The Eyes Have It: Make a Big Impact With Nerium Eye Serum

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-international/with-nerium-eye-serum-a-little-dab-will-do/

Here’s the million-dollar question: Do eye serums really work? What about eye gels? Perhaps you’re wondering if there’s even a difference between these products at all. If you’re anything like the rest of us — you know, men and women working hard to make a living and working even harder to make a life— you’re probably tired of looking tired. You’ve possibly found yourself on the hunt for a solution to eliminate those dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, and puffy eyes. You may even have let skepticism get the better of you, and now you’re suspicious of all the products and promises out there. We get it. Good news, though: we can offer you one small-sized solution with a scientifically proven big impact: Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum.

As Far as The Eye Can See

As a leader in age-defying skincare and wellness solutions, Nerium International receives many inquiries and questions about our groundbreaking products that are sold worldwide. We’re experts in our field and we have the results from independently conducted studies to back up our claims. Here’s a fact: 89 percent of participants in Eye Serum clinical trials showed a decrease in the appearance of fine lines around the eye area, with 80 percent also showing brighter skin. Clearly, Eye Serum is the way to go! Just in case you’re not completely sold on the idea, though, we’ll explain just how applying one pump of product per eye in the morning and evening can help you improve the appearance of tired-looking and puffy eyes, crow’s feet, and dark circles.

Before Your Very Eyes

The skin around your eyes is rather delicate and therefore quick to show age and fatigue. Daily facial expressions, such as squinting and frowning, increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while late-night lifestyles and environmental stressors contribute to puffy eyes and dark circles. What’s done is done, right? Not so fast. Nerium doesn’t have a “what’s done is done” mindset. No, ma’am. We’re more of the “what’s done CAN be undone” variety. For this reason, we customize our approach to anti-aging to allow the development of products that not only address the signs of aging but also target their underlying causes, and our Age-Defying Eye Serum is no different. In an industry of mucho creams, lotions, potions, serums, and gels, you only need a dab of Age-Defying Eye Serum added to your daily skincare regimen to reveal smoother skin and younger-looking eyes.

Eye of Newt, and Toe of Frog

In general, eye serums are more diverse in consistency and typically include ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Retinol, and Neuropeptides. Before making your purchase, also consider the product’s exclusive ingredients and whether results can be backed by science. Above all else, ingredients must benefit your specific skin type by deeply penetrating problem areas and deliver much-needed nutrients. Well, in addition to Eye Serum’s list of common ingredients, our product is also powered by the exclusive SIG-1191™ and I-FIL4R™ ingredients that firms and brightens while fighting the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and fine lines. For a full list of powerful ingredients, click here.

These days, eye gel has also been added to the mix of skincare solutions. “In addition to Nerium’s innovative Age-Defying Eye Serum, Nerium recommends using our cooling eye gel patches,” said Patricia Finn-Martillo, Vice President of Marketing for Nerium International. “Eye-VTM Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches deliver targeted hydration to the delicate skin around your eyes to give you instantly an energized look.” Chief Marketing Officer Amber Olson Rourke added, “Don’t think of eye gel as a substitute for eye serum. It’s a well-crafted compliment to any skincare regimen and will gently calm, sooth and smooth skin for radiant-looking eyes.”

See Eye to Eye

You see, Nerium invests research and development into creating products that offer exceptional results backed by science. Independently conducted clinical trials show continued improvement with four weeks of use. This means that not only does Nerium’s transformative Age-Defying Eye Serum provide immediate smoothing but our product also delivers age-fighting benefits that increase with continued use. Eye Serum is ideal for all skin types and delivers an immediate reduction in the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum also:

  • Supports the skin’s natural structure
  • Firms and brightens the appearance of the eye area
  • Matches your skin’s natural pH level, ensuring optimal skin health

Above all else, Nerium’s Age-Defining Eye Serum delivers both short- and long-term benefits for the appearance of smoother, younger-looking eyes. With just a small amount of Eye Serum applied twice a day, you can see significant improvement in the appearance of dark circles, puffy eyes, fine lines and crow’s feet.

Can you see it now? We’re smiling with our eyes.

Top Tips to Help You Look Younger

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/top-tips-to-help-you-look-younger/

A long time ago, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León became one of the first recorded Europeans to catch sight of what’s now the state of Florida. But what does this historical tidbit have to do with Nerium International? Hold on — we’re getting there. Legend has it that Ponce de León showed up around 1513 while searching for the Fountain of Youth – a magical spring supposedly capable of restoring the youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its waters. The point is that even back then, people were on an unrelenting quest to find ways to fight the signs of aging. This has been going on for a while, folks.

Fountain of Youth

We believe the Fountain of Youth does exist. It’s true. Perhaps not as a clear, cool natural spring in which if you bathe all signs of aging will be erased. Rather, it exists in our scientifically-based, exclusive age-defying products crafted by Nerium International. Here at Nerium, innovative Western science is integrated with Eastern medicine to create one-of-a-kind products. The result is a customized approach to product development in which we not only address the signs of aging but also target the underlying causes.

With an innovative and award-winning product line – including Age-Defying Night and Day Creams, Age-Defying Eye Serum, Eye-VTM Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches, Firming Body Contour Cream, EHT® Brain Formula, Youth FactorTM Complete Vitality Complex, and Youth FactorTM Superfood & Antioxidant Boost Powder, Nerium now also offers a Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash and IllumaBoostTM Brightening & Shield complexion booster – just to make your life (and skin, body, and mind) a little better and a lot more youthful.

Bag of Tricks

In Nerium’s dedicated search for ultimate skincare and wellness solutions, we’ve made a few discoveries of our own and learned several lessons along the way. For this reason, we want to share five tips that will help you look good and feel great at your age!

    1. Dare to Go Bare: Less is definitely more when it comes to wearing makeup after a certain age. That doesn’t mean women 40+ can’t be daring and bold with their makeup choices. It only means you must be better with your application, says celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg. Still, nothing is more beautiful than clear and healthy-looking skin. “The more skin you can see, the better,” says makeup artist Sandy Linter. “As long as it’s well-hydrated, fresh skin looks much more youthful than an obviously covered complexion.” We agree.
    2. Smile More: Late American actress and comedian Phyllis Diller always said, “A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” As a company who believes in the power of positivity, we know that one of the greatest compliments to flawless skin is a bright smile and positive attitude. In a study, Oral B found that showing off your pearly whites can make you look at least five years younger! Not to mention, it’s not going to cost you a thing – smiling is free!
    3. Hide Wrinkles: “The best way to hide your wrinkles is to hydrate your skin by using a Day Cream designed to moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles and crafted with essential ingredients to soften skin,” says Patricia Finn-Martillo, Vice President of Marketing at Nerium International. A few additional steps, such as avoiding harsh makeup and hair colors, will also go a long way to soften your look and make wrinkles less noticeable. Most importantly, keep your skin hydrated from the inside and out by drinking plenty of water and always applying sunscreen. A healthy body and skin translate to a healthy and younger-looking you!
    4. Clear, Clean Skin: Step up your skincare regimen by gently cleaning your face with a two-step lightweight cleanser. Nerium’s new Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash is ideal for all skin types and removes makeup, impurities, and air pollution from the skin’s surface to reveal a glowing complexion. Since you’re likely already spending time washing your face twice a day, the tip here is to use the right Face Wash that delivers proven results. Face Wash is also gentle enough to use mornings and nights and is great for preparing the skin for Nerium Age-Defying Night and Day Creams and Age-Defying Eye Serum. Try Nerium’s New Double-Cleansing Face Wash. Benefits include:
      • Removes makeup and impurities
      • Provides gentle, yet effective, cleansing
      • Helps remove the effects of air pollution on the skin’s surface
      • Has a pH that works in harmony with the skin
      • Is ideal for all skin types (dermatologist tested)
      • Can be used morning and night
      • Is great for cleaning and preparing the skin for Nerium’s Night and Day Creams
    5. Break, Shake, Illuminate: Dara Torres, a five-time U.S. Olympian and oldest swimmer to compete in the Olympic Games, once told an assembly of students: “Never put an age limit on your dreams.” We couldn’t agree more. If you feel old and tired, you’re probably going to look old and tired. And, that’s not what we want! Our goal is to make you feel fearless, confident, and upbeat with every move you make. At times, you may need a little help from a friend, which is why Nerium introduced IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield – an innovative booster that amplifies your skincare regimen by adding a boost of ingredients to your existing products to help brighten, hydrate and guard against environmental stressors. Now 50, Torres’ story has inspired many older athletes to not let age limit their dreams. Since aging is a natural part of life, we want to make sure that dull or damaged skin never ruins your day or your dreams. Try Nerium’s new IllumaBoost Brightening & Shield. Key benefits include:
      • Works to brighten the skin’s appearance and help even skin tone
      • Helps shield the skin from environmental stressors
      • Helps plump and moisturize the skin
      • Fights the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin tone and skin damage caused by air pollution
      • Can be mixed with: Age-Defying Night and Day Creams, foundation or sunscreen
      • Is ideal for all skin types (dermatologist tested)

With these tips and tricks up your sleeve, you’ll be ready to reveal younger-looking skin in no time. We want to hear your tips for younger-looking skin! Let us know your favorites by commenting below.

Never Skip a Beat, Find Your Slight Edge

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/never-skip-a-beat-find-your-slight-edge/

Success means different things to different people. For some, being successful equates to earning a six-figure income or driving an expensive car, while others measure success by their impact on society or being happy and passionate about their life’s work. Regardless of your definition or your goals, the best thing you can do for yourself is close your eyes and think about your greatest professional or personal aspiration. Think about where you are now and all the necessary steps you’ll have to take to reach your end goal, successfully. For Skip Bailey, a driver at Villa Creek in Dallas, his end goal was crystal clear: he knew he had to lose 200 pounds. What Skip didn’t realize was that The Slight Edge was going to help him do it.

Small Increments of Change

After a lifelong struggle to lose weight, Skip committed to a personal plan of action. With a goal of losing 200 pounds, he slimmed down from 375 to 177 pounds in just six years. Don’t misunderstand: Skip’s body transformation wasn’t quick or easy. He didn’t discover a new diet trend, try innovative surgery or seek a quick fix to help him achieve his goal; instead, Skip accidentally stumbled upon The Slight Edge. The idea behind The Slight Edge is so remarkably simple, “I lost ten pounds, twenty times,” Skip explains. Make a few small changes to your life every day, over a long period of time, and you can just about reach any goal you set your mind too – that’s The Slight Edge! Skip offers encouragement to others, stating, “If I can do it, anyone can.”

Your Slight Edge

Discovering the power of The Slight Edge helped Skip recognize a power within himself. You see, your slight edge is all about making daily decisions and small changes to your life. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, that’s the point, according to Slight Edge author Jeff Olson. Everyone, regardless of education or opportunity, has an ability to choose their actions. Making small, daily changes to your life is easy to do but also easy not to do. “The thing is, all of us already know how to do everything it takes to make us an outrageous success,” says Olson. “Just keep doing the things that have gotten you this far. The same activities that take us from failure to survival would also take us from survival to success – if we would just keep doing them.” That’s exactly what Skip did.

Master the Mundane

One of Olson’s favorite quotes is by American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson: “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Emerson’s quote represents one of the fundamental ideas behind The Slight Edge, according to Olson. The concept of The Slight Edge is straightforward – integrate small steps and changes consistently over a period and you’ll soon discover that these simple repetitive actions performed daily lead to greater things. Grasping The Slight Edge’s simple, mind-changing philosophy became Skip’s “Aha!” moment. The Slight Edge represents an entirely new way of thinking; a way of processing information that enables you to make the simple daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire.

Easy to Do, Easy Not to Do

Skip joined 24-Hour Fitness. For the first month, he didn’t have the courage to go inside the gym. “I was embarrassed at how big I was. I didn’t want people to make fun of me.” But once he made the decision to step out of his comfort zone and walk inside, Skip knew he had an edge! At the beginning of his journey, the road was physically and emotionally long and hard. Now, Skip walks about five miles every day with no signs of slowing down. The changes Skip has made to his lifestyle are easy to do, e.g., instead of picking up Krispy Kremes for breakfast, he now enjoys scrambled eggs with peppers, onions, and salsa on toast. In addition to healthy eating, Skip also started walking, everywhere. He even gets up at 4:15 a.m. to walk. “Once you have a clear goal and you believe in yourself, there’s nothing holding you back,” says Olson. “It’s amazing what Skip has done in six years.Knowing that The Slight Edge has had a part in helping Skip accomplish his personal goal of losing 200 pounds is amazing. I’m so grateful that he shared his story with us,” says Olson.

Thank you, Skip!

5 Skincare Mistakes that are Damaging Your Skin (and the Nerium Product Solutions to Fix It)

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/5-skincare-mistakes-that-are-damaging-your-skin-and-the-nerium-product-solutions-to-fix-it/

We’re more than seven months into the year, and so far, the best anti-aging trend of 2017 has been skin protection and prevention. You may think that younger-looking skin comes at an astronomical cost but it’s much more simple than that: aging gracefully simply requires sticking to a healthy lifestyle and finding the right skin care product for your face. That’s one giant leap in the right direction towards flawless skin at any age! Let’s consider this: if protection and prevention are on trend, what are we supposed to DO and NOT do when it comes to our skincare regimen?

DO Stay on Trend with These Tips for Healthy, Youthful-looking Skin:

  1. Protection: Protect your skin against environmental factors and stressors such as excessive sun exposure, smoke, and pollution, as these can cause irreparable damage to your face, neck, and body, resulting in an appearance that looks dull and damaged beyond your years.
  2. Prevention: Drink plenty of water, follow a nutritional and balanced diet, try a variety of fitness routines  (e.g., body weight training – so much fun!), and always apply sunscreen before taking on the day. You’ve got this!

Sometimes, you may not even know that your lifestyle and habits are causing damage to your skin, and the repercussions of your style of living are only visible years later. What then? Well, good news:, it’s never too late to STOP doing what’s harmful to your skin and to START doing what’s healthy.

More than anything else, Nerium cares about the condition of your skin, body, and mind. That’s what we do. For this reason, we would like to also share a few skin care DON’TS to help prevent damage to your face, and a few extra tips to help with the rest of you.

Don’t. Do. This.

  1. Don’t overlook the importance of double cleansing your face at night: If you wear foundation, long-lasting makeup, or daily sunscreen, Dr. Rabia Malik recommends double cleansing your face and neck because these types of products are especially difficult to remove. Consider how much dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities from smoke and pollutants come off on your facial cloth just with a one-step cleansing routine. Adding one more step to your routine allows for a much deeper clean to wash away most of the daily grime! Who wouldn’t want clear, clean, and beautiful-looking skin? Well, luckily for you, Nerium’s new Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash is sure to remove oil-based impurities and makeup when applied to dry skin. Then, after adding water, Face Wash transforms into a soft, milky lather for deep-down, yet gentle, cleansing. Now, you can easily remove non-waterproof makeup and all the day’s dirt with Nerium’s Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash. It’s by far the freshest way to start and end your day!
  2. Don’t moisturize too much or too little: Moisturizing your skin too much can lead to shiny, greasy skin while moisturizing not enough will leave your skin feeling tight, flaky, and looking dull. While Nerium Age-Defying Night Cream works to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and enlarged pores, our Age-Defying Day Cream delivers all the moisture and hydration your skin needs.
  3. Don’t forget to use eye serum: Why use Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum instead of an eye cream? Glad you asked! Serums are “fluid and lighter than an eye cream,” according to The Dermatology Review, and also tend to absorb more easily into the skin not leaving a greasy residue. Nerium Age-Defying Eye Serum addresses the signs of emerging fine lines and crow’s feet around your eye — all at the same time! BONUS TIP: Compliment Eye Serum with Nerium Eye-V™ Moisture Boost Hydrogel Patches! Our innovative patches deliver targeted hydration to the delicate skin around your eyes for the appearance of an instant and refreshing “eye lift”.
  4. Don’t dismiss dull-looking skin: Your lifestyle impacts the appearance of your skin. Fortunately, many issues can be resolved by getting plenty of rest, drinking enough water, and regularly getting exercise. Still, at times, you may feel and look like you need a bit of a boost. IllumaBoostTM Brightening & Shield is Nerium’s latest innovative product — a skin booster that should be added to your daily skin care regimen to help brighten, hydrate and guard your face against environmental stressors. Simply mix a couple of pumps with your Night or Day Cream, foundation or sunscreen for a quick boost of skin-benefiting ingredients. You can also apply it directly to your skin. It’s that easy!
  5. Don’t forget the rest of your body: Nerium customers and fans have come to expect more from Nerium than just skincare products. Our comprehensive approach to anti-aging transforms how you look on the outside and feel on the inside. For those who need a little more help on the outside, Nerium offers Firming Body Contour Cream – a Nerium’s breakthrough formula targeting problem areas for a sleeker, more youthful-looking body.

We’re always looking for more tips, dos and don’ts and just general feedback from our fans! If you have any suggestions, questions or additions to our list, please comment below. We would love to hear from you! In the meantime, which ONE of our Nerium products would you recommend to a friend?

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-business/5-skincare-mistakes-that-are-damaging-your-skin-and-the-nerium-product-solutions-to-fix-it/

We’re more than seven months into the year, and so far, the best anti-aging trend of 2017 has been skin protection and prevention. You may think that younger-looking skin comes at an astronomical cost but it’s much more simple than that: aging gracefully simply requires sticking to a healthy lifestyle and finding the right skin care product for your face. That’s one giant leap in the right direction towards flawless skin at any age! Let’s consider this: if protection and prevention are on trend, what are we supposed to DO and NOT do when it comes to our skincare regimen?

DO Stay on Trend with These Tips for Healthy, Youthful-looking Skin:

  1. Protection: Protect your skin against environmental factors and stressors such as excessive sun exposure, smoke, and pollution, as these can cause irreparable damage to your face, neck, and body, resulting in an appearance that looks dull and damaged beyond your years.
  2. Prevention: Drink plenty of water, follow a nutritional and balanced diet, try a variety of fitness routines  (e.g., body weight training – so much fun!), and always apply sunscreen before taking on the day. You’ve got this!

Sometimes, you may not even know that your lifestyle and habits are causing damage to your skin, and the repercussions of your style of living are only visible years later. What then? Well, good news:, it’s never too late to STOP doing what’s harmful to your skin and to START doing what’s healthy.

Dream Big – Act on It Daily

Shared by: http://neriumblog.net/nerium-international/dream-big-act-on-it-daily/

Now that Get Real 2017 is out of the way, it’s time for a real chat. I’m back in Dallas, Texas, and I’m more motivated and inspired than ever before. Can you believe another amazing event has come and gone? It was wonderful meeting so many of you at the event, and getting to hear many stories of what Nerium has meant to you. Ever since Get Real, I’ve been thinking about how different my life would have been without the incredible people I’ve met because of Nerium. This had me thinking about all the “what ifs” in life.

Picture This

Imagine what the world would have looked like if no one had the courage to pursue their dreams. What do you think would have happened if Walt Disney gave up on his dream after being rejected by a publishing house because he lacked imagination? Or what if Oprah Winfrey didn’t overcome her troubled, tragic, and difficult childhood to become one of the richest and most influential women in the world? The list of people who have achieved great things despite struggling initially is long. In fact, most successful people become successful by failing many times, until they eventually succeed. What if your name is supposed to be on that list of extraordinary people, and all you have to do is take the first step?

What Ifs

I’m sure, at some point in time, you’ve had thoughts like this before: What if I started my career when I was younger or what if I had more time and money? We can come up with hundreds of excuses to not step out of our comfort zone and take a risk. The thing is, those people we tout as “successful,” “lucky” or “talented” … they are just the ones who make a DECISION daily to step outside of their comfort zones. You see, you accomplish a goal by daily decisions, not by a Hail Mary pass, a stroke of good luck, or one brilliant idea. Success is a daily choice. Every day you are going to get to decide to stay within your comfort zone – or step outside of it to work towards your goal.

That’s where Nerium comes in. We’ve never wanted to be just a skin care or wellness company. Our goal has been to create an opportunity available to people from all walks of life. An opportunity to have the life you’ve always envisioned. And the key to living your dream life is taking those daily steps to get to your goal.

Dare to Dream Big (and 3 Tips to Get You Started)

Easier said than done, right? Many of you’ve already defined your dream or goal. When you close your eyes, you can see it – it’s within reach. You know what you want and you’re putting in a lot of time and effort to achieve exactly what you set out to do whether that’s a flexible lifestyle or financial independence. I wanted to give you a few tips to get you started or keep you on the right track.

Tip #1: The Right People

I can’t stress this enough. “Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, and support your ambitions.” This quote by British author Roy Bennett says it all. In those moments when you feel like a failure or that nothing’s going your way, your support needs to be, well, supportive. I made the decision to be an executive and a mom. I am passionate about the work I do, and passionate about my family and daughter but it can be a tough balancing act some days. On the days where I feel like nothing is going right- I turn to the encouragers in my life, my cheer squad, that can uplift me and redirect my focus on the positive. Who is your cheer squad? Know who they are and don’t be afraid to lean on them as needed!

Tip #2: Expand Your Comfort Zone

I believe that all individuals are born equal. It’s true that some people may encounter more obstacles than others but those obstacles can be used as fuel to propel you to success. If you want to succeed bad enough, you’ll find a way. Most of the time, the way to optimal performance is to step into discomfort and uncertainty. If you’re scared about your next venture or some challenge, my advice is to take a risk, and do it anyway!

Tip #3: Celebrate Your Failures

Think of it this way: if you’ve tried and failed, at least you tried, and you probably learned a lot from that experience. Each time you fail, consider it a lesson learned. Learn from it and move on because with every baby step you’re one step closer to reaching your goal.

Live the Life You’ve Envisioned

I’m so excited about my upcoming #RealChats on August 8 at 4:30 p.m. I have so many of my own experiences to share with you. I hope we can connect and I invite you to join in on the conversation during this Facebook Live Event. So; to get things started, here’s an activity for the month of August. Most people have dreams but only a few will make their dreams come true. Visualize your goal as if it has already been reached…what do you seeShare your answers in the comment section.
