Why SPF Just Isn’t Enough
You probably consider the sun your skin’s number one villain. And you’d be right. The closest star in our solar system is a DNA-damaging danger that you better take seriously — not just on National Sunscreen Day (May 27), but every day.
That being said, when it comes to your complexion, there are other environmental factors to consider. For example, cold weather and wind can dry out your skin and cause irritation. Dust from the air clogs pores, and invisible pollutants can break down skin’s natural oils, interfering with its cell-rebuilding process. Extreme temperatures (for instance, going from an air-conditioned office out into a hot, humid day) cause skin to adapt more quickly than usual and become imbalanced.
SPF alone may not be enough. There, we said it. So, short of just never, ever going outside — what’s a girl to do? Well, lots of dermatologists will tell you that there are two keywords to keeping skin young: protect and repair.
How, you ask? Wearing a hat is a good start. But you can also help build a solid defense with Avon’s ANEW Clinical Skinvincible SPF 50 Multi-Shield Lotion (for daytime) and Deep Recovery Cream (for nighttime). The powerful duo employs patented SmartRepair technology to give your skin a potent one-two punch. The lotion protects against a number of the aforementioned environmental aggressors — pollution, smoke, UV radiation, to name just a few — and the Recovery Cream helps address the harm that’s already been done.
When used in combination, some women report that this dream team repairs approximately four years — yes, four years — of damage*. And even more significant, 100% of women saw an improvement in skin’s overall health and radiance after eight weeks of use.
It’s never too late to begin a new chapter in your skincare routine. It’s time to fight back and say bye-bye to wrinkles and sunspots — and say hello to glowing, gorgeous skin.
