YOUTH Skin Care – Revolutionary

Have you ever wondered how safe the products are that you put on your skin?  Do all of those “anti-aging” products actually work? Is purity and science behind the products you use important?

YOUTH Skin Care was researched for 8 years in order to bring us products that not only work but also don’t have over 2500 of those ingredients that are shown not to be safe.

Here is some Q&A that helps us understand the “Why?” we might want to change brands and have fabulous results!  I will be doing several blogs with answers to different questions we all have. First let’s start with:

Q: How is this YOUTH skin care line different from others in the market?

Are you part of a growing trend to seek more natural beauty products?
The challenge to meet that consumer need is that a product claim to be all natural may be valid  but they often don’t really deliver products that truly work. The flip side of that is many companies deliver products that work but they are nowhere near natural and they rely on many questionable chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.

So you have this mutually exclusive space in the market today where you’re either free of potentially harmful chemicals or you deliver high performance.

Enter YOUTH!

We’ve found that sweet spot where we’ve bridged the gap. With YOUTH, we have products that we’ve clinically demonstrated deliver amazing results without 2500 ingredients that are potentially harmful.

When you look at our claims versus other companies’ out there today, YOUTH truly delivers benefits above and beyond what the competitors are even claiming. But we didn’t have to rely on potentially harmful chemicals to deliver on that efficacy.

Could You Erase a Decade from Your Skin?

I am so excited to present this amazing line of skin care!  Who wants all of those unsafe ingredients on their skin?   Check out the comprehensive FREE OF list below!

Clinical results without compromise.

With new YOUTH skin care, Shaklee has proven you don’t have to sacrifice safety and purity for efficacy. All YOUTH products are designed without the harmful chemicals and questionable ingredients found in so many other products. YOUTH products are all 100% vegan, cruelty free and gluten free. Our comprehensive “Free of” list contains over 2,500 harmful chemicals and questionable ingredients that you will never find in any of our YOUTH products.

Check out our Clinical Results. 100% of women were clinically proven to have younger-looking skin and 2/3 actually shifted their skin age into a younger decade.

True or False- Day 5 – Are you a Workaholic?

Day 5

Attention workaholics: How many hours can you clock each week before your heart pays a price?
A. 45___
B. 50___
C. 55___
D. 60___

Answer: A. When researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Centers and the University of St Thomas in Houston analyzed data on more than 1,900 people, they found that among people who worked 45 hours per week for a decade or more, each additional hour meant greater risk of heart disease. Risk climbed 16 percent when people put in 55 hours and 35 percent for 60 hours.

WOW!  This should be a wakeup call!  Americans are hardworking and often put in way more than the 45 hours noted here.  One tip to help on those longer days – get up every hour and take 3 deep breaths and walk around your office, in the corridor or outside for at least a couple of minutes.  You will feel refreshed and able to concentrate better for the next hour.

Give you heart a rest – it deserves it!!

Want some great nutritional tips for a Healthy Heart?  Message me back!  My goal is to live to over 100, still making plans, have great energy and have all my marbles to know what I am doing!  I can only do that making good choices.  How about you????

True or False – Day 3 – Heart Health

Day 3

“Women need to start worrying about heart disease after they hit menopause”.

Answer: False
It’s believed that the drop in estrogen that accompanies menopause may make your blood vessels less elastic, increasing the strain on your heart.  However, when researchers followed nearly 1,500 women over nine years, they found that in the years leading up to menopause, there was an increase in the severity of metabolic syndrome…a group of risk factors, including high fasting blood sugar and high blood pressure, associated with heart disease. This effect was even more pronounced in black women.

True or False – Day 2

Day 2

Which of these is not a risk factor for heart disease?
A. High blood pressure ___
B. Obesity___
C. Migraines ____
D. Smoking ____
E. Diabetes_____

Answer: Trick question…they all might be. You can probably rattle off most risk factors by…well, heart, with the possible exception of migraines.  But a Harvard study of more than 100,000 women recently found that migraine sufferers were 50 percent likelier to have a heart attack, a stroke, or fatal heart disease, regardless of other risk factors, Genetics, hormones and inflammation are all possible culprits, but “the short answer is that we do not yet know what precise mechanism causes this,” says lead researcher Tobias Kurth, MD, adjunct professor at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

 

 

 

 

Aging & The Throwaway Culture Continued

Let’s hear it for our fabulous over 60 crowd!!

The question is, how do we all come out of the closet and say to the many who have ignored us, “I am here! I have valuable information to share, ideas & perspectives that might change the directions our society is taking”?  Aging is magnificent – let’s live it to the fullest.

Families, now further apart, often look at their parents as obsolete or having suddenly gone “stupid” with minimal value to offer. While they have no patience for us, perhaps we can teach them that patience is a virtue that took us years to acquire.

Usually, grandparents are more revered by their grandchildren because they give them individual attention and show more patience. Our children may still be stuck in remembering our foibles when we were 20-30 years younger. Perhaps we elders have learned from our experiences and can now offer some valuable viewpoints, but we may never be given the chance.

We have so much more to give and share, as well as, receive. Let’s stand up for our “Throwaways” and re-purpose ourselves into mentors for the future, contributing to greater, more engaged communities and families.

Some ideas you might consider to keep us from falling into the stereotype of “old people”:

  1.  Get healthy so you can be able to participate in many life activities.
  2.  Determine what you are passionate about and decide how to get involved if you aren’t already.
  3.  Get active (or “just Do It” as they say at Nike)
  4.  See where you can give back – mentoring, charitable work, political activism – volunteering to be a reader at an elementary school or tutoring at middle or high school could be an idea.
  5. Write your memoirs
  6.  Learn or relearn a skill you like that you can share with a grandchild or do for yourself.
  7. Set up special time with family members – expressing gratitude, helping with grandchildren, meeting one on one with family members to build or rebuild relationships.
  8. Take interesting classes at local community colleges

For those of you younger, how about giving us more than a “moment of your time” or a brief text. You will one day be an “elder” too, and have much to offer those younger. Don’t wait until then to realize what you have missed along the way.

I present this as food for thought, with the request of all who read this to share ideas on how to create a more inclusive community of all ages with the concept of collaboration and cooperation where we all learn from each other.

Don’t believe media nonsense – we seniors have value, lots of energy and vitality left, and the wisdom and experience to make the world a better place!!
