Get the Glow!
With holiday season almost upon us, we would all like beautiful sun-kissed skin but none of us want the after-effects of a tan, which is loss of elasticity, sagging, premature skin ageing and pigmentation. Not to mention the long term damage to our skin cells that the UV rays can cause. Well, the good news is that you can have both!
Firstly, the most important thing we can do for our skin is to drink enough water. Particularly in a warmer climate you should be drinking at least 6 full glasses of water a day. Start first thing in the morning. Drink a tumbler full of water before you even brush your teeth. Eat plenty of skin-feeding fruit and veg - at least 6 portions a day. Fish containing Omega-3 oils are also great for your skin (and joints)
Secondly use a factor 50 sunscreen. "No" I hear you scream! I will be white! Well, the good news is that despite the fact that your skin is protected from harmful rays you will still gain some colour, just not the skin-damaging kind. If you're spending time out in the sun, wear a hat. And always protect your eyes with a certified pair of sunglasses. Your future self will thank you for it.
Naturally, we recommend you use AVON SUN+ Anti-ageing Face cream SPF50. You also need to protect your lips, so for this we recommend Protecting Balm which has an SPF of 30.
You can help keep your skin look younger for longer by using a cream with a high SPF all-year-round. We love AVON SUN+ Multi Protecting Moisturising Face Lotion. However if you want a cream with a bit more 'oomph' try using Avon Nutra-Effects with Active Seed Complex which has a built-in SPF of 20, retailing at £8 normally but at the time of going to press with this blog it is on offer at on £5.50! (Active seed complex is a collagen-boosting formula featuring antioxidant-rich pomegranate seeds. Or for the creme-de-la-creme of skin protecting and repairing go to our amazing Anew range and choose the day cream that is right for your skin type.
Get that sun-kissed glow with our skin-loving beauty balm or why not try Avon Bright Start, a light, fresh look foundation which we are reliable informed out-performs its much more expensive competitor and has SPF15 built in as an added bonus.
If you're not a lover of foundation, try getting the glow all over with Avon's sensational 7 in 1 glow body lotion which builds a gradual tan and is available in fair and medium. "its so easy to achieve a streak-free tan with this fab lotion! It builds up gradually, and fades naturally too, for a gorgeous mediterranean glow on a budget!" says Avon UK's Bath and Body Brand Planner Emma Trainor.
