Friday I started a new skincare regimen-and you guys get all of the details. (Plus a chance to try it yourself if you follow along with my progress…) I’m giving the NeriumAD 90 day challenge a try. (And I’m excited!)
I have a confession. I’m totally obsessed with my skin. And it’s one of those strange things. The more I obsess the worse it seems to get. (The obsession. Not my skin. Although I suppose since every day I’m getting a little older that means my skin is getting worse.) I guess that’s just how these things work. I start approaching a birthday with a zero at the end and I remember all of those years I had good skin and didn’t bother to take care of it. And now is when I get to pay for that negligence. Oops!
So as you do when you start an anti-aging skin care regime, you take photos. I have so many photos. I was going to include a few. And then I realized that before photos without after photos have no context. It’s just a picture up close and personal of my face with no makeup. So I’m hanging on to them. (Don’t’ worry…I’ll totally share them at the midpoint and end!)
So why am I so excited? Check out the 90 Day Gallery and 90 Day Real Results Contest. The gallery is full of real pictures from real people who have been using Nerium for 90 days. The results are amazing. (Seriously, take a look…you’ll see.) You can also find out more about the Real Results Contest. Share your before and after photos along with your Nerium story and you can win a luxury spa trip for you and a friend to Miami, Florida. (Including $500 in spa treatments and $500 in spending money!)
So what is the Nerium skincare system? It’s easy-just two products. (Who has time for those thirty-seven step programs, anyway?) Just apply the age-defying day cream in the morning and your NeriumAD at night. Simple, right? Now this isn’t a skin cleanser and you do want to apply it to clean skin so you can keep using what you’re already using if it’s working for you. And that’s it!
So what exactly is it? NeriumAD utilizes the Nerium oleander plant. (It’s the only skin care product on the market that does.) The NAE-8 extract contains antioxidant properties. (It’s also patented and exclusive to Nerium International.) In clinical trials, participants who used the night cream experienced an average reduction of 30% in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. I’m feeling like anything anti-lines, anti-wrinkles and anti-discoloration is a good thing. I just want the skin of a 20 year old who’s never stepped foot in the sun. Is that too much to ask?
We’re three days in and I have 87 more days to go. Will I look half my age when we’re through? Meh…probably not. I’m realistic. But I will totally settle for 30. OK. I’ll settle for 35. See…realistic goals. (Although the before and afters really are amazing. Seriously…look at the gallery.) Stick around…I’ll be back with an update next month!
