However, there is one ingredient straight from the sea that is of benefit to our skin’s state of mind and health - seaweed.

CURES by Avancé uses seaweed in the majority of its skin care products, making it easy for everyone to benefit from the ocean floor without getting wet. Seaweed absorbs all of the richness from the sea and is 10x richer than land plants in vitamins and trace elements, including: mineral salts, amino acids, lipids, proteins and Vitamins A, C, B1, B12, E, PP, K + D. Seaweed helps to cleanse, tone, detoxify, oxygenate, revitalize and firm the skin. In addition, it re-establishes the natural moisture levels in skin while improving blood and lymphatic circulation. And seaweed is known for its anti-inflammatory actions, as well as its therapeutic properties which ultimately help to reduce excessive irritation and redness (rosacea sufferers rejoice).

Thank you, Avancé, for capturing the richness of the sea and delivering it straight to our door step.

We all want strong, healthy nails. While I wish mine were a tad bit longer, I know I am giving them the best care possible. How you care for your nails says a lot about you, your health and your style. And everyone notices nails, right? Thank goodness for my friends at Become. I got a sneak peek at two fantastic new products that will help get your nails in shape. They did mine!


The Age Resistant Nail Nourisher protects, conditions and softens the cuticles. And it's all-natural formula contains a blend of nourishing oils, herbal extracts, multivitamins and UV filters. Age Resistant Nail Strengthener conditions and toughens nails, as well as protects them against dehydration caused by the use of harsh detergents and soapy water. The pale pink color compliments the natural color of your nails. Brilliant. These two products are due to launch soon, so stay tuned! Until then, you can give your hands lots of love with Become's Rejuvenating Hand Cream. It's rich in vitamins and Aloe and leaves hands super soft. I love that the formula absorbs quickly, too.
