Everything on this earth is connected through the water cycle. The most important issues related to the survival of planet earth are the issues related to the ocean. The ocean covers 70 percent of our planet surface. Issues related to our abuse of our natural resources have led to problems in the ocean including the extinction of many ocean fish, dead zones, red tides, and negative changes in sea plants and animals.
Like the earth’s surface, as adults, we too are 70 percent water and how we treat the earth ultimately is how we treat ourselves. Did you know that more toxins are absorbed through your skin than through the digestive tract? Think about that the next time you put chemicals on your skin.
As I mentioned before, a few months ago. I signed up for The Advanced Permaculture Student Online, facilitated by Matt Powers (former member of “The Cringe” rock group). When I signed up for The Advanced Permaculture Student Online, I received as part of a goodie bag products put out by AMA Sea Beauty.
As I learned more about these products, I have realized that I need to start paying more attention to my skincare and what I put on my skin. If I can’t put a product in my mouth, why am I putting it on my skin?
AMA Sea Beauty sent me six full size products for me to try. The DeepSea Macroalgae serum, The SeaGlo Microalgae oil, VitaSea Thalassotherapy Treatment, SeaMist Marine Mineral Toner, SeaScrub, and SeaTea Beauty Bath Ritual.
I started using the SeaMist Marine Mineral Toner and the VitaSea Thalassotherapy treatment in the morning. I put on the thalassotherapy onto my dry face and then spritzed on the SeaMist Marine Mineral Toner. At night I gently work the SeaGlo Microalgae Oil into the skin on my face and on my neck and then finish my nightly routine with DeepSea Macroalgae serum. My skin seems to be getting healthier and more youthful every time I use it.
I have to admit, that the first time I used the SeaScrub, I thought it was a little too drying BUT after I used the other products for a week , I found that it did a wonderful job scrubbing away the dead skin cells on my face leaving it shiny clean.
Since it is winter, I decided to use organic coconut oil as a moisturizer on my face. The skin on my face is soft and smooth.
The SeaTea Beauty Bath Ritual
The sixth product, (not shown in the photo) the SeaTea Beauty Bath Ritual was perfect for a home spa day! I started filling the tub with bath water (not too hot, not too cold) and hung the bag over the spigot as per the instructions. At first the water came out clear, but as the bag became soaked, the water turned a beautiful aqua marine blue. No artificial color did that! It was all natural!
I soaked in the tub for about 20 minutes. It felt wonderful. The aroma was light and smelled slightly like some sort of flower blossom. I towel dried and applied the organic coconut oil that I keep in my bathroom. My skin was soft and healthy looking. the dry skin I usually feel this time of year has been nonexistent. My skin felt rejuvenated and clean. I highly recommend this high-end quality beauty products.
