The dawn of a new year usually brings with it the scent of fresh diary pages, the setting of good intentions, and a whole host of resolutions to be a miraculously better version of ourselves.
But with all this frantic goal-setting and manifesting, it’s easy to forget that the secret to happiness lies in something much smaller: the honoring of simple, joyful routines that help us treasure the present moment.
We’re passionate believers in the power of ritual. It’s why we create products based on the time-worn traditions of sunkissed cultures, and encourage you to craft your own. After all, when something is enjoyable, you’ll long to repeat it – and it’s in establishing good habits, not constructing an entirely new self, that we see true transformation.
So as you step into 2022, we’ve designed a four-step ritual to refresh and detox your skin, giving you a glow for the new year and beyond. Time to freshen up.
Step 1: Cleanse with Oasis Fresh Dissolving Jelly Cleanser
Set the mood with Oasis Fresh, a whisper-light cleanser inspired by the lush, palm-fringed desert oasis. Just as the oasis is a haven from the harsh desert winds, Oasis Fresh gently nourishes your skin and lifts dirt for a soothing, sun-glossed glow.
Use on dry skin to remove make-up, and on damp skin for a quick, revitalizing cleanse. Natural, sugar-based surfactants and seed and fruit oils tackle any impurities, and a splash of Orange Blossom Water both calms your senses and revives your spirit.
Step 2: Detox with Atlas Pure Purifying Clay Mask
It’s a Moroccan beauty commandment to never let clay masks dry out on your face, for fear they’ll suck the moisture out of your skin, too. Atlas Pure’s ultra-nourishing formula never cracks or dries out, and instead purifies your complexion with a blend of Clays, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin and Allantoin.
Its balance of detoxifying actives that exfoliate and those that moisturize is your gateway to clearer, brighter and softer skin. Meanwhile the aroma of mint and verbena lifts your mind and stirs your soul, just like the breeze that drifts through the terracotta-toned Atlas Mountains.
Step 3: Hydrate with Medina Dew Melting Rose Water Cream
Finish off your moment of self-care with an indulgent touch of Medina Dew, our moisturizing cream for a blossom-blushed complexion.
Inspired by the Moroccan ritual of splashing Rose Water on the skin for a burst of instant hydration, Medina Dew is a science-led reinvention of a timeless tradition. Its blend of Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin and Rose Water locks moisture into the skin’s surface for long-lasting hydration, resulting in a dewy, petal-soft complexion.
Step 4: Revive with Oasis Veil Reviving Mist
Once you’ve completed your morning ritual, regular spritzes of Oasis Veil will keep you radiating health and happiness throughout the day. This ultra-fine mist diffuses Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and luminosity-boosting antioxidants and can be applied under or over your make-up, giving you true glow to go.
With Mullein Flower and Prickly Pear Extract, the formula provides plant-based protection from free radicals, while the Orange Flower Water and Aloe Vera Juice in the formula soothes and refreshes the skin. Enriched with Glycerin, it balances moisture levels and reduces surface water loss to revive and hydrate on the move.
