What is Candida?
According to Dr Ben Johnson of Osmosis Skin Care: “Candida is part of a healthy bacterial population in the gut that overgrows and therefore becomes a source of toxin production. There are 56 strains and this means it could result in 56 different versions of disease. Some have multiple overgrown strains. Antibiotics, hormones (including pregnancy) and sugar promote it”.
What Skin Conditions Does Candida Create?
Forehead Acne: Small bumps or cysts caused by candida overgrowth in the gut. This will often be accompanied by acne on cheeks and temples.
Rosacea & Acne Rosacea on Lower/Middle Cheek Bone: Redness and/or acne in this region is from bacterial or candida overgrowth, ulcers, and digestive issues in the small intestines.
Rosacea on Lateral to Nose area: Redness next to the nose is caused by gastritis or H. Pylori overgrowth in the stomach.
Acne on Lower Cheeks/Jawline: Bumps or cysts caused by estrogenic toxins and testosterone imbalance. Commonly affecting the mid-face, neck, chest, and back.
Eczema: Eczema is the result of digestive tract inflammation often caused by candida. Infants/toddlers have it passed on to them by mom, others develop it from diet or antibiotic use.
Psoriasis: Also the result of digestive tract inflammation often caused by candida AND is emotionally driven. Two Harmonized Waters are needed for this condition.

Who Wants Healthy Glowing skin ???
I Do! You Do ! We do !
Eat your Veggies! Why? Because the the pigment in the vegetables you consume will naturally add color and vibrancy to your complexion.
Dr Mercola says it right here:
“Courtesy of their higher water and phytochemical content, vegetables help produce that healthy “glow.”
“A study 3 from St. Andrews University concluded that people who ate three additional daily portions of produce for six weeks were ranked as better looking than those with lower intakes.”
“The cause for this improvement? The carotenoids pigments that give vegetables their red and orange colors also improve the color of your skin, rendering it more rosy and glowing.
Many vegetables are also known for their anti-aging benefits, helping firm your skin and combat wrinkles.”
Food really is important for healthy skin… Our skin reflects the health of our internal state.
Treat your skin kindly by eating a variety of rainbow colored veggies, & drinking clean water. Try adding a sprig of your favorite herb to your water for a refreshing and lovely drinking experience. My favorite is Cucumber Dill Water…. Cheers!

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 !

P.S. Please share this with your Esty friends who would benefit from Aliven Gele’. I sincerely thank you for helping share the good news!
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’.

“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.

Summer Sun Protection Tips
by Dr Ben Johnson
Osmosis Skin Care
Summer Sun Protection with Dr Ben Johnson
UV Neutralizer for this Summer
UV Neutralizer is equivalent to SPF 30+ and is the best sun protection available where the UV Index is 9.0 or less. Secondary protection is advised in tropical regions except during Winter months when the UV Index is lower. As with any sun protection, the UV Index peaks at noon so with intense sun exposure between 11-1PM, you may consider additional sun protection, especially the nose, forehead and shoulders. UV Neutralizer is still advised as a secondary form of sun protection in all cases because of its total-body coverage and its ability to increase a healthy, protective tan at all times.
FURTHER INFORMATION ON SUN PROTECTION
FROM DR. BEN JOHNSON
With all forms of sun protection, poor diet and significant alcohol consumption will reduce your tolerance to the sun as they reduce your immune strength and thus UV damage repair-ability. Body parts that are in direct line with the sun are more susceptible to burning because the sun cannot be reflected by the skin and therefore the sun damage is much more intense. Sun exposure in mild and moderate regions or seasons (specifically with a UV Index of 9 or less) will be best protected by scalar wave technology.
The advantage of using scalar wave technology as sun protection IE: Drinking your sunscreen…..
Any form of sun protection is better than getting a sunburn. However, using sun protection daily when you are not in the sun for more than 10 minutes at a time is not ideal because the sun has many proven health benefits and the skin is designed to tolerate sun exposure quite well in limited doses. This is assuming your immune system, which repairs sun damage, is not compromised by an illness or medication. In that case, less sun exposure throughout the day is preferred with the possible addition of zinc/titanium topical sunblocks if the immune system is severely compromised.
With profuse perspiration and elevated heart rate for 30 minutes, the protection will stop and require you to wait another hour after taking another dose.
Sun exposure in more intense regions or seasons (specifically a UV Index of 9.1 or greater) should use additional protection in the form of topical sunscreens, preferably Zinc and/or Titanium.
I hope you gained some valuable insight into a great alternative to slathering chemicals all over your precious skin.
Skin Caring Services carries UV Neutralize Water and SHADE an SPF 30 sunscreen lotion.
