5 Essential Madinina Kiss Items to Keep Your Skin Hydrated to Get That Gorgeous Winter Glow.

After Fall comes Winter!!!! Now What? Between Dry Skin and Dry Hair, keeping our skin and hair moisturized seems to be a challenge.  In my blog Why We Need to Exfoliate, I talked about how to transition from Summer Skin Care into a Fall Skin Care Regime.  I talked about the benefits of sugar body scrubs, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter as your go-to moisture “Super-Heroes”

As the leaves change in fall, you may notice changes in your skin as well. You can easily develop rough, dry, and itchy skin during the colder months, especially if you live in an area where you’re exposed to cold, dry air and harsh winds.  This is why Madinina Kiss created its natural skin care line to help combat the seasonal changes that cause dry itchy skin.

In this blog, I want to really dive into why you may have dry skin in the winter, and then some suggested steps to prevent it from becoming a seasonal problem.

8 Reasons for Seasonal Dry Skin

First, understand why you may have dry skin in winter, and then take steps to prevent it from becoming a seasonal problem.

  1. Cold, dry air. Cold air has less moisture than warm or hot air. “Cold air can be intensely drying,” Dr. Banks says. To keep winter air from drying out your skin, apply a moisturizer daily. Moisturizers work by locking water into your skin’s top layer, so apply after bathing, while skin is still damp. During winter, a heavier lotion or cream can help your skin retain moisture longer, especially for rough or extra dry areas.
  2. Harsh winds. Strong winter winds can strip your skin of its natural lipids, which are the most important part of the skin barrier and keep skin from drying out. Cover up to protect against the wind by wearing a hat and a scarf, and apply a moisturizer with sunscreen before heading outdoors. Don’t forget your sunglasses, Banks says, which help protect the delicate skin around your eyes.
  3. Home, hot home. The heat in your house, especially if it’s a forced- air system, can be drying as well. To overcome this problem, use a humidifier to add moisture back into the air. If you don’t want to install a whole-house humidifier, at least consider a unit for your bedroom, and sleep with the door closed so the moist air doesn’t escape.
  4. A toasty fire. It may be awfully inviting to sit by a fireplace on a cold winter’s day, but “the heat from the toasty fire also can toast your skin,” Banks says. “Dead skin builds up quicker in dry heat.” To help prevent dry skin in winter, don’t light a fire — or at least stay farther away from its glow, and limit your time sitting by the fire.
  5. Hot showers and baths. “A hot shower can feel great when you’ve been out in the cold, dry air all day,” Banks says, “but it is actually very bad for your skin.” To prevent your skin from becoming dry, use lukewarm rather than hot water. When you shower, don’t make it a long one — aim for a maximum of 10 minutes. If you take a bath, adding a few drops of lavender or almond oil or colloidal (finely ground) oatmeal to the water can help soothe your skin. Your bathing products can make a difference, too. Don’t cleanse with products that can dry the skin, such as highly alkaline and detergent soaps. Then, “use your moisturizer within a minute or so of getting out of a shower or bath, as damp skin traps the water and locks in moisture,” Banks adds.
  6. Hot drinks. On a cold winter’s day, who doesn’t feel like warming up with a cup of hot coffee, hot chocolate, or even a hot toddy? However, coffee and chocolate contain caffeine, and “caffeine can dry your skin from the inside,” Banks says. And if you’re drinking a hot toddy, be aware that alcohol is a diuretic and has a dehydrating effect on your body, too. Instead, aim to add moisture to your skin from the inside as well as the outside. “It’s important to drink lots of water and stay hydrated,” Banks says. “For each cup of caffeine or glass of wine you drink, make sure you drink at least one glass of water.” Even better, replace your coffee or hot chocolate with a mug of chamomile or another herbal tea, which doesn’t contain caffeine.
  7. Winter clothing. That wool sweater grandma knitted for you may be cozy, but it can cause irritation and leave you with itchy skin. Choose clothing made of soft fabrics like cotton or silk instead. If you need to wear a wool sweater for warmth, layer it over a shirt made of cotton or silk so that it doesn’t rub against your skin. If you have sensitive skin, use mild, unscented, hypoallergenic laundry detergents and avoid fabric softener when washing your clothes and linens.
  8. The sun. Most people know the sun can damage skin in the summer when it’s the strongest, but winter sun can be just as damaging… “Even if you can’t feel the heat of the sun, the ultraviolet (UV) rays are still present, and therefore you’re still at risk for sun damage.” Always apply a natural sunscreen, like coconut oil, if you’re going outside in the daytime, even when the temperatures are near or below freezing. Use sunscreen on any exposed areas, especially your lips, with SPF 30 or above. “Even if it’s cold and windy, you still sweat, so remember to reapply sunscreen,” Banks says.

The winter winds and cold temperatures can do a number on your skin. But you can prevent your skin from getting dry, itchy, and damaged if you moisturize regularly, wear protective clothing and sunscreen, and take other smart precautions.

No need to fear! Madinina Kiss is here to the rescue!  Our line of natural skin care line provides the perfect solution to seasonal skin woes.

Here are the 5 Essential Madinina Kiss Items that will keep your skin hydrated.

1.Brown Sugar Body Scrubs

sugar-scrub-1

A natural humectant, brown sugar is known for drawing moisture out of the environment and depositing it into your skin. Our Brown Sugar Scrubs are a perfect exfoliant and will help you retain moisture in your skin during Fall/Winter season. Why is that, you ask?  Brown Sugar contains a natural glycolic acid—an essential component of alpha hydroxy acid family, making it a natural exfoliator for breaking down & removing dead skin cells.

2. Body Butter

4oz_shea-butter-blend-6593

The body butter is a nutrient dense cream used to hydrate the skin. There are various types of body butter such as shea butter, cocoa butter, mango, and kukui nut. Shea butter comes from the African shea nut tree. Cocoa butter comes directly from the cocoa seeds. Many pregnant women apply cocoa butter to their growing bellies to prevent stretch marks. Mango butter comes from mango seeds and is loaded with extra vitamin C. Kukui body butter is derived from the Kukui tree found in Hawaii. This body butter treat is chock full of vitamins A and E.  Madinina Kiss uses only three of the four kinds of butter listed,  Shea, Cocoa, and Mango.  Our Butter Blends are made with not only the wonderful butter mentioned but also the added moisturizing oils of coconut, grapeseed, and/or olive.  We sometimes use safflower oil, for our customers who may be allergic to coconut.

3. Body Oil

“Oils have a locking and protective nature,” explains REN Skincare Ambassador David Leigh Delport. “They improve cell cohesion, meaning that they can limit transepidermal water loss.”  While lotions and creams can also provide moisture, a change of formula, especially during the winter season, might be exactly what your skin needs. “The skin’s ability to retain moisture becomes compromised with time so you might apply a rich moisturizer and still feel dry,” says Tatcha founder Vicky Tsai. “A good beauty oil is formulated to seal in moisture and humectants.”  Madinina Kiss Body Oils offers four kinds of oil blends, formulated to not only hydrate but have an aromatherapeutic scent so you can “smell good”.

 

4. Hair Butter Cream

Moisture is essential for great natural coils and curls. When your hair feels a bit rough, and dry and looks that way too, this is the jar to reach for. Part of the Kiss Me Nature “Madinina” Hair Care System™, this Conditioning Butter Cream is a rich emollient blend, graced with the finest array of natural butter and organic oils. It gets the job done.  Our hair butter is made with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Neem Oil and Avocado oil to give you the maximum moisturizer for your hair.

5. Dead Sea Salt

Dead Sea salt is a gift that the majestic waters have given us and the skin care properties make it even more special. If you want to make your body go through that perfect healing and cleaning experience, go ahead and start using a Dead Sea salt scrub. Scrubbing your body with Dead Sea salt is going to add to its health and would at the same time provide it with the nourishment required.  Dead Sea salt body scrub detoxifies the skin making it go all healthy and germ-free. This is the scrub that would beautify you, cutting down those years of your body and make you look young and feel energetic.  Dead Sea Salt scrub would moisturize the skin, fight germs and reduce the appearance of signs of aging to a great extent!  And we have added some essential oils that are sure to help you relax.

 Your skin is the first line of defense, therefore we need to make sure Madinina Kiss use only NATURAL products for our skin protectant products.

On Her Own Ground-Madam C.J. Walker

I will admit that I don’t know all of the African Americans that made an impact in the way we live today.  I don’t know every inventor or entrepreneur.  But I was pretty sure that I knew enough to have a decent, intelligent conversation about certain people. Harriet Tubman, Fredrick Douglas, W.E.B Dubois, Nat Turner, and my favorite Madame C.J. Walker. So when a trivia question was asked about the First African American Female Millionaire, I was the first to answer “Madame C.J. Walker!!!”  Wrong!…what do you mean wrong? As the CEO and Founder of Madinina Kiss, a Bath and Body Products Company, Madame C.J. Walker has been my inspiration…still is.  She is my role model. But she had one too. Her name is Annie Malone.   In my recent blog, entitled The Mother of the Black Beauty Industry, I wrote about Annie Malone who is recorded as the U.S.’s first black female millionaire based on reports of $14 million in assets held in 1920 from her beauty and cosmetic enterprises, headquartered in St. Louis and Chicago.

I am currently re-reading On Her Own Ground which is only the first comprehensive biography of one of recent history’s most amazing entrepreneurs and philanthropists, it is about a woman who is truly an African American icon in the beauty industry.

Learning about Annie Malone only confirms what I know: Someone has already started building the bridge on which I will walk.  Madame C.J Walker had Annie Malone and I have Madame C.J Walker and Miko and Titi Branch of Miss Jessie’s Products.  I am currently reading Madam C.J. Walker: Building a Business Empire and Miss Jessie’s “Creating A Successful Business From Scratch…Naturally”  I want to know what they did to make their businesses great.  From slavery to millionaire… From South Jamaica Queens, NY (Where I am from) to Millionaire.  If they can do it, so can I.

Madinina Kiss recently re-launched its Hair Care System, called Madinina.  We currently have the Madinina Conditioning Hair Butter made primarily with Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Neem Oil and Kokum Butter, which is a customer favorite.

So in honor of Black History Month, I will be reading about Madam C.J. Walker, the business woman.  I cannot wait to learn from her because Madinina Kiss is going to be the next Bath and Body Products Empire!

 

How are you honoring Black History Month?

4 things to do to prepare your skin in the Winter for the Spring

 

The title can be a little misleading.  You should not let your skin go without the proper skin care regimen as your skin is the first defense and the firs thing people see.

It’s not just the snow melting and flowers blooming that changes from winter to spring when the season’s change, but you may also notice a difference in your skin. Since our skin is very sensitive to the world around us, helping it transition during the changing season by revisiting your skincare routine will help to optimize your best-looking skin.

We’ve created a list of skin care suggestions to help transition your skincare regimen from winter to spring.

EXFOLIATE

exfoliate

We have blogged about the importance of exfoliating on numerous occasions, but in case you still need proof, here is what Pure Fiji has to share about why we need to exfoliate: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, leaving you with skin that is naturally beautiful, soft and radiant. Madinina Kiss offers excellent exfoliating products for all types of skin.  We love Coconut oil as a carrier oil and we add, brown or white sugar–depending on how sensitive your skin is and dead sea salt–to help detoxify your skin.  As CEO, my personal preference is our Brown Sugar Scrub.  I don’t mind the coarseness of it, even on my face.  Some of my clients, on the other hand, prefer the White Sugar Scrub, because it is less abrasive, especially on the face.  As for our multi-purpose Dead Sea Salt Scrub,  it is perfect in conjunction with a detoxification regimen as it helps lift any toxin that may release through your skin’s pores.  It is important to note however that, you must drink plenty of fluids if you choose to this method.  Unlike sugar scrubs, which help retain moisture, salt scrubs do the exact opposite.  Still, these methods both lead to a radiant and glowing skin.

MOISTURIZE

4oz_shea-butter-blend-6593

What better way to keep your skin soft, supple and moisturized than with Madinina Kiss’ Body Butter Blends.  We off three varieties of butter: Shea, Cocoa, and Mango.  We blend our butter with organic Coconut Oil, refined or unrefined; or for our customers with nut allergies, we blend with Grapeseed Oil or Olive oil.  Apply our body butter, daily and especially after a shower or bath.

WATER

No need to tell you about the benefits of water in and out.  But there are plenty of people like me out there who do not enjoy just plain water.  If you are one those persons, try infusing your water with fresh or frozen fruits or vegetables.  My personal favorite: Lime and Cucumber in the Summer and Orange and Strawberries in the Spring.  Winter and Fall seasons, I just default to Lemon.  It is important to try to drink half of your weight in ounces of water or at least 64 oz. Doing this will hydrate you naturally from the inside out.  A natural alternative is Coconut Water.  It contains electrolytes that natural hydrate the body.

 

FOOD

veggies

Fruits and Veggies are very important as part of your diet to keep your body and your skin healthy and glowing.  Incorporating a healthy dose of fruits and veggies also helps in maintaining a healthy digestives track, thus, lessening the chance of retaining toxins from all of the processed foods that we intake.  While, of course, it is best to eat as organically as possible, it just does not always work that way.

Madinina Kiss cares about your skin, in and out.  Make these four tips a part of your Natual Skin Care Regimen and Lifestyle.  Your body will love you for it!!

Stay Healthy and Blessed,

Same Great Product, New Name

All Things Change

Change is good, but also hard if it comes as a complete surprise.  I was not ready for the change.  But change is good.  Madinina Kiss is now the new name of our company.  I wont bore you with  the details as to why we had to change the name, but I will say that it came at a time when I was excited about the progress and growth of our company.  And BAM! just like that…CHANGE happened.

Why the name Madinina Kiss

Throughout this blog, I talked a lot about my roots, more specifically my Grand-Mother who was born and raised on the Island of Martinique.  You see, before Christopher Columbus arrived, the inhabitants, the Awarak’s named the island “Madinina” which means Island of Flowers. It didn’t take me long to come up with a new name.  Looking back, it was all part of the “Great Plan.”I had already named my hair care product “Madinina Hair Care System”

madinina-flower

 

What’s New???

Seasons change right? Especially now that we are transitioning for Summer to Fall. We have been working hard during the re branding to expand our product line. Known for our Shea Butter Body Butters, we have included the following to our product line: Cocoa Butter and Mango Butter. We are so excited!!!  We are also adding a nice collection of brown Sugar Body Scrubs. Simple and unique just in time for the Fall.
