My Shaklee Before and After Pictures

Hi y’all !
Assalamu’alaikum. :)

Hope everyone is doing a-ok. :)
I have deliberated for quite some time to share these pictures with all of you because the before pictures are a bit embarrassing.
But I thought that since there has been improvement and it’s obviously a positive thing, I definitely should share them !

First and foremost, I would like to state that I have never had flawless skin and even now, it is not completely flawless.
A little history – I started breaking out in high school all the way through university. I have used benzoyl peroxide gel, adapalene gel and topical antibiotics for my acne.
In 2008, the doctor I saw in HKL when I went for my pre-employment medical check-up prescribed a 4-months course of oral antibiotics for me.
I did not even complain about my complexion, so that’s how bad my acne was ! Sob sob.

I know how it feels to not want to go out and the let whole world see how ugly my skin was. I had very low self-esteem and I was always self conscious and sort of depressed because how my complexion looked like. :(

Alhamdulillah, the oral antibiotics did help to clear up my skin but I still had acne scars, both dark and pitted ones which are more prominent on the right side of my face.
That’s why I have gotten used to showing the left side of my face when I pose for photos. Haha.

Presenting, the transformation of the right side of my face !

shaklee before and after

As you can see, that was how my right cheek looked like back in 2006 – red, pimply and scarring was obvious.
In 2012, I had less pimples but my scars were still very much obvious. I just started consuming Shaklee products that year.
And the most recent photo in 2015 was taken a couple of days ago. Can you see the difference ?
Alhamdulillah ! :)

The 2006 photo was taken using my Canon digital camera, the 2012 one using my Samsung Galaxy S2 (and you can still see the scars so clearly !) and the 2015 photo was taken with my Note 3.

Here’s another photo:
shaklee before and after

How I looked in 2008 compared to how I look now. Can you see spots, scars and red inflamed skin in the 2008 photo – even on my left cheek ?

Alhamdulillah, Shaklee products (only with Allah’s grace of course !) has helped improve my skin tremendously. I do occasionally get zits these days but they are definitely not as bad as before.

I have also managed to lose some weight and maintain it with the help of Shaklee products and some exercise.
I have been battling with weight issues for as long as I can remember. I think I was at my heaviest during my diploma days – my weight once reached 60 kgs. My weight dropped to about 46 -48 kgs after a bad breakup but I gained all of it back after that. Haha.

I was 52 kgs when I got married and 54 kgs before I got pregnant.

Of course, I ballooned during and after pregnancy ! I gained a whopping 16kgs which means I was 70 kgs before I delivered Khayla.
After giving birth, my weight plateaued at 57 -58kgs and I struggled to lose that excess 4-5 kgs.

shaklee before and after

I have managed to bring my weight down to about 52- 53 kgs now. Look how chubby I was 2 years ago !

Alhamdulillah, I am so grateful Allah has led me to Shaklee and I love how it has helped improve my life. :)

Of course, you can contact me if you need free personal advice and consultation (unless you’ve already bought you Shaklee supplements from someone else, then you should seek advice from that person, hehe).

Fun fact: Mr Sunshine got to know me back in late 2007 when I was all pimply and chubby, haha. I love you Sunshine ! :*

Ok bye !

Nutrients for the Skin

SETD

Happy Monday ya’ll !

Who doesn’t want beautiful skin, right ?

Nutrition and great skin are very much related and some of the nutrients that play an important role in your complexion are vitamins. I personally have seen a marked improvement in my skin since I started supplementing religiously. Many have commented on how my skin looks way better now !

Here are some of the essential vitamins for great skin and how to incorporate them into your diet.

Vitamin A
You might be lacking in Vitamin A if your skin has been feeling scaly and dry. Vitamin A is also good for individuals who are suffering from acne. Vitamin A helps the skin rebuild tissues and is also a great anti-aging nutrient. So if you wish to keep lines, wrinkles, dull skin and other skin aging symptoms at bay then Vitamin A is for you ! Good sources of Vitamin A include eggs, leafy greens, milk, carrots, pumpkins, liver and more.
Vitamin E
Vitamin E is perhaps the most well-known vitamin that is essential for healthy skin. Like I have elaborated in one of my previous posts, Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that helps fight free radicals in your body. Vitamin E is an important anti-aging nutrient. Appearance of age spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and lines are reduced by applying Vitamin-E rich products. Vitamin E can also be found in foods like olives, sunflower seeds, peanuts, almonds, wheat germ and leafy greens.

Vitamin C 
Vitamin C is also an effective antioxidant. It also stimulates the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the protein responsible for making your skin supple. Most fruits are good sources of Vitamin C so try to make fruits a staple addition to your everyday diet. Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, tomato, brussel sprouts and cucumber are also good sources of this vitamin.

Vitamin B Complex
B Vitamins should also be added to your diet if you wish to achieve healthy skin. Vitamin B1, for instance, boosts circulation in the body and gives your skin a certain glow. If you’re a woman taking birth control pills then you are at risk of Vitamin B1 deficiency. Egg yolks, nuts and raisins are great sources of Vitamin B1. Niacin of Vitamin B3 helps your skin receive plenty of oxygen, which prevents development of acne among other benefits. Niacin-rich foods include tomatoes, broccoli and carrots.

Now that we know which vitamins are good for us, here’s my suggestions on which supplements can help give you a radiant glowing and more supple skin !
The famous trio, Shaklee’s B Complex, Vita E Complex & Sustained Release Vita C is an awesome combination for those of you looking to improve your skin.

This trio is a favourite among ladies and men alike !
In addition to these three, you can also get your dose of Vitamin A from Shaklee’s Carotomax which is not only good for you skin, but also can benefit your eyes and immune system !

I hope I have helped shed some light on how your skin can look and feel better, if you have any other question, feel free to drop me a message. :)

Vitamin E and its benefits on the skin

url
Vitamin E, a substance found naturally in many foods.
Through its antioxidant properties, vitamin E can help fight the signs of aging and protect from sun damage.

 

Free Radicals and Your Skin

Free radicals are produced when our skin is exposed to outside forces, such as UV rays from the sun. These free radicals cause problems as they start stealing electrons from the healthy cells in your skin. This can cause permanent damage to the tissue and contribute to signs of aging !
Nampak tua sebelum usia..oh noooo !

How Vitamin E Affects the Skin

Fret not, vitamin E to the rescue !
Vitamin E can destroy free radicals. This can  prevent some of the damage free radicals cause. When the body absorbs vitamin E in food, the antioxidants go to work on all cells, including skin cells.

Consuming vitamin E through food isn’t the only way to benefit.

For direct effect on skin cells, we can apply it topically. As an oil, vitamin E can also help improve skin hydration. Some evidence points to the use of vitamin E to speed cellular regeneration on the skin, which can help the healing process for scars and acne.
