Sharing the Power of Melaleuca Renew

power-of-renewHow a chance encounter equaled big relief for the Robinson family

Nicole lay in bed listening to the sounds of her son tossing and turning in the other room. She heard him scratching, scratching—always scratching. In the morning he would wake cranky and exhausted with several new scabs as evidence of his nails worrying away at his dry, irritated skin through the night.

Despite going to every specialist she could find, Nicole was still lying there in the middle of the night listening to her 3-year-old suffer with severely dry skin. What started off as dry patches behind her baby’s knees and arms, had steadily progressed until it covered her toddler’s entire body and made it impossible for him to ever feel comfortable— even at night.

“We tried all the different creams,” Nicole says. “They would clear it up for a little bit, but it would always return.” Then one day Nicole took her son to an indoor playground, and the woman sitting next to her noticed her son’s skin problems.

“She asked me what I was using on him, and I said, ‘Everything! I’ve tried everything, and I don’t know what to do anymore,” Nicole recalls.

What Nicole didn’t know was that the woman sitting next to her, Senior Director Danie Branch, knew all about the troubles of severely dry skin. Danie’s husband had once suffered from terribly dry skin and it was a chance encounter just like this that led Danie to discover the lasting relief of Renew Intensive Skin Therapy. So when Danie pulled a travel-size bottle of Renew out of her pocket and handed it to Nicole with her business card, it was really her way of paying it forward.

“She told me to take the lotion and try it for a few days,” Nicole recalls. “If I liked it, then I could give her a call.”

Impressed by Danie’s kindness, Nicole ended up watching a Delivering Wellness presentation that day. The natural ingredients and quality products sold themselves, and Nicole enrolled and ordered a large bottle of Renew.

The results were astounding.

After three years of trying everything and anything she could, all with little success, Nicole’s son now had clear skin after just four days.*

“Honestly, starting Renew really saved my life,” Nicole says. “My son wasn’t sleeping; he was up all night. Now he sleeps; he doesn’t dig himself raw anymore. There’s a big difference in my house.”

Nicole had been taking photos to document for her dermatologist just how bad her son’s skin had become. Less than a week after starting Renew, Nicole got to take one of the happiest pictures of her young sons’ life: him with clear, healthy skin.

And Nicole isn’t the only one who’s grateful. Her son is also a big fan of Renew.

“He’s always like, ‘Mommy, I just want my Melaleuca cream,’” Nicole says. “We tried other creams, but they would burn his skin. Renew doesn’t, and it really works for him.”

The Robinson house is a happier place these days, all thanks to a stranger who paid it forward and shared the power of Renew.

1 Nix Hot Showers

Standing under steaming water for 30 minutes can be your own slice of heaven. But they itchy irritation that follows is far from celestial. That’s because long exposure to hot water can actually break down the lipid barriers in the skin and lead to moisture loss. To prevent this, scale back your shower time and shoot for 10 minutes, once a day, with warm—not hot—water. If you really need to warm up your core body temperature, try a bath with a capful of Renew Bath Oil instead. Your skin will thank you.

2 Layer Moisture

To get lasting hydration and protection from the elements, layer your moisture just like you do your clothes. Start with Renew Bath Oil or Body wash in the shower, then layer on Renew Lotion right after you shower. Applying Renew Lotion to lightly damp skin helps your body capture some of the water still on skin and use it to hydrate.

3 Stow Lotion Sinkside

Hand soap can be very drying, especially the cheap stuff in public restrooms. Keep a bottle of Renew Lotion in your purse and by your bathroom sink to remind you to moisturize after every hand washing. For extra dry skin, try switching to Renew Hand Soap.

4 Grab Gloves

Don’t wait until your fingers are in danger of frostbite before donning a pair of gloves. The skin on your hands has fewer oil glands, which means it dries out faster in cold, dry weather. Gloves provide an extra barrier of protection from the elements. Before you put them on, add a quick layer of Renew Lotion so you can hydrate your hands on the trip to work.

5 Show Lips Some Love

The skin on your lips is very thin and it’s constantly exposed to the elements. As a result, your lips can lose up to 10 times more moisture when compared to the rest of your body. Using a Sun Shades® Lip Balm with SPF 15 protection and moisturizers like jojoba oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth both outdoors and in.

6 Don’t Skimp on Sunscreen

No matter how low the temperature drops, UV rays don’t take a holiday. Keep your skin protected, especially when hitting the slopes—those long hours in the sun can be amplified by glare from the snow. Apply one of the Sun Shades sunscreens 30 minutes before you go outside to enjoy broad-spectrum protection from UVA and UVB rays.

7 Hook up a Humidifier

Humidifiers put moisture back into the air and help prevent your hair and skin from drying out. This is especially important if your home uses forced air. That constant stream of dry, hot air wreaks havoc on your skin.

8 Keep Feet Comfy

If you’re not careful, winter can lead to some gnarly-looking heels and calluses. To sidestep a horror show come next spring, use a pumice stone to exfoliate feet in the shower and be sure to apply a thick layer of Renew Lotion both after you shower and before you go to bed each night. Cover feet with a cotton sock to help the moisture soak into the skin while you sleep. This keeps feet soft and helps prevent painful cracking and peeling.

Healthy Skin Basics

woman-thinking-lotion-300THERE ARE PLENTY of beneficial products that can help you protect your skin’s soft, youthful glow.

But those products won’t help your skin much if you’re ignoring the basics. Before you put on the products, be sure to follow these simple daily habits for healthy skin.

Treat your skin gently

Cleanse your skin daily with a gentle facial cleanser and moisturizing body wash to keep  it hydrated and free of pore-clogging debris.

Pat dry. Vigorously rubbing your skin dry after bathing irritates it. Patting dry, on the other hand, is less irritating and leaves more moisture behind.

Use warm, not hot water. Hot water strips the oils from your skin faster, leaving it less protected from moisture loss.

Use mild soaps that won’t irritate your skin.

Always shave with a lubricating shave gel or cream to protect your skin from unneeded irritation.

Moisturize daily. A good moisturizer protects your skin against moisture loss while attracting more moisture into the skin. As a result, your skin will stay softer and feel more hydrated.

Don’t skimp on sun protection

Much of the aging your skin undergoes is caused by sun exposure. And that doesn’t just mean a summer day at the beach. The sun’s still shining even in colder weather, and its rays can still get under your skin and cause skin-aging free radical damage.

Make it a habit to cover up when you’re going out. Wear long sleeves, cover your legs, and find a wide-brimmed hat. If you are going to expose some skin, be sure to put on a broad-spectrum sunscreen first, with an SPF rating of at least 15, and reapply it every two hours.

Drink plenty of water

Your skin depends on water to function normally. When you stay hydrated, your skin is able to stay plump, soft, and healthier-looking. When you get dehydrated, you’ll notice your skin sagging more, losing its glow, and feeling dry. Water also helps sweep away toxins in your body that would harm your skin.

Eat a healthy diet

Here’s another reason to watch your sugar intake: sugar can break down collagen and elastin in your skin, resulting in less-supple skin that’s more prone to wrinkles. Do your skin a favor and cut out the sugar and empty carbs. A healthy diet of vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, along with the right supplementation, provides the nutrients your skin relies on to function properly. For a real skin-health boost, get more extra virgin olive oil in your diet, which is brimming with skin-beneficial oleic acid.

Get enough sleep

Sleep is when your skin rejuvenates. While you sleep, your skin cells are resupplied with oxygen. Sleep also releases human growth hormone, which promotes cell turnover and collagen production, keeping it healthier and more supple. After a good night’s sleep, it’s no coincidence that your skin feels good in the morning.
