Good Skin 101, Announcing the Anew Skincare Line for Men

Monday, November 17 2014

From the Desk of Clearisa's Command Center/Avon Diva Good Skin 101, Announcing the Anew Skincare Line for Men - If you follow my Avon blog, you know that although I love to glam it up, skincare is most important to me. I believe good skin does not need to be covered with makeup all the time. Glamour is to enhance your beauty not to hide flaws. Anew is, and has been, a mainstay for many of my female customers and for me as well. But finally Avon has listened to the requests of a lot of representatives and to you when we requested a skincare line for the man. It's here - an Anew skincare line for the man who takes pride in his appearance and understands the importance of good skincare.This line has everything required to keep male skin looking healthy and to avoid the signs of aging. It takes the guesswork out of the steps to follow and/or the products to use. Included in the set are:The 2 in 1 Gel Cleanser (1st step-day & night) Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum (2nd step-day) Daily Eye Treatment (3rd step- - day & night)Daily Moisturizer (2nd step - night). I am so excited and you should be too!!!! Contact me on Facebook at Clearissa's Avon Boutique or visit my Avon eStore to order this great breakthrough product.

Good Skin 101, Step Four - Facials

Sunday, November 09 2014

From the Desk of Clearisa's Command Center/Avon Diva Good Skin 101, Step Four If you have been following this series, and I hope you have, you know that we have cleansed, toned and moisturized and we know that those steps are required at least twice each day. In the mornings and before bed. Those are the basics and your skin would probably be okay if you consistently followed this regime twice a day. But who wants okay skin? Not me, we want fabulous skin, right? We want younger looking skin with small pores and a smooth texture and you can have fabulous skin just by adding a couple of steps to your regular routine.One of those extra steps is a monthly facial. Don't panic, you don't have to pay spa prices and you can give yourself a facial at home. As a matter of fact, I try to give myself a facial once a week to keep dead cells removed and pores clean and tightened. I would suggest getting a professional facial at least once every 6 months however; if it's in your budget. It's a totally relaxing experience and coupled with the aromatherapy and the sense of peace you feel when you receive a professional facial is something that will make you feel wonderful and look great too. But that spa-like feeling is something you can emulate at home.Because the Anew line does not have a facial mask, I don?t know why and I think I will make the suggestion to create one, I use the Clearskin Black Mineral facial mask, still by Avon of course. It?s a fun mask to use. You put it on your face and neck and it?s black but as it dries and tightens, it turns grey. It is so cool and it works to deep clean and shrink pores, while tightening the skin and we all can agree that tight is good, right? I suggest that you put on some soft music, perhaps light a candle, have a cup of chamomile tea and just sit back and chill. The instructions indicate that you should leave the mask on for 15 minutes; I generally sit with it on for 30 minutes or more. Just because it feels good.Clear Skin Mud Mask 4 Clear Skin Mud Mask 1 Clear Skin Mud Mask 2 Clear Skin Mud Mask 5When it?s time to remove the mask I first rinse with warm, not hot, water and when all of the mask is removed, I then use cold water for my final rinse to close the pores. Did I mention the order in which the mask fits into your daily routine? You should first cleanse your face, then use the mask, tone and moisturize. I generally like to use the mask in the evenings because it is so relaxing and you will rest well afterwards. Also, your skin, as do all of your organs, regenerates while you sleep so before bed is a perfect time. I do; however, throw a treatment in if I'm going out someplace special. My skin glows after a mask so if I am going someplace special and have the time, I treat myself and my skin to a facial beforehand.As a side note, when I can get to a professional salon for a couple of hours of pampering, I like to visit Skin Sense in the Cary or Briar Creek, NC area. The atmosphere is awesome. So awesome, in fact, that I actually hate to leave when my time is up. I generally get the oxygen infused facial when I visit Skin Sense. The oxygen helps your skin produce collagen and as we age, we need all the oxygen and collagen we can get. :)Next time we will discuss an eye cream and other specialty items you can use to target those problem areas we all have.If you missed my posts on cleansing, toning and moisturizing, be sure to read them as well.To your skin healthRemember to share - Sharing is Caring #avondiva #cccc #athomefacials #allthingsarepossible Subscribe to Receive Updates from Clearissa directly in your email...
