Win It!  New Skincare for the Summer from Avene!
This may seem a bit strange to you, but read the next few paragraphs through for a moment and think about it for a moment.

Your skin needs moisture. Everyone's skin needs moisture. Even skin that is oily, and let's be honest, we all have more issues with the shine in the summer. But... some of that oil is because your skin is dehydrated. What?? Hold the phone. Yes. Oily and hydrated are actually 2 separate things, though somewhat related. The oil will help your skin to hold on to moisture, so in general your skin is more hydrated if it is oily. But... remember that part about your skin being more shiny and oily in the summer? Yes, that bit. What if some of that was because your skin was actually dry? Which it probably is, what with all of the sweating, heading to the beach, etc. What would happen if you pampered your skin a little bit and tried to add some of that moisture back in?

Perhaps your skin would be a bit happier with more hydration. Glowier. And actually, less oily even?

Avene wants to come to your rescue! They have a lot of great hydration products, and they want to offer 5 (!!) prize packs for 15 Minute Beauty Readers!

In each skin care prize pack
• 150 mL bottle of Avène Thermal Spring Water
Soothing Moisture Mask
Cold Cream Ultra Rich Cleansing Bar
Cold Cream Hand Cream
Cold Cream Lip Cream

All of these products are great for adding a little moisture back in to your skin, and pampering areas that might get a little extra attention in the summer (like those lips).

The contest is open to those 18 years of age or older, in the United States.

Christine,
HI! I'm trying to keep my skin clear and clean, and do be more religious about using my Clarisonic! I'm also moisturizing my face and sometimes my neck twice a day. And, making sure that I use sunscreen with a SPF of at least 40! I've got 51 year old skin, that's why! I love your blog btw!!

Leaf said...

Using more SPF and laying off some of the richer products!

Kassie Harris said...

I've been terrible about using sunscreen on my face in the past so this year I'm going to make more of an effort to protect my skin.

Sarah said...

I wish this was open to Canadian residents - but! no harm, no foul. I studied Avene for my former work and I grew to love the entire product line, they have a truly amazing history and anyone who enjoys skincare would do well to read about it. Good luck to those who enter!

Niki T. said...

More SPF and eating clean!

Ellen Peck said...

I absolutely love Avene products! I discovered the moisture mask in France, and have used it ever since. I always wear at least SPF 15 (for quick runs out) or SPF 30 (when I'm out for 1/2 or or so), and higher when I'm out for longer - it's just part of the routine!

Anjali said...

Always using sunscreen and trying to incorporate a retinol at night

Christina De Leon said...

The skin care changes I'm making this summer is to be make sure to wash my makeup off each night, to moisturize my skin, & to always use a good SPF. I would luv to try these skin care products, I looking for a new skin care regimen to help clear up my face & to help keep my skin moisturized.

I love Avene products! Use the Ystheal!

Love Avene products, trying to use more sunscreen, especially on my neck & chest

Always use sunscreen, summer or winter, but will lighten up on some of my heavier lotions.

Angela Barnes said...

I am using more serums than lotions this year.

Jessa said...

I am finally developing a consistent sunscreen routine!

magstermash said...

I am wearing an actual bonafide sunscreen everyday (as opposed to an SPF moisturizer) on my face and paying more attention to products that help with inflammation. I hope I get to try Avene.

Ruby said...

Making it routine to use eye cream every night

Miskate said...

I've been working on cleaning up my diet to help clear up my skin (and lose some weight!), as well as trying to find products with SPF that don't break me out. I've also gotten much more religious about maintaining a proper cleansing and moisturizing routine. I'm 30 now, and my skin doesn't look quite as perky as it used to. I want to slow any aging that I can.

This summer I plan to invest in an entire cruelty-free skincare line, as organic as possible. No parabens, sulfates or chemical sunscreens.

hunnybird said...

I have always used sunscreen all over year round.. I am going to lose weight!

crystesmom said...

I am being super-diligent about re-applying my sunscreen (I am a melanoma survivor!) and staying as well-hydrates as possible. I am also trying to be sure to help educate others about how to use caution when they are exposed to the sun. I am using lighter-weight skincare products and makeup (no foundation at all when I'm just hanging out at home!) in order to avoid breakouts and clogged pores caused by sweat and excess oils collecting on my skin. Thank you and Avene for this wonderful giveaway!

lov2read68 said...

As the temps begin to crawl up, I decrease the amount of makeup I wear. I do increase the amount of SPF I wear making sure that I include decollete & my backs of my hands/arms. This is a fabulous giveaway!!

Shannon said...

I have really dry skin, but really fight the oil during the summer. Would love to try these products.

Shannon said...

Using more sunscreen. I'm also trying Clinique CC Cream.

More water, less Pepsi, less processed foods!

I bought DHC Cleansing oil to help get rid of makeup on my face at night. Hoping it will help my adult acne.

I'm being more diligent with putting on sunscreen and also staying more hydrated with water.

Stephanie said...

I had added an additional night time treatment of a peel off face mask at least twice a week for the added sweat and dirt of the summer :)!

Adding more serums and moisture gels to my skincare. I have started using Japanese face masks before bed.
