The years have definitely slipped by quickly and quietly!
In our younger years and even our middle years, taking care of our skin and our makeup routine was second nature and although we knew to apply SPF and moisturizer AND cleanse our skin before going to bed … it was all pretty easy.
As we coast day to day, one day we stop and Look closely at our face in the mirror. Oh My!!! Check out all those wrinkles and the drooping lips and my skin is SO dry! We think to ourselves “when did this happen?” I actually think I need to do something different here! What? How? and Help!!!
When I joined Avon, that was and still is My top priority. I know I will never be rid of my wrinkles (a lot of hard work went into getting them), they are my beauty marks that remind me to slow down a bit and enjoy life more fully.
No denying the fact that I could use some help with my dry skin and just some extra attention to my makeup routine since my skin sure ain’t what it used to be! As I embarked on using the Anew Ultimate trial sizes that were included with my Starter Kit, I honestly noticed a brighter and moisturized complexion. I will wholeheartedly be studying Avon skincare products and makeup as well as sources on the internet to further my knowledge on my own self care as I age.
Me: I Love to garden … I Love to take outstanding photos … I Love to eat healthy, but it’s hard!
So think about this —- these things or activities that I Love make me happy and put me and my mood in a good place. I can talk for hours (literally) about them and never lose my excitement. **They are Who I Am**
So here’s the thing —- I can use these “triggers” or “Loves” to grow my Avon business.
Here’s how —- Start a blog and get excited about sharing your gardening skills and advice, your excellent photo shoot sessions or just a great picture each day. Or how about some Good recipes that you actually make and eat on a regular basis. Be genuine and focus on sharing these things.
Don’t spend time looking at what others are trying…
In my previous post, I made the announcement that my New Avon Starter Kit had arrived and included these trial size Anew Ultimate products. Now Avon has a whole array of skincare products targeting different skin types and age groups and it can be a bit confusing which product to use.
Since I was an Avon rep some 20 years ago, I have somewhat of an understanding and this Anew Ultimate actually was just introduced about that time (if I remember correctly). It was the top of the line for aging skin and I didn’t need it at that time, BUT time moves on and here I am …. 20 years later and in need of it! **I am in my 50’s** There is also an Anew Platinum added to the line, as well as, various other products for sun damage, retinol treatments, etc. I will be studying all and learning the usage and benefits.
Quick tip – I did mark the top of each jar with N for Night cream and D for Day cream, since each time I was using the product I found myself picking up and reading “both” because I always grabbed the wrong one!! This makes it a whole lot easier.
It has been about a week using the products and I have to say I notice a difference in the area above my upper lip/below my nose (what is that area of the face called?) I don’t see all the up/down wrinkles glaring at me so much. Overall, my skin is definitely moisturized and smooth.
I was going to add a link to the Anew Ultimate Regimen Set which is on sale for $55, but after a quick check, it is out of stock. I did click Notify me when back in stock, so I will know and post. I actually have a Facebook Group here where I share contests, sales, tutorials. Please join me there and you will stay up-to-date on Avon!! Make sure to bookmark my store for your future purchases … Thanks so much!!
