 Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products


With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

 
Summer is here!  And that usually means switching up some of your skin care and makeup products.  Here are my picks for Top 5 Summer Must Haves
 

 


1. Sunscreen is an absolute must.  
 
We all know how important Sunscreen is year round, but especially in the summer when we tend to be exposed to the sun more often and for longer periods of time.  I love the Avon Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen Lotion!  It’s formulated for face and doesn’t leave my skin greasy or shiny like some sunscreen lotions can.  
 
It has an ultra lightweight, fast absorbing formula that doesn’t have the typical “sunscreen white” residue. It’s hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, allergy tested and suitable for dry, normal or oily skin.  
That light, non-greasy, fast absorbing formula also makes it the most pleasant sunscreen for body that I’ve ever used.  Bonus benefit, because I use it for face and body, that’s fewer products to carry on the go.  (I keep one in my tote bag for those unexpected outings or days when the morning gets a little hectic and I get out of the house without applying sunscreen)

2. After sun care is just as important 
 
Even when you are super careful about being sun safe, sunburns do sometimes happen.  When they do my family reaches for the Jeju 99% Aloe Soothing Gel. It cools the heat, soothes the itch and quickly returns our skin to it’s normal shade.
 
And summer doesn’t just mean sunburns.  Whether it’s the dry air indoors, or the elements outdoor drying out your skin, a little soothing can be just what you need.
 
The Jeju Aloe gel is non-sticky and absorbs nicely. It also have 9 other soothing herb extracts and can be used on face or body.  
 

 

3. No Bugs on Me!
 
The sun is not the only thing you want to avoid while enjoying nature during the summer…you also have to worry about bugs.
 
While I often hear about the many people who have sworn by our original Skin So Soft bath oil to repel bugs for as long as they can remember (it has been around 60 years) My family depends on Skin So Soft Bug Guard to keep away pests.
 
It’s proven, deet-free protection from a wide variety of biting insects including mosquitos, deer ticks, black flies, gnats and no-seeums. 
We use the Expedition during the day because it also has SPF28 and you can never have too much sun protection.  We like the aerosol spray because you can spray it at any angle and get all those hard to reach places.  
At night, or when we travel the Picaridin wipes are easy to pack and easy to use.  The wipes are individually wrapped so I always have one in my tote bag for those unexpected bug encounters. 
 

4. Muggy Days Call for Magix
 
Summer temps combined with high humidity, like we have here during monsoon season means one thing.  A permanent layer of sweat that makes your face shine in all the wrong ways. 
 
Those are the days when I reach for Magix Prime.  The original Magix product it’s still my favorite. It stops shine and smooths my skin, minimizing the look of pores and lines so my makeup goes on smoother and looks great all day.
 
It can be worn alone too just to softly blur any imperfections and provide SPF 20 protection.  Magix Prime is Vegan, free from sulfates, parabens and talc, and it’s non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested. 
 

 

5. Water-resistant for the Win
 
Water-resistant and Water-proof makeup is a must have when the heat cranks up the sweat factor, and when you want to enjoy a cooling dip in the pool, or the nearest body of water.
 
We have a great selection of water-resistant makeup but I did want to keep this list at 5 summer must haves so I’m just going to share my favorite.  Glimmershadow liquid eyeshadow.
 
I picked this one because we have the perfect shade for any look you want to create.  From bold shades with a bit of glitter, to neutral matte sateen shades for a natural look you can mix and match the 15 shades to create everything from a no-makeup makeup look to a classic smoky eye to a daring full glam look.  
It’s also so easy to use.  You can perfectly apply a single shade in under a minute, mix two shades for a customer shade or grab an applicator more a more precise, multi-shade look.  
It doesn’t crease, smudge or transfer and it give stay-all-day wear.  It’s free from sulfates, parabens and talc. 
With all the water-resistent and water-proof make up we use during the summer months, I will give an honorable mention to our waterproof eye and lip makeup remover, and 2 of our new cleansers that just melt all the makeup (and sunscreen) right off.  The 2 in 1 Exfoliating Balm and the Soothing Whipped Oil Cleanser.

What is Double Cleansing?

and why do I want to do it?

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

 

What is double cleansing?

Double cleansing is as simple as it sounds. It means to wash your face with 2 cleansers. Typically, the first is an oil-based cleanser, followed by a water-based one.

Double cleansing is going to be ideal for days when you are wearing makeup and/or sunscreen. The first cleanser clears the way for your regular cleanser to cleanse your skin instead of having to work through layers of product.

 

 Double Cleansing FAQ

Q. How do you double cleanse?

A. It’s recommended to start with an oil-based cleanser, something that will break down all types of makeup and lift it off skin. Follow with a water-based cream or gel cleanser based on your skin type.

For the first step I would recommend choosing one of these Avon cleansers:

 
LXNEW Clean 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleansing Balm
LXNEW Clean Soothing Whipped Oil Cleanser
 
For the second step I would recommend choosing one of these Avon cleansers:
 
belif aqua bomb jelly cleanser (for dry, normal or oily skin)
Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser (for dry, normal or oily skin)
Dr Belmeur Amino Clear Bubble Foaming Cleanser (for oily and acne prone skin)
LXNEW Clean Nourishing Cream Cleanser (for dry and combination skin)
LXNEW Clean Balancing Gel Cleanser (for normal, dry and combination skin) 
 
 

Q. Should I double cleanse twice a day?

A. Most double cleanse at night when makeup and sunscreen need to be removed from the day. Then in the morning use your regular cleanser or Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water depending on level of oil or impurities you want to remove. 

Q. Why is an oil-based cleanser beneficial?

A. Oil helps to dissolve all types of makeup and helps to remove sunscreen. They work differently than ingredients found in regular cleansers.

Saturate cotton pad and gently wipe face/eyes to remove makeup and impurities. 

No need to rinse!

 Ways that I use it in my personal skin care routine.

Like a toner after cleansing to remove all traces of cleanser, dirt and makeup I may have missed when rinsing. 

For a quick refresh in the mornings before applying my morning skincare. I do a full cleanse in the evenings so my face is not really dirty but there may be some residue from my nighttime skincare or impurities from my pillow or hair.

On nights where I get to bed-time and haven’t washed my face.  I don’t want to use a cleanser that has to be rinsed because it makes it harder to fall asleep but I still want to remove any makeup or dirt from the day and prep my skin for a night cream.

As the first step of a double cleanse to remove my makeup before using my foaming cleanser.

What Can I Do About Maskne?

 

What Can I Do About Maskne?

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

With mask wearing still a part of everyday life, skin irritation and blemishes have become a daily frustration for many. I have a few recommendations that could help alleviate some of the effects of long term mask wearing.

 

Maskne is caused by sweat and bacteria on the skin, moisture trapped inside the mask and the irritation from the cloth rubbing on the skin.

Thorough cleansing is key to minimizing the blemishes caused by mask wearing both as soon as possible after removing your mask for the day but also before putting on your mask to minimize the dirt and bacteria that is between your skin and mask

Dr Belmeur Amino Clear Bubble Foaming Cleanser has salicylic acid and amino-acid-based ingredients to help treat blemishes by unclogging pores and clearing away dead skin cells. If you want to avoid overuse of anti-acne ingredients, I recommend using this cleanser when you remove your mask at the end of the day and choosing an alternate cleanser for your morning cleanse.

My top picks for everyday cleansers are the belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser and the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser which both moisturize while cleansing.  When you just need a light refresh in the morning or the middle of the day, Anew Hydra Fusion Cleansing Micellar Water to gently lift dirt and oil with no need to rinse.

 

Next you’ll want to address any blemishes that you currently have.  Dr Belmeur Clarifying Spot Healing Patches are the perfect solution for healing blemishes and protecting them from further irritation while they heal. Made with calming tea tree leaf oil and a clear plaster band the patches protect skin from dirt and contaminants and stay in place under your mask. 
 
 You’ll also want to moisturize and soothe irritation.  Dr Belmeur Advanced Cica Recovery Cream will protect and heal the skin and is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It features the ingredient Cica which is known to relieve irritated skin, strengthen the skin barrier and gently moisturize.

 
For added moisture or to combat redness follow your Cica Recovery Cream with Green Goddess Facial Oil in the evening. Green Goddess Facial Oil soothes skin with 100 mg of CBD. This THC-free facial oil also contains hemp seed oil and turmeric, botanicals that help naturally reduce redness and irritation, and sugarcane-derived squalane oil, which replenishes skin’s moisture and leaves it feeling smooth.
 

Don’t forget the lips! On top of all of the effects of mask wearing on your skin it can also be dehydrating for your lips. My favorite picks for lips are the Moisture Thearapy Intensive Moisturizing Lip Treatment, made with hydraboost technology to instantly moisturize and soften lips, and Dew Kiss Lip Dew, a pretty pink balm that moisturizes your pout with a soft, dewy finish.

 
Need a bit more nourishing? Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Treatment, nourishes lips with vitamins C and E for a smooth finish and leaves them feeling healthy.

What Type of Hydration Does Your Skin Need?

 

6 Types of Dry Skin

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

Which type of dry skin do you have?

There are a lot of products and solutions for dry skin but often the right solution for you will depend on what type of dry skin you have. 

Which of these sounds familiar?

1. My skin just feels dry

Our best product lines for straight hydration are belif and Anew Hydra Fusion.  


The belif line combines a century old apothecary tradition with modern beauty science to deliver remarkable results to your skin.  

Anew Hydra Fusion combines Hyaluronic Acid, a super hydrator that holds more than 1,000 times its weight in water with Raspberry Antioxidant that helps defend skin from environmental stressors to
keep skin looking healthy and glowing

2. My skin is dry and I’m seeing the signs of aging

To add anti-aging benefits to your hydrating routine choose products from the Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate collection or our Mission Luxreve line.


Isa Knox Anew LX is our first holistic approach to anti-aging skin care with skin-nourishing ingredients. These serums and creams are infused with Paeonol, our unique extract from rare peonies and specially formulated to visibly diminish wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin texture, tone and clarity. 

Mission Luxreve harnesses the power of 86 naturally fermented medicinal plants to leave skin looking smoother, firmer and more radiant.

 3. My skin is very dry and I find any hydration doesn’t last.

Skin that doesn’t hold moisture could be experiencing damage to skin’s protective layer.  To moisturize and protect skin turn to Dr Belmeur. The key ingredient in the Dr Belmeur line is Cica which is known to relieve irritated skin, strengthen the skin barrier and gently moisturize.


 4. My skin is dry and I also experience sensitivity or irritation.

For sensitive skin you’ll want Physiogel. Physiogel‘s skin-friendly cleansers, creams and lotions, dermatologist recommended, are formulated with pure and gentle ingredients, are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and free from fragrances, preservatives and colorants.

 

For general sensitivities the Daily Moisture Therapy collection is ideal for cleansing and moisturizing skin while protecting skin’s moisture barrier without irritation.

If you are experiencing redness along with sensitivity you can add Green Goddess Facial Oil with your Physiogel moisturizer either by mixing a few drops into your lotion or cream before applying or after applying to seal in the lighter product. This vegan, fragrance free, dry oil is suitable for sensitive skin and reduces redness while helping to soothe irritation.

5. My skin is dry and itchy

Physiogel Calming Relief lotion and cream pack a triple punch of anti-dryness, anti-irritation and anti-itchiness. They feature Advanced BioMimic technology containing a skin-soothing complex
of essential-lipids, vitamin B3 and pro-Vitamin B5 to relieve
itchiness and redness associated with dryness and protects
against irritants that can aggravate dry, sensitive skin.

What can I do to minimize the effects of Winter on my skin?

Tips For Winter Skin

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

What can I do to minimize the effects of Winter on my skin?

Winter brings its own unique challenges for keeping skin smooth and soft, here are 5 tips for having your best skin all season long.

1. Shorten Your Shower

Hot water and steam dries out your skin. I know, you have a lot of accomplish in the shower from washing and conditioning hair to hair removal, not to mention the relaxing benefits of a nice hot shower. But shortening your shower by as little as 3-5 minutes, or even just turning down the temperature can minimize the drying effect on your skin.

Bonus Tip – Lock in moisture by applying lotion or bath oil immediately after your shower.  Keep some Skin So Soft Bath Oil or Body Lotion as close to your shower as possible for easy access. 


2. Check Your Cleanser – for face and for body

Switch to a more moisturizing cleanser, even if just for a few days a week.  For face try the belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser or Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser. For body go for a creamier body wash like the Skin So Soft Creamy Body Washes or a more gentle body wash like the Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Wash


 3. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating should be part of your regular routine year round, but in winter you may find you need to do it more often. If you have normal skin with no sensitivities then you can use choose manual exfoliation with the Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Microneedling Polisher, or a chemical exfoliator like the Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel. If you have sensitive skin it’s easy to over do it so your best choice is a mild washcloth soaked in warm water. 

 

4. Amp Up Your Moisturizer

Go for a heavier formula, switch from gel or lotion to a cream. For body Skin So Soft Shea Butter Body Butter is a wintertime must have and Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Cream moisturizes and soothes skin. For face choose the cream version on your favorite day lotion, or add 1-2 drops of a facial oil, like Green Goddess Facial Oil to your regular moisturizer.  For an extra boost of moisture, add on of our Hydra Fusion serums to your routine.


 

 5. Wear SPF and Protect

Of course you should wear SPF year round but it can be easy to skip when the days aren’t so sunny.  But just as many damaging rays get through the cloud cover as they do on a bright day, and if you are enjoying a day in the snow, snow reflects the sun, increasing your exposure.  Be sure to include a day cream with SPF or add our Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Lotion SPF 50

Bonus Tip – Don’t forget your lips! Nourish your lips with the Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment and for sun protection Beyond Color Lip Conditioner boosts moisture and has SPF 15

What’s the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

What’s the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

What’s the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

People with oily skin have to strike a delicate balance between moisturizing their skin and addressing the signs of aging while still maintaining a shine free complexion.  Here are a few products that will help with that balancing act. 

  Let’s start with the cleanser.  You want a cleanser that effectively removes the oil along with any dirt and makeup but doesn’t strip skin of vital moisture. 

 

My top recommendation for cleanser is the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser.  Rice Water is enriched with vitamins, minerals and ceramide to help skin feel moisturized and look radiant. 


If your oily skin is also acne prone, then I would recommend the Dr Belmeur Foaming Cleanser. This gentle foaming cleanser with amino acid based ingredients helps remove pore clogging impurities.


Another great cleansing option for any skin, can also do double duty as a toner.  Anew Hydra Fusion Micellar Water is a no rinse cleanser that is soap, oil and alcohol free.  Use alone on those times where you just need a refresher, for example in the mornings when you’ve thoroughly cleansed the night before.  Use as a toner after any cleanser to remove any lingering cleanser residue or last traces of makeup and dirt. 

 

Next you’ll need a good moisturizer.  A lot of people with oily skin think that they don’t need moisturizer.  In fact oil and water are different things and our skin needs both to look and feel healthy.

There is one moisturizer that I recommend to anyone with oily or even combination skin.  

belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is perfect for oily skin.  This ultra-lightweight, water-based gel-cream instantly cools and refreshes skin while providing intense hydration. The time-trusted herbal formula not only help minimize the appearance of pores it also helps prevent excess oil secretion and keep a balanced moisture level. What is just as nice about this formula is what it doesn’t have, it’s free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils and it is Dermatologist-tested.
 
 

If you are looking for anti-aging benefits we’ve got you covered there too.  The Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvenating Serum and Day Cream both pack a real age-defying punch without leaving skin oily and shiny. The Anew LX Ultimate collection harnesses the power of peonies to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skins tone, texture and clarity. 


 

If you like a multi-tasking product the Anew Vitamin C Illuminating Priming Moisturizer brightens and primes your skin while it moisturizes. Get a healthy, dewy glow while improving and extending makeup wear.

Of course you want to finish with an SPF 

Our best SPF product for oily skin is the Anew Vitale Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 25.  This air-light, oil-free lotion leaves skin feeling moisturized with a shine-free, matte finish. Bonus benefits include evening skin tone, minimizing the look or pores, and fights the signs of stress and fatigue.


All of these can be layered if you want to combine the benefits of multiple products while still maintaining that shine free finish.
