Some facts about Nerium. Nerium's main ingredient is a proprietary blend of NAE-8 (extract from nerium oleander plant) and aloe (a natural preservative). The anti-aging effects of NAE-8 were accidentally discovered during research at MD Anderson. Nerium AD has been scientifically proven by third party researchers to improve skin tone, texture, fine lines, & wrinkles, all while tightening and lifting the skin. This lifting and tightening of the skin, and high percentage of antioxidants is what makes this product stand out in the vast field of cosmetic products that are out there. I personally have noticed a change on my eye lids, among other places, where the lifting has helped. The company does not recommend putting it on or near your eyes, because it is not marketed as an eye cream, but it has worked for me. Also many of the girls who are on our Louisville Nerium team have put it on their post baby stomachs and have noticed a significant change in the way it looks. They are happy with the fact that their skin appears much tighter. I would certainly want to try Nerium before spending a lot of money on an invasive procedure. It yields a 30% improvement within 30 days, whereas comparable products available yield 2-7% improvement. Nerium also gives back 30% of all profits to Nerium International, which continues its research with the nerium oleander extract on certain cancers, HIV, and other viral illnesses. I always like to work with companies who want to give back to research to help cure diseases. That is still a top priority on their list.

This photo is my own personal hand results. I took them in similar lighting, and this was after 60 days of use. I have also thought my hands made me look much older than I am, and never could find a product that I thought would help them look like my real age. Nerium was a game changer for me. I will never be a hand model, but I am definitely more confident in the way my hands look.
The day cream also works amazingly. Here are the ingredients it has in it, and why they work to help your skin. It has the NAE-8 extract found in the night cream which is the patented antioxidant that helps with all the items listed above. It also has the following, tripeptide blend which helps increase the appearance of smoother, tighter, and younger skin. It has Vit C complex which is the key to maintaing healthy youthful skin. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps to slow the rate of free radical damage to our skin. This damage can cause fine lines and dry skin. It helps our skin to produce collagen which is a protein that helps to firm and plump our skin. It has a green tea antioxidant which helps with reducing the appearance of wrinkles and discoloration. And lastly it has hyaluronic acid which works to help our skin to hold moisture. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. By doing this it helps the skin feel plumper. It also works to help repair the skin from dryness, environmental stresses such as pollution, and daily irritation.
As you can see by reading this, Nerium is the real deal, and this company has made sure that it is putting a top notch product line out there, with amazing ingredients, in my opinion.
One last reason that I love using Nerium, is that it is so easy to use. There are not multiple steps and products involved. You simply wash your face at night with a mild soap. I personally use Cetaphil. I use a clarisonic to wash it. After you wash your face, then you rinse it. Leave your face damp, then you use 3 pumps of the Nerium night cream, blend it on your face and neck. It will dry on your face and feel like a mask at first, but this feeling will fade. You leave the product on your face all night. You then rinse your face with warm water, and I apply the Nerium day cream, and a separate face only SPF, then you are ready for the day. It is really that simple!
I hope you found this post to be informative. We should all educate ourselves about skin care lines, and be informed on what we need to be putting on our skin to help protect it. It is our largest organ. Just wanted to write this, so that any current customers, or new customers could have a place to come for information. If you would like to order either of these products you can do so from my website here. I would definitely sign up as a Preferred Customer to get the best price, and you can delay shipment or cancel at any time without any problems. One bottle can last on average about 2 months. I am happy to answer any questions via email at Gretchen_nerium@yahoo.com I promise to write a new creative post later this week.
