Sea Breeze astringent (manufactured by Proctor and Gamble) has been used in skin care for a very long time. Sea Breeze is good to use on oily skin types to help get rid the skin’s excess oils, balance oil production, and shrink large pores. Though Sea Breeze is mainly used on your face, there are other great uses for the astringent since it has purifying and cooling properties. Sea Breeze astringent is a multi-purpose beauty product which can be purchased at a beauty supply store.
Dry Scalp and Dandruff
Sea Breeze can be used to fight dandruff and dry scalp; massage Sea Breeze into scalp before shampooing. After washing your hair, towel dry, and apply the sea breeze to your scalp. Avoid getting it in your eyes, leave on for a few minutes, then rinse. The Sea Breeze should lift the dry, flaky particles that cause dandruff and dry scalp.
After Shaving and Waxing
Applying Sea Breeze Astringent to the skin before waxing removes excess oil and helps prevent wax from sticking to the skin. Since Sea Breeze helps in absorbing excess oils; it could be used before waxing to cleanse the hair follicles making it easier to wax the hair out. Using as an after shave on the face gives the skin an invigorating and cooling sensation. Using Sea Breeze to clean any small cuts that occur during shaving is a great way to cleanse the areas since it works as an antibiotic killing the germs as it cleanses the skin.
Minor Cuts and Bug Bites
Applying Sea Breeze astringent to bug bites not only helps in cleaning the wound but also provides a cooling sensation which overcomes the pain and reduces the inflammation caused by bug bite. Bug bites get itchy, inflamed and possibly infected if scratched too much and not cleaned properly. Dab a bit of Sea Breeze on the bug bites to clean the area; the cooling sensation calms the itchiness of the bite. If using Sea Breeze on a bee sting, remove the stinger and dab a cotton ball soaked in Sea Breeze on the wound to relieve pain and clean the wound. You can also use Sea Breeze to clean minor cuts.
Cooling Spray, Heat Rash, and Sunburn
Keep cool this summer with a cooling spray; add Sea Breeze to ice water and soak a hand towel in the mixture, then apply it to your neck or feet to instantly cool your body or add it to a spray bottle to carry with you to the beach. By dabbing your skin with cotton balls soaked in Sea Breeze, the cooling effect also soothes sunburn by taking the heat out of the burn and allowing it to heal faster. Sea Breeze may also take the itch out of rashes caused by poison ivy or poison oak.
