Does your skin need a little TLC after the busy holidays? Learn how to improve your skin with an easy three-step reset!
I don't know about you, but I'm still trying to get back into a consistent routine after the holidays.
One area I've been especially focused on is my skin. After lots of travel and indulging during the last couple months (December was a blur), I realized it was time to start taking better care of my skin.
My skin is looking better than ever after practicing an easy skin care routine, and it's so simple that I'm wondering why I didn't start sooner. I'm excited to share this easy reset with you so you can learn how to improve your skin, too!
How to Improve Your Skin: An Easy 3-Step Skincare Routine
Improving your skin is as simple as practicing a daily skin care routine, morning and night. If that sounds like a lot of work, then the good news is that you that you don't need a lot of time or products to do it.
You'll need three products for this easy three-step reset:
- Olay Daily Facials: my favorite cleansing cloths that remove makeup, hydrate, and exfoliate.
- Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream: a rich, hydrating cream that reduces puffiness and dark circles.
- Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream: a luxurious cream that will make your skin glow.
I love these three products, because they're affordable, easy to use, and they work! They're also easy to find. You can purchase all of these products on Olay's website.
Step One: Cleanse
The first step in this easy three-step reset is to cleanse your skin, morning and night.
It's so easy to get into the (bad) habit of falling asleep without washing your face during the holidays. Even a little leftover makeup can really dull your complexion, aggravate sensitive skin, and lead to acne though.
Olay Daily Facials make washing your face so easy, and they're so much more than a makeup remover. These little cloths are like a mini facial, removing makeup, cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating. No residue gets left behind, and they deliver a more complete clean than the leading makeup remover, micellar water, and liquid cleanser.
If you travel as much as I do, you'll also appreciate that Olay Daily Facials won't take up any precious space in your tiny liquids bag when trying to get through security. Which leaves more room for the next two products you'll need for your three-step reset!
Step Two: Eyes
Step two of your three-step reset is eyes. You're going to need a good eye cream.
A hydrating eye cream will keep your eyes looking bright and fresh, minimize dark circles and puffiness, and smooth the appearance of any fine lines. Use it morning and night, as well.
My favorite is Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream, a rich cream that's full of powerful vitamins and peptides that hydrate and smooth the under eye area. You'll notice the effects starting on the first day you use it, and it will continue to renew your skin’s surface over time.
This cream immediately reduces puffiness (my most nagging eye issue) and dark circles for a bright-eyed effect. I also love that it's formulated with Olay’s color-correcting technology; its slight tint acts as a touch of concealer to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Step Three: Moisturize
The last step to improve your skin is moisturizing. A good moisturizer will make a huge difference in your skin's texture and tone, especially during these dry winter months.
I've been using Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream, and I can see the effects as soon as I apply it. It makes my skin glow!
This luxurious, yet affordable, moisturizer hydrates skin better than high-end creams costing over $100, $200, and even $400. It's made with Carob Seed Extract, which provides hydration to aid in skin repair and regeneration.
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream immediately plumps skin for a naturally glowing complexion, so you'll notice results right away. But you'll see even more results over the course of a month, with increased hydration for soft, glowing skin by Day 7, visible results in texture and elasticity by Day 14, and noticeably reduced appearance of smile lines and fine lines under/around the eyes by Day 28.
Try it for 28 days. You'll love how your skin looks!
Now that I've updated my skin care routine, what are the results?
My skin looks and feels clearer, and my pesky under eye area looks refreshed and brighter. Plus, my skin is more hydrated and noticeably smoother.
I hope these easy skin care tips helped you learn how to improve your skin. Give it a try. I'd love to hear about your results! You can learn more about the #3StepReset here: http://spr.ly/Proof29.
