With NIYA Beauty’s gift cards, you can give your loved one a virtual makeup session tailored to their needs and wants.

Copper Water Bottle

Looking for an easy and eco-friendly gift for your family member? We’ve got you covered. According to ancient Ayurvedic medicine, there are many benefits to drinking water out of a copper water bottle. Water automatically turns into alkaline water while being stored in a copper water bottle, which helps balance your body’s PH levels.

The Ultimate Dry Brush

Dry brushing your skin is widely recommended by health experts because it has extreme long term benefits for just a few minutes a day. According to health experts “dry brushing detoxifies the body, improves circulation, eliminates dead skin cells, exfoliates the skin, improves skin tone, aids digestion, reduces and prevents cellulite, and increases energy and well-being. In addition, dry brushing stimulates the lymphatic system, which helps eliminate toxins and pathogens that can cause inflammation and illness”.

Dry brushes range from $19.50 to $44.50.

Essential Items you Should Have in your Weekend Getaway Bag 1024 683 adminalex

Essential Items you Should Have in your Weekend Getaway Bag

It’s time to make some memories! Whether you’re planning a staycation or taking a road trip with some friends, don’t forget the essentials you should take with you to make the most out of your trip. You can probably guess what they are, but we would like to remind you anyways!

A pair of sunglasses: Of course, this accessory is a MUST in your bag. Sunglasses are not only a fashion item, but they also protect your eyes against the sun’s UV rays. Keep in mind, you should buy the ones that say 100% UV resistant, otherwise they will not help protect your eyes.

Sunscreen: Yes! This is an item you should never ever forget even if it’s not sunny enough outside. Choose a water-resistant sunscreen that has an SPF of 30 or more, and provides broad-spectrum coverage to protect your skin. Apply it at least 15 minutes before going outdoors to give your skin time to absorb it.

Lip Balm: Nobody likes having dry lips! Just like your skin, your lips are also vulnerable to UV damage. Always have a lip balm with SPF handy to moisturize and protect your lips from the sun.

Water bottle: This one is super important! We should be sipping on water throughout the day to keep our bodies hydrated and prevent migraines and headaches. Buy a reusable bottle and bring it with you wherever you go so you don’t get thirsty or dehydrated.

Make sure to keep these essentials on you at all times! Remember: the better you take care of your skin, the younger you will look through the years.
