I have been using an all natural Aloe Vera based skin care products for a little over a month now and have had great results. I use these products and mineral makeup. I have extremely oily skin and am very pleased with the results. Has anyone else used aloe skin care products?

I don't use products that are based on aloe vera. But I've been told that using a combination of aloe vera juice with other extracts can help deflate a pimple or calm irritated skin. It needs to be pure aloe vera juice (it is supposed to be clear, not green).

Natural Cosmetics
The recent flux of natural cosmetics options in health stores and over the Internet has led to an explosive marketing campaign pitting the traditional chemical based cosmetics against those that use more natural ingredients. What difference is there truly between mainstream brands and the new brand of organic and natural cosmetics?

Allergens
Many natural cosmetics brands claim that the major difference between their products and those of their main stream competitors is the presence of different allergens in the chemical based products. However, allergens are present in nearly all products. The difference is in how your body reacts to them.
The best way to be prepared for and combat the negative effects allergens can have on your body is by being tested by a doctor for any number of different possible allergies. There are 24 basic chemicals that all dermatology tests cover as well as a litany of further allergens and chemical compounds that might negatively affect your body.

The Basics of Natural Cosmetics
The main ingredients in all cosmetics that bind water to skin are known as humectants. These ingredients can be found in a wide range of cosmetic products, regardless of cost or source. Common sources include glycerin, mannitol, and sorbitol just as examples.
Each source offers a slightly different result though, meaning women should adjust which products they use in different times of the year. Natural cosmetics generally offer a more organic source for the various humectants needed for successful products.
The best way to ensure that the ingredients in a natural cosmetics product are actually natural is to look at the ingredient listing and check from the top down to see which ingredients are most prominent. If the natural ingredients are not listed at the top, they are not as prominent in the cosmetics.

Homemade Natural Cosmetics and the Difference Natural Makes
The best way to know that natural cosmetics and skin care regiments are actually natural is to create them yourself. There are hundreds of homemade recipes that allow you to do just this, from combining oatmeal and powdered milk to use as an exfoliate in the shower to using lemon juice to remove aging spots.
The main difference that appears for women who use natural cosmetics at a certain point is that they start to notice the glow and color returning to their otherwise dry and cracked skin. An artificial product will not only wear out normally healthy skin, it will create long lasting damage. Natural cosmetics, regardless of their effectiveness will return much of the natural sheen to your skin.
There is a substantial switch between artificial and natural cosmetics though that is very similar to the one in food. Your body will need two or three weeks to adjust to the change altering your skin along the way. To keep from experiencing this more than once, make the switch to natural cosmetics all at once instead of slowly over a period of time.

There's a popular like here in QC called Aloette. I'd tried some years ago & it wasn't bad.
