Seaweed Skincare from Seaflora... what? Posted by Liz Belford, May 07 2015
Skincare from the ocean...
Seaflora selects the healthiest, freshest seaweed, ocean mud and marine minerals for their wild organic skincare and thalassotherapy products.
Thalassotherapy (pronounced: thah-lah-sso) is derived from the Greek word meaning ‘sea’ or ‘ocean’. Traditionally, it is the use of ocean water, seaweed, ocean mud and marine minerals to treat ailments. Thalassotherapy treatments enable the body to replenish, re-mineralize and revitalize to enhance good health and offer relaxation for mind, body and soul.
Seaflora harvests the exotic garden of seaweeds against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest rain forest. Seaweed is harvested in a precise method, which ensures that the remaining base of the seaweed continues to grow. This enables the seaweed gardens to flourish for many seasons to come.

What's Your Skin Type? Posted by Liz Belford, April 02 2015
Pointers for Identifying Your Skin Type
There you are, sharing a glass of wine with friends, when the topic of skin care comes up. Two of your friends recommend a product that you are not sure is appropriate for your skin type. What is your skin type, by the way? Normal? Sensitive?
Here are the basics and differences of skin types:
Dry Skin: Your skin feels dry and tight, and sometimes you can see flakes on your cheeks, chin and forehead. Fine lines may be present around your eye and lip contour areas. Find beautiful brands for dry skin.
Normal or Combination Skin: Your skin has an even tone, and is not overly dry or oily. From time to time you may experience oiliness on your chin, nose and forehead or dryness on your cheeks, lips and around your eye contour area. Browse the high quality products for normal or combination skin.
Oily Skin: Your skin is shiny, has visible pores and is prone to spots and blemishes. Oily skin doesn't show lines easily, however it needs to be maintained to prevent breakouts. See the products we recommend for oily skin.
Sensitive Skin: Your skin is delicate with fine pores, is often irritated and is prone to redness. Sensitive skin is often genetic and can also react to diet, changes in weather, hormonal imbalance and certain cosmetic products. Shop for sensitive skin products today!

Benefits of Exfoliating Posted by Liz Belford, April 01 2015
As we transition from our long winter and 'Spring' forward into a new season it is really important to change up your shower/bathing routine and here's why.
Exfoliating the body will promote better blood circulation in the skin, increasing cell turnover. By exfoliating the body twice a week it will remove your dry dead skin cells and brighten the overall tone of your skin. By removing this layer of the epidermis your moisturizers will penetrate better for an overall healthier looking skin.
At Rosewater Boutique we offer luxurious products that tame that winter skin!
