Who wants to time travel to stop COVID from ever becoming a thing? I know we all do!!! If only we could, I know we all would try to stop this virus that has halted our lives for almost two years already. The past 18 months since lockdowns started in the Philippines have been so stressful for us all in all sorts of ways, and now the looming election season is also yet another source of stress as we’re preoccupied with anxiety for the future. As of late, I’ve been told that my forehead has been becoming more and more prone to wrinkling, so I guess that’s the pandemic stress showing.
Olay also cannot help us time travel, but Olay can simply help us recover and move forward from the skin stress this entire pandemic has caused us all. Say hello to Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide 24! There has long been lots of hype in the beauty industry about collagen as it’s what keeps skin plump, but something new I found out is that apparently, collagen production can already slow down by 15-30% in as early as our 40’s! This is why it’s important to get started on maintaining our collagen supply as early as possible.
While there are already many collagen products in the market, what Olay is proud to announce is that Olay Collagen Peptide 24 is able to penetrate deeper into the skin. If you will observe, a lot of product releases brag about how much collagen is packed into the product, but ultimately, if the skin will not be able to deeply absorb the collagen, it’s not going to lead to the end results we’re hoping for. Depth of absorption is the key––this is what Olay’s skin scientists have discovered.
For this new release, there are three easy steps to bouncier skin. Here’s the routine:
Olay Collagen Peptide 24 Serum (Php1999 for 30mL) works to jumpstart the routine by lightly penetrating 10 layers of the epidermis and nourishing the skin with collagen and niacinamide. This lightweight emulsion hybrid serum gets absorbed quickly to hydrate the skin up to 10 layers of the epidermis and to prepare the skin for the cream.
For deep hydration and a drastic plumping of the skin, the next step is Olay Collagen Peptide 24 Moisturizer (Php1999 for 50g). This also has the same collagen and niacinamide benefits as the other products in the collection, but it’s the cream that truly locks in the moisture into the skin and penetrates deeply with the key ingredients. Thankfully, with all the Olay creams I have reviewed or encountered throughout the years, this also has a lightweight texture that can work in our very hot climate.
3. Eye Cream
I’m guessing that with all the squinting we’ve had to do with all our online meetings and with all the online work we’ve had to do, the crow’s feet and micro wrinkles have started earlier than we had hoped! While Olay can’t get rid of the pandemic, it can get rid of the early signs of aging by plumping up the eye area. Olay Collagen Peptide 24 Eye Cream (Php1999 for 15mL) is designed to be lightly applied on the eye area after using the face cream as an added step towards plump skin.
