I’ll admit it, when it comes to jumping on board with the newest beauty trends, I’m usually one to stick with my tried and true beauty routine instead of switching it up. But this year’s obsession with anything and everything mermaid related has got me jumping on the underwater bandwagon—from googling fishtail braid tutorials to ditching my red lipstick in lieu of a natural toned gloss, I’ve fallen head over heels with everything sea related. Whether you’re like me and are looking to up your siren beauty routine, or are just looking for some natural beauty products, we’ve got 14 sea essentials that will help you channel your inner Ariel and feel a little more at home under (or at) the sea.
For your face:
1. Mermaid Scrubber

This all-natural seaweed scrubber nourishes and cleans skin naturally, giving your skin a healthy glow.
2. Tarte Waterproof Bronzer
