Importance of Skin Toner and other factors to Prevent Breakdown of Skin
Importance of Skin Toner and other factors to Prevent Breakdown of Skin
October 20, 1999
I have been receiving several happy testimonials concerning the Enfuselle C+E Repair P.M. along with many emails/phone calls regarding improvement of my skin as revealed in October issue of Women’s Fitness (ref: new photo on back pain article). Thank you for letting me know you see the difference! I have never had “good skin”, but Enfuselle has really made a difference in its texture/ firmness, old acne scars, and fine lines around my eyes. There is a BIG difference in the texture of my neck! I have been using Enfuselle C+E Repair P.M. both at night and in the morning, but I must confess I’ve also been using two other products by Enfuselle - the Hydrating Toner and the Infusing Mineral Masque. While in Barcelona this summer I met with the scientist, Jim Green, who invented the method of delivery the Enfuselle skin care line uses to transport vitamins and phyto-nutrients directly into the skin (see previous newsletter regarding their patented delivery system which allows full penetration without oxidation). He explained to me the importance and difference of the Enfuselle Hydrating Toner and the Infusing Mineral Masque.
First of all, I’ve always heard about the importance of using skin toner after washing the face for maintaining proper “pH balance” of the skin, but I didn’t realize iron in tap water breaks down the skin! Now I understand why the women in Paris never use anything, but Evian or distilled water to wash their face – they never use tap water! I thought that they were being “French”, but I must admit I’ve never seen anyone in Paris with bad skin!
What makes the Enfuselle Hydrating Toner so special is that it contains “Phytic Acid”. Check out the label on your toner at home to see if it contains this ingredient. “Phytic Acid” is all natural and it is derived from rice. What makes “Phytic Acid” so special? Research has proven that it inactivates Iron from reacting with the hydrogen peroxide found on human skin to form skin-damaging hydroxyl radical. Be sure to always use Enfuselle Hydrating Toner after you wash your face and neck to neutralize and inactivate iron from damaging your skin. Enfuselle has two different formulas of toner, but the Hydrating Toner doesn’t dry out the skin no matter how often you use it. I have very oily skin and a lot of toners make my skin produce even more oil - but not Enfuselle’s hydrating formula. Don’t forget to wipe the back of your hands with toner too! Women often forget to take care of their hands and this can age your appearance (also the neck!). I keep a small bottle of toner in my kitchen to help reverse the damage I created by not wearing gloves all these years and at the barn where I keep my horse. I wish that I would’ve taken better care of my hands when younger, but using both the Hydrating Toner and the C+E Repair P.M. has reversed some of the damage and greatly improved their appearance.
Quick tip about hands: As we age, our skin naturally thins and veins start to “pop out” on back of hands. This can really add “years” to their appearance! If you have this problem (most women do over age 27), just put your hands above your head for a few seconds before taking any photo (especially when taking a photo that has hands by the face!). This helps the blood in your hands flow back towards the heart - thus reverse gravitational pull. Daily brushing using my special CRT Skin Tightening sequence will help thicken the skin so less veins “pop”.
Using a masque is very important for maintaining healthy skin. The primary function of skin (our largest organ) is elimination. We need to exfoliate and we need to drink lots of water to help our skin perform and look its best. Using a masque not only exfoliates, but it also allows the skin to absorb nutrients. I have previously written about natural masques most commonly used in the modeling industry (i.e.: oatmeal, sour cream, honey, smashed strawberries, even powdered kitty litter!) so you can pull that information from the archive section. However, when Jim Green told me about the Enfuselle Infusing Mineral Masque, I became very excited because I understood how his breakthrough delivery system made this masque superior to all other masques.
One of the primary reasons skin loses elasticity is because of mineral deficiency not vitamin deficiency. Unfortunately eating more vegetables won’t give us all of our necessary minerals because vegetables today don’t contain nutrients like yesteryear, due to topsoil depletion. This is why it is so important to supplement in addition to eating a healthy diet. Our body also absorbs nutrients through its skin. This is why having a mud bath, full body botanical wrap or even swimming in the ocean is so healthy. It is also why it is so important not to soak in chlorinated water and to shower immediately after swimming in a chlorinated pool. Talk about skin breaking down – all chemicals, not just chlorine, are so detrimental to our skin.
Well, Enfuselle’s Infusing Mineral Masque scientifically takes the skin’s ability to absorb nutrients to a higher level. “Infusing” equates with penetration – now you can exfoliate and get full nutritional value from the masque’s mineral content because of its special delivery system. This masque is so light and easy to apply. In my opinion, no other masque can compare in quality, price or nutritional value. I use this masque twice a week on my face, neck and hands.
Shaklee spent over 5 million in clinical research on its Enfuselle skin care line and spends major dollars on controlled study groups to provide statistical results on its effectiveness. After 28 days of using the Infusing Mineral Masque men/women received an amazing 48% increase in skin firmness and 268% increase in skin smoothness. Finally, a company that puts money into bioresearch and clinical studies for us to get a product that actually does what it claims. Shaklee has documentation to back up all statistics! In my opinion, no other cosmetic company can compete with the Enfuselle delivery system - it’s breakthrough technological delivery system is revolutionary (I love science and biotechnology).
Last of all, even though the Enfuselle C+E Repair P.M. is advertised for use before bedtime and the A.M. Repair is advertised for use during the day, I used both twice a day. Then, Shaklee decided to have a controlled group of men and women using both. Unbelievable, but use of Enfuselle A.M. and P.M. Repair twice a day for 28 days resulted with 270% increase in skin firmness!
You know how you always hear that it is important to use a full skin care line? I always thought that was just a sales pitch. But wouldn’t you know it, Shaklee spent the money for a clinical study to prove it does make a difference. Clinical results confirmed 665% increase in skin firmness when using the complete Enfuselle skin care system for 28 days (70 men/women participated). I know these statistics seem unbelievable, but Shaklee can back up all claims with documentation. Ultimately, seeing is believing and the improvement of my skin has me sold.

I know how to keep my body (and yours) in tip-top shape from the neck down and I think that I deserve to have a face that matches my body. Enfuselle is helping me achieve that - now you can too! It’s just another Basic for a Better Body.
Best wishes until next week,
