Digging your toes in the sand. Soaking up the vitamin D. Taking a cool dip and then lazing in that sun-soaked beach towel.
We know we’re not alone when we say a trip to the beach gives us all the feels. And for that, we have Thalassotherapy to thank.
It’s not a super common term in the U.S. yet, but Thalassotherapy has roots from the 19th century, with some records dating back to the 1700s. It’s the belief in, and the use of, the ocean—its botanicals, the water itself, even the surrounding air—for revitalizing purposes, especially for skin.
So besides the good vibes, hitting the seaside has actual skincare-related benefits. But if you can’t get there, don’t worry, we’ve captured those benefits in our new Double Moisture duo, aptly named By the Sea. We’ve put together a quick read Q & A, so you can decide if Thalassotherapy is right for you. Fair warning, tan lines not included.
