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.

American Psychological Association Reports Your Mood Can Affect Your Skin

Stress affects more than your thoughts.

Black America Web

Have you noticed your skin looking less than its best? You might want to get your mind and emotions in check to regain that familiar glow.

What’s on your mind could end up on your face according to a report from the American Psychological Association. It’s no secret that stress can cause you to break out, but the APA has found that negative emotions can also exacerbate a host of skin conditions.

Rick Fried, MD, added that stress, anxiety, depression and other problems affected some conditions more than others. However, that is still pulling from an extensive list. He stated, “The common dermatological issues that have been documented to be made worse by stress include acne, rosacea, psoriasis, itching, eczema, pain and hives, just to name a few,”

The findings have led for a push to advance psychodermatology in the United States. It’s already caught on in Europe, but…
