It Was 1 degree this morning, burrrrr…
Cold, dry winter air takes a toll on our delicate lips.
Here’s a quick way to help remedy this right in your own kitchen ~
In a small bowl mix together : 1/4 Teas Coconut Oil with 1/8 Teas Sugar. Apply to lips gently and rub to exfoliate and lubricate. Wipe off with a damp paper towel. Yummy !
For the finishing touch, try ISUN Antioxidant Lip Balm.

I’m doing a HaPpY dance…
This morning I woke up to this email from MindBodyGreen (mbg)
Quote: “Despite the fact that we’re only two weeks in, I’m going to go ahead and call it now: 2016 is the year of hyaluronic acid. Even the New York Times agrees, deeming this the “second coming” of the acid’s popularity. (I don’t remember the “first coming,” but given that this stuff has been around for decades, I believe it happened.)
~ Allie White, MGC Editor
Why am I exceptionally HaPpY ?
Aliven Gele’s second ingredient is Hyaluronic !
Now that’s a lot of hyaluronic… we’re on to something awesome here!
Benefits of Hyaluronic in Aliven Gele’
Holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water
Hydrating, making skin moist and supple
Excellent conductor of electricity due to its water binding capabilities
Naturally occurring inside our body
Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes a slight plumping.
This plumping helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a more youthful appearance
This subtle plumping increases volume, making younger looking skin
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the dermis of the skin makes it even more appealing as a skin care ingredient
People are increasingly looking for products that contain natural ingredients that aren’t toxic and won’t harm or irritate skin.
The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database classifies it as an ingredient with a low potential for toxicity and gives it a high safety rating.
Non-irritating to skin
Does not leave a “greasy” feel to the skin.
You can use Aliven Gele’ as a Hydrating Serum
Simply apply a small amount around eye area to help hydrate and plump fine lines. Apply as a hydrating serum under other serums, moisturizers or masks.
In the treatment room, use it with MicroCurrent, LED, ultrasonic and any other device needing a conducting medium.
Aliven Gele’. More than “just” a micro current gel… A luxurious, nutritious, clean and healthy hydrating serum gele’. That’s a mouthful !
InJoy using Aliven Gele’ on you and your clients skin !
Cheers to Hyaluronic,

Why We Have Algae Extract in Aliven Gele’
A very important reason for using micro current on our clients’ skin is for stimulating ATP or adenosine triphosphate.
ATP is manufactured in the cells mitochondria. The mitochondria are the energy source of all cells. ATP is the fuel to all of life’s activities..
Our algae extract in Aliven Gele’ significantly increases ATP production in mitochondria by up to 40% without the use of micro current. Add in micro current with Aliven Gele’ and you are significantly energizing your clients’ skin.
A Few Key Facts about Dunaleila Salina
Highly purified extract from the powerful microalgae
Protects mitochondria against oxidative stress and
activates them with a nutrient cocktail of amino acids,
minerals, & carbohydrates
Significantly increases ATP production in mitochondria
by up to 40%
9 out of 10 users showed an improvement in skin
luminosity in dermatological tests
4- to 5-day acceleration of epithelial renewal due to
improved cell turnover – for fresh looking skin
80% of users showed a visible improvement in skin
brightness in dermatological tests
Excellent acceptance among users, with a significant
improvement in skin complexion
Skin energizing formulations to visibly improve skin luminosity
Perfect radiance enhancer
Protective day care for fresher and radiant looking skin
A great question / comment I’ve gotten on FB about algae:
Our algae is a highly purified fresh water blue algae extract of Dunaleila Salina with a very tiny molecular structure that is ‘water-like and would not be pore clogging at all. With its tiny molecular structure, it is easily absorbed into the skin.
When seaweed and algae are comedogenic it’s primarily when someone has an “iodine allergy” that a problem occurs. If someone has an iodine allergy (unbeknownst to them) and they use products containing seaweed/algae it can cause significant breakouts with pustules, inflammation and deep cyst like lesions at times.
This is why they say if someone has acne to stay away from seaweeds and algae’s. It’s cautionary, not because it will make it worse but if they are “allergic” to iodine (which is high in seaweed and algae) it would definitely make it worse.
The solution is we as Estheticians need to always present the question on our ‘intake form’, “Are you allergic to iodine?”
I hope this helps your understanding of why Aliven Gele’ is more than “just” a micro current gele’.

Purchase Your Toothpaste From Your Local Health Food Store
I like using Neem Toothpaste with Cinnamon. Brush your teeth, cheeks and tongue or use a tongue scraper for your tongue to remove odor causing bacteria. Swish Coconut Oil in your mouth for no less than one minute and on up to 20 minutes, careful not to swallow. Spit out when finished. Then enjoy a mug of warm lemon juice water.
To make: Warm up 8 oz water and squeeze 1/2 to one fresh organic lemon into mug and enjoy !
This mixture stimulates peristalsis, if you know what I mean, jelly bean.
WaLa…. You’ll be kissable and feeling lighter just like that !
Go play and have a great day 🙂

“Creating lusciously plump, moist skin with a youthful quality”
A benefit of having Sodium Hyaluronate in Aliven Gele’
~Skin Caring Shari
Brilliantly formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate, creating the luxurious consistency of warm honey
Aliven Gele’ is not a gel, but, rather, a gele’. Most gels are created with carbomer, a cross linked plastic. We wanted to stay away from this ingredient, keeping Aliven naturally clean and nourishing for you and your clients skin.
What is Sodium Hyaluronate?
According to WikipediA, Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, a glycosaminoglycan found in various connective, epithelial and neural tissues.
Benefits of Sodium Hyaluronate:
- Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size than HA.
- This makes it especially penetrative, capable of moving into the deeper layers of the skin
- Holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water ! Woot! Woot!
- Hydrating, making skin moist and supple
- Excellent conductor of electricity due to its water binding capabilities
- Naturally occurring inside our body and is responsible for the “plump” quality of youthful skin.
- Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes a slight plumping.
- This plumping helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving skin a more youthful appearance
- This subtle plumping increases volume, making younger looking skin
- The fact that hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the dermis of the skin makes it even more appealing as a skin care ingredient
- People are increasingly looking for products that contain natural ingredients that aren’t toxic and won’t harm or irritate skin.
- The Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database classifies it as an ingredient with a low potential for toxicity and gives it a high safety rating.
- Non-irritating to skin
- Does not leave a “greasy” feel to the skin.
More than just a micro current gel… A luxurious, nutritious, clean and healthy hydrating conducting micro current serum gele’. That’s a mouthful !
InJoy using Aliven Gele’ on you and your clients skin !
Spot Light on Neroli Hydrosol
Aliven Gele’, for use with Micro Current, LED, Ultra Sound and any other modality needing a conductive gel, has a lovely, aromatic base of Neroli Hyrdrosol.
What is a hydrosol? Why is Neroli important in Aliven Gele’? Let’s look at the attributes and benefits of Neroli Hyrdrosol.
Hydrosols are a byproduct of the steam distillation process during the creation of extracting essential oils. It is a homeopathic dose of the essential oil and used to balance, hydrate, calm and rejuvenate the skin and senses.
Hydrosols are delicate. Keep your gele’ tightly sealed and stored in a cool environment, protected from heat and light. This is why I suggest storing Aliven Gele’ in your refrigerator. Think of it as fresh produce.
Neroli Hydrosol is known to be excellent for normal, delicate, and oily skin and calming for sensitive skin types. It has a gentle astringent value benefiting acne and rosacea skin types as well. It benefits scars, stretch marks, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Upon your first inhalation of the heavenly aroma of Neroli, which is Orange Blossom distillate, you will experience a calming to your spirit. You and your clients will love this aromatherapy while performing your lovely micro current treatment!
Blessings to you and your clients,
~Skin Caring Shari
