Coffee Time!

 

Pain du MondeAfter all of the Holiday season rush, the office needed a little break.  It was a beautiful winter day in southern California, so we decided to walk down the street to a little coffee shop, called Pain du Monde.  The tree leaves had turned a beautiful red and green color!   Such a great way to relax and get some fresh air.  However, after that little break, it’s back to work for us!   Take a look at our yummy drinks.

4 Simple Ways to Rehydrate Dry Winter Skin

The cold, dry weather takes a toll on your skin, making it dry, flakey, and irritated.  No one wants to have red, flakey skin during all the holiday parties, so here are a few ways to keep your skin healthy during the winter:

  1. Drink lots of liquids- Water can do wonders for your skin.  H2O keeps your skin hydrated and clears out toxins from your body, keeping your skin clear and blemish free.  If you want to try something different other than just plain water, give green tea a try.  Green tea has amazing health benefits.  Green tea is filled with antioxidants and other healthy ingredients.  Research indicates that it can help reduce cholesterol levels, fight plaque, flush out toxins, and hydrate your skin.  So, next time you step out into the cold winter weather, be sure to carry a cup of warm green tea with you!
  2. Use a humidifier- Although the warm heater air feels great, the dry heat often dries and irritates our skin.  Use a humidifier to add moisture back into the air.  If you don’t have a humidifier, use steam from your shower or sink.  The steam or moist air from your humidifier will keep you skin healthy and hydrated.
  3. Shower with warm water- As much as we all love a hot, soothing shower during the winter, the hot water actually dries out your skin.  The extreme temperatures strip away your skin’s natural oils that help protect your skin from harsh weather and keep your skin hydrated.  Without the protective oils, water from you skin escapes.  Using mild soaps that are oil-infused can replace the natural oils that are often removed by the hot water.  Soaps with healing ingredients like aloe can soothe your irritated skin.  Our customers love to use Naive’s Aloe Body Soap during the winter season to defend their skin against the harsh weather.
  4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!-  The most helpful thing that you can do to prevent dry winter skin is use a daily moisturizer!  The moisturizer acts as a protective barrier that hydrates and protects your skin.  The best time to use a moisturizer is immediately after a warm shower.  Apply moisturizer straight out of the shower to prevent water from evaporating from your skin.  Use Japan’s best-selling facial mask, Hadabisei Facial Moisturizing Mask, to keep your facial skin clean and healthy, or try one of our customers’ all-time favorites, Shiseido Fine Toiletry’s Senka Facial Lotion.  People often think that since it’s winter, sunscreen isn’t necessary.  Although it may be cold, harmful UV rays that can cause wrinkles and even skin cancer still reach us.  Therefore, be sure to use a moisturizer with SPF in it.   

With these 4 easy steps, your skin will be healthy and you’ll be happy all throughout winter!
