Taking the winter blues and changing in the season in its stride, the Kyushi skincare range has a welcome solution that will boost your regime and offer a welcome respite in a tiring world.

Kyushi

Kyushi Orange & Neroli (£39/30ml, kyushi.co.uk) is a 100% natural, vegan facial oil combining the skin-nourishing plant-based oils of Jojoba and Squalane, with the powerful aromatherapy benefits of Sweet Orange, Bergamot and Neroli essential oils. This energizing daily facial oil works to maintain, support and restore beautiful glowing skin, whilst putting a spring in your morning step.

  • Sweet Orange essential oil naturally reduces anxiety and balances mood

  • Bergamot essential oil soothes tension in the body and helps to fade dark spots whilst brightening and evening skin tone

  • uplifting Neroli essential oil has antiseptic properties to support the balance in oil and moisture

  • Jojoba Oil is rich in fatty acids, vitamin E, B-complex, silicon, chromium, copper, zinc and bacteria-fighting iodine. This naturally derived liquid wax is almost identical to the molecular structure of sebum, allowing the oil to deeply nourish and moisturize

  • high in vitamin C content which helps to fight wrinkles, supports the production of collagen and boosts blood flow to the area.

The Kyushi Ritual

The application of Kyushi is as important as the product itself, inspired by the Japanese belief in being in the moment. Pause for few moments twice daily, place three drops of your Kyushi oil into the palm of your hand, gently rub hands together and cup hands over nose and mouth. Close the eyes and take three long deep breaths, feeling the stomach rise and fall, the lungs filling then emptying completely as you deep breathe to oxygenate the body, giving cells the crucial oxygen needed to regenerate. Finally apply the oil to face, neck, and chest to experience the topical and aromatherapy benefits in unison. Kyushi - permission to pause.
