… Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul … ~Samuel Ullman was an American businessman, poet, humanitarian.


What is an anti-aging skin care regimen?

8 out of 10 people who use facial skin care use 2 or 3 products consisting of a cleanser, moisturizer and eye treatment. This is called a skin care “regimen”. There are four basic products that everyone must use on a daily basis to keep their skin in peak condition — a cleaner, day and night moisturizer as well as a treatment especially for eye area. There are 5 different skin types: dry, oily, combination, sensitive and blemished.

Here are the 3 basic steps to a skin care regimens.

Step 1: Begin with a cleanser to clean out your pores, remove impurities and prepare skin for moisturizers and treatments. Cleanse to lathers away dirt, makeup and oil. Choose a cleaner for your correct skin type. For example, you don’t want to leave skin so dry it reacts by overproducing oil.

Step 2: For daytime protection, apply a day cream with SPF sunscreen. In the evening, use a night cream. Choose from the same category as your cleanser. Both will hydrate your skin and reduce signs of aging.

Why is it important to use BOTH a day and night cream? During the day, skin is exposed to environmental aggressors such as the sun, pollution, and UV rays from office lighting. Avon’s day creams are formulated with SPF and UVA/UVB protection to treat and protect skin while providing moisture. At night, facial skin is at its driest and most receptive to treatments and moisture. Therefore, Avon’s Night creams are designed to be richer than their Day cream counterparts.

Step 3: Treat your eye area with an eye treatment that complements your day and night creams and treat the vulnerable eye area with extra care. Start today for younger-looking skin!
