Feels like the long hot Summer days are already here, and they definitely are here in Texas, so yeah, cooling skin care has definitely been on my mind as of late, so I thought I’d share some cooling, refreshing, and soothing ideas with you.
After a day out in the sun, whether you’ve been boating, swimming, traveling, or just out and about on the town, Avon’s JeJu Aloe Ice Glace may be a welcomed new-comer to your bath and body routine. Here is Avon’s official description for you:
ALOE…NATURE’S MIRACLE MOISTURIZER
Sourced from the pristine Korean island of Jeju, known for its fertile volcanic soil and lush flora, south of the Korean peninsula, this natural wonder is a natural skin smoother.
Get soothing with a 3-in-1 gel with aloe that contains antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins A and C, and helps calm, soothe and soften irritated skin. Use as a moisturizer, soothing after-sun care or as a facial pack. Can also be refrigerated for a cooling effect—perfect for spring and summer.
• 3-in-1 gel with aloe vera extract
• Use as moisturizer, soothing after-sun care or facial pack
• For dry, sensitive, irritated areas of face and body
• Can also be refrigerated for a cooling effect
Apply liberally on face and body.
I have used the JeJu Aloe (99%) Fresh Soothing Gel, and it is wonderful. There is also a JeJu Aloe Fresh Soothing Mist. That sounds wonderful too! Definitely worth a try.
Now, before you even get out in the sun, perhaps we should take a step back and first protect.
Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty SPF 50 is Avon’s highest sunscreen protection in an ultra-lightweight, quickly absorbed lotion that glides on your skin smoothly.
Smooth over face after moisturizing and before applying makeup. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply every 2 hours. Use a water-resistant sunscreen if swimming or sweating.

Avon just introduced a brand new SPF to their skin care lineup called Isa Knox Anew Solaire. There is a facial lotion and a face and body lotion. I’ll post a link to Avon’s entire Sun Skin Care line-up at the end of this blog post.
How about a cooling moisturizer? I thought you’d say yes!
Avon’s new Farm RX line is one of my favorites. If you follow my blog then you’ll know that I love using the Farm RX Super Greens Multivitamin Moisturizing Lotion. It is also cooling to the skin, so I’ve been enjoying using it already in our early Summer heatwave in Texas. It reminds me of using Noxzema. It has that same cool feel. The thing that makes Farm RX different than other skin care lines is that it is made from Super Greens. Yeah! It’s Farm to Face goodness!
Here is (part of) Avon’s description:
Nourish your skin with fresh greens. Super Greens Cooling Gel works as a lightweight moisturizer to help soothe and cool skin, and can also be used as a mask to hydrate skin while you sleep. Formulated with super nutrients like broccoli sprouts, brussels sprouts, moringa oil and green tea to keep skin looking softer, brighter and healthier.
This does not contain and SPF, so when you use this in the morning, be sure to follow up with an SPF like Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense (as shown above) before heading out. Avon does have several moisturizers that contain an SPF. Here is a link to Avon’s complete line of Sun Skin Care products as promised.
Now, to take your Summer Cooling Skin Care routine a step further, how about actually locking in moisture?
