Our Island Facial Scrub made with Maine seaweed and roses is good for every skin type. It's a gentle way to exfoliate and remove dead skin and will leave your face or entire body feeling and looking smooth and silky.
Carly from high school to early thirties struggled with breakout and angry pimples. We tried everything, dermatologist, medication, diet, you name it we tried it. Nothing really worked and the breakouts along with the constant search for a cure were exhausting and stressful. As we were experimenting with seaweed and the benefits of this amazing plant we discovered it was an ingredient that kept Carly's face happy. One of the reasons we started Dulse & Rugosa was how amazing seaweed is for skin, especially problem skin.
Our seaweed rich scrub is super easy to use. In general, seaweed works best wet. Wet your face and place just a dab of seaweed scrub on the palm of your hand. With seaweed a little goes a long way. Add just a bit of water to your scrub and it will expand a bit. Rub your palms together and then in a soft upward motion scrub your face. Rinse well. Depending on your skin type, age and the season you might or might not need moisturizer.
How often you need to exfoliate depends on a variety of factors. If you have younger skin, oily skin or skin prone to breakouts we recommend exfoliating every few days. Older more mature skin we suggest once a week. Other factors can influence how often you should exfoliate. Travel, being sick, being out on the water, wearing extra sunscreen, after a vacation are all times when exfoliating feels real good. Stressful periods are also a time to do a deep scrub. We designed our Seaweed and Rose Scrub for the face but an occasional full body scrub is a great way to naturally detox. Seaweed not only detoxes but can help restock trace minerals and vitamins we loose when we go thru a stressful period.
While skin benefits from a gentle scrub- there can be too much of a good thing. It's not recommended to exfoliate every day. Over exfoliation will leave your skin red, angry, irritated and may cause breakouts. Pay attention to your skin, it will tell you if you're over exfoliating.
Go for it- treat yourself to pure ocean goodness.
