We’re taking you on a trip to the best beaches in France with our soothing seaweed bath salts!
We all wish we were still on vacation. Chilling under the sun, marveling at miles of pristine white sand, diving into crystal blue waters - sounds like pure bliss, right? Heaven is closer to you than you think. Today we’re taking you on a mini vacation to the clear warm waters of the Brittany coast in France - home of our lux therapy bath salts. Take a deep breath and prepare to unwind as we take you on a private trip to paradise.
The Pure Beauty of Brittany, France
Paris may be great, but Brittany is an unspoken haven in France that we’d love to give a huge shout out to. Graced by lush green mountains and perfectly blue waters, the Brittany coast is the ideal travel destination for hikers and beach bums alike. Lose yourself in the fairytale-like forests and stumble upon ancient castles that are the stuff of legends. Or perhaps you’d prefer to lie back into the soft white sand and feel the clear blue waters on your toe tips. Wherever you go, the scenery looks just like it would hundreds of years ago - vibrant, fresh, and untouched.
If you want a taste of the ancient, check out the historic walled city of Saint-Malo. These sturdy stone walls kept its inhabitants safe from invaders for thousands of years. You better not have a fear of the ocean, because this city is completely surrounded by blue ocean waters on all four sides! If you climb up high onto a tower, you’ll be able to enjoy the same historic view from when the city was first founded because the waters are still so vibrantly blue and pristine. The only exception is that you won’t have to worry about looking out for the approach of unruly pirates anymore.
The Ultimate Skin Nourishing Sea Ingredient
While the waters may look clear from above, there’s a whole new world (cue Ariel!) below the surface that’s teeming with life. For example, the humble seaweed that lurks all the way at the bottom of the ocean floor. The benefits of seaweed actually go far beyond just enjoying them in your favorite sushi rolls. The ancient Greeks knew what was up, and - despite the sliminess of these sea plants that might make you squeamish - they actually bathed in seawater filled with seaweed! Seaweed is chock full of nutrient-rich sea minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and other trace elements that soothe and soften your skin, making it the perfect bath accompaniment. It’s so good for you that we launched a toner and face cream focusing on plumping your skin with seaweed and red algae (so you don’t have to worry about rubbing your face with gooey fresh sea slime).
But what about the rest of your body? Do you need to fly yourself over to the Brittany coast and soak yourself in a seaweed forest to obtain that silky smooth baby-like skin? No worries, we’ve got you covered again. Luckily, our BFF Mother Nature knows how to work some extra magic with seaweed that’ll have you swooning.
Seaweed can also take another form: salt! Conventionally, bath salts are sourced from sea salts that are harvested naturally from evaporating sea water. Like seaweed, sea salts are packed with a variety of skin benefits. They naturally detox your skin by killing off acne causing bacteria and clearing excess oil from your skin. Sea salts are also filled with magnesium, potassium, zinc, and a variety of other nutrients for naturally increasing your skin cell turnover for more supple skin. But how does seaweed produce the same beneficial salt? Enter our luxurious therapy bath salts for the answer. Let’s head back to the sparkling waters of France. The clear plasma of the seaweed floats to the ocean surface, and thanks to the hot sunshine, it crystallizes into a glistening salt that’s concentrated with sea nutrients. That includes over 60 different minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that are specifically targeted to detox and nourish your skin.
Seaweed Bath Salts: Therapy for the Mind and Body
Knowing how much our dedicated fans love natural skin care and their understanding of how important regular self care is to glowing healthy skin, we put together a collection of three seaweed bath salts for you to pamper yourself with.
