Product Review: California-Based Sea of Elements
The other day I reconnected with a friend in California who made me fall in love with simple skincare all over again.
On a weekly basis, I'm experimenting with simple, natural ingredients to nourish and boost my skin's tone and texture. In recent years, oils have become my moisturizes and food-based ingredients like oatmeal, greek yogurt and honey are favorites for masks and other facial remedies.
So you can imagine my delight when my friend I rekindled over our mutual passion for adventures in skincare. When I learned about her all-natural, homemade and best of all simple, product line Sea of Elements, I knew I had to give it a try! She was kind enough to send me products to try, specifically for my skin type. So for the past week I've been using 3 products within the Pitta line. Heat sensitive and prone to redness, acne and other inflammations—this line is intended to calm skin. And that's exactly what it did. With the application of each product and especially when combined, that's exactly how my skin looks and feels. Especially during season transitions, my regular oils can leave my skin a little too oily or cleansing can leave it a little too dry. The Sea of Elements products have left it feeling totally balanced. Their website has a page all about skin types—check it out to learn which is yours! I had never looked at skin this way before. It really opened up a door to a winter routine I intend to embrace all year-long.
Below is more information about each of the products I'm using and their amazing ingredients that come together with such intention and love.
BALANCING FACE DUST
Balancing Face Dust is specially formulated to benefit all skin types because of its highly nourishing mineral and herbal blend to tone, detoxify, and exfoliate the skin. A multi-functional dry formula that can be used as a mask, an exfoliating scrub or both. A main goal of Ayurvedic skin care is to restore the function of the skin. This is done by “exercising” the skin to drive nutrients deep into the skin, flushing out deep-seated impurities.
