Some people just look 10 years younger than their age. It’s easy to say it’s thanks to their genetics, but really there’s a lot to it than just that. If you’re one of those who struggle with looking exactly or even older than your actual age, you would be surprised to know that there’s a number of reasons contributing to this than sheer “genetics luck.”
Olay Philippines recently conducted a study and discovered that the primary cause for skin ageing is the absence of protection from free radicals. This is why Olay has re-engineered their most loved products to counter the effects of ageing. So maybe you’re not the lucky one, but you do have a say on how slow your skin should age.
Recently, Olay Philippines launched their newest products with ingredients that will help you achieve the skin that you’ve been dreaming of. In the event, they had a Luck Maker Lab where you can see which areas of your skin you should be paying more attention to. I had hyper-pigmentation on some areas of my face so to lessen this, Olay recommended me their Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream. With Olay, you can definitely make your own luck.
We also had the chance of meeting Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach and ABS-CBN Chief Content Officer Charo Santos-Concio who both shared their unique ways on how they make their own luck. While life may be rough at times, it’s very important to keep your chin up and keep working hard no matter what. Bad luck strikes and when you’re at rock bottom, the only way you can go is up.
Charo Santos-Concio also shared that she and her mother have been using Olay for many years now, attesting to the brand’s long-term effects on the skin. She also mentioned that the most important beauty tip her mother gave her was to always moisturize. It’s her secret to making skin look and feel young and fresh!
During the event we were able to test Olay’s newest products against different free radicals. One of the interesting tests was checking the moisture in the Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream. The paper with the brightest pink indicates the presence of moisture, and compared to an unknown brand we tested with the Olay Regenerist, Olay performed a lot better.
We also tested the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Day Cream by dropping some iodine in water on one beaker, and in another beaker with water mixed with the Olay product. The one without the product turned a mustard yellow, indicating that there is no protection against free radicals. The one with the Olay only turned a pale yellow despite how many drops of iodine we put in!
I’ve only started using Olay a few days ago after including them in my now-10-step skincare routine and I’m already seeing results! My face has never felt this smooth consistently throughout the day and some of my dark spots have lightened! Olay really is a holy grail brand for a long time now and I think the previous generations can attest to that.
So when someone asks you after a few years why you look a lot younger than you really are, is it your DNA or is it Olay?
