How to Achieve and Maintain Healthy & Youthful Looking Skin

The Avon Diva

Healthy Skin Is A Necessity For A Youthful Appearance

Important throw-back Thursday information…always relevant.

Many think in order to achieve healthy skin, you need to spend lots of cash at the expensive spas for designer products or at department store counters where the objective is to sell, sell, sell no matter what’s best for the consumer. Others believe that if  the lastest “House Wife of whichever show is popular now,” is not promoting it, it’s not good skin care. And the most dangerous myth is the one that some cater to, which is if your skin is bad, you can simply cover it up with make-up. That one is my true pet peeve and oh so wrong. If you get nothing else from this article, get this…all skin has occasional issues; however the resolution to this issue is never, ever, ever, never the answer! Unless you have a medical issue, the key to good skin is clean and healthy skin.

Good skin is cleaned at least twice daily. Good skin is exfoliated and moisturized. Good skin is skin that is not smothered with pore clogging makeup 24 hours a day. Now do not get me wrong…I like the glamour side of things as well as the next diva, but I have been around long enough to realize and know for a fact, that heavy make-up does not improve the overall health of one’s skin.

Following you will find my suggestions to a good, no not good, but effective skincare regime. The links are paid links, but the opinions and the truth I speak are from experience and not due to the links.

Avon is the best place to shop for innovative skin care products for all ages and they remain reasonably priced. There are several skin care lines available and they are age appropriate for each stage of your life. From Clear Skin for those acne prone years to the Anew Ultimate line for women of a more mature age, Avon has it all. So stop jumping from product to product looking for the next miracle elixir. Trust me there isn’t one. What really works to promote good skincare is consistency and an age appropriate skin care regime that you follow daily. That’s it. It’s that simple.

  • Cleans at least twice a day
    • morning and before bed
    • never, ever sleep with makeup on your skin
  • Use an Astringent
    • use this extra step to ensure all traces of makeup and dirt and grime are removed from the skin
    • It does not need to be harsh
  • Moisturize
    • find an age appropriate moisturizer and use it each time you cleanse your skin
  • Define what your skin truly needs
    • use a skin tightener if your skin sags
    • use an eye cream if you are noticing wrinkles around your eyes
    • use an overall skin fortifier to repair and prevent more damage
  • Once a week – treat yourself to a spa day at home and give yourself a facial
    • I usually put my facial on while I am cleaning and leave it for at least 30 minutes to deep clean and shrink my pores.  But if you have the time, it really feels great to put the facial product on and simply relax and if you can squeeze in a bubble bath…even better

That’s it. Four basic daily steps and one extra weekly step and you are on your way to a more youthful appearance. If you’re younger (20’s and below), great, you are preventing skin problems in the future. It is never too early to begin a good skin regime.

And please if you remember nothing else from this post, please remember this, because it costs more does not mean it works better. Read the labels before you spin your hard-earned money. Many of the very expensive products have the same ingredients as their less expensive competitors. Also, many of the expensive and so called exclusive products spend the extra they charge you to become more exclusive which allows them to charge you more. It is a vicious cycle. Get off that merry-go-round and speak with an Avon Representative to determine the most appropriate skin care regime for your age and skin type and be on your way to glowing, youthful, and healthy skin. Contact me for any questions or place your order on my site 24/7.

Now is also the time to stock your vanity with colors for the Fall season. We are introducing all of the new colors and they are spectacularly priced. Avon realizes that women and men want to look and smell good and feel good even when money is tight.  New colors and Fall skin care are all available at my eStore so get your new fall colors now and be ahead of the game!  We are currently promoting bold eyelashes and bold colors for your eyes as well as your nails and lips.  And don’t forget to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize all fall and winter long.

Take care of your skin today for a youthful appearance tomorrow.

Until Next Time…Here’s to healthy skin
