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.

Let’s make sure to take care of ourselves this New Year so we have the energy, strength and power to take care of others ……
Today I received my first “official order” (which was at 40% discount for new Avon representatives) which is Me! I didn’t go overboard, but I sure could have!! Makeup, skincare, nail polish…oh my!
The Foundation, Powder Highlighter and Foundation brush were one of the first products put to use along with the Eyeshadow primer (which is a game changer). Just opening the boxes and setting them in their makeup spots made me feel like a movie star! I do believe caring for yourself brings on a whole new state of being and happiness. A glowing complexion certainly wipes away the dull and dreary!
This is the first time I have purchased eyeshadow primer and it most definitely is what my old tired eyes needed. With age I have noticed red lines and crepiness on my eyelids. This primer set quickly to a soft finish and provided a flawless, creaseless appearance. I then applied eyeshadow and the look was smooth and lightweight.
One other item I purchased is called “the A Box” and each campaign (new brochure) there is an offering of great products for only $10 when you purchase $40 or more. The back cover of the brochure features each new A Box – what’s inside! This Avon Box contains three full-size makeup favorites and a try-it size skincare essential. Perfect deal and would make a wonderful gift for someone.
What a Wonderful Way to Start the New Year!!!

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.
I absolutely love this Rain Washed Gel Finish nail polish from Avon! The color is quite relaxing (if there is such a thing as relaxing nail polish) and the staying power is proving itself. Over a week after I applied it and it still looks Great! I have 2 layers of the polish and usually I add a Top Coat, but that is arriving next order.
Before I added the nail polish to my nails, I did use the Avon Cuticle Conditioner which I use twice a week especially now in the dry winter months.
