Shaklee Treat for the Feet Footcile

– Posted in: aging health skin women

Ladies,

Here is the script I used, with the links for the information I shared at the Footcile at the nines:

Q: How many people have “foot” issues?

Are your feet ever: sore, tired, hurt?

Q: How many people stop to give your feet a treat once a month or so?

Tonight we are going to do a simple, treat your feet Spa treatment, designed to do in the comfort of your own home. It’s just 3 little steps to give our feet a treat.

We will 1. soak, then #2 put on a clay masque, and #3  an herbal cream!

Did everyone pick up a little bag out of the basket?

Does everyone have their tub of water and towel?

Let’s get started, with the cute little bag first…

In this bag is your ingredients and directions for tonight!

  1. Find the little container that says #1 on it. This contains contents are clear…

Take the container and swish it around in your water.

This is 1/8 of a teaspoon of Enfuselle Bath Gel that we are putting into the water in our tubs. Use your toes to stir it up. Now soak your feet!  Both if they fit.

You all have a sample of the exfoliating cloth to use if you would like, to help remove dead skin.

 

Why this Shower Gel– because it’s a soap free, pH balanced cleanser which cleans, soothes and invigorates without drying skin – and you can shave with in the shower.  It’s enriched with rejuvenating sea minerals and botanicals to create a stress-relieving and skin reviving soak, shower or bath experience. It contains Vital Repair+ for anti-aging protection.

 

What is vital repair+? This complex formula includes: Vitamin E for antioxidant defense; creates silky softness, Vitamin C: protects against breakdown of skin-firming collagen, Vitamin A: increase skin’s natural moisture retention, Panthenol (provit B5): boosts skins’ elasticity, Grape seed extract: interrupts enzyme reactions that break down skin-firming collagen, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD): neutralizes free radicals that visibly age skin and Beta Glucan: soothes environmental irritation.

 

Did you know that your foot has 26 bones, 56 ligaments and 38 muscles?

Who can guess about how many steps we take a day, on average?

It’s between 7,000 to 10,000 steps each day! Think of shifting all your weight from one foot to the other foot, over 7,000 times a day!  Poor feet!

Next:

  1. Leave your feet a bit damp for the Clay Masque #2 – Damp dry your feet. Choose which foot will be receiving the rest of the treatment tonight.

The Enfuselle Infusing Mineral Masque uses purified clay to draw out surface impurities, leaving your skin looking and feeling smooth, conditioned and refreshed.  This clay masque contains the minerals manganese, copper and zinc to stimulate and invigorate. Clinically proven:  these minerals and natural clay unclog pores and removed impurities – it exfoliates and soothes the skin. It relieves tired feet and eases swollen feet and ankles.

While our feet are having the impurities drawn out, let’s talk about what goes into our body, since that shows up in our hair, skin, and hips.

You all know, that our soil has been depleted, and that the seeds used to grow our food have changed from back in the day, and that food is harvested, say from Chile, green, so it can be shipped – minus nutrients, plus our stress levels, and the toxins we are exposed to daily – well, our bodies need some help and support from us!

Here are two different ways to get many of the nutrients that we all need – [point]

 

Next:

 

  1. Dry off feet and apply to the chosen foot the Herbal Blend Multi-Purpose Cream #3: Apply a small amount to entire area of the foot and ankle. This cream soothes, softens and promotes healing of dry cracked feet or skin anywhere on the body that needs attention.  It gives hot, tired feet soothing relief.  Try on chapped hands, blisters, hangnails, athlete’s foot, small sores, psoriasis and as a foot deodorizer. And when it’s hot outside, and your feet are hot, keep the cream in the refrigerator for a very cooling and healing hot summer day treat.

 

What’s in conventional products?

On average, consumers use about 10 personal care products containing 126 ingredients per day. The government does not require health studies or pre-market testing for these products. The Cosmetics Ingredients Review (CIR), the industry’s self-policing safety panel, does not make up for FDA inaction. In 2007 EWG analysis found that over 30 years, the industry panel has reviewed the safety of just 13 percent of the 10,500 ingredients in personal care products

  • Endocrine disruptors – any substance that could alter your natural hormones
  • Description
    •                         Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. A wide range of substances, both natural and man-made, are thought to cause endocrine disruption, including pharmaceuticals, dioxin and dioxin-like compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls, DDT and other pesticides, and plasticizers such as bisphenol A. Endocrine disruptors may be found in many everyday products– including plastic bottles, metal food cans, detergents, flame retardants, food, toys, cosmetics, and pesticides. The NIEHS supports studies to determine whether exposure to endocrine disruptors may result in human health effects including lowered fertility and an increased incidence of endometriosis and some cancers. Research shows that endocrine disruptors may pose the greatest risk during prenatal and early postnatal development when organ and neural systems are forming.

 

  • Phthalates – plasticizing ingredients that have been linked to birth defects and low sperm count in men
  •  What negative health effects have phthalates been shown to have in laboratory animals?
    • Very few studies have examined the health effects of phthalates on humans. In lab animals, phthalate exposure has been found to be associated with numerous reproductive health and developmental problems such as:
      • Early onset of puberty.
      • Interfering with the male reproductive tract development.
      • Interfering with the natural functioning of the hormone system.
      • Causing reproductive and genital defects.
      • Lower testosterone levels in adolescent males.
      • Lower sperm count in adult males.

 

  • Phthalates are weak endocrine disruptors and androgen blocking chemicals. This means that when absorbed into the body phthalates can either mimic or block female hormones, or in males, suppress the hormones involved in male sexual development.
  • Phthalates cross the placenta.

 

  • Parabens – substances in personal care products like shampoos, soaps and underarm deodorants that mimic estrogen

Parabens

FDA has received a number of inquiries on the safety of parabens as used in cosmetics. The following information is intended to answer questions on this subject.

What are parabens?

Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetic products. Chemically, parabens are esters of p-hydroxybenzoic acid. The most common parabens used in cosmetic products are methylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben. Typically, more than one paraben is used in a product, and they are often used in combination with other types of preservatives to provide preservation against a broad range of microorganisms. The use of mixtures of parabens allows the use of lower levels while increasing preservative activity.

Why are preservatives used in cosmetics?

Preservatives may be used in cosmetics to protect them against microbial growth, both to protect consumers and to maintain product integrity.

What kinds of products contain parabens?

They are used in a wide variety of cosmetics, as well as foods and drugs. Cosmetics that may contain parabens include makeup, moisturizers, hair care products, and shaving products, among others. Most major brands of deodorants and antiperspirants do not currently contain parabens.

Cosmetics sold on a retail basis to consumers are required by law to declare ingredients on the label. This is important information for consumers who want to determine whether a product contains an ingredient they wish to avoid. Parabens are usually easy to identify by name, such as methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, or benzylparaben.

Don’t get caught with paraben on your face!
