Something New

Today's post is not super long, or filled with food pictures, but it is exciting!

As you may or may not have read on my little "What Runs Me" (about me) section...
I do a little skin care consulting in my spare time. WELL, I've decided to take this a step further and create a full on business with this. Honestly, I'm not diggin' my desk job all that much, and cannot see myself working for someone else for the next 40 years (YIKES!). So, I'm going into business for myself! For now, at least, I'm keeping my full-time job but hopefully, I will be able to let it go soon enough.

So, some background as to what I am doing and how I got started:

I suffered from acne since I was in my early early teens. And nothing worked. Dermatologists prescribed creams and pills and really, it did not help much. I had tried Proactiv in the past but it was too harsh for my skin.

And then I was introduced to Proactiv's cousin, Unblemish. Unblemish (among other products) was created by Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields, the same dermatologists that created Proactiv in the early '90s. But their Unblemish was different- They created it with actual medication included and soothing botanicals. Well, I tried it. AND IT WORKED. To this day, my skin has not been better. It's clear (of ANY acne), smooth, soft! I cannot say how it has helped me. I even had a couple of my friends try it (their acne was worse than mine) and they now have amazing looking skin! For a lot of people, it was been Heaven-sent.

Since I was using the products and I knew they worked for me (and I loved them), I decided to get myself a pretty good discount and sell them. This way, I win with the discount, and others win with these amazing products.

Someone asked: "What if you were able to partner with the doctors when they created Proactiv?" Um... yeah, for me, that's enough said. I LOVE learning about health, fitness, nutrition, and skin care (I worked in makeup for 2 1/2 years...) so this was right up my alley... (although you learn SO MUCH from the online and phone trainings.)

Doctors Rodan and Fields have four different regimens for different skin needs:
UNBLEMISH - "Clinically proven to combat the entire acne cycle, this sophisticated regimen helps unclog pores, clears breakouts and calms your complexion to keep pimples, blackheads and post-acne marks from making an unwelcome appearance on your face—and in your life."
SOOTHE - "Calm the flush-blush reaction of a hyper-sensitive complexion with SOOTHE. Clinically proven to reduce redness and irritation in as little as 5 minutes, SOOTHE helps interrupt the inflammatory cascade, strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier, calms redness, and reduces irritation so that you can take comfort in having a healthy-looking complexion every day."
REVERSE - "It's not what you see...It's what you don't see. Exposure to the sun and the environment can leave you with less-than-youthful skin. Erase the signs of premature aging, including brown spots, dullness, and sun damage. REVERSE Regimen exfoliates, lightens, brightens, and protects your skin for a more even tone and texture."
ANTI-AGE - "This Regimen refines texture, energizes skin cells, and signals the building of collagen...Clinical tests have demonstrated that peptides stimulate natural collagen production and improve skin firmness and elasticity, while reducing the length and depth of wrinkles."

Sorry, lots of information but they are just so... magical (?)... I couldn't help but posting the info!

The results from other users are definitely amazing
This is after using the Reverse system
She is one of our consultants that has had great results!

So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, first of all, I'm excited about the products! And second, I'm excited about my new business. This is different than anything I have come across (especially those MLM scams...no thank you). I'm in business for myself but not by myself. I have a powerful team of supporting people to help me take off. I could not be happier with this.

If you have any questions at all about the products or opportunity you let me know!

Ok, enough rambling on... have you done any Green Week Challenges yet????
