Winter Skin Protection

Posted Jan 22 2012 1:20am

Depending on where you live January can be especially brutal on our skin. Protecting and caring for you skin this time of the year doesn't have to be a challenge.

  • Cleansing - avoiding harsh soaps and products with sulfates is key and a must to keep your skin from being stripped of moisture, and feeling two sizes two small. Also as tempting as it is, avoid taking long hot showers and baths...turn down the hot faucet and keep it short and sweet!


  • Exfoliation - this is a must and is overlooked more than anything. Do not put lotion on dead skin cells! Everyday we lose about 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells even though we can't see it happening. A dried out skin cell looks like the letter C. It is not round, whole and plump. A nice plump skin cell does not wrinkle and holds water in the right amount. Exfoliating removes dead cell buildup, and prepares the skin for healthy new cells. Jordan Essentials uses salt in their scrub because salt itself is a very therapeutic mineral.


  • Hydration and Protection - Our shea butter is made with a moisture-rich butter obtained from the nut of the Karite tree in Central Africa, also known as Karite butter and African butter. It is a superb emollient idea; for uses in skin moisturizers. It helps enhance cell regeneration and capillary circulation, which assists in the healing of small wounds, cracks, and crevices in the skin. Apply right out of the shower after patting dry, and while your skin is still damp. Shea butter is renowed for its skin softening and moisture retaining ability. She butter is so great for the skin as its high content of fatty acids. It is also high in Vitamin E.


  • Lotion Bar - This seals the deal! It is an amazing product that began Jordan Essentials Bath & Body in 2000. All bars are hand poured and come in a tin. There's no water content, they are made of beeswax and Vitamin E, and stay sanitary and free from bacteria. When customers first see them they automatically think it's soap until we explain and show them how to use it! When you hold it the warmth from your hands softens the bar and you rub back and forth, then simply put it back in the tin. You can travel with it so anytime you need a little moisture you have your handy lotion bar!

All Jordan Essentials products are made here in the U.S.A. without harsh chemicals. Those of you that may be sensitive to fragrance or dyes can choose from the unscented line! We have you covered with affordable skin care solutions for the entire family.
