The Avon ANEW Vitale line is a breakthrough formula with VitaTone Complex, an exclusive blend of patented and patent-pending ingredients and peptides, that is formulated to help awaken and invigorate dull, tired skin to renew vitality, improve skin tone and give an overall radiant glow.

The ANEW Vitale collection includes:

ANEW Vitale

The collection is great for anyone, regardless of skin tone, wanting a boost in skin radiance.  Products from the line can also be cocktailed with other treatment products from Avon.  I really like the day and night cream and I’m currently using both with  the Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel pads ($25) and the Anew Clinical Absolute Even Multi-Tone Skin Corrector ($39.99) and I’m getting great results. Both creams are light-weight and give me a great moisture boost without feeling like I draped a wet paper towel over my face.  I’m not alone in my love of these products. Based on a clinical study, 9 out of 10 women showed improved clarity and more even toned skin with continued use.

Avon Donates $5 From Sale of Every ANEW Vitale Day/Night Cream

to Breast Cancer Research

Avon believes every woman deserves a brighter future, so for the month of October, with every ANEW Vitale Day or Night Cream purchase, Avon is donating $5 to the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. (Up to 1 million dollars.)
I very highly recommend you get one of the creams and a treatment product based on your skin care concern. For example, if you are like me and want to even out tone and texture, you can try my cocktail above.  If you are starting to see signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, you may try the Anew Clinical Resurfacing Expert Smoothing Fluid with the ANEW Vitale products.  Just remember that for the month of October, $5 from the sale of the every ANEW Vitale Day/Night Cream  will go to  Breast Cancer Research so now is the time to stock up.

P.S.  Feel your boobs (Breast Self Exam) and get them checked regularly by a doctor.

Last October, I had the pleasure of seeing the work of David Jay, the fashion photographer behind the Pulitzer prize nominated SCAR Project.  The SCAR Project is “a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors.”

The experience was moving and powerful one for me and I strongly urge you to see it. You may read ThisThatBeauty’s interview with David Jay here.

The second annual exhibit runs from October 28th through November 6th, 2011. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this amazing exhibit. Tickets are available at EventBrite.

For more information on The SCAR Project, please visit  the exhibit website or Facebook page.

If you attend the exhibit, please take a moment to share your reaction with us at ThisThatBeauty.

In 2010, more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer.  David Jay created The Scar Project as a means to raise awareness about the alarming incidents of breast cancer in women under the age of 40.  “The mission is three-fold: Raise public consciousness of early-onset breast cancer, raise funds for breast cancer research/outreach programs and help young survivors see their scars, faces, figures and experiences through a new, honest and ultimately empowering lens.”

David was so moved after his 32 year old friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. “The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.”  The International Premier Exhibit of The SCAR Project: Surviving Cancer- Absolute Reality, opens October 14th and runs through to 17th.

I had the opportunity to speak with David Jay regarding beauty, The Scar Project and his photography, the result of that conversation is below…

ThisThatBeauty: What prepares you for the emotion that you see in the breast cancer survivors that you photograph?

David Jay: There’s no way to prepare myself for such beautiful, raw emotion. The best I can do as a photographer (and as a man) is to try and create an environment where that emotion can be safely expressed . . . . and be prepared to capture it on film when it is.

ThisThatBeauty: Has the experience with The Scar Project changed the way you relate to women?

David Jay: It has only further validated my respect for them. Strong and courageous with love and humility.  I am very glad to be a man . . . . but they really are a superior gender!

ThisThatBeauty: Having done The Scar Project, has your definition of beauty changed?

David Jay: Not so much my definition of beauty, but hopefully my ability to capture it.

ThisThatBeauty: If you could change one thing about how society and the fashion industry defines beauty, what would that be and why?

David Jay: I’m not sure the definition of beauty needs to be changed. More important is an individual’s reaction to beauty. One needs to understand that the images they see in the magazines are not meant to be a mirror to judge themselves against; not meant to be taken literally. They are meant to be enjoyed. To be feasted upon. To stimulate and seduce. They are fantasy presented as truth. Rarely completely honest. Like a Hollywood movie and created in much the same way; the finished product appearing seamless, effortless, real.

ThisThatBeauty: What is the hardest part about taking on something as serious and as life altering as breast cancer?

David Jay: I struggled shooting The SCAR Project. I was torn. Neither art project nor beauty pageant The SCAR Project is a powerful, beautifully disturbing look into the souls of women confronting a devastating disease. I wanted the pictures to be raw, honest, sincere. Yet I knew why the subjects had come to me; they wanted something beautiful. They had already suffered greatly. And though I desperately wanted to serve them, I knew in my heart that compromising the visual integrity of The SCAR Project for the sake of easily digested beauty would serve no one. Certainly not the people I hoped to be impacted by the images: the public at large who remain blissfully unaware of the risk or reality, anesthetized by pink ribbons and fluffy teddy bears.

ThisThatBeauty: You’ve taken dozens of images of breast cancer survivors, of all these images, which has impacted you the most and why?

David Jay: I was shooting Sara. Things were going nicely, smoothly. Laughter. The pictures looked good. Honest. I was pleased with the images we had captured. I loaded the pictures into the computer and called Sara over to look. Silence. Silence. Tears. Mine too. I grabbed the camera again. That’s the picture you see here.

ThisThatBeauty: Thank you David Jay…for this interview and The SCAR Project.
