Managing Your Winter Skin

Outdoors in the Cold

Winter is in full swing here at JAVA Skin Care HQ in Rhode Island and all this COLD weather means the team is stepping up our beauty routines to keep our skin hydrated and glowing all season. Luckily, JAVA’s got everything we need!

As the temperature falls, the humidity in the air drops. The dry cold air evaporates the water from our skin leaving our hides feeling dry, tight and flaky.

There are two crucial steps to keeping as much moisture as we can in our skin: Exfoliation and hydration.

Make sure to wash your body and face with a moisturizing wash or bar soap. It is important to hydrate every chance you get during these dry months!

Our JAVA Body Wash is based with some amazing natural moisturizers like aloe vera, argan, and safflower oil.

Exfoliating removes dry dull skin cells from the surface of our skin to facilitate moisturizer absorption. If you skip exfoliating, moisturizers can get stuck in the rough outer layer of dead skin cells, preventing the healing and hydration from penetrating into our skin. So, basically not moisturizing your skin at all and also wasting product.

JAVA Body Scrub packs a one-two punch of hydration and exfoliation. Organic roasted and green coffee scrub off dull, dry skin while argan, safflower and sweet almond oil hydrate and heal.

Once you’ve given yourself a good scrubbing, it’s time to get your moisturizing on. Take advantage of the water you are already putting on your skin everyday by smoothing serum onto wet skin after cleansing (this not only seals in moisture but it also makes your product go a lot further!)

JAVA’s Body Serum is specially formulated with small molecules to penetrate into the skin and create a moisture barrier to keep your skin feeling good all day long without a greasy residue.

With JAVA, you can feel good in your own skin all winter long!.

Healthy Clean for You… And Your Backyard!

Whether you are a city dweller, live on acres of farmland or have a sprawling backyard in the suburbs, an outdoor shower is certain to appeal to you summertime sensibilities. For sandy feet, muddy dogs, or a  cool spritz on your skin,  a refreshing, eco-friendly shower is perfect on a hot day or under a starlit sky.

But if we are IMG_5772showering in the beautiful outdoors, then we should be as kind to the environment as we are to our bodies, right?

Most store bought body products we use in the shower are filled with harsh chemicals, irritants, artificial ingredients, dyes, colorants, fragrances and non-biodegradable micro-beads. These ingredients  are not only destructive to  beautiful skin but also to the surrounding environment: the soil the water we drink and bathe in. By using eco-friendly bath products (nudge, nudge, JAVA Skin Care), the water from your outdoor shower  isn’t harmful to your gardens, lawns, pets, wildlife, water systems or your skin.

Since your already outside, don’t worry about drying yourself off and dirtying another towel, lather on the JAVA Body Serum on your damp skin and let it soak in all the moisture it can get.
