Seaweed Skincare Benefits for Acne Prone Skin, Combination Skin & Hormonal Skin Flareups
Acne can be experienced at any age and the tendency can be to use skin- stripping products. Phoenix & Providence skincare is gentle, natural, and effective, formulated to balance and nurture to skin’s microbiome.
Seaweed is packed with a wide range of essential nutrients, including vitamins (A, C, E, and K), minerals (such as zinc, iron, and magnesium), and antioxidants. These nutrients play a crucial role in nourishing the skin, promoting overall skin health, and aiding in the reduction of acne.
The oily T-zone often associated with combination skin can lead to clogged pores and blemishes. Seaweed contains essential vitamins, including vitamin A and niacinamide, which help regulate sebum production.
Seaweed extracts, such as bladderwrack that we use in P & P skincare, are rich in polysaccharides that act as natural humectants, attracting and retaining moisture in the skin. This moisture-locking ability helps prevent dehydration in drier areas, ensuring your skin stays nourished and supple throughout the day.
Exfoliation is an essential step in any skincare routine, especially for acne-prone skin. Seaweed offers a gentle exfoliation method by releasing natural enzymes that remove dead skin cells and unclog pores. This process helps prevent the formation of acne and promotes a clearer, more radiant complexion.

Why Use Phoenix & Providence Skincare?
The seaweed used in Phoenix & Providence skincare is grown in the crystal clear waters surrounding the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the coast of Cornwall. The seaweed is foraged from the shores of the beautiful island of St. Martin’s, dried in the Scillonian sunshine and infused in organic jojoba oil for a full lunar cycle.
The ingredients used in our skincare are natural, organic, and kind to the environment, all seaweed is harvested by hand and the products made with love, sharing the island ethos of intentional living.
