Last weekend Team RLEI hosted its August Facebook Party. Here’s a recap of the information shared…
Welcome! Tonight I’m going to quickly share 10 tips about a healthier beauty routine from the inside out for skin, hair, and nails. The aging you see in your skin is biological, not chronological, and can be delayed or even reversed with a holistic, natural approach that includes optimal diet, lifestyle, and product choices.
Here’s a fact to mull over before we begin…our skin absorbs about 60% of whatever we put on it and the average woman wears 515 chemicals a day. Uh-oh!
On that note, I might just treat myself to a glass of champagne and a piece of dark chocolate and put myself in an escaping, spa frame of mind…
TIP #1. Cleanse your skin morning and night with a gentle, soap-free cleanser. Do not scrub! Scrubbing actually breaks capillaries and damages cell tissue, which encourages invasive bacteria. Use a wad of cotton or your fingertips. Rinse thoroughly with clean, tepid water and dry gently.
Try Shaklee’s Enfuselle “Gentle Cleansing Bar”. Drying soaps can strip away your natural beauty. Designed for sensitive skin, this pH-balanced, hypoallergenic bar is specially formulated to nurture skin as it removes dirt, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants without stripping away your natural emollients.
“Purifying Cleansing Gel” gently foams away makeup and excess oil. And “Hydrating Cleansing Lotion” gently cleanses without drying. The result is smooth, balanced, glowing skin with a brighter tone.
TIP #2. Toners are most helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin, or for people who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other heavy skin products such as sun screen.
“Purifying Toner” cleanses, invigorates, and refines with licorice, ginseng, and witch hazel extracts. At the same time, it minimizes the appearance of pores and eliminates excess oil. “Hydrating Toner” has an alcohol-free formula that evaporates quickly without drying skin. Witch hazel and chamomile extracts protect natural oils, clarify, and leave skin soft and smooth.
TIP #3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize from head to toes. (You help plump and moisturize skin from the inside out by drinking adequate amounts of water daily.)
From a topical point of view…even oily skin gets thirsty – give it the drink it deserves with “Balancing Moisturizer”, clinically proven to provide an immediate moisture surge that hydrates up to 24 hours. Its lightweight, non-sticky formula doesn’t add oil, yet it deeply nurtures and hydrates skin, rebalancing it so it feels smooth, firm, and fresh with a long-lasting matte finish.
Combining advanced technology, exclusive botanical humectants, and intensive levels of Vital Repair+® Complex, “Hydrating Moisturizer” is an oil-free, emollient-rich hypo-allergenic cream. This fast-acting and long-lasting 24-hour moisturizer helps prevent dehydration-induced environmental damage.
Nourish your skin with the lightweight, non-greasy yet intensely moisturizing “Hand & Body Lotion”. Clinically proven to provide an instant moisture surge and continued release for up to six hours. It helps reverse UV-induced signs of aging, while pro-vitamin B5 strengthens nails. Added bonus: a botanical prebiotic that creates a healthy environment on the skin to strengthen its natural protective system.
TIP #4. Get shower savvy with an exfoliator and gel, inspired by the sea.
Shaklee’s “Refining Polisher” is a hypoallergenic exfoliator and moisturizer that stimulates, clarifies, and softens skin. In the shower, its natural humectants pull moisture from the steam into your skin, instantly reviving its dull, tired appearance and feel. Gentle enough for everyday use – even for sensitive skin.
The patented, corn- and coconut-derived “Moisturizing Shower Gel” gently cleanses, soothes, and invigorates. It rejuvenates with essential sea minerals and hydrates with sea-botanical extracts.
TIP #5. Facial masks draw out toxins from deep inside and they help to rebalance and soothe your skin. Plus even if it only takes 5 minutes once or twice a week, doing a mask is taking some time off for yourself, away from the stress and worries of your life. You need this time off!
Shaklee’s “Infusing Mineral Masque” is a purified, hypoallergenic clay formula that unclogs pores and lifts away impurities, leaving a luminous complexion that looks dramatically smoother, conditioned, and refreshed.
TIP #6. Be extra careful with the areas around the eyes!
Daily removal of eye makeup can pull, irritate, and damage the delicate skin around the eye. Shaklee’s “Eye Makeup Remover” is an oil-free formula that dissolves stubborn eye makeup, gently and thoroughly, so there’s no need to pull or irritate eye skin. In fact, it comforts the area with beta glucan, encouraging a smooth, firm appearance. Ophthalmologist tested, its pH-balanced, non-irritating formula is safe for contact lens wearers.
Eyes are often our most expressive feature. Unfortunately, their fine lines and wrinkles can express our age as well. This hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist-tested formula contains anti-aging botanicals and vitamin C, so fine lines and wrinkles seem to disappear – Shaklee’s “Eye Treatment”. Pat lightly around the area.
TIP #7. Repair damaged skin with an organic, anti-inflammatory diet, exercise, and beauty sleep. When you exercise, you increase your cellular metabolism and respiration and also boost your blood and lymph circulation, which are fundamental to enhance oxygen and nutrients availability and waste disposal from your tissues and organs. This in turn does more for your skin than a day in a spa!
You can also increase your skin’s healing abilities day and night. Shaklee’s “Time Repair A.M. SPF 15” is an exclusive daytime formula that deeply moisturizes, nourishes and protects skin throughout the day. It renews, brightens and evens skin tone and encourages natural cell turnover. The exclusive triple-patented Vital Repair+® Complex fights free radical damage and includes the following ingredients: vitamins E, C and A, panthenol, grape seed extract, superoxide dismutase and beta-glucan. It also contains a unique botanical ingredient that works like an alphahydroxy acid (AHA), but without the irritation. This hypoallergenic formula includes a nonirritating broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen.
The “C+E Repair P.M.” is a patented skin-activated formula that contains high levels of bio-pure vitamins C (10%) and E (5%) to instantly soften the skin and reverse the visible signs of aging while you sleep. With continued use, skin appears transformed as it recaptures youthful firmness and luminosity. Exclusive non-irritating formula and paraben free.
- 223% decrease in appearance of skin wrinkles in two weeks.
- 120% increase in skin resilience and firmness in two week.
- 209% decrease in skin’s visible fine lines in eight weeks.
- 32% increase in retained skin moisture in eight weeks.
- A definitive evening of skin tone in 12 weeks.
TIP #8. Don’t overcomplicate the basics with your hair – all you need still is shampoo, conditioner, and the occasional deep moisturizing treatment to combat styling damage.
Maintain your hair’s natural pH, oil and moisture balance, strength, shine, and resilience. Using nature-based protein and humectants, you can further strengthen it so it maintains its good health longer. Shaklee’s “ProSante Hair Care” system is enriched with panthenol (pro-vitamin B5) and wheat amino acids to moisturize hair thoroughly and rebuild the hair cuticle.
TIP #9. Going non-toxic with your nails is possible too. Conventional nail polish can be one of the most toxic beauty products around, as many contain a host of harmful chemicals. These chemicals are especially harmful to children and pregnant women. Nail polishes often include:
- Toulene– A chemical known to cause reproductive harm and dizziness. It is also found in gasoline andthe CDC warns that it can cause central nervous system problems.
- Formaldehyde– Thisknown carcinogen is found in many nail polishes. It is also used to preserve dead things and when used in lab preparations, there are strict warnings to avoid inhalation or skin contact.
- Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)-This chemical is banned in Europe and is known to cause reproductive problems, especially in boys. The Environmental working group classifies this chemical as the highest danger level and warns that it can cause organ problems and endocrine disruption.
- Assorted other chemicals.
Nail polish removers are equally problematic and the fumes are especially harmful.

TIP #10. You don’t need Botox, really.
Shaklee’s “Instant Firming Serum” is a toxin-free, pain-free, and worry-free approach to visibly improving your skin’s quality and appearance. With continued daily use, the peptides in this scientifically advanced formula help give you younger-looking skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck without freezing or altering normal facial expressions.
Most importantly, when you look in the mirror, see beyond the minor imperfections and laugh lines to the glowing spirit that lies within. Honor yourself and the skin you were born in by taking the best care of yourself that you can, naturally.
