Love Your Beautiful Self

I like looking my best and that has a lot to do with creating the organic Menrva’s Kiss Shea Nerium Skin Creme products. Still, we must not forget that true beauty comes from the inside. Sure, it’s wonderful to take good care of ourselves and to look our best, but we have nothing if we can’t see the real beauty that shines brightest.


Aloe Vera as a Facial Cleanser

It started innocently, my daughter and I both had good luck with a facial product that was 80 percent aloe vera. Good news for two women that have sensitive skin and are prone to break-outs. That morphed into me using straight aloe vera juice to wash my face, a practice I have enjoyed for about ten years now. Why spend lots of money on expensive facial products when we have the wonderful aloe vera juice that is organic and helps heal the skin while we wash?

I keep a small plastic bottle in the bathroom, put two to three drops of tea tree oil in it for a preservative and then fill it with aloe vera juice. In the evening I rub it into my face, rinse and then repeat the process. Then I apply a layer on my face before applying my Menrva’s Kiss. I tend to put the Menrva’s Kiss on heavy and blot off the excess, but many people apply it sparingly and have just as good of results. Sometimes I leave the heavy layer on for a couple of minutes before blotting off the excess.

When in the bath I apply a layer of aloe vera juice on my face, leave it sit for a few moments and the scrape my facial skin with my fingernails for exfoliation and I repeat two more times for a total of three applications. Of course, you could use some sort of facial exfoliation device rather than your fingernails. I keep my nails short and this works for me.

After bathing, I apply aloe vera juice over my entire body and then apply Menrva’s Kiss. Usually, I use the Super Shea Nerium Skin Creme on my body and the Super 8 Shea Nerium Skin Creme on my face. Using Menrva’s Kiss as an all-over body cream has worked marvelously for me. My skin is very soft, scars have faded and the small ones disappeared and my twenty-eight year old stretch marks faded. While you can still see the stretch marks you sort of have to look for them now.

Due to having Lyme Disease I try to live as organically and chemically free as possible. That is what led me to create an organic skin care product that includes nerium oleander. If I’m not careful with exposure I get migraines, but found that if I drink large quantities of aloe vera juice the migraine will almost always go away.

Trying to keep it fantastic, but simple here! Hope you like your Menrva’s Kiss as much as I do.

Menrva’s Kiss for the Face and Full Body

Beautiful skin should not stop with your face and Menrva’s Kiss is priced economically so you are able to use it as an all over body creme. I apply Super Menrva’s Kiss on my face morning and night and also over my entire body after bathing.

For the face: First I wash with aloe vera, the same aloe vera juice that I drink daily. After applying aloe vera to my face and rinsing twice I apply the aloe vera juice once more and leave it on my skin. With my skin damp from aloe vera I follow with the Menrva’s Kiss Super Shea Nerium Skin Creme. The same procedure could be used with Menrva’s Kiss Shea Nerium Skin Creme. Usually, I pat off the excess with a towel. If I don’t my skin feels too greasy. My friend washes with aloe vera and follows with a much smaller amount of Menrva’s Kiss and he’s having great results. I’m probably using more than I need to.

For the whole body: Ahh… talk about luxury and at such an economical price. I love what Menrva’s Kiss is doing for my skin, face and body! My skin is very soft and that includes my feet and the dreaded heel area. I love how it has evened out my skin tone and is fading scars and 28 year old stretch marks. Some small scars have vanished (as have acne scars on my face). The really cool things is, my skin felt softer right away.

After I bath I splash the aloe vera juice on my entire body and then apply a thin layer of Menrva’s Kiss Super Shea Nerium Skin Creme (same procedure for Menrva’s Kiss Shea Nerium Skin Creme). Problem areas get the creme first and I spread out from there. For me that means my knees, feet and the skin near my underarms that used to look wrinkly. Again, if I spread it on too thick I blot my skin lightly with a towel before dressing. Also, I’m careful not to get it in my hair or it will look greasy. That gets me thinking though and I will soon see how Menrva’s Kiss works as a hair treatment.

If I’m careful a jar will last me a month for my face and body both. If I’m really spreading it on thick then I need a refill after three weeks.

Aloe vera will go bad if left out of the refrigerator for too long, so I keep a small bottle in the bath that has a two or three day supply in it. So far I haven’t had a problem with it spoiling.

By the way, I used to get chronic migraines until I began drinking a gallon of aloe vera juice a week. After one week the migraines became headaches and three weeks later no migraines or headaches. If I feel one coming on I drink a huge glass of aloe vera juice. After six years of chronic migraines I am beyond happy to have discovered such a simple cure. Between aloe vera juice and taking food grade diatomaceos earth twice a day my lyme disease symptoms have vanished. Most feed stores have food grade diatomaceos earth (I pay $0.99 a pound for mine).

Enjoy your Menrva’s Kiss!

Facelift Naturally

I have been practicing facial acupressure for over ten years and if I don’t press my facial points I will notice a difference after three days. While I highly recommended the book I learned from ‘Facelift Naturally’ has it beat.

The author, Julia M. Busch, makes it easy with clear instructions and a fail-proof system for finding the points. Once you learn the system then you may practice when you have a few minutes, I rarely perform the entire treatment all at once. By following the exercises in the book you will reduce wrinkles, puffiness and tighten up the skin and you will also feel more relaxed and enjoy some improvement in your health.

The book is reasonably priced and performing the treatments is a FREE and painless procedure with no negative side effects (only positive).
