While some people are fans of organic skincare, others see natural beauty as a way of life. For Tesa, founder of eco-luxe brand Akasha Be Well, being super-conscious about what we put on our skin, and therefore into our bodies, has become a passion — maybe even her life’s mission. But, it wasn’t always that way. Having struggled with a variety of skin concerns (oily, sensitive, acne-prone, hyper-pigmentation, scarring, etc), she only made these problems worse by attacking her skin with a rough, “please-fix-this-all-right-now” approach. A former “product junkie”, Tesa’s self-esteem began to take a hit as her skin problems worsened. Thankfully, there was a big, bright light at the end of the tunnel.
Recognising that she was treating her skin as a battle zone instead of giving it the love and gentle treatment it was so desperately needing, Tesa began to re-examine her skincare regime, looking for ways to bring in more self-care and self-love, while also finding products that were good for her skin, her body, and this planet we all call home.
The ultimate conclusion to her skin journey? Akasha Be Well, a truly luxurious and eco-friendly skincare brand that features handcrafted products packed with “potent-but-kind” natural and organic ingredients. The complete collection features everything you need to care for your skin, including indulgent masks, nourishing lip care, and creams, mists, and moisturisers, for the face & body, to intensify hydration from head to toe.
Akasha Be Well Skincare
Thoughtfully formulated, Akasha Be Well products are also thoughtfully packaged, coming to your doorstep in amber glass, which preserves quality and freshness (and avoids using harmful plastics). Designed for those who want to indulge their skin while simultaneously taking care of a variety of skin-related woes, each Akasha Be Well product deserves your attention. But, to get things started, here are a few of our favorites for your perusal…
Created with a magical combination of shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, and coconut oil, the Vanilla Body Buttercream is the ultimate cream to calm and hydrate your skin. (Plus the warm and sweet smell is absolutely irresistible.)
Designed specifically for hydration, the Essential Hydrating Facial Mist comes in an easy-to-use spray bottle and combines aloe vera with elderberry and lavender to deliver an intense blend of hydrosols and essential oils. Use at home to awaken your skin at any time of the day or night, or keep in your handbag to refresh and revitalise on the go.
Potent without being harsh, the Black Tea Youth Serum has been created with a special formula of black tea, green tea, white tea, and aloe vera to help fight the signs of aging while also detoxifying your skin. Thanks to the aloe vera, this serum encourages collagen production for total skin rejuvenation.
Silky and lightweight, the luxurious Resham Oil Serum has been designed to boost the skin’s moisture levels dramatically, making it especially helpful for dry and maturing skin. The lightweight serum is enriched with rosehip seed oil to repair sun damage and sea buckthorn oil to minimise the signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. If you’re looking for a naturally radiant glow, this is the oil for you.
Give your lips real pampering with the Signature Nourishing Lip Balm, containing natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba, peppermint, and beeswax. After using, you’ll notice super moisturised, silky soft lips with a little extra plump.
Alongside their incredible everyday skincare range, Akasha Be Well offers two face masks, a Detoxifying Charcoal Mask and a Radiance Purifying Dry Mask. Both are 100% natural & organic and contain powerful clays to clean and purify pores. Suitable for all skin types, and especially effective for those with oily or blemish-prone skin. The face masks are wonderfully indulgent and can be used once or twice a week to boost and brighten skin.
Smooth, exfoliated, and radiant skin is the result after using the powerful Detoxifying Charcoal Mask. Created with activated coconut charcoal, two triple-action clays, triple acids (glycolic, lactic, and salicylic), and inflammation-reducing organic reishi, it’s the most effective way to draw out impurities and toxins from deep within the skin.
Providing real nourishment for your skin, the Radiance Purifying Dry Mask is a 100% natural mask that is completely waterless, created from three clays (Moroccan Rhassoul, Sea Green, French Rose), as well as ingredients like turmeric, coconut milk, aloe vera, and honey to brighten, hydrate, and exfoliate.
Clean, balanced, and effective, Akasha Be Well skincare is like that smart, savvy, kind, big sister we all wish we had — and she knows how to make your skin GLOW, too!
