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.
