My first thought when I see the snow start to melt is, “I gotta work on my tan!” While that might be the first thought for most of us, we should be thinking, “I have to protect my skin!” All that time in the sun can cause irreversible damage that prematurely ages our skin and increases the risk of skin cancer.

This summer, make sure you protect your skin from the damaging effects of the environment. Avon has an incredible line of skincare from sunscreen to anti-aging treatments to allow you to put your best face forward. Give yourself a beautiful summer glow without the skin damage.

Protect Your Skin

From the sun to mosquitoes, your skin is exposed to so much in the summer that can leave it irritated and damaged. Be sure you are ready for the outdoors at a moment’s notice.  The Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus with SPF does wonders to keep those pesky bugs at bay and prevent sunburns. Instead of using DEET, this bug spray contains IR3535 which repels against biting insects including mosquitoes (even those that may carry West Nile Virus), deer ticks that transmit Lyme disease, black flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. It also has sunscreen up to SPF 30 so you can spray on and be ready for an entire day outdoors without having to carry around a bunch of sprays and bottles.

The Skin So Soft line offers a variety of bug sprays from aerosol to towelettes. They are also available with the active ingredient Picaridin instead of DEET. No more mosquito bites, and you don’t have to cover yourself with oily, stinky bug spray. Skin So Soft will protect your skin from the sun and pesky bugs while keeping your skin feeling soft and natural.

For the kiddos, check out the Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus IR3535® SPF 30 Cool ‘N Fabulous™ Disappearing Color Lotion. This sunscreen and bug spray goes on blue so you can see where it has been applied before the color fades. It will help insure that you have protected every inch of their baby soft skin so it can stay that way.

The regular version of this lotion is THE BEST bug repellent I have ever used – the only one that worked in the jungles of Thailand and the beaches of Costa Rica. It’s the ONLY one I trust to carry with me on my travels, especially since Zika has been present.

Get a Summer Glow AND Repair Past Damage

Skin So Soft Satin Glow Skin Illuminator has exactly what you are looking for to give your skin a beautiful glow and blur imperfections without baking your skin in the sun. Apply this moisturizing cream to your body and face for silky soft skin that has a healthy hint of color and sheen which has optical illuminators to diffuse the light and hide those slight imperfections.

Make your skin even more glowing with a little help from the Anew Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream. It is designed to moisturize and restore your skin to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and help fade sunspots. Add this to your nighttime routine, and it will also help prevent future damage. Don’t fret about all that things you have exposed your skin to over the years, start trying to fix it. This cream can even be used on sensitive skin. It is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, allowing you to restore your natural glow without irritating your skin.

Summertime means some pretty late nights hanging by the bonfire or moonlit dips in the lake or maybe just chasing your kids around all night because bedtime has gone to hell in a hand basket. Anew Clinical Absolute Even Dark Circle Corrector helps get rid of those bags by using self-adjusting sheer optics to reduce under eye shadows and smooth the texture of under eye skin. It goes on nicely and can be worn under makeup to help keep you looking fresh and like summer is treating you well.

Don’t forget about your hands! One of the worst part of getting older is that everything looks older…Everything, including your hands. All that sunshine and everyday aging creates those ugly age spots on your hands. The Anew Clinical Absolute Even Spot Correcting Hand Cream will lighten those age spots while improving texture and clarity to make your hands look as young as you feel.

Hair Removal

One of the most annoying things about summertime is the constant need to keep your skin hair free! I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of my time in the summer desperately trying to avoid razor burn. The Skin So Soft Fresh and Smooth Moisturizing Shave Oil contains shea butter extract with Vitamin A and E to soothe irritated skin and allow for a close shave without razor burn. It will leave you smooth and ready for that bikini.

If you prefer a hair removal cream to the old fashioned razor, give the Skin So Soft Fresh and Smooth Moisturizing Body Hair Removal Cream a try. With a refreshing cherry blossom scent, hydrating shea butter, and meadowfoam oil, it will get rid of those pesky hairs in under 3 minutes and leave your skin satin soft and hair free.
