Travel & Skincare December 18 2019
I cannot stress enough the importance of skincare. Even though I was raised with a Mother who was very much into skincare and taught me to take care of my skin I have to be honest, I wasn't always good at being consistent with my skincare regimen. As much as I hate to admit this, often throughout my 20's I was the culprit of going to bed with my makeup on, ewwww I kick myself for that now, but at the time wouldn't give it a second thought because well, luckily I had been blessed with good genes and my skin wasn't looking bad. But taking care of your skin should be a priority good genes or not if you want to keep it looking good throughout your life.
When I finally started taking better care of my skin I wanted to seek out a line that was natural, non toxic and one that was a 100% VEGAN and cruelty free because I do not believe in animal testing. It was then that I discovered OSEA and began using their products and noticed a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin. I was sold, I knew this was my skincare line. I loved the clean smell, the fresh feeling my skin had after each use, never greasy just light and clean. I also felt an immediate connection to OSEA after learning of the founder's ties to Doe Bay on Orcas Island being that I live on an Island near by and I also fully believe in the healing powers of the ocean and mother nature. Another seller for me was that OSEA is a family owned and founded company on a mission to deliver a skincare line free of toxins with proven results that are not harmful to our heath or the environment. It is so important not only what we put into our bodies and what we surround ourselves with but also what we put on our bodies!
"I want to leave this planet a cleaner place than when I arrived (Like being a good house guest). I also want women to be able to use the safest cosmetics possible. Remember 70% of what you put on your body can be absorbed into your bloodstream. I want to raise the consciousness of women so they use safe cosmetics, it's not just about beauty - it's about their health."
-Jenefer Palmer, OSEA Founder
Recently I traveled to the Greek Islands and of course I took some of my favorite OSEA skincare products along because bonus, they make travel sizes of the essentials! We all know how hard travel can be on our skin for so many reasons and OSEA was definitely a lifesaver for my skin on our trip! Between the jet lag to spending all day in the sun exploring or on the beach and swimming in the ocean not to mention being completely off of a sleep schedule I don't know what I would have done without these products. Side note...probably my favorite product on our trip was the Sea Vitamin Boost mist which kept my face hydrated throughout the day because it was SO hot and we did a lot of walking! Here are a few of my everyday and travel favorites...
I am so impressed by everything about this line and want to share what I love because OSEA has changed my skin for the better in every way and I feel good about using it! I hope if you are looking for a solid skincare routine and you haven't tried it already you will give OSEA a try!
