What’s the Best Hand Cream?

Dry Hand Helpers

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold

One of the questions I’m asked a lot is
 “What is the best hand cream?”
Our hands do a lot for us but they can take a beating and it can be tough to keep them soft and smooth. 

By far my best selling hand creams, and the ones I use myself, are Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Hand Cream and Avon Care Silicone Glove Protective Hand Cream

They are both rich creams that absorb quickly. 
 

Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Hand Cream

• Reduces redness
• Moisturizes skin for 72 hours with Hydraboost Technology
• Restorative formula
• Hypoallergenic
• Dermatologist tested 
• Fragrance-free

Silicone Glove Protective Hand Cream 

• Moisturizes skin and reduces dryness 
• Alleviates redness and prevents further skin irritation   
• Dermatologist tested  
• Pthalate-free

 Sometimes you find your hands are so dry and cracked that regular hand cream just isn’t enough.  I have several customers who use the Foot Works Cracked Heel Relief Cream when their hands get like this.

Because it’s intended for feet, not hands, it is a very thick cream that doesn’t absorb as well as a hand cream. It also has a numbing ingredient so they tend to use the cracked heel cream at night, with soft cotton gloves if possible. I’ve just used it on my feet, but I can attest to how well it works on my dry, cracked heels.
 

Bonus Tip

When you apply your hand cream, squeeze a little from the tube onto the BACK of one hand.  Rub the backs of your hands to distribute most of the cream across the backs of hands and fingers.  Then use fronts of hands to massage in the cream.  This keeps the majority of the cream on the back of your hands where you need it most, and helps prevent that slick/slippery feel you can get on the fingertips and palms of your hands from too much moisturizer. 


When you have dry hands, you’ll also want to take a look at how you’re washing your hands.  Using a gentle, moisturizing hand soap like Fruits and Passion Cucina Hand Soaps can prevent some of the irritation and dryness caused by frequent hand washing. 
 
These wonderfully scented hand soaps not only gently cleanse and moisturize your hands, they remove even the strongest of food odors (think, garlic!) and they are biodegradable and eco-friendly.

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 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
