Affirmation: I love and honour myself.
Aligned with morning (awakening) and evening (relaxing) energy as well as our skin and body’s varying needs at those times, Aika have created Dosha-specific products and holistic rituals to enrich their rejuvenating benefits. The delicate bonding of organic ingredients also help to restore true wellness as a loving twice-daily practice. These Ayurvedic-inspired rituals encourage us to connect within and come home to ourselves.
The Kapha Elixir is the third step in the Kapha Retreat Ritual and when combined with the Deep Cleanser and Ayuressence, its effects are amplified. As our natural metabolic functions are inwardly focused for overnight support and rejuvenation, the Kapha Collection works together to create a deep and intuitive sense of wellbeing based on our individual needs.
Apply the Kapha Elixir to damp skin, ideally after using the Kapha Ayuressence.
Warm a few drops between your palms to help activate the phytonutrients and infuse them deeper into your skin. Inhale deeply and enjoy the exquisite aroma.
Firmly press and release onto damp face, neck and decolletage for 20-30 seconds. This press and release action allows for maximum penetration of actives.
Then gently massage upwards and outwards for 30 seconds or until absorbed.
Use the Kapha Ayuressence prior to using your Kapha Elixir. The Kapha Ayuressence increases your skin’s circulation, hydration while opening pores for optimum absorption of nutrients from the Kapha Elixir. The plant essences in the Kapha Ayuressence work in synergy with the Kapha Elixir to provide maximum glow and nourishment.
Ideal for use during damp and cold climates/weather or when skin’s overly congested/oily due to the energising, purifying and uplifting properties the Kapha product range offers. Also beneficial during times of fatigue and depression as well as Kapha season from mid-Winter to early Spring.
Powerful regeneration – supports our body’s overnight repair cycle by providing essential nutrients to the deepest levels of skin where cellular regeneration occurs.
Increased firmness and suppleness – boosts connective tissue repair by stimulating the fibroblasts to create new collagen and elastin for structural integrity of skin.
Reverses oxidative damage – provides a rich supply of antioxidants to counteract the day’s free radical damage by replenishing energy, building new cells and repairing connective tissue.
Stabilises oil flow – balances oil production and reduces bacterial activity on the skin which lessens acne, cystic breakouts and blemishes.
