In the upcoming weeks I'll be sharing them with you, but today I want to focus on an interesting, quite unique launch receiving skin saving praise.

Looking at the SPF isn't enough on a sunscreen bottle. This is VERY important to know. The sun protection factor, only relates to the degree of protection a formula provides against UVB rays--- think of the "B" as the burning point. UVA rays--- think of the "A" as the aging factor, are the ones that penetrate deep into the skin, destroying all the "good" collagen and elastins that keep your skin supple, moisturized and healthy. Sunscreens containing avobenzone or zinc oxide are essential ingredients needed in a sunscreen to absorb the UVA once it hits the skin. ALWAYS make sure these are listed on the formula's ingredient list.

Avon's Anew Solar Advance provides a new anti-aging approach to sunscreens. It addition to offering superior protection against the sun's damaging UVA/UVB rays it helps repair skin cell sun damage. It does this by stimulating natural enzymes within the cells to turn on their own antioxidant defense system and boost skin's own antioxidants to fight free radicals.

Impressive, I would say and one of the first sunscreens out on the market designed to REPAIR.

Anew Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF 45 and Solar Advance Sunscreen Body Lotion SPF 30, both $34 are launching any day now.
