Back from the Silence

Hi everyone,

I wanted to start off by saying thank you for still following this blog and I hope you all still enjoy the content. I am sorry for not giving ample warning (or any warning for that matter) that I was going to be taking a hiatus from Aloette and my accounts.

The truth is that I realized something. I wasn’t quite ready to take Aloette to the next level. I had so much to learn about myself and what is important in life.

I have learned to be more sociable for sure but what I truly have learned this past year is who has been there for me. The Aloette sisters are some of the most kind and open ladies I know. If you would be interested in a community you can truly grow with I encourage you to visit the Aloette site to join.

My family, meeting new friends, and making people is happy is what I like best. Aloette is not really going to be a job for me, but a hobby. When I think about it as a job, I stink. When I think about it as a hobby I thrive.

I am currently in the middle of budgeting to launch my Aloette business once again. I am planning on starting this summer.

I am still on Instagram as aloettecraze and I do have my twitter as well with aloettecraze as my twitter handle. Instagram is updated more often than my twitter and has some pictures of different products I am testing and a little extra too.

I hope you are all anticipating my relaunch as much as I am. I have a good feeling about it and I will be sharing more soon. I also have an update: the website link aloette.com/rosemendoza is not valid as of now since I went on my hiatus. I am planning on having a website again soon but just a reminder if you click on any of links to that site it will not show anything. Happy Monday everyone!

Brand Name or Mix It Up?

So this is something I have been thinking about for a bit. Is it really all that important to stick with the same brand name products for your entire skin care regimen? Some people say that you should not mix it up at all because it is more effective using the same product system. Others say that it is a trick by companies for you to buy more of their products.

I am one of those people who like to have the same brand name. When I use Aloette products, I know I am getting premium aloe vera that I can’t get anywhere else and that my skin is hydrated without a super heavy lotion. However, that is only my preference.

Although it is true what I said about the aloe vera, there is no study showing that you have to use the same brand name to get the best results. What you will find is that when you use the same brand is that the results you want (clearing up acne, calming redness, rebalancing pH levels) will be more in line to the timeline they lay out for you.

Mixing up products may delay or hasten the process. But if your goal is just to get positive results for your skin then I believe all skin care products will do that for you. Another question to ask yourself is: do I want it organic or not? There are plenty of articles about blacklist ingredients in cosmetics. Read more about blacklist cosmetic ingredients here.

Experts do caution about using different brand products that contain active ingredients such as retinol, glycolic acid, salicyclic acid, or peptides (Besthealthmag.ca)

How do you feel about using different brand names in your skin care regimen? Let me know in the comments. 🙂

Essential Cleansing Oil – More Than You Think

Perhaps you are like me where you want to take care of your skin, but the thought of going through 3 steps or more sounds like too much.

That is totally okay because Aloette has what you need. Essential Cleansing Oil not only can gently remove your makeup but it can also work as a cleanser and a moisturizer. The product includes aloe vera along with sesame, avocado, olive, and safflower oils to hydrate your skin and fight the signs of aging.

The sesame oil acts as a natural sunscreen because of the vitamin E. The oil helps to calm inflamed sessential cleansing oilkin, repair damaged skin cells, and improves blood circulation (Sesame Oil for Skin)

According to Foodmatters.com, avocado oil helps to rejuvenate your skin and aids in anti-aging.

Avocado oil is rich in Vitamin E; one of the most important vitamins for your skin, and is brilliant for use daily. It is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals which damage the skin. Compared to other fruits, avocado has the highest amount of vitamin E.

Olive oil and safflower give the same benefits as the other two, but safflower adds to promoting elasticity in your skin which in turn reduces the wrinkles.

You can use this product morning and night to clean your skin. Rinse it off to reveal refreshed skin that is ready to face the day.

Cracked to Smooth

During the winter is when I look at my lips and think…ugh, gross. That familiar light and dry look. Ew you get the picture.

Why do lips get this way even in the warm seasons? According to HowStuffWorks.com, the skin on your lips soothe and smoothis thin and does not secrete any sebum like the rest of your skin does. Resulting in the peeling of your skin.

Licking your lips provides temporary relief but when it evaporates it leaves your lips even drier than before.

You could just grab some chapstick but sometimes that takes a long time to get your lips back to their smooth and healthy look. I suggest using some Soothe and Smooth.

Soothe and Smooth is not just a lip balm but an exfoliate that gently removes the flaky and dry skin to reveal velvety lips. Don’t sit there suffering when ease is just clicks away.

Peppermint Foot Balm

You may already know the benefits of peppermint for calming your stomach, relieving your stuffy nose, and other important advantages. But did you know that it can also improve circulation?peppermint foot balm

When peppermint “touches the end of the olfactory nerve endings, there is an almost instant increase in pulse rate and blood circulation” (Organic Facts).

Aloette offers our Peppermint Foot Balm that not only has the peppermint, but our exclusive, premium aloe vera to hydrate your skin. When you use the foot balm after a bath or a shower it helps to restore your skin back to its healthier state.

There will be challenges to keeping your skin from producing calluses or becoming flaky. But this is a simple addition to your skin care routine that will make a world of difference. Just try it. Your feet will thank you. 🙂

Muddy Up

Mud masks are very beneficial because the mud is negatively charged and the toxins in your skin are positively charged. So using a mud mask on a regular basis can bring your pH balance back to normal. Using a mud mask has other great benefits such as providing relief for skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis, acne), renewing elasticity in your skin, and preventing hair loss.

Aloette’s Muddy Up, with our exclusive Aloeganic Aloe Vera, also contains Calcium Bentonite, Cucumber Extract, and Salicylic Acid. What do this ingredients do for you?

Aloeganic Aloe Vera assures that the other active ingredients can penetrate your skin to work more effectively. It also soothes and calms your skin.

Cucumber Extract soothes and calms your skin’s appearance.

Salicylic Acid gently exfoliates and renews.

With our Muddy Up it is simple to use. Just apply to your face and wait until dry cracks appear and then rinse off with warm water.

Restorative Enzyme Peel

Our Restorative Enzyme Peel is an ideal, organic alternative to traditional chemical peels. 

According to DOCSTOP

“Common chemical peel side effects include stinging, redness, and peeling of the skin, and they should be expected by any patient who undergoes a chemical peel.” 

and

“In the United States, a chemical peel costs from $600 to $900 on average. However, the cost of your chemical peel will vary widely depending on the type of peel you choose, the cost of living in your region, and other factors, and may be as low as $150 for a light peel and as high as $6000 for a deep peel. It is important to note that this chemical peel price range encompasses the doctor’s fee only. Other fees associated with the chemical peel procedure, such as those for anesthesia, operating room use, and a possible hospital stay should also be taken into account when you consider undergoing a chemical peel.”

The Restorative Enzyme Peel is extremely gentle on skin and does not cause redness or pain. The only side effect from this product is that your dead skin gets removed to reveal your beautiful, healthy skin! Safe enough to be used every other day, although it is recommended that you use it only once or twice a week.

The steps to keep in mind are:

1. Make sure skin is dry and clean. Don’t put this on after a shower.

2. Rub product on in a circular motion and then leave on for 60-90 seconds.

3. Rub product after one minute in a circular motion to get off dead skin cells.

4. Rinse or wipe off.

5. Enjoy smooth skin!

The best part is that you get 30 treatments for just $40.95! If this sounds like the product for you then click here!
