FIVE SEASONS. FIVE ELEMENTS.
Spring | ENLIGHTEN
Spring is associated with the wood element, signifying growth, renewal, and awakening. The energy of spring moves up and out - as opposed to the inward, dormant energy of winter. With the rapid climate and environmental changes, our skin may feel tender and sensitive. This is the season to soothe, protect, and revitalize our skin and spirits.
Summer | LUCENT
Summer belongs to the fire element. Spring signals the beginning of growth, while summer brings this growth to maturity. Fire represents a radiant, life-sustaining energy. When our fire is balanced, we feel a warm and joyous energy during summer. Excessive heat can manifests as congestion and inflammation. The goal for summer is to purify, balance, and clarify the skin and senses.
Autumn | GRACE
Autumn is related to the metal element. This is a transitional season when we celebrate the abundance of nature's harvest. As the first leaves fall, it is also an important time to collect ourselves and prepare for the colder months. Perhaps we neglected our skin in the past seasons and need to recuperate from environmental stress. Autumn is the season to repair, recondition, and uplift our skin and emotions.
Winter | QUIESCENT
Winter belongs to the water element which represents deep wisdom and internal strength. During this season we rest, return inward, and establish rituals to restore our natural essence. As we internalize during the winter months, we allow our mind and body to build and enrich for the coming year. The key to winter care is to nourish, strengthen, and repose physically and mentally.
Fifth Season | DIVINE
The fifth season represents all the four seasons and their transitions. It is the earth element and is central to balance and stability. 5YINA name this season Divine. The energy of Divine is constant, universal, and infinite. During transitional periods, it is important to provide a grounding ritual to reset and harmonize your state of being.
TRADITIONAL WISDON. PLANT ALCHEMY.
5YINA products are synergistically formulated to capture and reflect the essence of each season. The brand believe skincare rituals should change throughout the year. We dress and eat according to the seasons. Our skin deserves the same attention. 5YINA products enables your skin to adapt and remain vital, luminous, and balanced all year round.
TRAVEL BEAUTY. PROTECT. REJUVENATE.
Traveling to a different climate calls for change in your regular skincare regimen. Stress, jet-lag, fluctuations in your sleep pattern, diet, and environmental transitions disrupt your biorhythm. This is often reflected on your skin. 5YINA’s skincare products contain pure and potent bio-adaptive botanicals to address these effects. Their holistic formulations protect, nourish, and rejuvenate the skin, mind, and soul.
