A few weeks ago we added the stellar line of KYPRIS Beauty to the shop and before long our customers took to social media with their rave reviews and praise! We get giddy with all of the love that has surrounded this unique brand and we wanted to help our BeauTeas with a simple guide to developing your own beautiful KYPRIS beauty rituals that support various skin care needs.
The entire KYPRIS line consists of three Beauty Elixirs formulated by skin type and three serums that are used to customize your skin care based on its day-to-day needs (we all know our skin fluctuates with the season, time of the month, diet, stress, need I go on?). With this simple guide you can create your own custom blend to suit you skin care needs all day everyday! Just follow these simple steps…
Start Here: Choose your Elixir
|Elixir III: Prismatic Array
If you have any sensitivities or issues with essential oils this is the blend for you! It’s loaded with CoQ10, Vitamin C Ester + Vitamin E, Baobab and Prickly Pear Seed Oils but doesn’t contain any essential oils that can be bothersome for some individuals.
|Elixir II: Healing Bouquet
This is your blend if your skin is irritated, inflamed, or oily; or if you really dig essential oils! Indian jasmine, high altitude lavender, aged patchouli, and co-op grown rose geranium blended with CoQ10, Vitamin C Ester + Vitamin E, plus Baobab and Prickly Pear Seed Oil to calm, cool, and balance the skin.
|Elixir I: 1,000 Roses
Rose lovers this one is for you! It’s also for you if your have untroubled, combination, dull, or tired skin. This potent formula contains the oil of 1,000 organic and biodynamic Bulgarian roses plus CoQ10, Vitamin C Ester + Vitamin E, with Baobab and Prickly Pear Seed Oil. It is the moist hydrating and moisturizing formula.
Next: Customize with one or more of the following
This deeply hydrating formula is loaded with phospholipid encapsulated antioxidants to help defend against free radical damage and enhance the elasticity of the skin. It’s perfect for those seeking an extra dose of hydration or those looking to age gracefully (aren’t we all?)
This formula is ideal for those suffering with acne and breakouts where the skin is infected (as opposed to just congested). The blend of Zinc and Black Willow Bark plus the essential oils of Tea Tree, Niaouli and Lavender help the skin heal itself while balancing oil production. This is also great to use after waxing, shaving, threading, etc.
This product is strictly for nighttime use because it can increase photosensitivity when worn in direct sunlight. The unique formula features Fermented Pumpkin Enzymes plus other natural exfoliants to help smooth, clear up, and prevent blemishes due to skin congestion, and increase cellular turn over for fresh glowing skin.
Final Step: Create your unique blend
All you need to do is create your own micro-emulsion on your fingertips. Begin with a few drops of your Elixir, then add in a few drops of one, two, or three of the Serums to create the formula that your skin needs on that particular day and that particular time.Final Step: Create your formula.
Grand Finale: Add in some self love
It’s important to be mindful of what you’re telling yourself as you are applying your unique formula. This is a time to appreciate and enjoy the sensation of touching your skin as well as offering up some beautiful compliments to your radiant self!
