It is no surprise that the AIM hand cream has such restorative benefits. The
cream is filled with helpful nutrients to soothe and repair damaged skin and hydrate
and nourish hard-working hands.
One of the most unique nutrients found in the hand cream is the plant-based glyc-
erin. Most hand lotions contain glycerin, and it is a popular solution for moisturiza-
tion. What makes dailyLife™ hand cream stand apart is the type of glycerin used.
Most companies rely on an animal-based glycerin that can be loaded with synthet-
ics and additives that are unhealthy at best and harmful at worst. AIM’s product uses
plant-based glycerin for an all-natural effect. Obtaining the nutrient through a natural
process gives Members the best of both worlds: a healthy product through a healthy
process.
Glycerin is a popular lotion ingredient thanks to its moisturizing effect. It acts as a
humectant, meaning it attracts water to the skin, allowing the skin to remain soft and
hydrated. The nutrient can also help fight yeast and fungal infections that often lead to
skin conditions like eczema.
With vitamin E, sweet almond oil, and aloe leaf juice in addi-
tion to the glycerin, the hand cream is full of all the nutrients
you would need in a lotion. Its restorative benefits and daily
relief help it stand apart from other hand-care products.

2009 convention

T he AIM Convention in Lake Las Vegas will be a one-of-


a-kind experience at one of the most luxurious resorts in
the country. There will be plenty of ways to fill your day
with shopping, plenty of pools and water activities, and great
golf courses. One thing’s for sure, it’s got people talking!

Rick Coffman <rcoffman@aimintl.com>


Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort Rocks!

Hi there!
We’re on our way home from California and we decided to spend our night in Vegas at the
Loews. Steve and the kids thought I was crazy driving them so far away from the strip, but
once we reached the Loews in Henderson (remember, it’s 17 miles away from the strip), their
eyes got big and they couldn’t believe we were gonna stay in such an amazing resort.
I’m telling you – we made the right choice! The Members are going to love this place. There
is nothing “Vegas” about it! We made a great decision to bring the convention here. Members
will thoroughly enjoy this resort and leave feeling pampered like never before.
I’ve included a few pictures to refresh your memory of the hotel and grounds. With the resort
being surrounded by Reflections Bay Golf Course and, of course, Lake Las Vegas, the views
are breathtaking.
I know they’re going to be surprised by the fact that there isn’t a casino at this property. I
must admit, it sure is nice that you don’t hear the sounds of slot machines or pit bosses all
the time. That is certainly refreshing. Plus, if anyone does wish to drop in a few coins, there
is a casino down the road at MonteLago Village, and the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle
back and forth.
Dude – the pools at this place are phenomenal! And I don’t think I’ve ever been to a place
with as many lounge chairs and shade options. Sure makes it nice since it’s so warm outside.
We spent quite a bit of time out there yesterday.
Rick – I’m telling you, the beauty and comfort alone are worth the trip to this resort and I’m
excited to be able to plan an AIM event here for the 2009 convention.
Well – despite the fact that the kids (and Steve) want to stay a day or two longer, we’re
getting ready to head home so I can get back to work by Monday … don’t suppose you’d
consider letting me stay here for a couple more days of “research?” No – I didn’t figure you
would.
See ya Monday.
–Stacey

The 2009 AIM Convention is being held at the Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort in Henderson, Nevada.
We hope you’ll make the effort to join us July 15 – 19, 2009, for another unforgettable AIM Convention.
