Hello amaiaa lovelies,
Happy June and may this month be full of bright beautiful smiles. Sunshine or rain, lets never be without our sunscreen!
Last month I spoke about mindfulness and putting oneself first. As someone once said “Once you fall in love with yourself, the game is over.”
Keeping the same thread of thought, this month is a tribute to our ever growing amaiaa family and to all you, beauties!
Just over a year ago, amaiaa was born! It’s a time of true reflection and reminiscing the beautiful journey so far with endless memorable moments of intrigue, adventure and passion. Connecting women globally from all walks of life and ethnicities being able to touch the hearts of so many diverse wonderful beautiful women across the globe, was always my belief, dream and is now reality.
I want to take a moment to honor and salute our mothers, grandmothers and their mothers paying homage to the offerings of Mother Nature,...
At amaiaa, we love a good oil, which is why our facial elixirs are formulated with the best nature can offer. This includes the exotic and seductive jasmine flower. Derived in Persia, jasmine is known for its sweet, intoxicating and arguably romantic fragrance.
We’ve all tried jasmine tea and smelled its sultry fragrance from an essential oil diffuser, but have you ever tried jasmine oil on your skin? Probably not! Let’s talk about all the amazing jasmine oil benefits for your face, skin and overall well-being (because beauty is about the inside too!).
Here are our favorite jasmine oil benefits:
Benefit 1 - Natural Antiseptic
The first jasmine oil benefit is that it can serve as an amazing disinfectant as it carries an abundance of natural antiseptic properties. Its components include benzoic acid and benzyl benzoate, which are chemicals that kill and inhibit both bacteria and fungi. Jasmine essential oil can speed up...
Hello amaiaa lovelies,
Happy May and Happy Springtime!
Let’s welcome the daffodils and tulips to pop up to give us their colorful beauty, as the warmer brighter days are finally here.
As spring is upon us, it’s a good time to spring clean our body, mind, and soul. The moment is all about ‘clean’, from the inside out. From beauty to health drinks, from managing stress to daily exercise. A small daily change makes all the difference! No early morning screen time is a bonus, if you can stay away from your devices.
I honestly believe beauty is about lifestyle as well as using exceptional luxury natural beauty products. Daily practices help us to be mindful of taking good care of ourselves, which naturally radiates on the outside. “It’s never too late to take care of yourself".

Setting your mindset in the morning is the most important as stress is becoming a major...
Consumers have driven a 10% in demand for natural beauty, but how do you know what you’re using is truly natural? When you think of “clean beauty,” what comes to mind? You may think it’s products that have no chemicals... products that are “natural” or “pure,” right? You’re certainly not wrong, but there’s much more to it than that.
What is clean beauty?
Technically speaking, there is no one definition of ‘clean’ beauty. And it’s not enough to assume that all natural products are clean or that all products containing synthetic ingredients are harmful in fact. Certain natural ingredients (such as lead) are proven to be very harmful, and you may be shocked to learn that the FDA doesn’t approve skin and beauty care products (both natural and chemical-laden) before they end up on the shelves. This means that the onus is on you, as the consumer, to be a lot...

What if we told you that cool glass of lemonade doesn’t just help you hit refresh; if had regularly, it can also give you glowing skin. In our Beauty Diets blog post, we told you how what you eat reflects in how you look. The same is also true for what you drink as your pH levels are regulated from your stomach.

“Beauty is the illumination of your soul”

And that the earliest reference to a beauty expert has been found in the Mahabharata, the ancient Indian epic? We went back to lot of our history lessons to find some of the heritage rituals, just for you!
Historians have also found evidence of advanced ideas and practices of self-beautification in ancient India, often linked to the seasons as well as to daily life. Interestingly, these practices were directed towards not just looking good, but also towards good deeds (punya), longevity (aayush), a healthy, disease-free life (aarogyam), and happiness (anandam). The all-natural ingredients performed the four-pronged task of cleansing, allaying skin trouble, covering up imperfections and beautification. In the Ashtanga Hridaya, an ancient treatise, the use of different lepas (masks) and thailams (oils) was advised...
