5 Ways To Effectively Boost Your Skin Care Regimen
Even the strongest, most independent person gets tired and weak sometimes, thus they need a little boost, a nudge, and a pat on the shoulder to assure them that they’re going to be fine.
I’d like to think that it’s the same case with our skin. After some time (let’s say, every 3-5 years), it ages: it loses its elasticity, smoothness, suppleness, and glow as days go by, therefore it needs a boost. Olay did (and has been doing) a research on aging and one of their studies showed that:
“…Olay discovered that women’s skin looks dull, fatigued, and dehydrated as it ages. Skin Cell Energy, as measured by level enzyme of NADP(H) in cells, is high among young people, but, as women get older, Skin Cell Energy declines…Skin Cell Energy allows skin to produce and maintain radiance, firmness and hydration. It affects skin’s ability to fight signs of skin ageing and its ability to absorb anti-ageing treatments…(Source: International study conducted by Beijing Technical Center, Jan 2014)”
Our skin is just like us: it needs a little boost for it to look beautiful, stay strong, and age gracefully. A sound skin care regimen will help you achieve these, yes, but what happens if your skin gets used to it?
You boost it.
The journey to a big change begins with small steps-here are five simple yet effective ways to step up your skin care game and breathe new life into your skin. Click READ MORE.
5. Shake Up Your Skin Care Choices
Every month, try to add/change products into your routine. It could be a new moisturizer, sunblock, or even facial foam. Take out products that you think don’t serve you because they’re just eating up your time, taking up unnecessary dresser space, and may keep your tried and tested products from doing what they’re supposed to do. This tiny change will wake up your skin because in case you did not know, skin is highly reactive to completely new and even re-introduced skin care products.
4. Shake Up Your Skin Care Routine
Give yourself a weekly rejuvenating facial in a trusted derma clinic or incorporate DIY or ready- made masks in your routine. Tweak your skin care routine every month or 3 months because who knows? Those little extras might impart a big change to your skin.
3. Eat/Drink Your Skin Care
By this, I meant eat/drink food/beverages that have the same minerals/vitamins as your skin care products. For example, if you rely on Vitamin C for skin brightening purposes, eat fruits and veggies rich with the same vitamin to help clarify your skin even more. You get the drift. ;)
A lot of people can only live on moisturizer and if you’re part of the group, might as well go for a moisturizer that’s nutrient- dense and offers various skin care benefits so you can get the best of all worlds without having to use too much products.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is an example (remember my trip to Sydney with Olay? I found out about this moisturizer in that trip): it is a rich yet light cream with intense hydrating, firming, and lifting properties, thanks to its formula with the highest concentration of amino-peptide complex (vs. other Olay products), intracellular fortifier, and is touched with precious marine extracts. It is formulated to prevent sagging, smooth, soften, and revitalize skin. This product is also said to be comparable to luxury creams (in fact, it has trumped a bunch of $300+ creams in a test conducted by Olay) and guess what? It’s now available in the Philippines!
I mean a literal skin care booster. FYI, Skin Care Boosters are becoming steadily popular nowadays. These products are typically in light serum form and designed to be mixed with almost all sorts of skin care products to boost any skin care regimen. How does it do that? By using one, golden ingredient, a Skin Booster upgrades regular products such as a plain, hydrating moisturizer and backs up targeted treatments such as serum. A Skin Booster could increase the efficacy of the products you are currently using.
Olay have released their very own booster called Olay Regenerist Miracle Booster Pre-Youth Essence. This light, watery serum is fast- absorbing and used after toning and before moisturizer/cream, thicker serums, and spot treatments (if any). It contains The Golden Amino Peptide, pal-KTTKS, and promises to boost your skin care routine and enhance your skin care products for skin that looks up to 10 years younger.
Care for another skin care hack? Use both the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre- Essence for double the anti-aging and skin renewal power. Olay said that you will see results in five days such as finer skin texture, lesser lines and wrinkles, and younger- looking skin overall when you use this #MiracleDuo. Now that’s what you call a #MiracleBoost!
So there goes my suggested ways to give your skin care regimen that much needed boost. As for the two Olay products, the cream is at P1,499.00 and the serum, at P1,399.00, and
they will be available starting
this May 2015 in Lazada they are available now in Lazada (the Miracle Booster is currently on introductory sale!), and soon, in all leading supermarkets, drugstores, and
department stores. Just go to OLAY PHILIPPINES on Facebook for more information
about this product.
