As we embrace the warmer weather and start preparing to show more skin, we’re sharing all you need to know on how to slough away dull winter skin to reveal hydrated, more even and brighter skin. Our simple 2-step routine will get skin ready to bare all!


1) Micro Exfoliating Balm
Our creamy Micro Exfoliating Balm contains the tiniest MSM and silica particles to gently buff away dead skin cells whilst nourishing the lipid barrier to leave your skin soft, radiant and glowing with health and vitality. Exfoliating once a week not only keeps skin in tip top condition but also boosts the performance of your skincare products, allowing your products to penetrate deeper into the skin.


2) Renaissance Hand & Body Cream
Banish ‘winter skin’ and treat hands and body to our exfoliating Renaissance Hand & Body Cream packed with bio-available vitamins, fermented minerals, fruit AHA's and the very best bio-actives to chemically exfoliate dead skin cells, deeply nourish and rejuvenate. This luxurious and effective moisturiser leaves skin gorgeously soft and smooth from head to toe.


Did we mention this duo is also ideal for those suffering from Keratosis Pilaris? A hereditary condition, Keratosis Pilaris occurs in 40 % of adults as a result of a build-up of keratin, a hard protein that blocks the opening of the hair follicle resulting in small patches of bumpy, slightly rough skin on the tops of arms and thighs.
Gently massage the Micro Exfoliating Balm over dry, rough areas to effectively remove dead skin cells and smooth the skin, and follow up with our Renaissance Hand & Body Cream to further exfoliate the skin and break down excess keratin. This routine will help to reduce pigmentation, even skin tone and improve radiance meaning you’ll be ready to wear those sleeveless tops in no time!

Hay Fever Skincare Tips

For those suffering from hay fever, warmer weather often signals months of sneezing, runny noses and streaming eyes. One of the most common allergies, hay fever is caused by an irritation to pollen, a yellow-coloured powder produced by trees, flowers, grasses, and weeds. Hay fever can have an effect on many aspects of day-to-day life, leaving many feeling tired and run down with itchy eyes, runny noses and tickly throats.
Any of these symptoms sound familiar? If so, our founder Georgie Cleeve is on hand to help! Read on for a few easy tricks to help soothe the pesky symptoms so many of us are suffering from.


Check the ingredients
When it comes to your skincare routine, try and look out for ingredients with anti-inflammatory qualities. Georgie recommends ingredients such as Butterbur, derived from the root of the Butterbur shrub which grows in Europe, Asia and parts of North America. Butterbur is a known anti-histamine that has long been used to soothe irritated skin.
Find it in our Get Up & Glow serum and Renaissance Mask.

Treat your eyes
Sometimes just applying some light pressure to the eye area can really help reduce irritation. Our Eye Wonder serum has a soothing rose water base, and is jam-packed with nutrients and peptides to help hydrate and strengthen the delicate eye area.
We recommend our tailored Magic Eye Massage Routine to not only de-puff and refresh the eye area but also help to relieve itchy eyes. Using ring fingers and just one pump of Eye Wonder, follow the steps below:

1) Imagine you are typing quickly on a keyboard. Use this tapping movement around the eyes, temples and on the forehead for 10 seconds

2) Place your ring finger on the first pressure point

3) Move to arch of the eyebrow, apply pressure to the second point

4) From here move in between the eye brows to the 3rd point

5) With very light pressure, circle the eye area 3 times from inner to outer eyebrow, underneath the eye and up the bridge of the nose, with your fingers meeting again in between the eyebrows .

6) On the last circle, apply pressure at point 4, pushing upwards towards the ceiling.

7) For point 5, apply the pressure inwards, towards to nose.

8) Applying a little more pressure, lift and slide towards the temples, lifting the eyebrow, gently circle under the eyes three times.
9) On the last circle of the eye socket, stop at the outer corner of the eye and apply pressure to pressure point 7

10) Now, using your index and middle finger, use static circular movements to the temples three times

11) Swap back to your ring finger applying pressure point movements to point 8.

Switch Up Your Skincare Routine for Spring!

With spring in full bloom, we at OSKIA think now is the perfect time to spring clean your skincare routine in time for the warmer months ahead where your skin may not need such intense moisture. Read on for a few of our top tips to help you adjust your routine and pick the products your skin craves for a glowing, radiant complexion throughout the seasons to come!


Step 1: Replace heavy consistencies
Swapping heavier cleansing balms for cleansing gels or oils is the first step towards spring-ready skin when you may not require as much extra nourishment. Our deliciously scented Renaissance Cleansing Gel is the ultimate cleansing gel-to-oil which contains pumpkin enzymes to remove dull and dead skin cells leaving you with illuminated, balanced and radiant skin. Massage in circular motions for an extra 2-3 minutes to really cleanse deep into your pores whilst boosting circulation.


Step 2: Pick a lightweight (yet hydrating!) moisturiser
If you are suffering from dry skin after the harsh winter weather, a lightweight hydrating day cream is perfect for deeply moisturising whilst avoiding any leftover residue on the skin. Try our new Renaissance 360 Supreme Cream to deeply nourish and tackle the signs of ageing whilst reducing pigmentation and evening skin tone, or our Nutri-Active Day Cream to hydrate whilst providing your complexion with essential nutrients to improve cell health and efficiency, and protect skin DNA. If you’re a lover of facial oils, you may find that as the weather warms up your skin might be perfectly happy with an oil in place of your usual moisturiser. Our Restoration Oil is a lightweight oil that works to hydrate, replenish and soothe whilst protecting against free radical damage.


Step 3: The power-boost
Top it all off with your choice of serum for an intense dose of goodness throughout the transition to the warmer months. Choose an energising serum such as our Get Up & Glow for a natural healthy glow whilst increasing cell respiration to brighten and enliven skin. For an anti-ageing boost, try our Super 16 to encourage collagen production and lift the skin whilst hydrating and providing anti-oxidant protection.


Step 4: Don’t forget to exfoliate!
Exfoliation is key for achieving radiant, smooth skin. Buffing away tired and dead skin cells helps to unclog pores and also means your products can be penetrated more effectively. Using a creamy exfoliant such as our Micro Exfoliating Balm is also brilliant for nourishing the lipid barrier, avoiding any stripping of the skin. Enriched with youth-boosting nutrients and prebiotics, using this exfoliator just once a week will help stimulate collagen production and leave skin supremely soft.
