This blog post is created in partnership with Olay. However, all thoughts and opinion are my own (as always.)
I am not a cold-weather person for many reasons. In fact years ago when deciding on the next steps in my career development, the term “Good Weather” is right up there, even above essentials like “Great fashion stores” and “Amazing culture and people.”
So I moved to Los Angeles. But even in LA - renowned for beautiful weather all year around, I am not immune to dry weather woes. It’s no secret that cold weather sucks the moisture out of the skin, which often results in a dry and flaky complexion. So when temperatures plummet in LA—and as I type this I am bundled up in the thickest wool sweater ever—my winter moisturizers is always no farther than an arm-reach away.
Get winter ready - dress warm … and moisturize well
The thing is not all moisturizers are equal and so many claim to soften and hydrate our skin during winter, when in truth they just make us feel greasy. And greasy does not always mean it’s working. In fact, if it’s only sitting on top of the skin, then your skin isn’t absorbing the moisturizer well. And I can’t stress how much I hate greasy moisturizers - my skin is very oily by nature and anything greasy makes my skin look like an oil slick.
The texture is super-light yet it gives great hydration effectively.
The Olay Regenerist Whip tends to be different. Blended with Amino-Peptide Complex II to regenerate collagen and reduce wrinkles, this moisturizer absorbs quickly and makes my skin feel firm and smooth to the touch. It’s all thanks to the Active Rush Technology used in Olay Whips, which makes the Regenerist (and other Whips) pack a powerful hydration punch in such a lightweight formulation. Releasing 1000x its weight in hydration, Whips instantly absorbs into the skin. Again, just because your moisturizer feels heavy or greasy does not mean your skin is getting the moisture it needs.
Diminish fine lines and wrinkles by moisturizing daily and consistently.
Lightweight and heavily hydrating, Regenerist is a rare find—Olay calls it the unicorn of all moisturizers, and I think it fits! In fact, I’m eager to use this all the way through to summer—and you know the product is awesome when you look forward to using it.
With all that, I’m curious about your skincare regimen. What are your winter skin problems? Have you tried an Olay Whips product yet and what did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!
