Challenges of a mom
I’m a first time mom to a very energetic 6-month old baby. I’m sure moms out there can agree on the different challenges we, moms, have to face on a daily basis. One challenge I dread the most is — lack of sleep! It could definitely age our skin faster. So in order to fully attend to my baby’s needs, in order to take care of him, I ensure I take care of my well-being first. One way I do that is I take care of my skin. As they say, “when you look good, you feel good“.
Our skin cells regenerate as we sleep so it’s important to make the most out of the time our skin “rests” by treating our skin to a nightly skin care regimen. This is why it’s called “beauty sleep”.
That’s why I took the #5NightsChallenge with Olay Regenerist.
Olay Regenerist Overnight Ritual consists of two Olay products: Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost.
In five nights, the duo promises skin renewal making skin hydrated, radiant, firmer and lifted. Essentially making skin youthfully beautiful.
I used the Olay duo for five consecutive nights. After cleansing and toning, I applied Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence and then applied the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream moisturizer after. I concentrated on my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, massaging my face in an upward motion.
Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-essence is a light serum-like essence. It melts on my skin and is totally fast-absorbing. It basically preps the skin for fast absorption and boosts the efficacy of the skin care. Next is Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream moisturizer which renews, firms and lifts the skin. Since it moisturizes the skin making it plump, it minimizes the look of wrinkles. And since I have oily skin, I only used very little product, and it goes a long way.
My observation and effects
After the first night I tried it, I noticed that my skin has redness and is plump. On the second day, it’s gotten better. No more redness but it was itchy on my nose, forehead and cheeks. Third day, I had micro-peeling but definitely healthier looking skin. I had rosy cheeks! Fourth day, no more micro-peeling. I noticed my skin was more radiant and healthy-looking. On the fifth day though, I developed some zits. I believe it’s somewhat of a normal reaction when you are trying a new product plus, since I have oily skin, I think the cream-type moisturizer had something to do with it.
In conclusion albeit some skin reactions, I love the Olay Regenerist for moisturizing my skin, making it more radiant and healthy looking.
