Sun protection is just as important during the winter here in Rocky Point as it is during the warmer months. It might feel cold outside, but that doesn’t have anything to do with the strength of the sun’s ultraviolet, or UV, rays. Although people tend to associate heat with sunburn, that’s a myth. No matter what the temperature is  outside, you can get sunburn. Here are a few preventive measures you can take to maintain a healthy, hydrated glow all year round.

  1. Keep skin clear with cleanser. Our Clearskin Pore Penetrating Gel Cleanser it is oil free, with pore firming technology, makes pores visibly clearer. Effectively unclogs and deep cleans pores for a more refined look. Leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.


  1. Look for a lip-gloss with SPF. Shiny lip-gloss intensifies the sun’s effect on your lips. When you’re outside, swipe on a gloss with SPF 15, like Satin Satisfaction Lip Color with Moisturizing Glycerin.



  1. Protect your skin daily. New studies show that it only takes 15 minutes for the sun to damage skin cells, no matter your skin tone. To be safe apply a broad-spectrum SPF 25, combined with a moisturizer. Choose one of Avon’s ANEW Target Specific Regimens to maintain that cushiony bounce of youth.


  1. Make bronzer your BFF. Bronzer brings out the gorgeous warm tones in your skin, and covers any imperfections. Darker skin tones should try a brownish color, like Marbleized Bronzer in Bronze Highlight, if you’re fair, go for a pinkish brown, like Marbleized Bronzer in Bronzed Peach.



  1. Moisture after you wash your hands. Although washing your hands cleans them, it also dries them out. Keep a bottle of moisturizer like Skin-So-Soft Signature Silk Replenishing Hand Cream by the skin and put it on your hands immediately after you wash


  1. Choose a creamy wash. Gel body washes might strip moisture from the skin, but a cream formula like Skin-So-Soft Replenishing Creamy Body Wash creates a lipid barrier that prevents moisture loss.



  1. Make shaving your go-to hair removal method. Shaving is cheap, easy and safe. The razor exfoliates, which helps with texture and wrinkles. Use Skin-So-Soft, Soft and Smooth Shaving Gel to make shaving easy and experience softer skin immediately.


  1. Give a tonner a try. Old-school toners where full of alcohol, which caused skin to break out instead of clearing it up. The latest toners like Clearskin Daily Astringent contain nourishing extracts, vitamins and antioxidants. Apply moisturizer directly after the tonner to seal in hydration.
  2. Press, don’t rub make up off. Saturate a cotton pad with make-up remover like AVON Eye Make- Up Remover and hold it over each eye for 10 seconds. This gives the product a chance to work and stops you from rubbing your make up off harshly which can cause wrinkles and under eye sagging. Use this technique with nail polish too!
  3. We’re all aware of the risks we face by exposing our skin to the sun’s rays. While skin cancer isn’t a concern for your hair, the sun can damage your hair with prolonged exposure. UVA and UVB rays have the power to damage the hair from the cuticle to the inner structure of the hair. Maintain moisture with Damage Repair 3D Rescue that will help keep the damage by the sun at a minimum and repair 3 years of damage in just 3 days.
