For some women it’s time to rejoice. We can pull out our beautiful scarves, coats and boots that have been tucked away in storage for months. Maybe we can even take a trip to the snowfields or get cosy with a glass of wine in front of an open fire.
But for many women over 30, winter is also time where our skin really starts to suffer. Gone is the dewy, fresh summer complexion and in its place, is dry flaky skin that needs a little more attention.
It’s really important to step up our daily and nightly skin care routines to counteract the effects of the colder and drier weather. We may even need to change the skincare products that we currently use to get better results.
As a mum of two boys who fits squarely into the over 30 category, I am always looking for productsthat will help disguise the fact that I am constantly tired and am creeping towards the big 4-0!
When I came across the Olay Regenerist Range, I was intrigued. Here is a skincare range that has been scientifically formulated and,more importantly, proven to combat the ageing process. The unique combination of active anti-ageing ingredients means that I can turn back the clock up to ten years! I definitely was keen to give it a go!
It is also the perfect range for savvy women looking for value for money.Contrary to popular belief, the best products for our skin are not always the most expensive. Olay uses advanced technology in their formulations and this “supermarket brand” can give you the results that you would expect to see with high-end $400+ luxury creams.
Olay Regenerist features ingredients such as Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which accelerates the renewal of surface cells and in turn reduces wrinkles, Olive extract (Olivem), an anti-oxidant that helps protect skin from oxidative damage, Amino Peptides which are pro-collagen molecules that help repair skin, Dill Seed Extract (Lys’lastine) which enhances the skin’s elasticity and Hylauronic Acid and Glycerol, which are hydrating agents for softer, plumper skin.
By using high quality skincare and sticking to a good day and night routine, your skin will look more youthful, radiant and smooth all year round.
Suggested Day Routine
After cleansing with the Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System, an electronic device that gently loosens, lifts and cleans oil from the face, apply the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and Micro-Sculpting Serum.
This will prep your skin for Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting UV Cream, a multi-tasking product that incorporates a Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen. This luxurious, non-greasy cream targets three of the hardest areas to treat – eye, jaw line neck.
The formula features an amino-peptide complex which works to help renew the skin’s surface layers and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by moisturising, exfoliating and smoothing the skin.
Suggested Night Routine: The Olay Regenerist Overnight Miracle regimen
Make sure you cleanse thoroughly to remove all traces of makeup, dirt and oil. Then apply the Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence. Overnight is when our skin works the hardest to repair itself from cellular damage and unfortunately, this process slows down as we age.
In fact, more than 7 out of 10 women who trialled the Olay Regenerist Overnight Miracle regime noticed visible results. Thanks to the Olay Regenerist range, I now have a really simple yet effective skin care routine. It only takes few minutes in the morning and evening so it really is no fuss. My skin feels smoother and more hydrated. I love it!
I am definitely seeing improvement in the clarity of my skin and the reduction in the fine lines that have formed around my eyes. If you think this is not possible, then you must try it and see for yourself.
