We all know the damage the sun can do to our skin and in recent days, it really hit home with me. SPF is added to sun tanning lotion and we ALL make sure to load up on this protection if we plan on being outdoors for summer fun, winter sledding, etc. But that sun can get us when we least expect it …. driving in the car, sitting on the patio late afternoon or indirectly through the window as we sit at the kitchen table. We rarely think to apply lotion or cream with SPF to the delicate skin on our face or neck if our daily plans center on inside work.
My husband will be having surgery soon to remove a patch of skin cancer near one of his eyes, my dad had skin cancer removed from his face a few years back and my future son-in-law had a patch recently removed!!!
I see a pattern here! (and I don’t like it)
I realized that, probably for the most part, Men don’t apply SPF moisturizer as a part of their daily routine!
Women have a makeup routine in the morning that requires cleansing, moisturizing and applying makeup before heading out the door each day. Avon has a fantastic line of skincare products and the Day Lotion/Creams all have SPF (sun protection factor). I have been using Anew Ultimate Day Cream SPF 25 each morning and recently I did purchase Anew Skinvincible Day Lotion SPF 50 for my husband.
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!!
