Despite its name, sea buckthorn berry doesn’t grow in the ocean but in the harsh conditions of the Tibetan Himalayas. Centuries ago, it was used to heal wounds incurred in battles. These days, it helps dry, damaged skin. Sibu Beauty has an entire line of beauty products that use the miracle berry. The seed oil absorbs quickly and can aid with pesky skin troubles like rosacea and eczema, even acne. Find it at Whole Foods, 3360 E. Speedway and 5555 E. River Road. A 10 ml bottle costs $13.99.
