I've been so busy the last few months with launching a new business, blushco. Typically, when I am busy and stressed, self-care items are the first things that get knocked off my busy to-do list. But this time was different -- I made sure to still take that time to tend to my skin each and every day. Since discovering serums, I've noticed I'm way more likely to keep up with my skincare regime, even when I'm exhausted, as serums provide so many benefits with very little effort! I find with serums my skin stays hydrated without feeling heavy and weighed down.
I have been a big fan of Olay's Retinol24 collection for the past year so I was really excited to learn about the NEW Olay Serums formulated with Vitamin B3 (also known as Niacinamide) and either Peptides, Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid. If you aren’t familiar with the benefits of those ingredients, here is a quick overview of each:
Peptides are the building blocks of
proteins, like collagen and elastin.
They trigger new collagen
production, skin cell regeneration
and have been clinically proven to
reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C is a naturally occurring
antioxidant that helps protect skin
against damage from UV and
pollution. It has also been shown to
brighten and even skin tone and
Hyaluronic Acid is a moisture
magnet ingredient known to
regulate water within skin’s
surface cells, and to keep it
hydrated throughout the day.
When it comes to my routine, I apply Olay Deep Hydration Serum after I've removed makeup and cleansed my skin. My absolute favourite thing about adding hyaluronic acid into my routine with the Olay Deep Hydration Serum is how dewy and fresh my skin looks and feels. You know that glowy youthful look I'm talking about, right?! The best part is I know my serum is still working even when I've gone to sleep. And when I wake up in the morning, I have that fresh skin look that you thought you could only get from an Instagram filter!
Did you know that just one drop of Olay Serums has the power to renew one million skin cells? The new Olay Serums also have one of the brand’s shortest ingredient lists yet, and they are free of fragrance, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic dyes. I've been on a quest to ban these ingredients from my beauty routine so I was super excited to find out these serums don't have any of those ingredients!
My favounite thing about Olay Serums is they deliver quality ingredients at an affordable price point. The Olay serums work as well as prestige serums so they are an amazing “bang for your buck.” So, if you are like me and need a little help keeping your skin feeling hydrated and healthy, try the Olay Deep Hydration Serum today!
