Word On Summer Skincare

Word On Summer Skincare

Word On Summer Skincare

Hello August!  Hello birthday month!  Which means another year older, another year wiser.  As I’ve become older and wiser I’ve learned what you need to do to adjust your skincare for the summer.

Anew Skinvincible

Anew Skinvincible

In the summer I switch to Avon Anew Skinvincible day and night cream.  It contains a higher level of SPF and the night deep recovery cream battles my summer sun exposure and bad air days common in Nor Cal.

Avon Anew Skinvincible Day Cream

Avon Anew Skinvincible Day and Night Cream

Word On Avon Anew Skinvincible Day Cream:

You love the sun, but not the damage it can do to your skin! Anew Skinvincible Multi-Shield Lotion contains Broad Spectrum SPF50 to take the worry away. Protect yourself against the visible effects of environmental skin damage while healing from past injury. Smart Repair Technology restores your youthful look by minimizing the look of environmental skin damage. This day lotion has been formulated with our most advanced antioxidant complex and our highest SPF available: broad spectrum SPF 50. Comes in a 1 fl. oz. bottle.

BENEFITS
• Broad spectrum SPF 50 and high antioxidant formula protects skin from sun damage
• Smart Repair Technology heals skin from environmental damage
• Won’t irritate sensitive skin, moisturizes for 24 hours
• Targets dehydrated skin and wrinkles
• Fragrance-free and oil-free
• Contains retinol
• Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
• Allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested

Avon Anew Skinvincible Day and Night Creme

Avon Anew Skinvincible Day and Night Cream

Word On Avon Anew Skinvincible Deep Recovery Creme:

Anew Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream is here and ready to heal your damaged skin. Add it to your anti aging routine and see its restorative effects for yourself! Smart Repair Technology means this night cream was designed to counter the effects of aging by fixing damage accumulated throughout the years from the environment. This night cream is ideal for dry skin as it contains moisturizing properties and protects from further damage. Make fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots disappear! Comes in a 1 oz container and is fragrance-free making it perfect for sensitive skin.

BENEFITS
• Reduces the appearance of fine lines and sunspots
• Smart Repair Technology fixes damaged skin and protects from further harm
• Suitable for sensitive skin
• Fragrance-free and oil-free
• Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
• Allergy-tested and dermatologist-tested

Summer Skincare Switchup

Summer Skincare Switch Up

Word Of Alicia:  

Not only does this dynamic duo provide me extra SPF protection and healing at night it also moisturizes my skin extremely well without being too thick and tacky for the summer months.  It absorbs so quickly. It also brightens and clarifies.  This is a good duo for any age or skin type for a summer skincare switch up.

Anew Clean: 

To prep my skin for Skinvincible I’ve been using my Anew Clean.  I just replaced the brush heads on my Anew Clean Cleansing Brush that I use with the Anew Clean Illuminating Rich Cleansing Foam.  You know it’s good when a pea sized amount gets off all that summer waterproof makeup and cleans your brush so none of that mascara is left on it!

Haik Reflections Skin Softener and Anew Clean Cleanser

Haik Reflections Skin Softener and Anew Clean Cleanser

Word On Body:

I still use Skin So Soft Triple Phase Oil everyday immediately after I shower, while I’m still wet.  Once I pat dry, I use a body lotion/skin softer vs a thick body cream like I use most of the year.  A lighter version is better when hot temps have me sweating.  Lately I’ve been using the Avon Skin Softener in Haiku Reflections.  This is thicker than a lotion but lighter than a cream, right in the middle, perfect for summer, moisturizing and scented in Haiku Reflections my new summer scent!

Word Of Alicia:

Wearing Lip Paint i Fancy

These liquid lipsticks are awesome!  The formula is so saturated so you’ll get lipstick like color with the ease of a liquid.  I really like how the matte formula doesn’t look drying like most of the other brands I’ve tried.  These have a doe foot applicator which applies it really well and even.  I really was impressed with the applicator.  For summer I’m definitely loving the vinyl because it’s more summery with the finish and the color I picked, but both are excellent!  Next on my list is Cozy.

I have the hookup on Lucy Hale’s beauty brave cover look! Lucy, mark.’s brand ambassador, is looking stunning on the current mag cover, launching the new color collection revamp from mark. (see my review here)  So stunning I needed to recreate and share the details!

Lucy is not only excited to show us the new color collection from mark., but you can get a good look at her cover look.  Her look flips the script on a smoky eye with dramatic sweeps of wine shadow and a lavender highlight on the brow bones.  Use a mix of liners and finish with a nude lip!
