Q: Does dry skin cause wrinkles?
Dry skin doesn’t create wrinkles – it just makes them more noticeable. Wrinkles are the result of aging, sun damage, smoking and repetitive facial movements such as smiling, frowning or squinting. Well-hydrated skin decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin. The better hydrated your skin is, the firmer and smoother it appears.

The Herbalife NouriFusion Multivitamin Normal to Dry System is perfect for dry skin. The Skin Activator anti-aging line is excellent in combating fine lines and wrinkles.

Q: Do all sunscreens with SPF 15 prevent wrinkles?
Products containing sunscreens with UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum protection help prevent sunburn and wrinkles. All of Herbalife’s SPF products contain both UVA /UVB protection. It’s the UVA protection that shields the skin from the damaging rays of the sun that age the skin.

Herbalife’s NouriFusion and Skin Activator facial moisturizers contain Parsol 1789†, a revolutionary UVA sunscreen that protects the skin from both the long and short UVA rays of the sun. This same ingredient is found in the Radiant C Body Lotion with SPF 15 for all-over, daily protection.

Q: What is Glucosamine and does it help reduce the appearance of wrinkles?
The entire Skin Activator line is formulated with a unique, gentle, non-acid Glucosamine Complex, which helps enhance collagen production, aid hydration, repair weak and damaged skin cells and firm skin.

Independent clinical studies on the UGL Glucosamine Complex in Skin Activator show a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by as much as 57% after just 3 months!*¹

Since Jacquie Carter’s training in March about the importance of caring for our largest organ, I have indeed been taking good care of my skin – it has been a rare exception to miss my daily cleanse, tone and moisturise routines (morning and evening) as well as other weekly exfoliating treatments and masks etc.

The results so far are very encouraging – my skin is much clearer and radiant-looking and I have stopped wearing foundation every day which I had done for years to cover up my skin –  I am sure this is helping my skin even further. (Unfortunately years of neglect, sun-damage and acne have left my face scarred and freckled and I don’t think there is much that can be done about that, but we’ll see…)

I recently contacted Jacquie to ask her a few more questions about acne-prone skin and was interested to hear some new tips that she was kind enough to pass on so I’m sharing them with you here, I hope you will find them helpful: (more…)
