The Beautiful Imperfection Of Daily Life

My days are busy and filled with activity, but at the heart of it all is still just me, a girl who wants to look her best while juggling it all. I need a beauty routine that fits, and recently discovered how easily AVEENO® ULTRA-CALMING® DAILY MOISTURIZER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 fits into my life.

I am many things, but most importantly, I’m a mom and wife, and want to build memories with my family. Now that it’s summer, I live my life outdoors to keep up with my active boys, and I’m in the sun a lot. My skin tends to become rougher, dry, and ruddy in the sun, and obviously the aging effects of the sun are something I’d want to avoid. During the summer, my skincare routine is the most important step in my beauty regimen…namely, protecting and moisturizing my skin.

Since I need to keep my skin protected from the sun and moisturized, the broad spectrum sunscreen in AVEENO® ULTRA-CALMING® DAILY MOISTURIZER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15, saves me steps in my daily skincare routine. It is clinically proven to calm and soothe irritated, sensitive skin- the type I have- and has become my one and only skin product during the summer.

So when I’m on the go, running around outdoors on a dry summer day, my skin is moisturized.

When I’m playing on the beach with my kids, my skin is protected from the sun.

When I’m driving around with the window down, or swimming in a chlorinated pool, and my face is exposed to all sorts of different elements, my sensitive skin stays soothed, and I look calm and together when I talk to clients, the neighbors, teachers, anyone. Who doesn’t want to look relaxed, confident, and well put together (even on days you don’t feel that way)?

Our daily lives are different, but all beautiful in their own imperfect ways, and a beauty product that fits in across all those many facets of our daily details is the one that should be on our shelf, ready to use each morning. For me, AVEENO® ULTRA-CALMING® DAILY MOISTURIZER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 is my go to product, even on days where I don’t have time to put on make-up…my skin still looks great.
