How OSKIA Has changed my skin.

9 November 2018 17:22

 


We all know how much of a struggle problem skin can be - from teenage acne to post pregnancy pigmentation and conditions such as Eczema and Rosacea which can appear when you least expect it. And, it can often seem as though, no matter how much water we consume, how carefully we eat or how thought out our skincare routine is, there is no respite.

At OSKIA, we believe that to make a difference with problematic skin you first need to understand what is causing the problems. Our skin is our body's largest organ and it's connected to everything that is happening on the inside. Understanding underlying causes, from diet to hormones, will help with choosing the right routine.

Our products are designed to work with your skin for a longer-term and effective skincare solution. Don’t believe us? Meet Nancy, who recently switched to OSKIA products to try a cleaner range after being recommended through a family friend.
Having struggled with red, inflamed skin, prone to breakouts since she was 15, Nancy has tried everything from facials to birth control pills, diets and even Ro-Accutane to try and remedy her skin. After using our products for two months Nancy told us she was “In awe of our products”, and that she felt she “actually had control over her skin for once”! Her skin that was once oily, inflamed and prone to breaking out, is now far calmer and more balanced with her skin tone and texture more even.

Pumpkin things we love

26 October 2018 10:28

Posted in: Ingredient Focus

 


Many people perceive pumpkins, as little more than a spooky Halloween decoration to carve once a year. However, we want you to rethink this plump, nutritious plant and how, not only can they be carved at Halloween, but also help you detox your way through Halloween, whilst they are so abundantly available.


Pumpkins can often be overshadowed by Squashes, when we cook, due to the fact they are part of the same family. However, pumpkins really do have a huge range of health benefits, that perhaps are sometimes overlooked, including being one of the best sources of Beta-Carotene.
Beta-Carotene is a carotenoid, carotenoids are a naturally occurring pigment, found in plants and are largely responsible for the vivid colour in some fruits and vegetables. The Human body uses Beta-Carotene in a few different ways, it can act as an Anti-Oxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of harmful Free-Radicals. It is also converted by the body into Vitamin A, a precursor of Vitamin A it can sometimes be referred to as “Pro-Vitamin A”. We need Vitamin A, for healthy skin, our immune system and good eye health, all in all, we should definitely be feasting on this delicious vegetable this October.


To make things easier for you, we have been treated to a sneak peak of Wahacas famous Dia de lo Muertos (Day Of The Dead) festival menu created by chef and Wahaca’s Co-Founder Tommi Miers, who has given us her “Crown Prince Day Of The Dead” recipe, which is not only absolutely Devine, but also scarily healthy, with Roasted pumpkin, kale, and cashew mole, what’s not to love?


If you want to indulge in more of Tommi’s delicious dishes make sure you get tickets to one of her supper clubs in London or Manchester (Tickets here), you can expect to be treated to passion fruit cured Trout, traditional slow cooked game with picadillo, Marigold Margaritas, or ice-cold Coronas. Be quick or you’ll miss out!

CROWN PRINCE DAY OF THE DEAD 
Mole is a Mexican word for sauce and describes an umbrella of delectable sauces that they cook in this incredible country (think guaca-mole meaning avocado sauce). This is a vibrant, modern and extremely healthy one that takes very little time to throw together and is dairy free. I love it with pumpkin, but the sauce is also delicious with lamb chops, or a pork tenderloin if you are feeding meat lovers.


Serves 4
For the pumpkin

• 1 large Delica pumpkin (or other delicious variety of squash like Crown Prince or butternut), about 1.2kg
• 3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• A small handful of chopped fresh thyme
• 1 tsp fennel SEEDS
• ½ tsp dried chilli flakes, optional

 For the kale and cashew nut mole
• 140g cashew nuts, soaked overnight then drained
• 300ml water, or as needed
• 50g baby kale
• 1 garlic clove, peeled
• A large handful each of coriander and parsley
• A small bunch of tarragon
• The juice of 2 limes
• 75ml extra virgin olive oil, or as needed
• 3 spring onions, roughly chopped
• 1 tbsp cider vinegar

To serve
• 2 tbsp toasted hazelnuts
• 2 tbsp pomegranate seeds
• 1 bag baby kale leaves (I use purple if I can get them)
• Aged pecorino to shave (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6.
  2. Halve the pumpkin and discard the seeds, then slice the flesh into wedges (you can peel them if you like). In a pestle and mortar or with a chopping knife, lightly crush the thyme, fennel seeds and dried chilli with salt and pepper and scatter over the pumpkin with the olive oil. Roast for 35-40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the mole. Blitz the soaked cashew nuts in a blender, then add the rest of the mole ingredients and blend to a smooth puree. You want it to be the consistency of double cream, so thin it down with more water or olive oil if needed.
  4. Transfer to a pan and warm the mole gently, then pour a little onto each plate and serve with the roast pumpkin wedges on top, scattered with the hazelnuts, pomegranate seeds and baby kale. Shave with pecorino, if using.

All about Renaissance Cleansing Gel

12 October 2018 15:28

Posted in: Renaissance Cleansing Gel, Product Focus

 


Our Renaissance Cleansing Gel is the original gel-to-oil enzyme cleanser, hailed as “The trusted cleanser by the skincare addicts” by The Times and “A peachy-coloured balm that delivers a proper, Dyson-deep clean. It also smells of Turkish delight.” By Tatler. Loved by our customers because it is suitable for all skin types and helps reveal clean balanced, fresh and radiant skin use after use. Here is the full de-brief on why it works and why we fell in-love with it.

 It’s a 3 in 1
Our Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a 3 in 1: it cleanses, exfoliates and works as a mini mask, gentle enough to use as a daily exfoliant. It is jam packed with Vitamins, Enzymes and nourishing Omegas, whilst encompassing our Bio-Nutritional technology to enhance the performance of all our ingredients.

Gentle Exfoliation
We believe in harnessing the power of enzymes, as they are by far the gentlest form of exfoliation, so packed our Renaissance Cleansing Gel with Fermented Pumpkin Enzymes, which are a miracle ingredient for anyone who suffers from sensitivity. It's perfect to incorporate into your everyday routine to thoroughly remove dead skin cells without changing the skin's natural pH and effecting our delicate microflora. 

Brightens the Complexion
It contains Vitamin A Palmitate to tackle any pigmentation woes you may have, by very gently resurfacing, it will improve dry, mature skin leaving you with a supple bright complexion. Vitamin C & E for their healing properties, and protection against pesky Free-Radicals. Starflower Oil to help improve elasticity & firmness whilst enhancing your lipid barrier for skin left beautifully soft.
Of course, we would never make a product without our miracle ingredient MSM, wonderful at soothing inflammation and detoxifying.

Why the OSKIA Team loves it:
Here in the OSKIA office it is safe to say we are all hooked on the Renaissance Cleansing Gel from the translucent peachy colour, to the gorgeous signature renaissance scent, the Renaissance Cleansing Gel has helped members of our team even-out post pregnancy pigmentation. With continuous use it has reduced congestion and cleared breakouts whilst boosting radiance and leaving our skin PH balanced.

Our Top Tip:
Facial Massage: In the evening take your time to really work your Renaissance Cleansing Gel into your skin. Not only will this encourage blood flow, but encourage lymphatic drainage to help remove toxins out of the cells and can also increase efficacy of the product by up to 30%, allowing your skin to fully absorb all the wonderful nutrients the cleanser has to offer.
Use it as a mini mask: When washing your face in the morning leave our Renaissance Cleansing Gel on whilst brushing your teeth. This allows the enzymes to work their magic before emulsifying and washing off - a perfect mini-morning facial!
