When we're stressed, our skin quickly becomes irritated. Redness, breakouts and uneven tone are all symptoms of a release a Cortisol, a hormone our body naturally produces in reaction to being stressed out.

Soothing, calming skincare is essential to helping reduce the appearance of our stressed out skin. The Origins Mega-Mushrooms skincare range has been specially designed in collaboration with Harvard-trained holistic health physician Dr. Andrew Weil to reduce skin stresses and boost your natural defences.

Dr. Weil's collection is enriched with his signature blend of soothing mushrooms to calm sensitivity and irritation, boost your skin's resilience and reduce visible redness of your complexion.

Mushroom Skincare

Although not the most talked about skincare ingredient, mushrooms contain a myraid of benefits for your complexion. Packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, mushrooms work to boost the overall health and appearance of your skin.

The Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom collection harnesses the power of 'miracle mushrooms' - Reishi, Cordyceps and Chaga - all of which Dr. Weil discovered whilst travelling around China. This effective, soothing Mega-Mushroom blend strengthens your skin's protective barrier, promoting a healthier, more radiant complexion.

Reishi mushrooms in particular boast a wide range of skin-soothing benefits. Referred to as the 'Mushroom of Immortality' with over 7000 years of use, Reishi mushrooms are believed to boost vitality and possess potent skin-soothing properties to help calm and relieve skin.

Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion

Soothing and comforting Reishi mushrooms are a key ingredient in the Dr. Andrew Neil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion, the stand-out product of the Mega-Mushrooms collection.

Designed to soothe, comfort and hydrate, the Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion smoothes over your skin and leaves your complexion looking and feeling refreshed and more supple.

The Treatment Lotion is the perfect pre-moisturiser step to add to your routine. Acting as a toner, the lotion deeply hydrates the skin, adding an extra layer of hydration and nourishment before applying your moisturiser. Its soothing and calming properties make it the perfect product for stressed, irritated skin.

Suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types, the weightless Skin Relief Treatment glides over the skin to restore long-lasting comfort.

Infused with anti-oxidant rich Ginger and Tumeric, it shields the skin from free radical damage and premature ageing whilst Holy Basil works to soothe and rejuvenate for beautiful glowing skin.
