Changing the Face of Skin Care™
Time takes its toll on skin. But the combined impact of heightened levels of s ultraviolet light and industrial pollutants can trigger multiple free radical reactions capable of visibly aging your skin much faster than Nature ever intended. The result is accelerated aging.
For generations, Shaklee has led the scientific world in nutrition. Today, researchers agree that the same nutrients which protect your health also play a significant role in the appearance of your skin.
Now Shaklee’s unparalleled expertise has been applied to skin care. Extensive clinical tests have demonstrated conclusively that the Enfuselle skin care system offers complete protection against the visible effects of both time and the environment. Prove it to yourself, as Enfuselle helps your skin recapture the firm and glowing, unlined and unworried look of youth.
The same nutrients that help keep you healthy on the inside also play a huge role in how you look on the outside. So it only makes sense that your skin care comes from a company that knows about nutrition, inside and out.
Normal Function of Healthy, Young Skin
Skin is the body’s largest and most vulnerable organ. Quite literally, it is the dividing line between you and the outside world. Your skin is the body’s primary line of defense against external injury, ultraviolet light, microorganisms, and environmental pollutants. Your skin also helps regulate body temperature and moisture loss.
In fact, skin is about 20% water. This moisture is critical to healthy skin. It helps keep surface cells supple, plump, firm, and youthful looking. The ability of skin cells to properly regulate the loss of moisture from the skin is a key indicator of skin health. Another essential for optimum skin health and youthful appearance is sebum — the blend of natural oils produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands.
When natural skin moisture and sebum production are in healthy balance, a hydrolipid (water- and-oil) film is formed over the skin’s surface, helping to keep skin soft, smooth, and supple. This oil/moisture balance also maintains a slightly acidic pH, which helps discourage harmful bacterial growth.
The continuous shedding of the surface skin layer is the end result of healthy skin growth. As millions of new skin cells push up from the base of the epidermis every day, the outermost cells flake off. This continuous process of renewal is crucial to maintaining the skin’s protective barrier function. Exfoliation — which assists this natural shedding process — can also help keep skin healthier by reducing the amount of time skin cells damaged by ultraviolet light or free radicals linger on the skin’s surface.
When youthful skin is functioning at its best, healthy skin cells are created in the basal layer and rise through the epidermis to the surface (strateum corneum) rapidly — there’s a complete turnover about every 28 days. A cushion of fat above the facial muscles pads the bony structure of the face to create rounded contours, while collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin provide firmness and resilience.
When we’re young, our skin has the ability to resist and repair most of the damage caused by sun exposure and free radicals that attack skin cells and alter cells’ genetic material. But this damage is cumulative, and even in our 20s, our skin begins to show the signs of “battle fatigue.”
I personally have used this system for over year now! My sun spots faded (I used R&F to get rid of them for good, they were STUBBORN but now that they’re mostly gone, I’m back to using Enfuselle along with R&F microdermabrasion paste. Message me if you’d like info about R&F, I have a friend who is a distributor for them.). My skin is more firm and the wrinkles around my eyes have gone away.
That’s my sweet friend Jess. She called me after having a HORRIBLE time with winter skin, after only 2 weeks she was shocked and sent me her photos. So glad that Shaklee could help her skin heal and look amazing!
Check back in tomorrow for Part 2 of the Vitamins for your Skin Series!
Pt. 2: Challenges to Skin’s Health & Appearance and Accelerated Aging: “Our skin ages in two ways: through the accumulated physical changes normally associated with the passage of time (chronological aging), and through the accumulated damage caused by exposure to environmental pollutants and UV radiation (accelerated aging)”
Pt. 3: Optimizing Skin’s Health & Appearance: “Skin care research suggests that even how our skin behaves — acting more oily or more dry, for example — may stem more from what we’re DOING to our skin than from its internal programming.”
Pt 4: How does the Enfuselle Skin Care System Work? & Ingredients You Won’t Find in Enfuselle Products: “Many skin care products on the market today claim to nourish and protect the skin with one or more antioxidant nutrients. Unfortunately, these ingredients only address certain parts of the complex equation of free radical damage on the surface of the skin. What’s more, these ingredients may be present at very low levels or in forms which may not be absorbed and utilized by your skin.”
