How To~Instructions

You might be wondering why I’m writing a post about how to use my lotion.  It’s because my lotion is different from any other out there.  You are not going to find anything like it anywhere else.  Not just the extracted ingredients, but also the consistency of it.

The consistency of my miracle whipped lotion is literally like country crock butter.  It also melts as soon as you touch it.  It should always be stored at room temperature, but if found in a hot place, put in the fridge for a few minutes to cool it off and stir it.  I use absolutely no preservatives to keep the lotion in solid form instead of melting.  The beeswax helps with this but the 3 base ingredients are all solid at room temperature.

Apply a very very very very thin layer onto your skin using circular massing movements.  Concentrate around your eyes, nose and mouth.  Really hit the areas that carry laugh lines.  Also if you skin has any sort of condition such as eczema or rosacea remember to massage very thoroughly in those areas.  This is because the massaging motion brings in more circulation improving and decreasing inflammation….

 Once you’ve massaged the lotion in, if you’ve used to much just take a towel and dab your face.  Your face should feel soft and smooth.  It should not feel dry.  It is going to take a few applications to get use to this feeling.  You see most lotions contain a lot of water products that don’t allow the oils to seep into the skin, nor do they have a high concentration of oils to begin with!  My product however, contains oil that are anti-inflammatory by nature.  These oils are also non-cosmogenic, meaning they don’t clog pores.  So even if your face feels a little oily the products I make will not cause blackheads, white-heads, or those nasty underground pimples as I call them.  Instead it will actually heal your skin.

Here are the steps to a healthy skin:

Step 1:

Exfoliate your skin ~ I recommend using a scrub such as my sugar cane scrub or my salt scrub.  These scrubs provide additional oil to soothe the skin during exfoliation but also contain anti-oxidants from rose water and pure aloe vera juice.  Exfoliation takes off all the dead skin and helps to remove the dirt from your pores.  All of this reduced the possibility of producing acne and/or reduced the current acne found on he face.

Step 2:

Clean your pores ~  You can do this a variety of ways.  I use a few products because I have not developed my own yet.  I use: Queen Helene mint clay mask, Noxzema, and Freeman cucumber facial peel off mask.

My favorite clay mask..has a soothing effect
My other favorite cleaner!
Facial Peel-Off Mask Cucumber…best thing ever

Step 3:

Toner ~ After cleansing your skin you need to use a toner…I prefer pure witch hazel..it’s a little stinky and sticky, but it works amazing.  If not neutrogena toner works just as well and may contain some salicylic acid to help with acne.

Step 4:

Hydration and Rejuvination ~  I suggest my Miracle Whip lotion…it contains 2% zinc oxide so it is safe during the day, but works as a cold cream at night.  Check out the link and look at the ingredients.  If you have any questions please let me know!

After allowing your skin to become radiantly hydrated, don’t forget you can put makeup on top of this.  I have never been a fan of liquid makeup and I myself do not use any makeup at least not foundation.  I prefer bare minerals if I’m going to use anything.

I’m not ashamed of any minor blemishes I have..that would be like me being ashamed of a scar.  I believe in letting your natural beauty shine through!  Let people see  you!

I hope you enjoy my products and if you have anything you want changed just let me know!  I can customize any product!

About ME~LenaJeanne!

HI Y’ALL,

My name is Alena Jeanne..I go by LenaJeanne..it’s what my momma calls me!  I’m from southern AR…born and raised country off of a dirt road for a long time..in a small quiet town called Glenwood.  I love it there!  That is where I learned how to make sweet tea and catch fireflies.  It’s where my best friend’s live and my wonderful family.  It’s where I found Jesus and learned to talk to God.  It’s home!  It taught me everything I needed to know about the world!

Then I moved away and went to college! lol  I received 2 bachelor’s in Molecular Biology/biotechnology and Environmental Science.  I worked for all 4 years in a viral research lab and loved it.  Then I did my master’s work in a botanical chemistry lab working with Green Tea and Tomato plants.  From there I have joined the Biochemistry Department at University of Kentucky and my current PhD work is in Pancreatic Cancer.  After my PhD in about a year or so I’m entering into medical school where I will eventually be a research clinician specializing in Pediatric Oncology diagnosis and research primarily focusing on new treatment modalities……..that is the goal at least!

However, quite a few years ago when I was in undergraduate I had my daughter at the tender age of 20 and my son 16 months later.  Both of my children are diagnosed with autism and suffer from a range of disorders from SHOX deficiency, Primary Ciliary Disorder, and auto immune disorders to Gastric disease, to asthma.  However, one common trend in all of us is that we are allergic to perfumes and many lotions.

I developed rosacea, eczema, and cosmetic acne (acne acquired from using cosmetic products).  I immediately stopped the cosmetics, but was left with little to no treatment.  This was during my time of my Master’s work.  I learned how to efficiently extract the anti-oxidant compounds from Green Tea…the catechins..most people have heard of EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate)and see it mentioned in all the ads.  It is the most abundant catechin as well as the most “potent”.  I started doing my own research into homemade lotion; however, i didn’t just want some refined lotion.  I wanted ALL natural lotion….well 5 years later and TONS of primary articles (research articles that are published in peer reviewed journals..meaning they do real science…and is accepted by the scientific community) I have started my own lotion line.  I’ve been perfecting my lotions for the past 3 years.  I can honestly say that they are amazing…it is the ONLY I use….all over my body.

I feel that I definitely DON’T look 33.  Even with all of the stress in my life I maintain a youthful glow.

I have specifically designed these products for my age group in mind at first; however, when I started receiving reports of the lotions reducing age spots (liver spots), fine lines and wrinkles, and increasing elasticity I started getting excited.  I have put years of work into these products.  Every product in here was chosen for a specific reason.

Please stay with me during this exciting time.  August of 2013 I should have all of my online work completed…my store completely filled…and all logo’s and labels designed.

Every single component of these lotions are completely 100% edible.  I believe that whatever you put ON your body should be so natural and organic you could even put it IN your body….but please don’t..it’s gross..and I just don’t think it would taste yummy!!!!!

The other belief I have is to keep my lines low cost and truthful to my beliefs.  I promise you I will ALWAYS listen to your feedback.  I also believe that by keeping it lower cost to you I can reduce the price you pay by offering you a deal.
