I do not want to "grow old gracefully"...I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I will be turning 35 this November and I am definitely feeling as though I have aged a bit in the past year. This summer I started looking at my skin more closely and wondering, "Have my pores gotten larger?...How long have I had that tiny wrinkle?" I also discovered my first two sunspots! Are you kidding me?!?!
I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to review Avon's Anew Rejuvenate Day and Night Creams. Avon states that Rejuvenate products are for "women experiencing the first signs of aging, including fine lines, uneven skin tone, dullness, rough texture and tone and visible pores". I was in denial for a little bit, but now I am facing the truth. I am starting to see the first signs of aging...and I am determined to fight it!
Although the samples were small, there has been enough cream for me to use them for the past two weeks. I don't tend to use a lot, so I imagine it depends on the person. Also, I may need to use more during the winter months here. My skin gets pretty dry. Right now my skin is pretty normal, not dry, not oily. I applied the creams during the day and night and overall, I was happy. Did it lift my skin back to where it was before? No, I wish it did :) But, I can't remember the last time my skin felt this soft! My skins appears to have a smoother complexion overall and doesn't seem as dull. Yeah! Not only, did it improve the look of my skin, but my favorite aspect of this cream is that the Day Cream has SPF 25 against UVA/UVB rays! I am not a girl who goes and sits out in the sun, but obviously with the new appearance of the sunspots this summer, I definitely need to step up my protection!
I was wondering, "How can a cream do this? What is the chemistry behind it?" and the Avon website explains it nicely -
