What Type of Hydration Does Your Skin Need?

 

6 Types of Dry Skin

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold







Which type of dry skin do you have?

There are a lot of products and solutions for dry skin but often the right solution for you will depend on what type of dry skin you have. 

Which of these sounds familiar?

1. My skin just feels dry

Our best product lines for straight hydration are belif and Anew Hydra Fusion.  


The belif line combines a century old apothecary tradition with modern beauty science to deliver remarkable results to your skin.  

Anew Hydra Fusion combines Hyaluronic Acid, a super hydrator that holds more than 1,000 times its weight in water with Raspberry Antioxidant that helps defend skin from environmental stressors to
keep skin looking healthy and glowing

2. My skin is dry and I'm seeing the signs of aging

To add anti-aging benefits to your hydrating routine choose products from the Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate collection or our Mission Luxreve line.


Isa Knox Anew LX is our first holistic approach to anti-aging skin care with skin-nourishing ingredients. These serums and creams are infused with Paeonol, our unique extract from rare peonies and specially formulated to visibly diminish wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin texture, tone and clarity. 

Mission Luxreve harnesses the power of 86 naturally fermented medicinal plants to leave skin looking smoother, firmer and more radiant.

 3. My skin is very dry and I find any hydration doesn't last.

Skin that doesn't hold moisture could be experiencing damage to skin's protective layer.  To moisturize and protect skin turn to Dr Belmeur. The key ingredient in the Dr Belmeur line is Cica which is known to relieve irritated skin, strengthen the skin barrier and gently moisturize.


 4. My skin is dry and I also experience sensitivity or irritation.

For sensitive skin you'll want Physiogel. Physiogel's skin-friendly cleansers, creams and lotions, dermatologist recommended, are formulated with pure and gentle ingredients, are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and free from fragrances, preservatives and colorants.

 

For general sensitivities the Daily Moisture Therapy collection is ideal for cleansing and moisturizing skin while protecting skin's moisture barrier without irritation.

If you are experiencing redness along with sensitivity you can add Green Goddess Facial Oil with your Physiogel moisturizer either by mixing a few drops into your lotion or cream before applying or after applying to seal in the lighter product. This vegan, fragrance free, dry oil is suitable for sensitive skin and reduces redness while helping to soothe irritation.

5. My skin is dry and itchy

Physiogel Calming Relief lotion and cream pack a triple punch of anti-dryness, anti-irritation and anti-itchiness. They feature Advanced BioMimic technology containing a skin-soothing complex
of essential-lipids, vitamin B3 and pro-Vitamin B5 to relieve
itchiness and redness associated with dryness and protects
against irritants that can aggravate dry, sensitive skin.

What can I do to minimize the effects of Winter on my skin?

Tips For Winter Skin

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold



What can I do to minimize the effects of Winter on my skin?

Winter brings its own unique challenges for keeping skin smooth and soft, here are 5 tips for having your best skin all season long.

1. Shorten Your Shower

Hot water and steam dries out your skin. I know, you have a lot of accomplish in the shower from washing and conditioning hair to hair removal, not to mention the relaxing benefits of a nice hot shower. But shortening your shower by as little as 3-5 minutes, or even just turning down the temperature can minimize the drying effect on your skin.

Bonus Tip - Lock in moisture by applying lotion or bath oil immediately after your shower.  Keep some Skin So Soft Bath Oil or Body Lotion as close to your shower as possible for easy access. 


2. Check Your Cleanser - for face and for body

Switch to a more moisturizing cleanser, even if just for a few days a week.  For face try the belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser or Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser. For body go for a creamier body wash like the Skin So Soft Creamy Body Washes or a more gentle body wash like the Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Wash


 3. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating should be part of your regular routine year round, but in winter you may find you need to do it more often. If you have normal skin with no sensitivities then you can use choose manual exfoliation with the Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Microneedling Polisher, or a chemical exfoliator like the Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel. If you have sensitive skin it's easy to over do it so your best choice is a mild washcloth soaked in warm water. 

 

4. Amp Up Your Moisturizer

Go for a heavier formula, switch from gel or lotion to a cream. For body Skin So Soft Shea Butter Body Butter is a wintertime must have and Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Cream moisturizes and soothes skin. For face choose the cream version on your favorite day lotion, or add 1-2 drops of a facial oil, like Green Goddess Facial Oil to your regular moisturizer.  For an extra boost of moisture, add on of our Hydra Fusion serums to your routine.


 

 5. Wear SPF and Protect

Of course you should wear SPF year round but it can be easy to skip when the days aren't so sunny.  But just as many damaging rays get through the cloud cover as they do on a bright day, and if you are enjoying a day in the snow, snow reflects the sun, increasing your exposure.  Be sure to include a day cream with SPF or add our Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Lotion SPF 50

Bonus Tip - Don't forget your lips! Nourish your lips with the Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment and for sun protection Beyond Color Lip Conditioner boosts moisture and has SPF 15

What's the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

What's the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold



What's the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

People with oily skin have to strike a delicate balance between moisturizing their skin and addressing the signs of aging while still maintaining a shine free complexion.  Here are a few products that will help with that balancing act. 

  Let's start with the cleanser.  You want a cleanser that effectively removes the oil along with any dirt and makeup but doesn't strip skin of vital moisture. 

 

My top recommendation for cleanser is the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser.  Rice Water is enriched with vitamins, minerals and ceramide to help skin feel moisturized and look radiant. 


If your oily skin is also acne prone, then I would recommend the Dr Belmeur Foaming Cleanser. This gentle foaming cleanser with amino acid based ingredients helps remove pore clogging impurities.


Another great cleansing option for any skin, can also do double duty as a toner.  Anew Hydra Fusion Micellar Water is a no rinse cleanser that is soap, oil and alcohol free.  Use alone on those times where you just need a refresher, for example in the mornings when you've thoroughly cleansed the night before.  Use as a toner after any cleanser to remove any lingering cleanser residue or last traces of makeup and dirt. 
 

Next you'll need a good moisturizer.  A lot of people with oily skin think that they don't need moisturizer.  In fact oil and water are different things and our skin needs both to look and feel healthy.


There is one moisturizer that I recommend to anyone with oily or even combination skin.  
belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is perfect for oily skin.  This ultra-lightweight, water-based gel-cream instantly cools and refreshes skin while providing intense hydration. The time-trusted herbal formula not only help minimize the appearance of pores it also helps prevent excess oil secretion and keep a balanced moisture level. What is just as nice about this formula is what it doesn't have, it's free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils and it is Dermatologist-tested.
 
 

If you are looking for anti-aging benefits we've got you covered there too.  The Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvenating Serum and Day Cream both pack a real age-defying punch without leaving skin oily and shiny. The Anew LX Ultimate collection harnesses the power of peonies to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skins tone, texture and clarity. 

 

If you like a multi-tasking product the Anew Vitamin C Illuminating Priming Moisturizer brightens and primes your skin while it moisturizes. Get a healthy, dewy glow while improving and extending makeup wear.

Of course you want to finish with an SPF 


Our best SPF product for oily skin is the Anew Vitale Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 25.  This air-light, oil-free lotion leaves skin feeling moisturized with a shine-free, matte finish. Bonus benefits include evening skin tone, minimizing the look or pores, and fights the signs of stress and fatigue.

All of these can be layered if you want to combine the benefits of multiple products while still maintaining that shine free finish.

 

Let me be your personal shopper

Life is often busy so sometimes it can be hard to find time to sift through all the wonderful products we have to offer. I am always happy to do the shopping for you.  Let me know what you are looking for and whether it's a favorite product you want to reorder or you are looking to try something new I will find all the options for you and help you to choose which one will be the best fit for you.

My Top 3 Product Introductions for 2020

 My Top 3 Product Introductions for 2020

With Your Avon Lady Chris Arnold



Over 50 new products appeared for the first time in the Avon brochure in 2020.  That's not including all the limited edition fashion and jewelry that graced our pages this year. From additions to our skincare, makeup and fragrance to whole new product lines like oral care, an expanded hair care line and products to care for the home we've been working hard to bring you the best right to your door.


I personally have quite a few new favorite products, including one of the 3 I'm sharing today. I took a look at what has been the most popular among my customers and picked out the top 3 products introduced in 2020


#1 Jeju Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel

This one actually surprised me when it was first introduced. It almost immediately shot to the top of the list of my top selling products and I was not alone.  Avon sold out of the initial supply in the first few weeks and we had a to wait a couple of weeks to get more in stock. 
 
A natural skin soother, Aloe is a great thing to have in your skin care tool box. It's one of the few moisturizers that's good for face or body it's suited to all skin types, including sensitive skin. Formulated with 99% aloe vera extract and 9 other soothing herbs (chamomile, spearmint, lemon balm, rosemary, lavender, bergamot, basil, sage and oregano) this gel instantly hydrates and soothes skin while restoring its moisture level. 
 
Feedback from my customers and the reviews online highlight some of the many uses for this non-sticky, fast absorbing gel. Of course Aloe is great to soothe a sunburn, it also soothes other types of irritation, including irritation from increased hand washing and mask wearing.  Some folks are even using it as a shave gel, or to soothe legs after shaving. 


#2 belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb and Moisturizing Bomb

One of the bonuses to being part of the LG H&H family is that we can now offer many of their top selling products, including the #1 selling product at Sephora stores. This is my personal favorite of all the new products we added this year.  For years I have dealt with the challenge of trying to keep my combination skin from turning into an oil slick by midday. belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb has been the answer to my prayers. 

And I'm not the only one who has discovered why this was such a popular product.  The Aqua Bomb and the Moisturizing Bomb have become favorites of many of my customers and both have near 5 star ratings on Avon's online store. belif combines time-trusted apothecary herbal traditions with modern Korean skin science and delivers powerful hydration. Aqua Bomb is an ultra-lightweight gel cream that helps balance skins oil production while it moisturizes.  Moisturizing Bomb has a cushiony whipped texture that envelops skin in intense, long lasting moisture

#3 Root Touch Up


I will admit that the craziness that has been 2020 could have contributed to the popularity of this last product.  With people having to skip their regular hair appointments there have been a lot of roots making an appearance this year.  Root Touch Up was the answer to getting those roots back out of sight. 


Our Root Touch-Up powder formula covers your hairline, graying roots and even bare areas for a fuller hair look—instantly. With scalp and hair nourishing ingredients, this easy to use, long wearing powder has prevented many bad hair days in 2020.


 
Honorable Mention
 
It's not often that I have a fragrance sell as well as this one did so I figured it deserved a mention. It's even become a signature scent for a couple of customers who wear it enough they've already had to reorder. It is a beautiful light, fresh, clean scent, with pink currant, peony and sheer musk.
