Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products

Top 5 Summer Must Have Beauty Products

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

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 has 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 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

Skin Sins to Avoid

Skin Sins

Although skin starts aging the moment you’re born, the signs generally don’t start appearing until you’re around 30. While you can’t stop skin from aging completely, you can keep it looking youthful longer. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

The Sun
Aging specifically caused by UV rays is called photoaging. Sun exposure dries skin, thickens the epidermis and slows down cell renewal, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone. Avoid the sun when possible and wear SPF daily.
 
Smoking
Smoking deprives skin of nutrients and oxygen, leaving it looking dull and lifeless. Smoking also causes harmful free radicals, which weaken collagen and elasticity, accelerating the aging process.

Stress and Lack of Sleep
Stress and lack of sleep can lead to dryness, sensitivity, acne, excess oil or lackluster skin.  Getting enough restorative sleep is vital to give your skin time to repair and rejuvenate.

Get Green Goddess Facial Oil to Soothe Stressed Out Skin

 

Pollution

Pollutants in the air coat skin with grime that can block pores. Free radicals can break down skin’s structure, leading to wrinkles, roughness, dehydration and loss of elasticity.

Shop Avon Neutralize Anti Pollution Collection to Protect Skin from Environmental Assault

 
 

Facial Expressions

The 15,000 facial expressions you make every day can damage skin. Frowning, smiling, squinting – the constant movement of facial muscles causes skin fibers to slacken. Over time these creases become wrinkles.

Shop Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Collection to smooth expression lines

Everyday Diet

Fast food, sugar and empty calories can wreck your skin. The more nutrient dense your diet is, the healthier your skin will be.  Eat foods rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. 

 

Sleep Positions

The way you sleep can increase the appearance of wrinkles. Side sleeping can cause lines on your chin and cheeks.  Sleeping face down can create lines on your forehead. Sleeping on your back is the best way to prevent lines.

Can’t help sleeping on your side or face down? Shop Isa Knox Anew LX Rejuvenating Collection to fight those lines and wrinkles

 
 
Going to Sleep with Makeup On
Our skin naturally renews and repairs at night, and not washing off the remains of your makeup at the end of the day can impede that process. It can also cause clogged pores and eye irritation.

Skin Care Myth and Truth

    Skin Care Myth and Truth

 

Dr Kim Nichols, Avon’s board-certified dermatologist, clears up common misconceptions and gives us the real story. As seen in Avon Campaign 3 2018 brochure.

Myth: If you see sagging skin, it’s too late to do anything about it

Truth: It’s never too late to firm the look of sagging skin, and you could do it at home. 

Anew Clinical ThermaFirm Face Lifting Cream has a special formula that visibly tightens skin. Women have reported seeing great results.

A customer favorite, online reviews have rated ThermaFirm an average of 4.2 out of 5 stars as of 2/1/18

I have many of my personal customers who always stock up when it is on sale so they never run out. 


Skin Care Resolutions

Myth: You don’t need to wear SPF on a cloudy day.
Truth: You need to protect your skin with SPF daily, rain or shine. Because UV rays are always present. Yes, they even penetrate clouds.
This customer favorite gets 4.6 out of 5 stars from our online reviewers as of 2/1/18

My husband uses this day lotion and he likes it because it is very lightweight and he sunburns easily so the high SPF is a must.

Myth: The same moisturizer can be used for your face and eyes.
Truth: The skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face, so it requires a special treatment for that delicate area.

Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro is so specialized that it has a separate gel and cream for the needs of the upper and lower lids. 

This longtime customer favorite gets 4.4 out of 5 stars from our online reviewers as of 2/1/18

I use this myself and I love it because I need a moisturizer for my upper eyelid but eye creams are too heavy and cause my eyes to water.  The upper eye gel is lightweight but moisturizes well. And the under-eye cream gives the extra moisture I need for my under-eye area 

Face Your Eye Care Concerns Head On

Myth: Scrubbing longer and harder makes exfoliation more effective
Truth: Scrubbing too long or too hard could irritate your skin.

For gentle exfoliation use the textured side of the Anew Clinical Retexturizing Peel pad for 30 seconds to a minute in gentle circular motions.

Online reviewers have given the Retexturizing Peel 4.7 out of 5 stars as of 2/1/18

I have sensitive skin so over-exfoliating can easily leave my skin red and raw, but the Retexturizing Peel twice a week gives me great results without the irritation. 

Skincare Game Changers


 

Myth: You’ll inherit your mom’s wrinkles.
Truth: Genes play a part, but so can you. You can minimize the look of wrinkles by avoiding too much sun, not smoking, and moisturizing daily.

For extra help, try Anew Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector. 9 out of 10 women showed improvement in the look of wrinkles. 

This longtime customer favorite gets 4.4 out of 5 stars from our online reviewers as of 2/1/18
