Winter time is upon us! In addition to the challenges it brings of staying warm and well, winter also challenges us to keep our skin well moisturized. There is less moisture in the air than in other seasons and with the cold temperatures and occasional high winds,  our skin can suffer from excessive dryness, redness and even cracking.

Our favorite skin care line, Privai, offers a number of products to aid in keeping your skin healthy during the winter. These include:

*Privai Ultra Restore Cream is formulated for dry, sensitive skin and hydrates it without leaving a greasy film. Ultra Restore is enriched with the antioxidants, vitamins and minerals found in rose oil, shea butter and kukui nut oil.

*Privai Nourishing Face and Body Oil is enriched with chamomile, geranium and lavendar to soothe, balance and hydrate the skin. It’s safe for those with nut allergies and safe for all skin types.

*Privai Ultra Rich Body Butter repairs dry skin with nourishing Shea Butter while crisp Rosemary Leaf Extract promotes skin cell renewal and circulation.

Another favorite skin care line, formulated specifically for men, is Organic Male. It offers specially formulated products for men’s dry skin challenges such as its thirst quenching Moisture Complex. One satisfied customer states,

“ I use this product every day, and it is a lifesaver. It is the only relief I’ve been able to find for chronically dry skin, and a little bit goes a long way.”

The key ingredients in Moisture Complex are:
