How to Exfoliate in the Spring/Summer
Introducing Seaglow Resurfacing Scrub, a multitasking face exfoliator that cleanses, exfoliates and restores radiance in one simple step. Our dual-action scrub delivers both physical and chemical exfoliation to promote cell renewal, smooth uneven texture, and clarify tone, plus it minimizes the look of pores for a noticeable glow that just gets better over time. The unique marshmallow-like texture washes away debris and excess oils, imparting a fantastic sensation to your skin. And the scent—a blend of jasmine, geranium and subtle citrus—is completely transporting.

What’s in a Cleansing Face Exfoliator?
The secret to our new scrub lies in the combination of chemical and physical exfoliation. The purely chemical exfoliants (resurfacing flower acids derived from hibiscus) dissolve and loosen debris, while the physical ones (natural volcanic sand) manually buff away dead skin cells to smooth and renew. It also features tiny rice particles infused with kiwi AHAs (a dual-action exfoliant) to buff away dirt, impurities, makeup, sweat, buildup and debris. Together, the two types of exfoliation work to promote cell renewal and leave skin smoother and more radiant.
But the reason it feels so good—and nourishes skin so beautifully—has to do with its unique cushiony base. A moisturizing blend of cloudberry seed oil, rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, along with blue-green algae, a superfood rich in vitamin B3 and antioxidants, delivers nutrients to the skin, while glacial oceanic clay cleanses to remove surface impurities and excess oils without stripping.

The clinical results above reflect the effects that you can expect to see (and feel), but try it for a week and let your soft, smooth, glowing skin speak for itself.
How to Use It and When
Use our new scrub 2 or 3 times a week, morning or night. Smooth about ¼ to ½ tsp onto wet skin, massage it in while avoiding the eye area, and then rinse with warm water for an instant fresh glow. By incorporating exfoliation into your regimen, not only will your skin be smoother and more radiant, but it will also help all of your other skincare products sink in better, maximizing their effectiveness. Follow with the rest of your skincare routine: mist, face serum, eye serum, eye cream, moisturizer, face oil and sunscreen. Our Seaglow Resurfacing Scrub is formulated for all skin types, except the most sensitive.
Which Exfoliator to Use?
Order and timing make a big difference when it comes to exfoliation. We recommend exfoliating 2 or 3 times per week in the warmer months less in cooler months (1-2 is plentiful) but this can vary based on your skin type and personal preference. On your exfoliation days, choose between Seaglow Resurfacing Scrub and Seaglow Overnight Serum AHA Treatment, depending on whether you favor chemical or dual-action exfoliation. The thing to remember is that moderation is key: More will not make your skin softer, smoother and glowier. But the right amount absolutely will.
OSEA - Skincare from the Sea
For over 27 years, we’ve been on a mission to create clean, seaweed-infused skincare that respects the natural world and makes skin look and feel its absolute best. In 1996, we set a new industry standard by prioritizing naturally-derived ingredients, chosen for their safety, efficacy and backed by the latest scientific research. Today it’s called clean beauty, but in our family, it is what it has always been: a simple idea that the ocean should be part of everyone’s life—and the conviction that it already is.
The ocean is our deepest inspiration. We use seaweed because it’s a superfood rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients. The benefits of seaweed are endless. Different species of seaweed can provide a myriad of results, including anti-aging and moisturization. Our seaweeds are sourced from around the world, based on scientific data.
