this face polish to be ever-so peaceful for your face. Pumice, ground oats, bentonite clay, and ground jasmine flowers gently cleanse, detox, and exfoliate the skin as the plum, hemp, kiwi, and cucumber oils nourish with their omega fatty acids and protect with a powerhouse of antioxidants.
How to use: Rinse face with WARM (not hot) water, gently massage the scrub all over the face, being sure to be extra gentle around the eye area. Don't forget those hit those luscious LIPS TOO!
Step 2: Goop it on, Mask Time! This face mask, just like a tall glass of iced tea or a dip in the lake, is so refreshing! This mask is basically a fruit cocktail for your face. Pineapple is full of bromelain which is a fruit enzyme that is known to exfoliate the top layer of your skin, sloughing off dead skin cells. Strawberry's alpha hydroxy further helps eliminate dead skin cells and cleanses while the antioxidants help treat burns and protect skin from UV rays delaying aging. Bananas swoop in and hydrate dry skin leaving it soft and supple while strengthening the connective tissue that helps maintain skin's elasticity.
How to use: Mix 1 Tablespoon of powder with enough water to get a good thick gooey consistency. Or, use your choice of liquid (the toner is lovely) and let sit for a few mins while you are exfoliating during step 1. Apply a thick layer of the good goo to your face & let sit for 10 mins or until dry. Rinse with water.
Step 3: Smile through the mist. This mist is full of the healing and soothing attributes that aloe is known for, but the jasmine is pretty darn special too! It's known to reduce redness from temperature changes while balancing moisture and ph levels of your skin. Don't let this delicate flower fool you, it throws up a shield and protects your skin from any environmental stressors life throws at you. It also can boost elasticity, firm and tone skin too. Energetically, jasmine is said to help you deal with anxiety and depression, lifts confidence, improves motivation, helps release unwanted inhibitions, and promotes feelings of optimism. Look out summer, here I come!
How to use: Hold the bottle about 18 inches away from the face, spritz, and smile!
Step 4: Lock it in! This face oil is the secret to getting that summer goddess glow. Kiwi gives you all the vitamin c you'll need while also lending a healthy dose of vitamin e and several phytochemicals that shield the skin cells from oxidative damage caused by the sun and pollutants. Cucumber oil is rich in linoleic acid and improves firmness and elasticity while deeply moisturizing with its high omega 6's that protects skin from UV rays. Fun fact about plum oil, it's 8x more powerful than argan oil at protecting skin from free radicals and is known in western Asia as the fruit of life. Whoa! It also boasts 13 different kinds of omega fatty acids and helps with inflammatory issues helping with puffiness, dark spots, and under-eye circles.
How to use: Apply a few pumps of oil to fingertips. With light pressure massage oil in circular motions all over the face. Use the ring finger to gently pat oil around the eye area. Let skin fully absorb the oil through the night or before applying makeup.
I ordered this collection just in the nick of time! On my late August vacation, I managed to badly sunburned my bottom lip. I was at my wits end. Thanks to the gentle and refreshing Sea Dragon collection, I felt almost instant relief. The face polish was affective and gentle, the mask helped to cool down my sore lip and the mist and face oil added to the repair and relief that I needed. Thank goodness and thank you for your amazing products! I just wish I had taken some before and after pictures.
I just used this collection for the first time. The face mask and polish made my skin feel clear of any extra old skin, and full of moisture. The pumice is perfect. The toner has the best light fruity aroma, and the face oil just feels perfect; oh so hydrating. Thank you for another elegant collection to keep my skin happy and looking younger.
