Nunaia Founder Nicola Connolly On The Importance Of Skincare Rituals



With Nicola Connolly, Founder of Nunaïa 

Ritual has been used for thousands of years by communities all around the world as a way to find balance and meaning in their lives. In today’s busy world, we’re trying to juggle so many things that we can often feel stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted.

Nicola Connolly, the Founder of one of our newest brands Nunaïa, felt the same sense of overwhelm in her life. She embarked on a journey to re-connect with what it was she truly wanted out of life and spent over a decade working, researching and living with traditional communities on the Galapagos islands, Amazon Rainforest and Andes Mountains of Peru studying the techniques they used for maintaining their health and wellness and what she calls the ‘art of living well’.

“As I delved into these fascinating cultures in some of the most pristine and remote parts of the world, I became fascinated by how they were using plants from their natural environment to heal their body and minds. They were blending these natural remedies with their ancestral traditions and wisdom that they had been using for thousands of years. Despite the harsh conditions they were incredibly content and healthy.

The idea for Nunaïa was born from these experiences as a way to share this fascinating knowledge and help to bring moments of connection and balance back into people’s daily lives.

Our first beauty ritual is our award-winning Nourishing Radiance Serum Ritual.  The serum is a gorgeous elixir packed with antioxidants, vitamin A, C & E, minerals and polyphenols that are extracted and formulated using the latest green beauty technology to give incredible skin health results. We’re very proud of its incredible quality and clean beauty credentials but it also contains what we call our ‘star ingredient’ - The Nunaïa Ritual©.

The ritual is designed in four simple steps to help you bring more mindfulness and calm into your evening skincare routine. It works whether you have 2 minutes or ten minutes and allows you to re-set and re-balance at the end of the day. Instead of thinking about your to-do list for tomorrow you can carve out a few moments of time to check in with how you feel, ease out any stress or tension in your face and allow yourself a little moment to rest and thank yourself for all the amazing work you do every day.

The results for women all over the world have been incredible as this more mindful approach not only boosts the skin health results you see almost immediately by boosting circulation, assisting with lymphatic drainage and reducing stress which can be so apparent on our faces, but also provides a scientifically proven reduction in overall stress levels and greater sense of calm and well-being.

I believe deeply that when your skin glows, and you feel in balance, you both look and feel great and have more energy for the important things in life.”
