They say thirty is the new twenty, but I think we can all agree that our skin is always telling of our age. You know what I’m talking about: laugh lines, unevenness, dullness, and dryness.
I distinctly remember the first time I realized my skin was showing those pesky first signs of aging.
It was a few years ago and I was on holiday with my family, and my father, who is the nicest, most respectful man ever, looked over at me and asked if I was sick. My stomach dropped, “No Dad, I’m just not wearing makeup.” Ugh.
I stepped up my skincare routine after that and perhaps even over-complicated it with way too many steps.
From that day on, I began to moisturize every nook and cranny of my face. I’d start with my face, bring it down to my neck and chest and end with the back of my hands (because they say your real age shows on your hands).
And while yes, moisture is always a good thing, I was always using the wrong skincare products for my sensitive combo/oily skin and I was unknowingly irritating my face along the way.
Fast forward to now and I’ve simplified my skincare routine to a couple of simple steps and I no longer look sick without makeup. If you want to know what my secret to youthful-looking skin is, just keep reading.
When Olay approached me to take their Olay 28 Day Challenge, I was excited.
I’ve heard only good things about the Olay Regenerist line and my favourite beauty editor, Sali Hughes, just so happens to speak highly of Olay. She’s the type of person who doesn’t get swayed by department store price tags and fancy names and instead, always seeks out good-quality products that work. I mean, isn’t that what we all want anyway?
I dove all-in to my own personal Olay 28 Day Challenge in the beginning of October and as I come to a close with the challenge, I’m happy to report that my skin has improved!
My #28DayOlay Challenge Results:
Fine lines are a bit less pronounced and my skin looks plumper and feels more hydrated.
Skin continues to feel and look plump and hydrated. My under-eye circles are less pronounced thanks to the Olay Ultimate Eye Cream. I’m finding my makeup also stays on longer because the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream isn’t oily. No more foundation primer!
I went to Iceland for a week on vacation. Normally my skin gets dry and patchy in the cold weather but my skin continues to feel hydrated, plump and more youthful thanks to the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream. Too bad I can’t say the same for my lips. They’ve been dry since I got back!
I’m feeling more and more confident that Olay has whipped my skin into shape. My eyes aren’t puffy in the mornings and my skin is feeling soft and looking good.
Why Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Works
Through extensive research, Olay has found age-related decreases in skin’s energy level, making it less responsive to anti-aging ingredients.
As a result, they designed the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream to boost skin’s hydration, in order to help fight the look of skin fatigue and accelerate anti-aging results.
Tested on 2,500 women worldwide, they found an increase in brightness and decrease in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It also hydrates better than the leading luxury $250 cream and regenerates skin’s surface layers up to 2x faster after five days. It even reverses ten years of wrinkle appearance after just four weeks!
