The Secret to Glazed-Donut Skin

re-shared from our friends at OSEA Malibu đź’•

Glazed-donut skin is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a perfectly smooth, gleaming, plump complexion. It’s the pinnacle of health and the cornerstone of youthfulness. It involves layers of hydration sealed in with our new seaweed-infused Dayglow Face Oil to make your skin really glisten. This final step is the key to nailing the look (so don’t–ahem–gloss over it.) Below, the complete guide to your glowiest, glaziest, most reflective skin yet.

Step 1: Start by Exfoliating

Be sure that your canvas is as primed as humanly possible. Twice weekly, in the evenings, use our Seaglow Overnight Serum AHA Treatment for a perfectly smooth, flake-free base that feels fantastic. This “does-the-work-while-you-dream” serum featuring AHAs and phytic acid minimizes the appearance of pores for otherworldly skin by morning. Our serum also uses moisturizing ingredients, like fermented shiunko oil, red algae, spirulina and seawater, to reinforce the skin’s moisture barrier for an absolutely dreamy exfoliating experience that’s perfect for all skin types.

Step 2: Get a Clean Slate

Before you pile on a ton of glistening skincare, make sure to cleanse first with our beloved Ocean Cleanser. This seaweed-infused gel is the world’s most refreshing way to sweep away dirt and excess oils and prep skin for that perfect donut look. Somehow it cleanses thoroughly, yet delivers mineral-rich hydration and leaves your skin soft and radiant. (The secret is a combination of seaweed and jojoba seed oil—the intoxicating citrus scent is just a bonus.) The minty-green formula in the chic glass bottle looks gorgeous and fresh on your bathroom counter, too.

Step 3: Treat Your Skin  🤩 Spa Manzanita fan favorite

A glazed, glossy look requires a hefty dose of hydration to plump skin to donut-level perfection. We have just the thing. Our best-selling Hyaluronic Sea Serum draws water-based moisture to the skin like a magnet — it’s clinically proven to instantly increase hydration and smooth the appearance of fine lines. In fact, after one use, 100% of users immediately showed an increase in hydration.* It also minimizes the appearance of lines, including fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, laugh lines and yes, even frown lines.* So how exactly does this magic work? Two molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, seaweed and snow mushroom, work together to optimize moisture levels in the skin, keeping it as plump as a donut all day.

*Based on a four-week third-party clinical study of 32 women ages 37-65 (including expert skin grading, instrumental measurements and consumer perception).

Step 4: Double Down on Hydration

When it comes to dewy, plump skin, an extra layer of hydration is key. Our beautiful, weightless Seabiotic Water Cream makes our skin come alive every time we use it. Don’t be fooled by the airy feel: this stuff is clinically proven to deliver over 72 hours of continuous hydration. A blend of seaweed and a microbiome-friendly pre and probiotic* visibly promote skin radiance, while nourishing squalane provides long-lasting moisturization. With a light-as-air texture, this cream sinks right in —it’s our secret for an instant summertime sheen.

*The probiotic in this formula is nonviable. This means it is not a live organism.

Step 5: Use a Finishing Facie Oil   🤩 Spa Manzanita fan favorite

Now that your face is hydrated and plump like a freshly made donut, it’s time to add the glaze. Use our new Dayglow Face Oil as the last step in your routine to instantly illuminate for a dewy, glaze-y finish. Or simply dab it on cheekbones and the bridge of your nose for an absolutely ethereal sheen. Think of Dayglow as a your-skin-only-glowier finishing oil without the shimmer or glitter of makeup-y highlighters. Our golden elixir has a silky, lightweight texture that melts into skin, leaving it as radiant and healthy-looking as can be. It’s made with mineral-rich Undaria seaweed, organic cold-pressed Moroccan argan oil and grapeseed oil to support a healthy moisture barrier for all skin types. It smells—in a beautifully subtle and calming way—of chamomile flowers harvested at the peak of freshness. Pat it on in the morning—you’ll still be glowing come dinnertime.

We are so delighted that our facials at Spa Manzanita use all of these amazing glow-inducing OSEA products (and more!). Check out our Facial Services and walk out the spa door with your very own glazed donut skin.
