We knew we wanted to have products that nurtured complexions from the inside out.We chose teas to nurture from within because not only are they naturally rich in skin-enhancing antioxidants but they are also delicious to drink. We want your beauty ritual to feel as enjoyable as possible! Who is MIYU’s beauty essence + tea pairings designed for? MIYU’s pairings are designed for all skin types – be it dry, normal, oily or combination. Think of our pairings as beauty boosters that can be used with any existing skincare regimen.
We know that 80% of skin ageing is due to environmental and lifestyle factors and the great news is that we have control over these factors. By being proactive in making smarter lifestyle choices and truly taking care of your skin from the inside out, we can help preserve the youthful appearance of our skin. We know this is easier said than done, which is why we’ve loaded our teas and skincare with a chockfull of skin-enhancing antioxidants, effortlessly giving you an added boost to a healthier and more beautiful lifestyle.
MIYU’s beauty essences are a hybrid between a facial mist and a serum. It delivers the freshness of a facial mist while providing the rich nutrients of a serum. They act as water reservoir for your skin and allow your moisturizer to absorb more effectively.
Much like wine is paired with cheese, MIYU pairs beauty essences with teas. Our pairings are meant to address lifestyle-directed skin concerns from the inside out. Examples of such lifestyle-directed concerns include dehydration (i.e. from living in dry climates, not drinking enough water) or stress.
Yes. However, we prefer not to refer to our beauty essences as toners because while they can also rebalance the pH levels in your skin, they do so much more than that. Our beauty essences contain clinically proven botanicals that work to address your particular lifestyle concern. They also act as a water reservoir for your skin (i.e. providing essential water for your skin to draw from) and help your moisturizer absorb much more effectively.
You can use your beauty essence throughout the day. Just keep in mind our beauty essences are richer and more moisturizing than your average facial mist, so it may disturb your makeup if you are too heavy handed with your application.
Our recommendation is to apply your beauty essence before your moisturizer both morning and night.
Each person’s skin responds to products differently and so results can vary from person to person. Our goal is not to deliver a quick fix that masks the particular skin issue but rather provide long-term benefits for the skin, which in our opinion, provides more optimal and longer lasting results.
Currently, we have two signature pairings to choose from. If you find that you are both stressed and dehydrated, we recommend that you start with the de-stress mi pairing. Our de-stress mi pairing will help rebuild your skin barrier making it more resilient against external irritants while preventing water from leaving your skin as easily. Use the de-stress mi pairing for three months before switching to the hydrate mi pairing. Once your skin barrier becomes more resilient, you can replenish your complexion with the hydrating properties provided in our hydrate mi pairing. Our hydrate mi beauty essence also improves aquaporin activity, improving water circulation throughout the different layers of your skin.
Because we’ve loaded our formulas with so many natural ingredients, we’ve found that some of our natural ingredients are a bit finicky and can settle to the bottom of the bottle. In order to get an equal amount of nutrients each time we recommend shaking your essence before each use.
No, we do not have any parabens, sulphates, phthalates, synthetic dyes or synthetic fragrances in our skincare.
No. While we tried to use as many natural ingredients as possible we didn’t want to compromise on efficacy. In our opinion, the technology isn’t quite where we want it to be in order for a fully natural/organic product to perform just as well as other products on the market. Of course, we are constantly staying abreast of new technologies, so as soon as we feel a formula containing 100% natural ingredients can match the effectiveness of their non-natural counterparts, we will be the first to reformulate.
MIYU’s skincare and teas are manufactured in the US.
We can’t claim our products are vegan because one of our signature ingredients is pearl. However, because we love animals we make a strong commitment to be cruelty-free and have recently been approved for the Leaping Bunny certification, which certifies that our suppliers and manufacturers do not test on animals.
Unfortunately, we cannot claim that our products are gluten-free. While our products do not actually contain any gluten ingredients, we work with a third party manufacturer that may formulate beauty products for other brands that could contain gluten. In order to be considered gluten-free, we would have to manufacture our products at a certified gluten-free facility. While we are confident our manufacturer is diligent in sanitizing between production runs we would rather err on the safe side for those with gluten sensitivities.
Absolutely not! We love our animals and as a result, we made a pledge not to test on our furry friends. Leaping Bunny, an external certification organization for cruelty-free beauty products has approved us as a cruelty-free brand.
