Aveeno’s new products not only protect you from the sun, but also hydrate your skin at the same time!

SPRING IS HERE!  Springtime means warmer weather and more outdoor activities – which means greater sun exposure.

AVEENO has become my #1 go-to for all things skincare. I think the main reason why I always go to their products, is because I TRUST them. I was so thrilled to see they had launched a new sun care line that helps not only protect from the sun, but reverses skin dehydration caused by the sun, chlorine, sweat and salt water. Their SPF coverage actually exceeds FDA standards!

The new AVEENO® PROTECT+ HYDRATE™ Collection nourishes skin to leave it feeling healthier than before you went in the sun.

AVEENO® PROTECT + HYDRATE™ has been shown to reduce water loss by providing 50% more hydration than the leading competitive sunscreen, keeping skin soft, smooth and healthy looking. ENVIROGUARD™ technology provides photo-stable, broad-spectrum coverage to protect skin against the sun’s damaging effects, while ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat works to replenish the skin barrier compromised by dehydration.

PICS: Kim Kardashian gets a “blood facial”

Kim Kardashian has taken her beauty routine to a whole new level! The reality star went to a crazy extreme to achieve good skin on Sunday’s episode of ‘Kourtney & Kim Take Miami’.

Taking her BFF Jonathan Cheban’s advice, the 32-year-old underwent a “blood facial.”

For the procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets, and then re-apply the blood to the skin via tiny needles.

For the out-there procedure, doctors draw blood from the arm, spin out the platelets and then apply the blood onto the via tiny needles. “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” the now-pregnant Kim reasoned.

The experience may not have been worth it, however. “Oh my god! I will never get a facelift if it feels like that.” On Sunday, she tweeted a pic from the experience. “Look what @jonathancheban did to me!”

Here’s more from Huff Po:

The made-for-horror movie cosmetic procedure is gaining popularity in the U.S. because it’s an “organic alternative to those that require chemical injections,” according to Dr. Sam Lam, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon based in Dallas, Texas.

“The patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is applied to the skin preceded by a laser treatment and followed by a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes,” explains Dr. Lam. “The growth factors in the platelet rich plasma reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.”

On the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” she gives us an up-close view of the vampire facial. With her BFF Jonathan Cheban by her side, Kimmy can’t help but scream out over the agonizing buzzing of the laser: “Oww! That hurts so badly.”

Would you do a vampire facial??
