5-DAY RESET™

START THE JOURNEY TO A NEW YOU WITH USANA® 5-DAY RESET™

Change isn’t easy. But don’t stress! Sometimes a small success is all it takes to jumpstart a big transformation. That’s the idea behind the USANA® 5-Day RESET™ kit. In only five days, you’ll be on your way to a healthier you.*

By eating balanced, low-glycemic foods, you can overcome your cravings and begin losing weight** without feeling hungry. RESET will help you get in the habit of eating healthier, exercising, and making smarter lifestyle choices.*

What’s Included in the 5-Day RESET Kit?

The 5-Day RESET kit comes in two varieties, so you can choose the Nutrimeal with the protein source that’s right for you. One contains a mixture of the French Vanilla (soy protein) and Dutch Chocolate (soy and whey protein). Or you can choose a non-soy, plant-based option that contains only packets of the mildly flavored Nutrimeal Free.

Each kit comes with the following:

The 5-Day RESET Program

The 5-Day RESET is a calorie-conscious program based on eating balanced, low-glycemic meals and whole-food snacks.

General guidelines:

  • Women should strive to consume approximately 1,200 calories per day
  • Men should strive to consume approximately 1,500 calories per day

Every day, you will simply replace three meals with a Nutrimeal shake, take your supplements, and eat whole-food snacks.

 

You may eat more snacks than are listed here. And you can mix fruit, vegetables, or unsweetened milk (dairy or plant-based) in your Nutrimeal shakes for a little variety. Just make sure to keep your calories near the recommended amount, or you may not experience the results you want. Also try to limit your fruit to three servings a day. Fruit juice is discouraged.

You will also want to turn off the TV and do some kind of low-impact exercise like walking for 20 to 30 minutes every day.

Sleeping for 7-9 hours is also recommended. This will help keep you from looking for more snacks to help bump up your energy if you’re sleep deprived. And if you are sleep deprived, you can consume black coffee or tea while on the 5-Day RESET.

NO WINTER BLUES WITH USANA® MAGNECAL D™

For those in the northern hemisphere, the winter season brings shorter days with dark mornings, darker evenings, and for many, symptoms of winter blues. With less time for sunrays, we typically spend more time indoors, finding refuge in the comfort of Netflix and family.

Winter blues strike many of us, especially in the later months of the season, and can mark changes in mood and energy. While feelings of “blah” are often experienced during dismal winter months, you don’t have to succumb to the atmosphere. Low energy levels could stem from deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals often depleted by the onslaught of a feeling of stress, poor nutritional choices, and the ever-waning hours of UV light.

Support Winter Health with Supplementation

A healthy lifestyle including a clean diet, consistent sleep habits, stress management, regular exercise, and self-care can go a long way to help manage your overall well-being. But if you can’t get healthy levels of essential vitamins and minerals naturally, especially during the dark months of winter, supplementation can be beneficial to bolster your health while you wait for the brighter, sun-loving months ahead.*

Minerals and Their Role in Winter Health

Minerals must be present in the body to achieve healthy cellular metabolism, the biochemical reactions that fuel the daily operations of a cell and maintain life.  They build the structure of the body from the bones outward—you quite literally need them to live.*

Calcium, a commonly mentioned macromineral, is the most abundant mineral in the body. It’s found mainly in your teeth and bones. About 99 percent of calcium exists in your skeletal system. In the past, calcium has been widely portrayed as the key nutrient for bone health. And while it’s integral to build and maintain a healthy skeletal structure, this elemental mineral is only one player in a team of minerals that account for healthy bones and work to execute vital physiological processes throughout the body.*

Magnesium is another abundant mineral, a heavy hitter on the cellular level, that aids in many of our internal physiological functions. It’s an essential component that triggers over 300 enzyme reactions in the body. Despite this important role, most people don’t get enough of it.*

One of magnesium’s most important operations in the body, other than to help maintain bone density and healthy insulin function, is energy production. Converting the foods you eat into a usable form of cellular energy requires adequate levels of this important mineral. The body needs a large amount of this essential macronutrient to carry out these numerous functions throughout the body. Supplementation is a great option to promote optimal health.*

Vitamin D’s Role to Resist the Shorter Day Gloom

Vitamins, as we all know, are an essential part of our diet. They are vital to create important chemical reactions on a cellular level. Perhaps you’ve heard vitamin D referred to as “the sunshine vitamin”. This happy vitamin is as crucial to our health as it is our psyche.*

Occurring naturally when your skin is exposed to the sun, vitamin D signals a reaction to a “preform” of the vitamin that exists in the skin’s epidermis. So, when you’re exposed to the sun’s powerful UVB rays, the body goes to work producing vitamin D3. *

Vitamin D has many benefits, including bone health, immunity support, mood support, maintains blood pressure already in the normal range, and supports muscle strength. It’s true your body can create vitamin D naturally, but for those who live far from the equator, we often fall below adequate levels in the winter months.*

USANA® MagneCal D™ for a Brighter Season

Stress and poor dietary choices, hurdles we all face throughout the holidays, often hinder our pursuit for a healthy lifestyle. Optimal sleep, clean nutrition, and less sun heightens our risk to become deficient in vitamins and nutrients necessary to help us push through seasonal slumps. For example, without the proper levels of magnesium and calcium, the body begins to borrow from the skeletal system­—a process called resorption. This natural process ensures you maintain the required level of these minerals to function. However, over time, mineral levels in the blood and in your bones can be negatively affected.*

USANA® MagneCal D™ combines an ideal ratio of 1:1 magnesium to calcium with the added boost of vitamin D. This smart combination provides the following benefits:

  • Strong, mineral-rich bones and teeth*
  • Healthy muscle and nerve function*
  • Energy metabolism*
  • Cardiovascular health*

SHOP HERE

Ideally, we’d like to rely solely on our diet to provide appropriate levels of essential vitamins and minerals. But the truth is, most of us don’t regularly consume adequate levels because of the poor nutritional choices we make. Magnesium, calcium, and vitamin D, in combination, make up an important foundation for health. And MagneCal D is one small part of whole-body health. If you don’t have a scientist in the house, read more about the benefits of MagneCal D to help balance your mood, increase your energy levels, and support cardiovascular and bone health.*

7 MYTHS ABOUT NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

Your best friend in the office swears the microwave is killing all the nutrients in her food.

The big guy at the gym with bulging biceps and a t-shirt that says, “Real Men Lift” insists by his diet consisting of protein, protein, and—you guessed it: more protein—is the only way to get that beach body you’ve been dreaming about.

When talking about health and wellness, there’s no shortage of inaccurate information—particularly when it comes to nutritional supplements.

But with so much coming at you from friends, colleagues, and Internet “experts,” how can you separate fact from fiction?

Let’s check out some widely accepted supplement myths, cut through the white noise, and then get to the facts. 

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #1

nutritional supplements: Myth 1

Believe it or not, dietary supplements are regulated and subject to detailed and comprehensive regulations to uphold safety and quality. It’s just not necessary to hold them to the same standard the government demands of pharmaceutical products designed specifically to treat diseases.

Once a dietary supplement is on the market, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has safety monitoring responsibilities. And, sure, there are limitations to the FDA’s regulations, but there are still companies who go above and beyond to make their consumers feel safe by obtaining third-party verification. ConsumerLab.com® is just one company some businesses turn to when they need to test their products.

There are even some companies who have their manufacturing facility registered by NSF International—an independent, nonprofit organization that helps protect public health by writing standards for food, water, air, and consumer goods; testing and certifying products based on those standards, inspecting for GMP, and providing ongoing monitoring.

On top of ConsumerLab.com verification and manufacturing in a registered NSF facility, there are nutritional supplement companies that use trusted United States Pharmacopeial testing methods to help ensure they adhere to higher standards than even the FDA requires.

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #2

nutritional supplements: Myth 2Although the FDA does not require an expiration date on dietary supplements, it does require that if one is printed on the label it must be supported by stability-testing data. Therefore, if you see an expiration date on nutritional supplements, that date is the latest possible date to which the company can guarantee ideal product quality and potency.

Keep in mind that supplements may not spoil like fresh produce, but they will gradually lose potency over time. While using those expired vitamins may not be dangerous, it’s definitely less beneficial. So get in the habit of taking your dietary supplements regularly as directed on the label to get the most value and benefit.

Technically, supplements that are stored properly in unopened bottles should last at least two years before any loss of potency occurs. Once they are opened, they should hold up for at least one year.

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #3

nutritional supplements: Myth 3Vitamin B2 (also known as riboflavin) is the reason you see that bright yellow or orange color in the toilet bowl.

Flavin comes from the word flavus, which means yellow. The body excretes the riboflavin that it doesn’t need at that time, and the amount can vary depending on your diet and lifestyle.

Just because you may get more riboflavin than you need at a given time,  it doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting enough of many other important nutrients on a daily basis. In fact, it’s rare for most people to eat a balanced diet—the fast-paced nature of today’s world makes it incredibly difficult.

Riboflavin Facts:

  1. Riboflavin can be found in some foods such as: milk, eggs, lean meats, nuts and leafy vegetables like kale.
  2. B vitamins help your body metabolize the proteins and fats in your diet and support the health of your skin, eyes, and liver.
  3. Riboflavin also plays an antioxidant role in the body, helping it to fight off cell damage caused by free radicals.

An Expert’s Perspective:

“Expensive urine is a bizarre argument because a $50 restaurant meal and a bottle of fine wine also lead to expensive urine, but no one seems to be complaining about those things. Numerous studies have shown, however, that vitamin supplements do increase peoples’ blood levels of those nutrients.”

—Jack Challem, veteran nutritional reporter

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #4

nutritional supplements: myth 4We know that children develop so quickly in the early stages of their lives, and due to this rapid physical and mental growth, supplementation is needed to assist with proper brain development and other health-related processes. EPA, DHA, and vitamin D are especially important for growing brains and bodies.

The same is true for the elderly. As our bodies age, medical issues, a decrease in appetite, and even changes to our digestive systems can lead to potential vitamin deficiencies. These often include: vitamin D, B12, and calcium.

But the young and old(er) aren’t the only people who need a little help. Even some of the world’s most elite athletes have been known to supplement because of their intense lifestyle. For instance, five-time WBO Welterweight champion Tim Bradley has been known to go on record saying how much he relies on nutritional supplements, especially during his intense training leading up to a fight.

“I’ve been taking USANA nutritional supplements since 2008, and I have captured five world championships since then. I have the best nutrition in the world and, because of that, I have an advantage when I step foot in the ring since I’m already ahead of the game.”

—Tim Bradley, five-time world champion

Fun fact:

More than half of all Americans take one or more dietary supplements daily or on occasion.

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #5

nutritional supplements: myth 5The quality of nutritional supplements can totally vary from brand to brand, so you should definitely compare nutritional labels to know exactly what you’re getting. Don’t let vague labels like “all natural” persuade you.

Do your research and find out what you need. You know your nutritional needs aren’t the same as your friends’ or coworkers’, so why are you buying into the latest “one-size-fits-all” fad you stumbled across while browsing in the grocery store?

Did you know there are health assessments out there designed specifically to help you discover what nutrients your body may be lacking? They even pinpoint habits that might be creating a negative impact on your health and provide feedback on what you can do to turn those habits into positive lifestyle choices.

Those assessments are great, but there’s really nothing more valuable than the insight you can get from a trusted physician. If you’re really curious about what’s going on with your body, pay a visit to your doctor and get some blood work done.

Ditch the Filler

Scared that what you’re getting is all filler with no real nutritional value? Fortunately, there are dietary supplement companies who take what they do very seriously and take extra care to make sure their supplements are made with the highest-quality ingredients.

Here’s what you should expect from your manufacturer.

  • Find a company that carries a potency guarantee, ensuring that what is defined on the label is actually in the product.

Purity—Free from impurities or contamination

Identity—Ingredients in the product are verifiably the ingredients on the label

Composition—Contains exactly what it is suppose to contain in exactly the right proportions

Strength—Offers the proper concentration of ingredients

Quality—Meets all specified exceptions

  • Research companies who model their product development after Good Manufacturing Practices.
  • Research companies who operate in an FDA-registered facility, following the FDA’s highest possible standard for manufacturing.

Do your research! There are companies out there that actually care about your health and won’t take you for granted.

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #6

nutritional supplements: myth 6Just because you’re “eating well” doesn’t mean you’re getting all your servings of each of the five major food groups (the ones found on the USDA food pyramid). That would be really hard!

Here’s a quick rundown of what you would need to eat every day to meet their dietary guidelines for a well-balanced diet:

  1. Meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs, and nuts group: 2-3 servings
  2. Milk, yogurt, and cheese group: 2-3 servings
  3. Fruit group: 2-4 servings
  4. Vegetable group: 3-5 servings
  5. Bread, cereal, rice, and pasta group: 6-11 servings

I don’t know about you, but that is a lot of food to be eating in one day. So I think it’s fair to say that even if you’re eating a well balanced diet, you’re most likely not getting the daily-allotted amount of vitamins and minerals. That’s where supplements come in.

An Expert’s Perspective:

“Those who believe that you can get all the nourishment, including vitamins and minerals, you need to sustain optimal health throughout life from food alone can be very smug. They have the equivalent of an orthodox religious belief—‘food is everything.’ They don’t have to concern themselves with the fact that the nutritional value of foods their patient eats may be greatly inferior to the listed nutritional values given in food tables.”

—William Kaufman, MD

Did you know?

There’s new technology being used in vitamins that nourishes your body with the right balance of nutrients to create the ideal environment for optimal cellular health. The technology has the power to tap into your cells’ ability to preserve and regenerate. It does this by cleaning up the harmful byproduct of energy creation happening deep inside your cells, giving you healthier, longer-living cells. Pretty cool, right? Why wouldn’t you want to use supplements after hearing about that technology?

SUPPLEMENT MYTH #7

nutritional supplements: myth 7Sure, this statement might be true if your kitchen countertop currently looks like the vitamin aisle of your local supermarket. And that can easily happen because there are hundreds of options to choose from. You want a calcium supplement, vitamin D, fish oil, melatonin, vitamin C, glucose, B12—the list goes on and on.

What are you suppose to do—carry all those bottles around all day, every day? Talk about inconvenient.

But did you know there’s a company with a solution?

USANA Health Sciences has developed what is called the True Health Assessment. This revolutionary online tool helps you discover your personal vitamin needs. And once this is determined, they can split your recommended vitamins into convenient AM and PM packs.

Visit their site to create your own personalized MyHealthPak and choose which supplements you want in your 30-day supply. They slap your name on the box and BAM…you’re all set.

Doesn’t get much more convenient than that.

nutritional supplements: infographic

Let’s Recap

1. The best companies follow a strict set of guidelines for purity and quality.

2. Always pay attention to the expiration date to ensure you’re getting the most out of your nutritional supplements.

3. That neon glow in the toilet bowl is a lot more than just expensive pee—that’s proper nutrition at work.

4. Everyone can benefit from supplementation, regardless of age. Chat with your doctor to find out what you need when it comes to nutrition.

5. Some nutritional supplements are in a league of their own when it comes to quality. Do your research.

6. A well-balanced diet doesn’t always equal optimal nutrition.

7. While juggling a dozen vitamin bottles throughout the day is hardly anyone’s idea of convenience, there are still ways to make effective supplementation simple and stress free.

We highly encourage you to share this with your social networks so we can spread the nutritional truth as far as possible!

NEW YEAR, NEW BEGINNING, NEW YOU

Team Up to RESET Your Life

RESET for a Better You

Each new year brings endless possibilities.

It’s a chance to start over, make positive changes, and become a better you. And if you’re looking for some inspiration to lose weight and look your best in 2019, here are some helpful tips to get you moving.

Most new year’s weight-loss resolutions are forgotten before January ends. Too often we bite off more than we can chew. We make crazy diet and workout goals that are far too aggressive, get frustrated, and quit. The key to your resolution success is to be consistent. Make small changes you can maintain. Things like portion control, drinking more water, tracking your exercise, and working out with friends can have big results providing you stick with it.

Action-Oriented Goals, Not Open-Ended Ones

Sure, you want to look better in 2019, but open-ended goals usually fall short. Instead of saying to yourself, “I want to lose weight,” try to think in terms of action-oriented, definable goals. For example, plan to walk 30 minutes three times a week. Instead of going strict vegan or jumping into a Paleo diet, try adding a green vegetable to every meal. Realistic goals equal real results.

Go Take a Walk

Speaking of walking 30 minutes a day, did you know a half-hour walk can burn up to 300 calories? That might not sound like much, but over the course of a year, it can make a big difference. Walking is a low-impact exercise, meaning it’s easier on your joints. The benefits of physical activity depend on three elements: intensity, duration, and frequency. Because walking is less intensive than running, you’ll have to walk for longer periods to get the same results.

Anytime you get your heart rate up, you’re doing your body a favor. Exercise makes the heart beat faster, and over time, strengthens the heart. Cardiovascular exercise improves blood circulation and can help with your mood. Find a good podcast or audiobook or invite a friend to take a walk around the block after work.

You Can’t Outrun Your Fork

There are approximately 3,500 calories in a pound. That means to lose or gain a pound, you have to burn or consume an additional 3,500 calories. Over the holidays, most of us probably overindulged a bit. Don’t worry. Slips don’t become falls in your overall health journey when you choose to get back on track.

Something I did last year that had a big impact, but felt very manageable, was to eliminate one bad eating habit each month throughout the year. For January, I gave up all soda. In February, I stopped eating donuts and bagels. In March, I made sure to eat at least two servings of vegetables for lunch and dinner. Pretty soon, I started to see results, and because it was a gradual replacement of bad foods with good ones, I found I had more energy and felt better.

Keep a food journal as you make your new year changes. Write down all of your meals and snacks. Be honest. When you examine your diet, you’ll see areas where you can improve and be able to celebrate the smart decisions you’ve made.

Love Your Workout

There’s nothing worse than signing up for a gym membership at the beginning of the year only to quit going after a couple of weeks. Not only is it a waste of money, it can be pretty disheartening. Also, sometimes those big box gyms can be pretty intimidating when you’re starting a new workout program. Instead of committing to a long-term gym membership, think about the activities you are interested in and find out if they have introductory classes. Lots of times, the first class is free.

Sign up for a boxing lesson or try out a yoga class. Maybe you’ve always wanted to try Zumba or join a cycling group. It doesn’t matter what you do to get moving, just make sure it’s an exercise program that’s interesting and something you like. It’s already hard to get motivated to work out; don’t make it worse by doing something you hate.

Drink Water

It seems simple enough, but getting enough water is important to a successful workout program. Not only do you need water to stay hydrated, but drinking water can also help lubricate your joints, help with digestion, regulate body temperature, and aid in other essential body functions.  Best of all, water has zero calories.

Make sure to drink enough water before and after your workouts. Your body needs water to help energize muscles and support your kidneys. Fluids also help your body flush and remove waste.

Drink water during each meal. Keep a bottle of water with you in your car, at your desk, or in your bag. And add to your hydration by eating more water-filled fruits and vegetables. About 20 percent of our fluid intake comes from food.

Try a 5-Day RESET™ Kit

USANA Scam? 15 Reasons Why USANA is a Legitimate Opportunity

 

You’re skeptical. Good! With all the schemes in today’s world, you shouldn’t be anything less. Maybe you’ve heard of sites entitling themselves “USANA scam”, and you’re looking to validate the organization.

We can clear up the confusion pretty quickly, but we invite you to be curious and skeptical. Be sure to do your research and come to an educated conclusion. We hope that this article will serve as one additional resource to your research. We intend to show you as transparently as we can why USANA is not a scam, but in fact a legitimate opportunity.

Before we get going, we would like to echo the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and preface that you need to be aware and vigilant to avoid scams, and to do your research. The best way to really know is to watch for updates on scam alerts by the FTC or your local news and to look into the company closely. We couldn’t agree more. That’s why we can’t be clear enough on defining who we are at USANA, what we do, and why.

So, let’s walk through 15 reasons why USANA is a legitimate opportunity, and why the term USANA scam has no value.

1. Fantastic Products

USANA’s business model defines us as a direct sales company, because of one really important reason—we have products to sell and people are buying them because they want our products and not as a requirement to participate. (See the section entitled “What Is a Pyramid Scheme and What is Legitimate Marketing?” in previous link.) And what great products they are!

Our products are so great, that we have been recognized and named for being the Top Rated Direct Selling Brand by ConsumerLab.com for multiple years. And quite frankly, we’re pretty proud of the accomplishment. It just so happens that last year (2016) we broke the glass ceiling and reached over $1 billion (US) in sales, and we don’t plan on slowing down.

And yet, we take our business plan another step further. While scams clearly offer no actual benefit to you, many of our legally operating competitors meet the bare minimum requirement on truth in marketing and sales. USANA offers 100 percent returns on products to Associates for a whole year, which is far more than what the law requires of us. The truth? Our consumers don’t need to return our products because they get what they bought and love the results.

There’s a reason we’re so confident and so clear in our resolve: our fantastic products started with an ambitious vision.

Dr. Myron Wentz wanted to make the world a healthier and happier place. He discovered the value of antioxidants to counter the negative effects of free radicals in the human body, and has worked ever since to create a reality where people can live their happiest lives being their healthiest selves. As a result, in 1992, USANA was born.

So, why direct selling in the first place? Why not sell the products in stores where people can easily find them? We use direct selling with the intention to help people get what they really want: freedom. Freedom to do what they want and when they want. The opportunity to build a USANA business isn’t for everyone on this planet, and that’s ok. It doesn’t need to be. We don’t profess to have a quick “get rich” plan, or to have the “only way” to earn a living. But we do claim the ability to give people another option to build wealth and establish financial stability, especially when they already love our products and are seeing great results. It’s an opportunity for those looking to build their own business, but may be wary of doing it all alone.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO TAKE SUPPLEMENTS AND VITAMINS?

best time of day to take supplements

Taking supplements is an important way to meet nutrient needs and fill nutrition gaps that may be present in your diet. USANA® Nutritional supplements provide directions for use on every label. Some product labels recommend that you take the tablets in divided doses (example: two tablets in the morning and two in the evening) or spread throughout the day.

Taking vitamins and minerals in divided daily doses (with a meal or at least some type of food) is preferred. It helps with proper dissolution and absorption (the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K, and E need a little fat for absorption), and it helps you maintain a good blood profile of important nutrients to support your health.

A morning meal (breakfast) is a great time to take your first dose of CellSentials™Body Rox™Usanimals™, CellSentials Prenatal or the HealthPak™. Since many of us eat breakfast at home, taking your vitamins and minerals at that time is a convenient way to start your day off right. In addition, the B vitamins in your CellSentials will help to convert food to cellular energy for a strong way to start the day. Your evening meal is a good time to take your second dose of CellSentials, Body Rox, or Usanimals.

If lunch is a more convenient time for you to take your supplements, then consume your supplements with lunch. The most important point is that you consume your vitamins and minerals with food, to help with proper dissolution and absorption. Only you can decide the best time to take supplements.

Calcium and magnesium supplements can be taken throughout the day, in divided doses, and even right before bed. The form of calcium you use determines if you should take it with a meal, snack, or on an empty stomach. Calcium carbonate requires the presence of food for better absorption. Calcium citrate can be taken with or without food, as it does not require food for absorption. USANA MagneCal D™ is best taken with a meal or a light snack.

Supplemental calcium is best in smaller, more frequent doses to support absorption.

Digestion supplements like USANA Digestive Enzyme should be taken right before you eat to help you digest food more efficiently.

Celavive®: 5 Steps to Beautiful Skin

Let’s face it, not all skincare lines are created equal and neither is our skin. My skin has gone through plenty of harsh cleansers, swampy-smelling masks, and layer upon layer of concealing makeup. I even used to carry around tissues to blot the oil off my skin throughout the day.

But now, I have a skin secret I can’t keep quiet about. I’ve said goodbye to worrying about an oil-ridden complexion after just one month of personalizing my skincare routine with Celavive® product.

Celavive Product Line

I’m a sharer, so I want to let you in on my skin success story in hopes you can share in the limelight. I’ll walk you through how to use each product and what makes each product unique.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about your skin’s reaction to a new skincare product, do a spot test first. Apply just a bit of the product to your neck or cheek and see if it causes any kind of irritation.

Celavive: Go Beyond What You See

Here’s what sets the Celavive skincare line apart from the rest: it’s formulated with USANA’s InCelligence Technology® and/or Olivol™, which target your individual beauty needs. These products are specifically designed for your skin type: dry/sensitive or combination/oily. The entire line of Celavive skincare products has been dermatologically tested and is paraben free, so you can feel confident about what you’re using on your face. Like with all of USANA’s products, there’s scientific research at the foundation of these creams, gels, and cleansers that focuses on nourishing our skin in unique ways.

Celavive Face Wash

Check out USANA’s dermatologist, Dr. Jennifer Lee taking a closer look at the science behind what makes Celavive skincare so unique and powerful.

Step by Step

 1. Bare-Faced Beauty

How To: On a cotton round, apply three or four drops of Conditioning Makeup Remover and gently wipe off your makeup. This product doesn’t leave an oily residue or irritate your eyes. Not only does the makeup remover dissolve long-wear and waterproof makeup, it also moisturizes and pre-cleanses your complexion.

2. Cleanse

Wash away the day and defeat impurities at the same time. Whether I’m washing off day-old makeup or desperately willing myself to wake up after hitting the snooze button, I’ve come to love washing my face. Using this cleanser helps me focus on me for a few moments and gets me back in touch with taking care of myself.

The Creamy Foam Cleanser is perfect for my combination, oily skin, and my mom loves using the Gentle Milk Cleanser that rehydrates her dry, sensitive skin. Both these cleansers have been clinically shown to provide up to 24 hours of rich hydration to your skin after just one application.

Lather Up, Love

Celavive Love

How To: Dampen your face with warm water and apply just a pea-size amount of Creamy Foam Cleanser, or two pumps of Gentle Milk Cleanser, on your fingertips. Gently rub the cleanser in a circular motion over your face. Be kind to those cheekbones. No need to use any elbow grease, these products are cleaning powerhouses. Rinse your face clean and lightly pat dry with a soft washcloth.

3.  Tone

Before Celavive, I always associated toner with a harsh chemical smell and a slight burning sensation. None of that describes Perfecting Toner. This toner brings my skin to perfect peace by balancing the pH levels and gently purifying my complexion. It’s just pore-fect.

Ready, Sweep, Tone

Celavive product

How To: On a cotton round, apply three or four drops and sweep it over your face. This product is pretty concentrated, so no need to completely soak your cotton pad. Don’t rinse this off—your skin will absorb it quickly. Thanks to the Perfecting Toner, your skin is more receptive for the next Celavive products you’ll use.

Pro Tip: If you’re worried about how your skin will react to new products, try switching out one product at a time. If you’re looking for products to cleanse your skin, I’d say a cleanser, toner, and moisturizer are a must. If you’re looking to specifically target visible signs of skin aging, then make sure you try the Vitalizing Serum, Hydrating Eye Essence, and Protective Night Cream or Gel.

4. Enhance

Here’s the fun part of the Celavive Regimen that’s hyper-focused on enhancing your inner beauty. Treat your skin to some rejuvenation. Both the Vitalizing Serum and Hydrating Eye Essence feature the Celavive ingredient complex that strengthens the skin matrix and creates dramatically younger-looking skin.

Vitalize Your Good Side

How To: Apply two or three pumps of the Vitalizing Serum evenly across your face and neck in an upward and outward movement. I love the sweet, earthy smell of this serum. Also, I usually wait a few seconds for it to really soak into my skin before moving on.

Celavive Vitalizing Serum

Eye Spy

How to: This molded, metal applicator makes application a breeze. Massage a bit of the Hydrating Eye Essence around your eyes and pat your fingertips across the area to help it soak in. I split it up between my eyes, laugh lines, and that bit between my eyebrows that crinkles when I squint. Cover all the bases.

5. Hydrate

If there’s one skin tip that’s been driven into my head since middle school, it’s the importance of moisturizer. I live in the dry, desert air of Utah, so I’m used to the harsh winters leaving my complexion flaky, dull, and uncomfortable. Olivol™ (the star of these moisturizers) channels botanicals like olive, apple, and watermelon fruit extracts to provide rich hydration— apple-y it liberally. It’s the final step in your regimen before you head out the door to conquer the day.

Seize the Day

How To: Apply one or two pumps of Protective Day Cream or a pearl-sized amount of Protective Day Lotion across your forehead, cheeks, nose, chin, and neck. Smooth it out across your face in an upward and outward motion. Now, your skin is hydrated and ready to take on the day.

Pro Tip: Hydration is great for your overall health. If you’re drinking enough water throughout the day, your body will feel beautified and your skin will glow. After all, our skin is our first line of defense. I’ve made it a habit to keep the water bottle at my desk full at all times.

Hey, Sleepy Head

Celavive Hey, Sleepy HeadHow To: Much like you did with your moisturizer this morning, apply a pearl-sized amount of Protective Night Cream or Gel across your entire face and smooth it in and upward and outward motion.  The natural botanicals and powerful peptides moisturize and revitalize your skin while you score some beauty rest.

Celavive Confidence

Celavive makes it easy for me to skip out on foundation every day now. Let’s make this the year of being confident in our own skin. Upgrade your makeup bag with some Celavive products and show off that gorgeous face.
