It is that time of the year again!



Fall and soon to be Winter months will be here and this is the time of the year where the weather is very dry.  During the winter your skin has to deal with strong winds, cold air, heat from our heaters, rain, snow, sleet and the lack of sun since we have less sun during the Fall and Winter months.  Our skin gets dry, ashy  along with our dry cracked lips. Ugh that is no fun having really dry cracked lips.  So our skin goes through a lot during the course of these months.  So during the driest time of the year we need to moisturize, exfoliate. First we need to cleanse our skin.  Cleansing creams, lotions and items with milk are a great way to cleanse. They don’t contain your typical sulfates or harsh detergents. Try products such as yogurts, milk, and even our Shea Butter lotions which are excellent for the Fall and Winter months.Tone up your skin and put away the astringents. Your skin needs healing and to be soothed.  After using a good cleansing cream for your face, try a moisturizing toner afterwards.  It will help sooth your skin.  We have a wonderful moisturizing toner that would be a great addition to your facial care treatments.

  Botanical Facial Cleanser and Toner

Our Creamy Facial Cleanser is gentle cleanser is softening and soothing to the skin. This facial cleanser has great conditioning properties of a lotion. The mild foaming action is derived from sources like corn, coconut and sugar beets and emulsified to a creamy consistency. It has added Chamomile, Aloe, Cucumber and Japanese Green Tea extracts, each used to soothe, tighten and act as an anti-oxidant on the skin. These botanicals can assist in epidermal problems and inflammation, each with extensive historical data. This is gentle for all skin types and suitable for daily use.

Our Moisturizing facial toner feels so cool on your skin and it takes away any remaining dirt that your soap residue, scrubs or masks and leaves it soft and smooth. This Facial toner is an important part of your facial regimen.

Moisturize, Moisturize and Moisturize.  This is a must for dry Fall and Winter months. I would suggest choosing heavier  type creams . Your face will feel the effects of the dry air on your face especially around the eyes, nose and lips.  If your skin feels tight dry and itchy is because of the lack of moisture in the air. Avoiding taking hot showers during this time of the year as this will make matters much worse.   I recommend products with Jojoba oils, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter  and Olive oils. These are great for severe tough dry skin.  We have great products that I use every single day on my skin.

Whipped Unrefined Shea Butter

This is our new Whipped Shea Body Butter. It contains a combination of unrefined Shea butters and oils to help nourish and soothe the skin. This Shea Butter has a natural nutty scent which smells wonderful. Similar to cocoa butter. This will come to you unscented but if you like to have this scented, I would suggest something with a creamy or vanilla type fragrance so it won't clash with the nutty natural scent it already has. 

Our Whipped Shea Butter is a natural combination of skin moisturizers with no artificial colors, or petroleum products that can irritate skin and clog pores, Whipped Shea Butter is great for keeping skin healthy all year long. You'll be left with only smooth, lustrous skin. It is whipped to a very light and fluffy texture that only a little on the tips of your fingers will do the trick



Cocoa Butter Body Cream

Our Cocoa Butter body cream includes Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter, which both of these butters are excellent for the skin. Both butters help reduces the appearances of scars, blemishes,and other imperfections in the skin. In addition, we added Vitamin E and C.

This cream has a wonderful natural scent of the cocoa butter and is great all on its own without any fragrances added. Once applied, it absorbs very quickly without ANY greasy feeling and you will begin to smell the natural cocoa butter

Exfoliate:  I like to exfoliate at least twice a week.  I love using sugar scrubs and oatmeal scrubs.  Our oatmeal scrubs have a base of oatmeal and goats milk that helps soothe dry skin and give a light gentle scrub.  Exfoliate  your skin with cream, milk, butters or oatmeal based ingredients with lots of skin loving oils to help your skin soak up the oils.  Sugar scrubs are excellent treatment for rough, peeling and scaley skin.   Sugar scrubs are gentle enough to use twice a week.  Take particular notice to your feet.  Your important because we are on them all day long and when you have rough, bad and feet that hurt, you don’t feel good. Nothing worse than having your feet hurt.  Ugh not good. Try some of our wonderful sugar scrubs made with organic oils and butters.  Great for exfoliating rough dry areas such as knees, elbows, feet and the face.
 
Now for the shower and bath.  One of the best benefits of applying oils and creams is right during or right after the shower.  The heat and steam from the shower allows your skin to absorb moisture.  The rich oils help protect your skin a soft glow.  Like taking baths, try using our Cocoa Butter Bath Melts. I love how my skin feels after taking a long relaxing bath. My skin feels so soft and no need for any lotions or creams after adding these to your bath. 

 Oatmeal and Goats Milk Bath Bags

Try these wonderful Goats Milk
Bath Bags. Loaded with Colloidal oatmeal, goats milk powder, Pink Himalayan Salts, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and comes with your choice of Lavender, Chamomile, Peppermint, Rosemary Mint and Rose Petals. 

 So don’t neglect your skin during these months.  Take care of it and your skin will be much improved when the Spring and Summer months return.
