What: Dermaquest Algae Facial Scrub, $28
Why: When avocado is good for moisturizing and cosmetic brands turn to papaya as a natural scrub, it’s no wonder that cosmetic makers have started to look below ground and to the see for natural products that can help your skin.
Demaquest has found success with algae, incorporating it into their Algae Facial Scrub with jojoba beads. It works to sluff off dead skin cells while still moisturizing the skin, without leaving a filmy residue or leaving your face so raw it hurts to smile.
Additional plant extracts are also used for enhanced soothing and antioxidant reasons, although we’re just happy to have a facial scrub that works equally well after a sweaty session at the gym or a long plane ride with re-circulated dry air.
