There's no doubt that the sea has healing powers. Something about the breeze, mineral-rich saltwater, and spending time in the sun (taking protective measures, of course) makes nasty summer bug bites diminish, heals pesky cuts and scrapes, and imparts gorgeous, tousled beach babe waves, sun-kissed skin, and even clears irritation and acne. In fact, going to the beach is a tried-and-true effortless way to feel like your most beautiful, confident, and full-on natural self.

We've hand-picked beauty products that contain oceanic ingredients like sea minerals, algae, kelp, seaweed, and salts that nourish and detoxify the skin—whether you can make it to the beach or not.
