These products will leave you feeling fin-tastic…
Every woman has wanted to be a mermaid at some point in her life.
Whether it’s a passing thought or a full-blown trying-to-hold-my-breath-underwater-for-as-long-as-I-can, binge-watching The Little Mermaid phase like I had, I’m convinced that everyone has dreamt about what it’d be like to be living under the sea at one point in their life.
Of course, I’ve accepted the disappointing reality that my dreams of becoming a full-time mermaid will, sadly, remain a fantasy. Fortunately, people have long since known the benefits the ocean has on our skin and hair, and there are a plethora of beauty products enriched with nutrients, minerals, antioxidants, and peptides derived from the sea that can do wonders for your hair and skin. I’m not just talking about seaweed and algae infused products that can offer hydration whilst simultaneously detoxifying your skin, but also eye-shadow palettes that will have you looking like a sea siren.
So we’ve curated the best sea-themed beauty products that any ocean fanatic can dive into…
