Freshen up, on the go

As seasons change so does aromatherapy. Marking the summer solstice, Three Cosmetics will launch a limited edition lotion and mist to freshen up the skin on hot sunny days.

Sweet Sun Solstice Fragrance Aroma Mist Y, Aroma Hand Cream Y and Aroma Bath Serum Y.

In Thailand, the summer solstice will fall on June 21, when the Sun reaches its highest position with the Earth’s axis tilted towards the Sun, resulting in the day with the longest hours of sunlight.

Outdoors on a sunny day, one can be sweating and irritated by sticky skin. Escaping indoors makes you feel better but the skin encounters contrasting temperatures and becomes dehydrated in an air-conditioned room.

Powered by essential oils, Aroma Lotion UR and Aroma Refresh Mist UR are formulated to balance the mind and body as well as the skin, according to Three Cosmetics’ holistic approach to beauty.

The U and R stand for ume (Japanese plum) and rose, whose botanical waters are key ingredients in the lotion, which also contain a blend of lavender, rosemary, frankincense and eucalyptus radiata essential oils as well as cucumber and watermelon extracts.

Soaked on a cotton pad, the refreshing lotion can be used on both face and body to hydrate and balance the skin while the on-the-go mist can be spritz on sweaty areas.

Three’s holistic seasonal care previously featured Sweet Sun Solstice aromatic bath serum, hand cream and room spray for winter.

On the day of the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, it’s a custom for the Japanese to warm themselves in a citrus bath with floating yuzu fruit, believed to help ward off colds and promote good health.

This inspired Aroma Bath Serum infused with yuzu peel essential oil rich in limonene, which has a relaxing effect and promotes blood circulation. Petitgrain, orange peel and lavender essential oils further provide the aromatherapy.
