One of my biggest confidence boosters is radiating, clear, youthful skin. You may have noticed already over on Instagram that this past month, I participated in the Olay 28 Day Challenge. For 28 straight days, I committed to using three Olay products morning and night for the sole purpose in helping to preserve youth in my skin.
After years of flawless baby skin, people warned me that my late 20’s were going to start to show on my face whether I wanted it to or not. Taking care of my skin is important to me, and since I plan on preserving my skin naturally without injections, using the right skin care is a great start. I started using Olay back in my high school days when I was already serious about having amazing skin. As a model and pageant winner, I wanted to make sure my face was clear, hydrated, smooth, and line-free. Fast forward 11 years, I always like switching out skin care products here and there, so I accepted the challenge to use Olay for 28 days and to monitor all the changes I saw after 4 weeks of use.
Every morning and night, I would cleanse my face with the Olay Daily Facials. I cannot hype up these cloths enough. Just add a little water to the cloth, scrunch it up, and suddenly your cloth is full of the most gentle cleansing soap to remove dirt, make-up, or oils built up during the day (or night).
Next, I use the Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 daily moisturizer to hydrate my freshly cleansed skin. There are a couple different versions of this moisturizer. Since I have more sensitive skin, I used the fragrance free version. Not only that, but it comes with SPF 15 in it to protect your skin against the sun’s harmful rays. I try to stay out of the sun as much as possible, but when you live in southern California, that’s nearly impossible. Sun damage can happen over time on skin and the effects aren’t pretty, so this moisturizer helps prevent that from happening. While it protects your skin, it’s also hydrating it, smoothing it, and brightening it – all things you certainly want in a moisturizer! Over 4 weeks, I did see my skin start to brighten. While my issue with redness isn’t completely gone, my skin has a bit of a natural luminance to it thanks to Total Effects.
My last step in the Olay 28 Day Challenge is using the Olay Deep Hydrating Eye Gel to decrease puffiness and dark circles around my eyes. I loathe my dark circles, especially since they can be so stubborn, so I’m always keen to try new eye creams that’ll work their magic. I definitely saw improvement in my dark circles over the course of 28 days, so much so that I would step out of the house without wearing a drop of concealer. Normally I am always covering up my dark circles even if it’s just to hang out at the pool. Not anymore!
I’m super excited to finish out the summer with gorgeously glowing, youthful skin. Are you interested in taking the Olay 28 Day Challenge? Click here to shop these products at CVS begin your journey to beautiful skin!
