Tsuri girlies love a good nap and a quality night’s sleep, ammiright?
But that doesn’t mean we always get our rest, although we should!
With a few months left of 2023, commit to prioritizing sleep. Not only is sleep needed for brain power, emotional health, and physical health, but a consistent sleep schedule helps your skin thrive! Yup, sleep is proven to help your skin in a multitude of ways. Check out how sleep promotes great skin health:
Not only does the power of rest matter but so does how you rest your pretty little head!
Do you sleep on your side or stomach? Many people do. So, consider an herbal sleep pillow that adheres to acne or sensitive skin and promotes rest and relaxation.
Also, what type of pillowcase do you use? Did you know the friction from a cotton case can create inflammation, worsening the condition of your skin? Not only that, but cotton takes the natural oil from your face and hair, which means that gunk gathers on your pillowcase night after night.
Consider grabbing a silky pillowcase and a soothing eye pillow to avoid the bacteria commonly stored on your standard pillowcases.
So, crawl back into bed to regenerate your skin cells, and don’t forget your eye pillow!

At Tsuri, we don’t gatekeep! So, in the spirit of sharing knowledge with our girlies, we want to give you the inside scoop about one of the most effective ways to detoxify your skin, aid in better digestion, and improve the appearance of cellulite (yes, you read that correctly!)
Dry brushing is a daily body massage with a dry, bristled brush, and this simple practice is excellent for exfoliating rough, dry skin. Dry brushing helps unclog pores and detoxifies skin by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph drainage. Plus, unclogging your pores makes it easier for your body to eliminate toxins in your system. Win-win!
We swear by dry brushing!
Fact: Dry brushing gives your skin a more radiant glow (removing dead skin cells makes your skin smoother and softer).
Fact: Dry brushing is gentler on your skin than scrubbing in the shower or bath (hot water inflames the skin and strips away oils that keep your skin healthy.)
If you want the benefits of dry brushing, use a natural, bristled brush. Be sure to choose bristles that adhere to your skin’s sensitivity. Stop immediately if you notice redness, swelling, or inflammation from brushing. Never dry brush over warts, moles, bumps, or broken skin.
Once a day, using your brush, start from the ankles and work your way up your body in long, fluid strokes (be sure to lighten pressure on sensitive areas such as the neck and breasts). A few swipes are all you need (plus, you don’t want to irritate your skin). If you notice any concerning issues, contact your dermatologist.

What is snow mushroom extract?
Snow mushroom extract is a type of mushroom that typically grows from dead or fallen wood. It's also known as tuckahoe, winter mushroom, and snow fungus. The extract comes from the fruiting body of this fungus.
The snow mushroom grows in tropical and subtropical climates where it can be found under deciduous trees. The fruiting bodies are harvested when they're still young--when they're about two to three-inches wide and dried out before being ground into powder form or sold whole as food supplements for humans or pets!
How we source it:
In true Tsuri fashion, our snow mushroom extract is sourced directly from a small supplier in Brazil. Our snow mushroom extract is grown organically and sustainably, providing the clean skincare experience our customers deserve.
Benefits of snow mushroom extract on skin:
Snow mushroom extract is a powerful anti-aging ingredient that can help you achieve younger, healthier, and more beautiful skin. It contains antioxidants that fight the effects of free radicals, which can cause premature aging.
Snow mushrooms have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat various skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. They are also known to reduce inflammation on the skin due to their high levels of polysaccharides (a type of carbohydrate).
How to use snow mushroom extract on skin:
Our Ocasa Shimmering Body Serum contains concentrated amounts of active ingredients that work deep within the layers of your skin to improve texture and tone over time. If you're using a serum like our Ocasa Shimmering Body Serum, apply it after cleansing, preferably on freshly exfoliated skin. This cosmetic serum is lightweight and doesn’t contain any oils that might clog your pores; instead, it provides a protective layer against free radicals and UV damage. Because of the high water content, our serum penetrates deeper into the skin than traditional shimmering body oils do, so it's great for people with dry or sensitive skin types who want to soothe, hydrate, and moisturize to achieve a beautiful, lasting glow without leaving an oily residue on the skin.
Precautions when using snow mushroom extract:
FAQs about snow mushroom extract:
Yes, as long as you follow the directions on the package and don't exceed recommended doses. As a precaution, make sure to speak with your doctor if you have any health issues or if you are pregnant or nursing.

What is moisturizing skincare?
Moisturizing skincare is a type of skincare that helps to keep your skin hydrated. Moisturizers can be found in many forms, including lotions, creams, and gels. They're used to treat dryness on the skin caused by environmental factors like cold weather or dry air.
Moisturizers work by adding water back into the outer layer of skin (epidermis) so it becomes softer and more pliable. This prevents cracks from forming in this layer which could lead to pain and infection if the wounds are introduced to bacteria or fungus. These small cracks can also lead to dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.
What is hydrating skincare?
Hydrating skincare products are designed to replenish the skin with water, which it needs to stay healthy at its deepest layers. The main function of hydrating skincare is to keep your complexion looking fresh, supple, youthful, and plump by making sure moisture is able to penetrate deeply and become locked into the skin, preventing over drying.
What types of moisturizers and hydrators are available?
There are many types of hydrators on the market today, including lotions, serums, and creams that contain ingredients like glycerin, plant and animal-based honey, aloe, and other humectants whose sole purpose is the replenish the deepest layers of skin with water and other vital nutrients to keep skin healthy. Oils and butters like shea butter, jojoba oil, marula oil, and mango butter are moisturizers or occlusives. These ingredients are thicker in texture and repel water to help lock hydration from the deepest layers of your skin below so that it doesn't evaporate away from your body as quickly as it would without them present!
The benefits of Tsuri Moisturizing/Hydrating Skincare/Body Care Line:
Moisturizers and hydrators are a must for anyone looking to improve their skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, even out complexion, treat chronic dryness, heal cracking, and nourish the skin from the inside out.

Tsuri’s Tigernut + Squalene Oil works wonders at helping to nourish the epidermis, our oil-loving, outermost layer of skin, by delivering vitamins like CoQ10, A, E, and K to balance, replenish, and revitalize dry, cracking. or mature skin.
