Spring has Sprung

"Your skin, due to shedding of skin cells, replaces itself every 7 years. 
Actually, your skin sheds every 28-45 days, rejuvenating the epidermis and allowing the next generation of skin cells to come forward. The dead skin needs to slough off to allow the new cells to the top. We shed about 40 lbs of skin in a lifetime!"

I don't know about you, but Springs shedding of skin can't come soon enough. The Winter blah's are the equivalent to dry, itchy, spotty, gray skin. There aren't enough loofahs in the world, to scrub away rough patches. Thank your lucky stars, Science and Beauty, make an awesome partnership. A fan of Aveeno  for years, I can't wait to see what's new for Spring. I love the natural vibe to the line, and the amazingly fresh, clean scent. Seems the original, skin glow goddess, Jennifer Aniston is a fan, recently partnering up with the au naturale brand.

"Jennifer's holistic approach to life and natural beauty are a perfect match for Aveeno skincare,"  states a rep for the company.

with its healing natural ingredients, like Colloidal Oatmeal, natural oils and 
emollients rejuvenates dry skin, leaving soft, supple and hydrated skin. Without overbearing perfumes, or the fuss. An all time fan- favorite, Daily Moisturizing Body Wash the  immediate cure for subzero blues. 

Aveeno Clear Complexion BB Cream with SPF 30,  facial moisturizers answer to flawless, uncomplicated, natural beauty. The wave of the future, BB Clear Complexion Cream is oil-free, hypo-allergenic and non-comedogenic.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream

Tone. Texture. Dullness. Blotchiness. Brown Spots.
The oil-free, hydrating formula penetrates deep while you sleep.
I like to apply it pre make-up application, on overly dry, sensitive skin.
Skin looks and feels beautiful, ready for your MU closeup. Gentle enough for everyday.

Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Removing Wipes.
I have searched high and low for the perfect makeup wipe. I can't tell you how many models, celebs, clients have refused countless other brands. Fear no more. Aveeno Ultra Calming Makeup Wipes with Calming Feverfew are exactly what the face doctor ordered. Made for sensitive skin, they remove dirt, makeup and waterproof mascara in one swipe. Ultra-Calming Wipes soothe and cleanse, the face feels clean, not irritated. The tight, plastic closure, ensures wipes won't dry out. Keep a set in your purse, jet setters and off you go.
