Winter Skin Tips

The number one cause of wrinkles is dehydration of the skin, which happens more frequently in the winter months. The cold air slows down the body’s ability to hydrate the face and other body parts by pulling what little moisture your skin has away from the face. Dehydration of the face also makes our faces itchy. Scratching and rubbing can tear or irritate blood capillaries causing unwanted redness. So, how can you protect your skin during the winter months?

S.O.S. Emergency Cream (for Women)
The S.O.S Emergency Cream is perfect for sensitive and irritated skin due to stress, poor diet, or dehydration after sports. This product is formulated to heal irritated skin and restore much needed balance. It provides soothing relief, works as a great base for make-up, and aids in eliminating blemishes. The Lavender Absolute in it rapidly repairs damaged skin and heals scarring, while the Myrrh Essential oil’s regenerating, anti-inflammatory, and anti-itching properties help soothe skin.

S.O.S. Survival Cream (for Men)
The S.O.S. Survival Cream is formulated as a high performance skin treatment cream. This daily moisturizer is the optimum solution for sensitivity, irritation, dryness and blemishes. The Lavender Absolute and Myrrh instantly soothe problem areas, such as sensitivity or irritation after shaving, and leave the skin perfectly hydrated and comfortable. This cream is ideally used after sports or outdoor activities.

Second Year of the Winter Coffee Pecan Porter

When the temperature drops there are a few things that become necessities: scarves, hats, mittens, wool socks and my morning cup of coffee.

When I sense that smell I know our coffee roaster Julian Vargas is busy at work at... Full Post >
