Any time I meet someone new and disclose my age that person is typically shocked. Maybe some people are trying to be polite and make me feel good, but the majority of the time I believe they are genuine. My age even seems to be a surprise among my closest friends. And if I’m being honest, sometimes I look in the mirror and forget how old I am. Is my birth certificate lying or have I found the secret to the fountain of youth?
It’s funny because for so many years of my youth I tried everything I could to look older and now I am trying everything I can to look younger. Even though I am an older mom, it helps having two tiny ones at home as they give the illusion that I am younger than if I had adolescents. Yet they don’t help the fact that I am up late each night working after they go to bed and then am up multiple times throughout the night nursing my infant and corralling my toddler back to her big girl bed instead of mine. The combination certainly doesn’t help my tired, darkened, swollen eyes. And did I mention the wrinkles and fine lines that have developed rapidly over the last couple of years? Life is filled with stressful moments and whether it’s environmental factors like the sun or finances, heath, or other life issues, we cannot escape the stress of everyday life and the wear and tear on our skin. As a therapist and a mom, I talk a lot about self-care and this is the first step to taking care of our bodies inside and out. And the younger you start taking care of your skin, the better benefits you will experience as you age each year. So what do we do?
About a year ago, I started using some magical anti-aging products. You may have heard of them or seen them before on The View and or in magazines like Cosmopolitan, Life&Style, Muscle & Fitness, BRIDES, GQ, Better Homes & Garden, or Essence, to name a few. Nerium is a natural skin care and wellness company that scientifically creates products that include exclusive patented ingredients, which have been studied in clinical trials and proven as a breakthrough in the anti-aging world. Research for safety and effectiveness have been done over the years by the world’s top universities, scientists, and labs. Not only do Nerium products fight signs of aging and the underlying causes, but acts as a powerful antioxidant that works to target free radical damage and boost the cell renewal process to reveal younger looking skin. Nerium is the fastest growing private company in the world and the fastest to hit 1 billion in sales beating Facebook, eBay and Google! And I know I am in good company among tens of thousands of other happy customers! And did you know that celebrities like Kate Hudson, Kelly Pickler, The Property Brothers, Sophia Vergara, Ken Hamlin from the NFL, Cary Deuber from Real Housewives, and Jesse and Ann Csincsak from The Bachelor also use Nerium products?
The products speak for themselves, but the company also offers a RISK FREE 30-day return policy for a full refund if you are unsatisfied with any of their products. Isn’t this amazing? I know you won’t want to return them once you use them, but it’s a fantastic policy nonetheless! So what do you have to lose? They also have a loyalty program called the preferred customer, which offers discounts on products and even FREE SHIPPING FOR LIFE (more discount details + link to buy below). And guests attending my So Cal Spring Social next month will be getting samples in their curated gift bags!!
But first, let’s talk about the products one by one. The first product I use everyday is the Nerium Night Cream, made up of ingredients like Vitamin E, quinoa, and aloe vera. This magical little gem is so quick to use it is perfect for moms! It’s not a long rigorous process, but something easy I can do right before bed. I quickly wash my face and before drying it when it is still a little wet, I use three pumps of the cream and thoroughly rub it into my face and neck. I will also use a tiny bit on my hands with what is leftover! I started seeing results after using this product for only a week. But you’d be amazed to what it did to my skin after 60 days! Like working out, the more consistent you are and the longer you do something, the better results you will have! In order to really see your results, make sure you take a before and after picture of your face from the first day you use it and then again after a month. The wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead diminished, my pores became smaller, my skin looked firmer and toner, and my face wasn’t blotchy anymore. The best part is that it got rid of the worry line that was right in the middle of my forehead right above my eyes from all the stress of being in school for so long and squinting in the sun. I know others have used it to also clear up acne (especially good for teenagers)!
A second product I use every morning is the Nerium Eye Serum. Mamas, this one is my favorite!! Whether I have time to shower in the morning or not, I squirt a tiny bit onto my finger and dab it along the bottom part of my skin under my eyes. It works within a few seconds and not only makes my under eye area super soft and smooth, it completely takes away any puffiness and dark circles I had. It immediately also reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. It brightens up my whole eye area and the longer I use it, the more benefits I see and feel because it matches my skin’s natural pH level. Any mom in any stage of her life could benefit from this, but especially new moms and moms of little ones since we lose out on so much sleep!
The third product I use is the Nerium Firming Body Contour Cream. Mamas, this one is for the books! I use mine in all those not so friendly places to help firm and tone and also reduce cellulite and dimples. It is made up of white willow bark, shea and cocoa butters, and forskohlii root, it not only smoothens and tightens my skin, it also hydrates it all day long! And after two c-sections, I even have used it on my tummy area to lesson stretch marks. It is perfect for my arms, legs, and other unmentionable area. And it’s the perfect time to try some, just in time for bathing suit season!!!
Another product I use is the Nerium Day Cream, which I use as a moisturizer every morning before applying my make-up. This product is made up of green tea, vitamin C and E, and hydrating jojoba esters. I love this product because it isn’t greasy or thick. It applies smoothly and leaves my skin feeling moisturized, soft, smooth, and firm. It also supports natural collagen production and guards my skin from oxidative stress caused by exposure to everyday environmental factors. Trust me, I have used a ton of different moisturizers over the years, and this one truly is my favorite not only for the consistency and the way it makes my skin feel but for all of the long lasting benefits too!
And Nerium just came out with a health and wellness product this month called Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex and Superfood & Antioxidant Boost Powder. Each pack includes tons of antioxidants and 4 servings of Non-GMO fruits and veggies!! Mixing a pack of powder with some water will help balance pH levels to keep your body more alkalized and less acidic, defend against radical damage, increase the body’s ability to absorb ingredients in the supplement and in your food, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and reveal brighter looking skin! And this month you can buy 3 boxes for the price of 2 boxes!
Nerium also has Eye-V Moisture Boost Hydrogel eye patches! For only $40, each box contains 5 patches and are to be used once a week to give your under eye quick and hydrated hydration for puffy, stressed, or fatigued eyes. It’s like getting a refreshing “eye lift” every single week! It hydrates, firms, and brightens the skin and reduces puffiness and fine lines. They also have a product I have yet to try called EHT supplement that helps brain wellness, memory and a focused mind.
