THE BEST TYPE of MASK!

Using a high-quality, chemical free and natural facial mask regularly can leave you with brighter, healthier looking skin, by helping remove the debris from the pores and the hair follicles. Face Masks have been part of beauty regimen of women since ancient times. Natural products were used to keep the skin supple and smooth. They are ideal when your skin is wan and lacklustre.

Of course, not all the masts are same, and to get the maximum benefits it’s extremely important to use a mask that is rich in minerals and really capable of cleansing the skin deeply.Forever Marine Mask provides deep cleansing while balancing the skin’s texture with natural sea minerals such as sea kelp and algae, plus the super moisturizing and conditioning properties of Aloe Vera, honey and cucumber extract.

The synergistic blend of these deep sea minerals help the skin get complete nutrients, and the penetrative properties of Aloe Vera ensures that the nutrients reach to deepest layer of the skin to provide nutrition and moisturization.

Aloe Vera: As is true with all our skin care products, Aloe Vera is the principle ingredient in Forever Marine Mask, thereby not only providing skin with all the vital nutrients, but also helping in the penetration of nutrients from all the other ingredients.

Sea Kelp: Sea Kelp is among the oldest surviving species on planet Earth. Deep sea kelp has excellent nutritional qualities. It thrives in a mineral rich environment and absorbs an impressive array of these nutrients, including calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, iodine and zinc. Kelp also contains alkali thereby balancing out the acidic effects of environmental exposure to maintain the proper pH balance of the skin. It is known to nourish, oxygenate and detoxify the skin.

The exfoliating properties of Kelp make it a great addition to a facial mask. It increases blood circulation and stimulates lymph production to eliminate toxins.

Algae: Algae grows in the most natural way possible. There is no genetic manipulation, fertilizer or pesticides, just the sea, light and the tides. Also, algae’s lack of roots necessitates the absorption of nutritive substances from the sea water itself.

Some Benefits of Algae on the skin:

  1. Encourages vascular constriction to calm flushed and irritated skin.
  2. Stimulates blood circulation.
  3. Oxygenates the skin to facilitate toxic elimination.
  4. Provides a tightening effect.
  5. Rejuvenates and energizes the skin cells.

Honey: It’s one of nature’s best gifts to rejuvenate and moisturize the skin for a smooth glow. Honey’s ability to absorb and retain moisture helps keep skin hydrated and fresh and prevents drying. It’s a very effective for minor acne treatment. Honey absorbs impurities from the pores on the skin, making it an ideal cleansing agent. It helps to rejuvenate skin and provides glow and softness to skin.

Rosemary Extract: Rosemary is a well known culinary herb. Applied to the skin, rosemary essential oil helps strengthen the capillaries and has a rejuvenating effect. It has excellent toning and binding effects on loose, sagging skin, while at the same time increasing blood flow, thereby promoting proper skin function. The diuretic attributes help to reduce puffiness and swelling, resulting in firmer skin and better skin tone. It is known to promote a healthy looking complexion.

Cucumber Extract: Since cucumber has 90% water, it is known to be a cooling agent. As cucumber and the human skin share the same level of hydrogen, it becomes easier for cucumber to mask all the problem areas. The cleansing and cleansing properly makes your skin soft and supple. The juice from cucumber has both strong moisturizing abilities as well as mild astringent effects. Cucumber extract is soothing and helps relieve the puffiness of the skin. It also helps remove dead skin cells and tightens skin.

Forever Aloe Vera for Acne Treatment

Acne is a common skin disease especially in teenagers. However, adult acne is not rare either. Acne usually shows when the nature of the skin is changed either because of bacterial colonization of the skin surface or androgen-induced changes in the sebaceous follicles.

The first signs of acne are the lesions. In mild to moderate acne, seborrhea, comedones, papules and pustules are the first to appear. These are also commonly known as red, scaly skin, whiteheads, blackheads, pinheads and pimples.

In severe cases of acne, the papules could become bigger and form nodules. In addition, inflamed bumps on the skin may turn into acne cysts. When nodules and cysts are aggravated they may cause acne scars.

Acne starts in most people as soon as puberty. Ideally, it should have cleared away or reduced tremendously by age 25 when the oily teenage skin is replaced by the dry adult skin.

However, the hormonal imbalance and bacterial cause of acne may extend the skin condition well into middle age

Causes of Acne

In young people, especially in their teens, the level of production of male sex hormones or androgens is increased. These excess androgens can change the nature of the skin leading to increased sebum production and hyperkeratinization.

Examples of androgens which can cause this change are testosterone and its metabolites such as dihydrotestosterone or DHT.  When acne breaks out during pregnancy, menstrual cycles or menopause, it is usually because of hormonal imbalances.

For example, during menopause, the production of estradiol may fall. This female sex hormone is a natural anti-acne compound, and when it is no longer produced, androgens will dominate.

Other causes of hormonal imbalance which can lead to acne include birth control pills especially ones which do not contain estrogen; certain diseases such as Cushing’s syndrome and polycystic ovarian syndrome; and some forms of hormone replacement therapy.

For the bacterial cause of acne, two bacteria are implicated. These are Propionibacterium acnes and Staphylococcus epidermis.

While there are beneficial strains of P. acnes living on the surface of healthy skin, harmful strains of the bacterium can change the nature of the skin enough to cause acne especially when S. epidermis is also present.

There are different medications that can be used to treat acne. Some of them kill off the acne-causing bacteria, some correct hormonal imbalance and others keep the skin pores unclogged while clearing acne lesions.

Herbal extracts can treat acne by any combination of these three mechanisms. They share the distinct advantage of having very few side effects if any. They are also affordable and backed by years of use in traditional medicine in different cultures.

Aloe is an excellent example of such herbal extract. After centuries of use as a herbal remedy, it continues to be used for treating skin diseases even today.

How Aloe Vera Works For Acne

Aloe vera is widely used in the cosmetic industry for its soothing, moisturizing and nourishing effects on the skin.

Its bactericidal activity makes it useful for healing wounds and for treating skin infections such as psoriasis and acne.  In acne treatment, the bactericidal activity of aloe vera is effective against both P. acnes and S. epidermis.

Aloe vera extracts have also been shown to have antifungal properties. Apart from skin infections, aloe vera can be used to treat inflammatory bodies on the skin such as boils and cysts.

Aloe vera can penetrate deep into the skin to kill off bacteria hiding in clogged skin pores. It can also form a protective layer over the skin in order to speed up the healing of acne lesions and the fading of acne scars.

This herbal extract can also reduce the size of inflamed nodules and cysts and help relieve pain caused by the swelling. Aloe vera also promotes the regeneration of skin cells and tissues.

Using Aloe Vera to Treat Acne

There are many acne products containing aloe vera. They are usually sold as topical preparations. Some of these also have other active ingredients besides aloes.

To get the most benefits from treating acne with FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS‘ aloe vera skincare product, you should use it constantly. The usual routine for aloe vera acne product is to apply it in the morning and in the evening.

You should try and combine different aloe-containing acne skin product types. You can establish a skincare routine with aloe vera gelly, Aloe lotion or cream, Avocado soap (with Aloe in it) and ALOE Marine mask.

For example, you may apply aloe vera gel in the morning on the area of the skin affected by the acne. Gently massage the gel into the skin and leave it on. Aloe vera soap can be used as a facial cleanser. Wash the area covered by the acne with such soap at least twice daily. For those with oily skins, more frequent washes may be required.

To moisturize your skin while maintaining the anti-acne cover, use an aloe vera lotion or cream. This will provide an all-day protective layer that reduces the breakout of new acne lesions. By night, you can apply an aloe vera mask before going to bed, and wash it off in the morning.

Aloe vera products may cause a tingling sensation or itching on sensitive skins. A very few people also are allergic to aloe. For most people though, aloe is safe to use and produces no side effects.

Aloe Vera as a Home Remedy

While you can buy aloe vera products from your local drug store, you can also make your own aloe preparations at home.

To do this, first you need to remove a whole leaf from the aloe plant. An outer leaf should be chosen and then cut off as close to the trunk of the plant as possible.

Make a slit down the middle of the leaf to release the yellow exudate which is the latex. Allow all of the exudate to drain to prevent it from contaminating the gel that will come out later. This latex is responsible for the irritation and inflammation sometimes reported for topical applications of aloe.

There is no need to drain the leaves of Aloe arborescens since it contains very little of the latex.

With a serrated knife, cut off the jagged edges of the leaf then remove its thick skin. After this, scrape off any latex left from the gel core of the leaf.

Remove a piece of the gel and apply directly to the part of the skin affected by acne. Avoid contact with the eyes. Store the rest of the gel in an airtight container in the refrigerator where it can keep for a week.
