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!.

Sabrina – The Brunette Ecoholic

This week’s The Perks of JAVA installment introduces us to Sabrina (known as Brie to friends and family), The Brunette Ecoholic. Brie has a passion for Eco-conscious and balanced living.  This passion not only drives her to research the skincare products that she uses for herself and her family but also to share this information so that we can all benefit.

Here are Brie’s answers to our JAVA questionnaire:

How do you take your coffee? I like stevia and almond milk in my coffee

What is your astrological sign? I am an Aquarius – which means I am loyal, curious, and imaginative. It also means I can be unpredictable and a little all over the place (or as my husband likes to say – I have “oooh shiny syndrome“)! lol

A little history of your blog? I started my blog when I was recovering from major back surgery. I wanted to create a space where I could not only share my love & passion for clean, eco-conscious and balanced living but to also share my life-long skin issues and what has (and hasn’t) helped.What in green beauty are you passionate about right now? For me, it’s all about skin care. I love makeup and am so impressed with all of the options we now have in the green beauty world (and that are just as good, if not better than conventional), but in my opinion, if your skin looks unhealthy or is having major issues, all the makeup in the world won’t make much difference!

What is your favorite JAVA Skin Care product? Do I have to just pick one? The lip product junkie in me loves the lip scrub & lip balm, but I also adore the body serum!

Any tip on how you use it? The body serum I apply right as I get out of the shower while my skin is still damp. I find that oils seem to absorb better & more deeply without a greasy feel when skin is wet.

Have a great week!

Need Help With That “Chicken Skin” Look On Your Arms?

This skin condition called Keratosis pilaris, is characterized by numerous small, rough, red, or tan bumps primarily around hair follicles on the upper arms, legs, and buttocks. Keratosis pilaris creates a “goose bumps,” “gooseflesh,” or “chicken skin” appearance.

Our friends and family tell us daily that our JAVA Coffee Bean and Raw Sugar Scrub exfoliates, smooths and  makes the goose bumps dissappear. Why you ask?…because of our signature infusion of green coffee and argan oil loaded with antioxidants that take our scrub to the next level.

No Way JOSÉ

Traveling to New England this week?

Make sure you bring your wellies, a good book, and some JAVA.

We’re expecting tropical storm José which will result in high surf, winds, and heavy rain along the shores of JAVA Skin Care HQ – our hometown of Narragansett, Rhode Island.
It’s a great excuse to do absolutely nothing! Sit back, brew a pot of coffee, and simply take care of yourself.

 

And, did you know:

How do you take your coffee?
I’m such a coffee-Holic. ( accent included )  I take my coffee hot with coconut milk or almond milk. Sometimes I’ll use chocolate almond milk for a low cal Mocha flavor. I use honey and cinnamon for a natural sweetener. I actually tried adding Cacao powder last week with some blue agave. That was phenomenal! I like iced coffee too.

What is your astrological sign?
I’m a Libra.
Libras are the diplomat of the zodiac. They are able to put themselves in other’s shoes and see things through another person’s point of view. We are usually the ones that always want to make things right and have balance and harmony in their life, their surroundings and the lives of the people close to them.

What in green beauty are you passionate about right now?
My friends call me “organically Jen” I’m thinking of starting a YouTube channel showing people my day to day beauty routines and what I eat. I make sure all my beauty products are gluten free/paraben free/ organic and come from natural ingredients. I have have a lot of allergies so I’m super careful. This is my lifestyle. I love going into the kitchen and making different natural masks. I’m definitely unapologetically picky when it comes to what I eat, what I put on my skin. My makeup is made from fruit from a line called 100 percent pure. I’m super passionate about chemical free makeup and making sure all my friends are knowledgeable about what they are putting on also. I bring my own makeup and products to sets. I annoy all my friends and family but they will thank me later! Sorry guys! Just looking out. 😍

What is your favorite JAVA product?
I’m seriously obsessed with the lip scrub. My boyfriend says my lips are super soft. I also really love the body oil. My legs look super sexy for red carpets and the products make me feel confident and hot.

Any tip on how you use it?

JAVA’s Five Key Ingredients

JAVA SKin Care wants your skin to look and feel glorious in a pure, healthy all-natural way. That is why we incorporate five key all-natural ingredients to “awaken your natural beauty” in a kind,  java-loving way.

d-022114-109

 

Our first key ingredient is Green Coffee (organic arabica coffee bean). It is the signature ingredient found in every JAVA Skin Care product. Cold-pressed green coffee bean extract is one of the most potent antioxidants found on earth to rejuvenate and smooth your skin. It is responsible for reducing the visibility of scar tissue, acne, and wrinkles by bringing the elasticity back into your skin!

 

 

d-022114-059

 

The second key ingredient is Artisan Roasted Coffee – roasted right in our own little coffee shop! The caffeine in the roasted coffee beans is key to minimizing red, puffy dry skin and transforming the skin’s appearance into healthy, vibrant skin (not to mention it detoxes).

The third key ingredient is Organic Argan Oil also known as a “miracle ingredient” in the skin care world. Pressed from the nut of the Argan tree in Morocco, argan oil penetrates your skin with moisture while reducing any skin irritation you might have. The argan oil works on all types of skin, no matter the time of year, to make you and your skin glow!
The fourth key insweetalmondoil_smallgredient is Sweet Almond Oil that is created from a cold press process to keep it loaded with vitamins and antioxidants to fix skin disorders such as wrinkles, acne, stretch-marks and cellulite. This Sweet Almond Oil adds an all natural fragrance to JAVA that makes you smell glorious as well.

Last but not least, the fifth key ingredient is Safflower Oil. This oil allows the moisture to not
only cling to your skin, but also lock in the moisture without clogging pores! Trust me, your skin will thank you!

 

JAVA wants you to feel & look beautiful without the harmful chemicals, dyes and fragrances.
