I actually enjoy many parts of winter. It’s a reminder to slow down and allow for certain habits or rituals to figuratively and literally die. And just at the moment when I’m totally over the cold weather (like now!) spring time arrives! I often wonder what it’d be like to live in a part of the country that doesn’t experience extreme weather changes. Do they, do you, follow a similar path of spring cleaning and hibernation?
While Nashville winters aren’t as extreme as Chicago winters, from my childhood, I still experience effects from the lack of humidity and use of central heat. Both of which aren’t kind to my skin.
I’m in my thirties, so I’ve been spending time gaining more knowledge about skin care. I recently found out central heating reduces air humidity to the same moisture content as the Sahara Desert. That’s 20-25% humidity! No wonder wintertime causes so many skin problems.
Olay recently added Olay Whips to their collection. Why do many consider Olay Whips to be the unicorn of moisturizers? Let me tell you!
Moisturize Differently with New Technology
Active rush technology allows for a unique formulation which holds more moisture. It’s not about how heavy a moisturizer feels in your hands if it’s only sitting on top of your skin creating a greasy film. Olay Whips provide instant absorption by immediately releasing hydration on contact. Thicker creams don’t always deliver more moisture. There is also zero lag time between putting on my moisturizer and starting my make up – it sinks in so fast!
I’ve been using the Luminous from the Olay Whips collection for several weeks now. I want my skin care products to do a little more than provide basic hydration. The lightweight formula moisturizes while evening out my skin tone and minimizing the appearance of pores. My breakouts are happening far less frequently, but I still have a lot of acne scars. It’s often a slow process to heal old acne scars.
I appreciate how Olay constantly researches and formulates new products to service us no matter our skin care needs.
