STAY CALM AND MIST ON
Our beauty oils and mask often get all the attention. But do you know that behind every superstar 5YINA beauty oil, there is a superstar hydrolat? 5YINA's hydrolats are multi-tasking botanical toners that do more than refresh and hydrate. These botanical elixirs are loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, adaptogens, and essences that work synergistically to bring balance and vitality to your skin + energy.
Here's how to maximize your 5YINA Hydrolats:
1. SKIN TONER + PORE REFINEREach hydrolat is formulated with white willow bark and licorice extracts, to gently get rid of dead skin cells + brighten your complexion. After cleansing, mist hydrolat generously and swipe your face with a clean cotton pad to remove every last bit of impurity.
2. HYDRATING SKIN ESSENCE
Heroes for your skin's delicate acid mantle, these balancing yet versatile hydrolats get your skin primed and ready for layering on other products. After cleansing and toning (see 1. above), mist generously then gently pat in excess to allow your skin to soak in all the goodness of these magical elixirs. Repeat a couple times if desired. Packed with skin-loving plant nutrients and humectants, our hydrolats are perfect for layering extra hydration between other products. When you spend a bit more effort on this step, be prepared to fall in love with your smooth and dewy skin!

3) CREATE MICRO-EMULSIONS
Formulated to pair with our signature beauty oils, 5YINA hydrolats + oils create a beautiful, customized micro-emulsion your skin will love! When you mist these elixirs into your oils/ serums /moisturizers, they help beneficial ingredients penetrate faster and better. Place a few drops of oil onto your palm and mist hydrolat into the oil ( ratio of oil to hydrolat - 1 : 3 ). Add more hydrolat if you want an even lighter finish. Press this micro-emulsion cocktail onto your skin, and gently massage until your complexion begins to glow.
4) SCALP REFRESHER
Yep, we sometimes use hydrolats on our scalps. The epidermis definitely includes the surface of the scalp. If your scalp feels out-of-balance and oily, give the LUCENT HYDROLAT a try. Mist this balancing tonic on freshly shampooed and towel-dried scalp. This refreshing hydrolat is infused with plant extracts such as green tea, honeysuckle, and lotus flowers + leaves to help with sebum production and inflammation. We’ve found it helps add volume + shine to hair and extends one more day of no shampoo! Woohoo!
5) COUNTERACT "TECH-FACE"Do you look at a computer screen ( or an electronic device ) for more than 3 hours a day? You might notice your skin gets a little lack-luster and dull after working on your computer for several hours straight. Perhaps it's the HEV light, or perhaps it's from the lack of physical activity (hello tech neck!). We love having a bottle of GRACE HYDROLAT by our desks to boost our skin and mood. Infused with loads of antioxidant-rich botanicals, such as reishi, chrysanthemum, and goji berries to help eradicate those pesky radicals and restore some GLOW + LIFE to your complexion.
6) STRESS REDUCER
If you’ve tried our QUIESCENT HYDROLAT, you'll know what we are talking about. It instantly dissolves stress and anxiety. This hydrolat is both calming and grounding, thanks to the peace-inducing, woodsy aroma of douglas fir, sandalwood, and frankincense. Take a deep breath and be transported to the vast, pristine forests with every mist.
7) INFLIGHT SKIN REFRESHER
Getting on a plane? Pack a bottle of the ENLIGHTEN HYDROLAT with you. Conveniently bottled in a TSA-friendly size so you can mist at will mid-air. This dreamy botanical elixir helps soothe and hydrate your skin with white tea, rose, and aloe. It's also infused with silver which has anti-microbial effects to help counteract pathogens in recirculated cabin air.
8) CLEARS NEGATIVE ENERGY
Feeling out of whack energetically? Or had an unpleasant encounter? If saging (we actually prefer palo santo) is not an option, you can always use a few spritzes of hydrolats to quickly clear and reset your energy. Aromatherapy, with origins from ancient China and Egypt, may be an effective way to clear negative energy and attract the positive.
