NATURE OR NURTURE? THE SECRETS OF GREAT SKIN REVEALED

Whenever people comment on my good skin, my first response is that I get it from my mama. I most definitely take care of my skin, but I am also one of those lucky ladies whose mum looks like my sister. Having said that, I have also always been diligent with my skin care regime… which my mama also instilled in me- thanks ma!

So, what is the secret to a youthful complexion? Nature, nurture or a combination of both?

Olay has just released the results of over 10 years of ground-breaking research which set out to answer the ultimate beauty question:  Does our DNA predetermine skin ageing, and if so does that mean some women are just out of luck?

The study found that although almost 10% of women naturally look 10 years younger because of their DNA, unique gene activity, and skin care habits; you don’t just need the luck of good genes to have exceptionally youthful looking skin.

How you treat your skin is what matters the most-  lifestyle choices AND what you put on your skin really does make a difference.

Based on these results, Olay scientists tested over 25,000 ingredients, only selecting the top 1% to create the breakthrough formulation that makes up their anti-ageing collection.

I have been using Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Brightening Cream Cleanser, Luminous Tone Perfecting Treatment & Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream every day for the last 21 days. These products have been proven to transform skin in 28 days. My skin didn’t need transforming as such, but I do have skin concerns-  hydration (hello breastfeeding); wrinkles around my eyes (all those damn faces I pull at the babies!); and a few sun spots (hello solariums 2001!)

The Pearl-Optics Complex within the reformulated Olay Regenerist Luminous products has visibly improved my skin’s brightness and evened my skin tone already.

It only took a few days to notice a dewier glow and by 2 weeks my dark spots are definitely fading and my skin tone looks more even. Even my hubby commented on my “glow” via FaceTime while he was overseas. Now after 16 days of solo parenting on little to no sleep, that’s definitely a win!
