When it comes to beauty practices, Moroccan women are ahead of the curve. For one thing, they made us aware of how absolutely necessary oils are to our daily beauty routine; the amazingness of rose water; detoxify skin with clay masks; and the benefits of deep exfoliation for the entire body. While Moroccan beauty is rooted in ancient practices, one new brand is applying those old-world rituals to a modern, active lifestyle. Join us in welcoming Ziri Skincare to our beauty routine. Launched earlier this year, Ziri Skincare is the skin and hair care brand sharing North African beauty traditions.
Ziri means “moonlight” in the Moroccan Amazigh language and for centuries, the moon has played an important role in Moroccan culture. According to Moroccan legend, skin and hair are more absorbent in moonlight, making it the perfect time for rejuvenation and recovery. We have been indulging ourselves in some of this wonderful range of Moroccan Hamam beauty products.
