Curing Summertime Beauty Sadness

Have you ever heard of nyakio?  It is a new luxury collection of skincare products formulated with  ingredients from and indigenous to Africa. Nyakio Kamoche Grieco, the brand’s founder and namesake, is an American beauty entrepreneur of Kenyan descent. She created the nyakio brand not only to pay homage to her family’s heritage and share their beauty secrets, but also to fill a gap in the marketplace, bringing the timeless beauty traditions and sophistication of Africa to women everywhere. Just as Africa represents many cultures and ethnicities, nyakio products were formulated to benefit women of all ages, skin types and backgrounds.

This summer, nyakio’s luxurious products offer the perfect solutions to common summer skincare dilemmas.

Problem: Your regular hydration cream is too heavy for the summer 
Solution: nyakio Hydrating Face Oil with Kola Nut ($49) is a light, non-greasy fusion of African Kola Nut, Ximenia Oil, Chamomile Oil and Trichilia Oil that invigorates and hydrates for 12 hours, leaving skin with a naturally healthy radiance. The caffeine-rich Kola Nut contains more caffeine than coffee beans and is known for its skin-energizing properties. With only one-to-two drops that are quickly absorbed, all skin becomes smooth, moisturized, and more youthful-looking.

Problem: Your self-tanner application is uneven
