5. From The Inside Out

5.  From The Inside Out

Since I’m trying to live a healthier lifestyle, I feel I should be doing it from the inside out.  On this journey, I came across Arbonne.  Arbonne is a company that creates products that are vegan, gluten-free and have no animal testing.  I got introduced to this at the perfect time.  If what I put IN my body is important to me, so should what I put ON my body.   I was hooked and signed up to become a consultant right away.  Well, after discussing it with my husband of course.

I started off with the skin care products, RE9 Advanced.  My skin had never looked or felt so fantastic.  Where was this stuff when I was a teenager?  I used to have extremely bad skin.  I visited the dermatologist monthly and had to take prescription drugs, which did not help and made my skin dry out in the worst way.

The facial products I use have Vitamin C and Sustainable Orange Stem Cells that help minimize wrinkles as well as anti-aging benefits.  Since I am getting up there in age, I want to be proactive and handle my skin before it is too late.

Since I was so impressed with the facial cleansing products, I thought why not use the makeup as well!!  Arbonne makeup is just as amazing because it contains moisturizing botanicals and age-defying ingredients to give my skin a fabulous look.  What does this all mean?  I get to look younger by using products that I was already using but now they are better for me.  They have everything from liquid foundation, powder foundation, primer, eyeshadow, lipstick, lip gloss, blush, you name it, they have it and it is all Vegan! I was never a make-up kind of girl because anything I would use would irritate my skin, or clog my pores. The makeup actually helps my skin.

My favorite part is the nutritional side.  This is what I was drawn to the most.  My husband and I were always looking for the best protein shake out there as a way to supplement meals in our fast pace life.  We tried a lot, but never one that was vegan!  I believe I have found it. We have found this is a great way start our mornings, or have a mid-day snack.  It is especially helpful when I get home from work hungry and need a quick pick me up before we go to the gym. I also love the Herbal Detox Tea.  I like to have this first thing in the morning with a bit of lemon juice.  This helps me to get my digestive system rolling.  As mentioned in past blogs, I HAD digestion problems.

There are so many wonderful products.  Just this week, they started selling essential oils. If you want to know more you can visit my website here.  (They even have products for men!!)
