Seaweed extract is a popular ingredient in natural beauty products because it contains a unique and rich blend of vitamins and antioxidants which can benefit a wide range of skin types.
Seaweed is beneficial for acne prone skin due to its anti- bacterial qualities and ability to help maintain sebum control. 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.
Here are the Phoenix & Providence products that I’d recommend for your skin type, and why the ingredients they contain are particularly suitable for your skin’s needs.
A deeply cleansing, a weekly treatment for congested skin.
- The anti-bacterial properties of the seaweed detox and balance the skin, acting as a gentle exfoliant.
- The addition of Bentonite and Kaolin clay naturally draws toxins and extracts impurities; toning, tightening, and leaving skin refreshed and rejuvenated.
‘I bought this face mask because I've been experiencing a lot of breakouts recently, especially around my nose and mouth and lower cheeks (probably because of all the mask wearing), and it's been such a treat for my skin. I've used it several times a week, and not only is it lovely to have an excuse to create a new little self-care ritual and take some time out for myself, it's also been so soothing for my stressed skin. It's definitely helped calm and heal the inflammation of the adult acne without stripping or drying out my skin. A new firm favourite, thank you!’
‘After struggling with regular breakouts for many years, I have been using the Renew Seaweed Mask once a week with amazing results. My skin is appears even and cleansed and it feels so nourished and soft.’
It is a common (and understandable) misconception that if your skin is oily, you shouldn’t apply a face oil. In fact, a face oil is the perfect product to balance skin.
By stripping your skin of oil and using oil free products, your skin sends messages to produce more sebum. Applying a face oil allows your skin to recognise it can produce less sebum. The molecular structure of plant oils means they can sink in and balance, as opposed to synthetic ingredients that have a larger structure and sit on top of the skin.
- Nurture Face Oil is that it is specifically blended with a unique combination of non- comedogenic oils, oils that sink quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
- The natural anti- bacterial qualities of seaweed and hemp are specifically beneficial for acne.
‘The Nurture Face Oil is my favourite P & P product so far. It is easily absorbed, light enough that it doesn't make my skin feel greasy but rich enough that it feels like a real treat. I have problem skin and this oil hasn't caused any breakouts like other oils have in the past.’
