Dew Me, Cool Me

Skin quenchers.

Avene Thermal Spring Water
imageNo, those water beads on my skin isn't perspiration, or an oily complexion. It's my utmost obsession... Skin spritzers!

My friends would attest to this addiction; I offer them a spritz as often as I would a skim latte.

Cooling indeed. And sure, my just-spritzed skin looks all fresh and peachy keen, and could truly benefit from perpetual moisture. But hydration isn't the only thing magically stored in these spritz bottles, treatment benefits have been formulated to cure whatever ails our skin.

Replenishing, wrinkle smoothing, anti-oxidant boosting, protecting, skin-brightening, fragrant misting, oxygenating...The list goes on.

-Use to make mineral makeup look less powdery- also helps set your makeup.
-Use before your moisturizer- then massage the moisturizer into your skin while it's still damp. This helps to seal in moisturizer and combats dehydrated, dry skin.
-Keep a bottle in gym bag or purse, or in the refrigerator for a cool pick-me-up.

Here are my favorites:

Fragrant skin-freshers for the body...

To use:
For facial sprays- in most cases it is best to shake well before using. Hold bottle at arm's length, close eyes, and spritz over face and neck.
For body sprays- liberally spritz these fragrant waters for instant cooling and to smell divine.

Lackluster, sallow complexions no more, your newly improved, perfectly dewy skin will make a pretty statement.


- Back.

You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing.
