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.

Taking Care of Your Feet

Feet are often the most overlooked part of skincare. Some thoughts for me have been, No one will see them. I will have to buy expensive foot creams to make my feet look beautiful! 

For years I would put on lotion. Heavy creams even and it would look okay for maybe an hour and then my skin on my feet would make me want to put some socks on or hope that no one would look down if I wore sandals.

Last year I found a solution to my problem. I asked my colleague, Melissa, what she suggested. Aloette offers great products for your foot care needs!

1. Restorative Enzyme Peel is a wonderful exfoliate that takes 60-90 seconds to scrub away the dry or flaky skin that is on your feet. This exfoliate is gentle enough to be used every other day if your skin has hard calluses.

2. Using the Peppermint Foot Balm after you use the Enzyme Peel will not only moisturize your skin on your feet, but the peppermint in the lotion will increase the circulation in your feet which is great for restoring the skin to health.

It may take a month or so of repeating this procedure depending on how rough your skin is on your feet. You will see improved skin every time you use these products.

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.

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!
