The Importance of Skin Care Routine

What is the importance of having a good skin care routine?

The importance of a good skin care routine is hugely under acknowledged.

Obviously our skin is our biggest organ, keeping our insides in and most dirt, germs and bacteria out. If we take care of our skin, it helps take care of us.

Skin ages with us, and particularly on our face, can show our age if we don’t care for it too. Pollution in the air, UVA and UVB from the sun can take its toll without additional stress factors too. Even the weather can have an affect on our skin. Taking care of your skin now with acne and similar but can help for future too, having less deep lines and wrinkles.

What happens with your skin?

Your skin sheds skin cells every single day. If you just take care of the surface layer then that effort is soon wasted but if you invest in your skin, helping the layers underneath it will help for the future. If you have a bad skin care routine it can show straightaway however if you develop a good routine now then you could be benefiting from it still in 30 years time.

Genes and genetics play a huge part in the quality of your skin – we all have that friend who has flawless skin all the with no make up or effort. I had quite bad skin when I was younger, acne in my teens and twenties, now I have a good skin care routine people often comment on how great my skin looks.

Oily skin, dry skin, combination skin – these different factors can make it difficult to find the right product for you but if you’re like me, when you find something that works, you stick with it.

Welcome the world of Anew from Avon.

Welcome to Anew

A selection of Anew products

Anew from Avon is popular range but it so much more than that. Not only is the range iconic but it is pioneering and revolutionary for the industry too.

The goal for Anew has always been to provide the latest skin care products and technology at accessible prices.

There is absolutely no reason why the very best should only be available to those who have the ability to buy into the premium end of the skincare market.

Anew – Avon

With this aim in mind through out the process, Avon have on many occasions, created brand new products for the beauty industry, available at a realistic cost for the general public.

Avon’s very first Anew product was ANEW Perfecting Complex for Face, which was first released in 1992. It was the first product with AHA technology available to the mass market, providing anti-ageing technology for every woman.

From this point Avon’s Anew has just flourished with day creams, night creams, serums and oils. Many of the products in the range have won awards, some of them multiple awards too. With basic creams for skin care for each age group through to targeting products for fine lines, deeper wrinkles, uneven skin tone plus many more. There is also an entire Anew make up range also with some amazing products.

Duel Eye Lift System – the knife vs the cream?

Eyes – window to the soul?

Eye Lift – the knife vs the cream? Eyes have captured the imaginations of many people. Such as artists working on such intricate detailing and many philosophers describing them as the window to the soul. Our lips say many words but our eyes often tell more. We spend so much time and money on our eyes, particularly women. There is eyebrow shaping, lash tinting, eye shadows, mascaras, eyeliners, creams, lotions and potions, plus much more. Even way back in Ancient Egypt, eye make up was a huge focus for the rich and powerful but eyes also had some important representation for the gods Horus and Ra.

Within our society, eyes are clearly important to us with people wanting to make them look as fabulous as possible. People use make up all the way through to cosmetic surgery to help improve their eyes but this can be costly. Many people worry about bags under their eyes or even hooding/sagging of the eyelid – I know this is something I do worry about. The average cost of Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty – cosmetic surgery to … improve hooded/drooping eyelids or eye bags) is between £2000-£6000*.

Any type of surgery can run its risks and even if it does all go to plan, you have the recovery time and the generally feeling under the weather after. The surgery, recovery time and care soon adds up, making having cosmetic surgery a big decision but what if there was an alternative?

Anew Duel Eye Lift System

In 2006, Avon added the Anew Clinical Lift & Firm Eye Cream (Duel Eye Lift System) to their revolutionary Anew range. The Anew range was established in 1992 with innovative skincare technology at a price many more people could afford. The Anew Clinical Lift & Firm Eye Cream was different to all other products available on the market resulting in it becoming a best seller.

The duel creams work together resulting in the skin around the eye becoming firmer with fine lines reduced. Reverse the years with our best selling and award-winning eye cream. Reverse the years with our best selling and award-winning eye cream that’s formulated with amino acids and PolyPeptide Lift Complex for an instantly lifted and, over time, a more youthful look

How to get the perfect ‘Smokey Eye’ – Hints & Tips

The perfect smokey eye look can be dramatic, beautiful and bold however it can be tricky to achieve. Here are my hints and tips.

Smokey Eyes Look

Getting the smokey eyes look can be tricky, I have been known to pull off more of a panda look on my first few attempts. Here are some great hints and tips to help you perfect this fantastic look.

Smokey eyes – getting started

My biggest over all tip is PRACTICE!! The amazing thing about the smokey eye look is that its so flexible. Subtle to bold, neutral to rainbow of colour.

  • Make sure your brushes are all clean, free from dust and previous shadows.
  • Eye primer is always a great help with a look where you eyes are the feature. Creating a smooth surface for a great look but helping to maintain it longer. Purchase your Avon Eye Primer HERE
  • Decide which colours of eye shadow you will be using. 3 shades of one main colour works best such as grey to black, or natural cream to brown. Other brighter colours can be used but a light, middle and dark collection works best.
  • A cream based eye shadow can work better than a powder as it blends easier but whichever you’re more comfortable with is key.

The main event

  1. Step one, after applying your primer is to use the mid-range colour over your eyelid, stopping at the natural crease and avoiding the inner corner. A domed eyeshadow brush works best for this basic coverage.
  2. Use a fresh brush for your lightest colour (this will be your ‘highlighter’) to highlight under your brow and in the inner corner of your eyelid. Highlight the whole length of the underside of your eyebrow. Use a smaller, flatter brush to apply the highlighter to the inner corner of your eyelid. It is optional to apply the higher on the lower eyelid too, below the waterline. Use a blending brush on your upper lid to blend your base colour and highlighter together.
  3. Time for a fresh brush to apply your darkest shade- small and flat if possible. When applying the darkest shade, it is better to do smaller amounts to build up the colour and coverage rather than putting too much on and starting all over again. Make a ‘C’ shape as you apply the eyeshadow from about have way down your natural crease and curving round to you lash line, covering mainly in the outer corner. Always start at the outer corner of the eye working inwards. The dark colour, ideally, shouldn’t go past half way or into the inner third of your eyelid.
  4. BLEND!! Blending is key!! Use a fluffy blending brush to blend the colours so there are no harsh lines. Working from your inner corner and brow bone (the highlighted areas) blending down and out. Blending can take a bit of time so be patient, it will be worth it. You can add more colour as you go if it is need, using the correct brush you used for each colour so not to make the colours patchy.

The finishing touches

From here you can play around adding the finishing touches. Eyeliner (wings or flicks maybe?) and mascara are vital in my opinion for executing this look but it is what you are comfortable with. A bit of glitter maybe fun and appropriate or just close your eyes and seal the look with some Setting Spray.

And now you will look amazing. The top tips are –

  • Primer – to give a fresh canvas and last longer
  • Plenty of fresh brushes – so not to transfer colours
  • BLENDING!!! – can’t get enough blending
  • Practice – this look will just get better each time you do it
