The dry summer weather kicks my skins butt. From days laying by the pool, to just an overall drier season, I struggle with keeping my skin hydrated. I wanted to share a few easy tips I use throughout the summer to keep my skin hydrated that have worked for me.
First, make sure you have removed all of your makeup off your face. Then I take a moisturizing bath (there are tons of oils, etc you can try out) at least once a week. Next, once your pores are open from soaking in the hot bath use, this opportunity to use your favorite hydrating mask.
Once you wash off your mask, finish with a heavier moisturizer (I like to alternate moisturizer based on season). I recently have been trying the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. I have been looking for a moisturizer that will both hydrate and help prevent aging. Let’s be honest, once I turned 30 I very quickly started to see changes in my skin’s firmness.
An independent test by the Good Housekeeping Institute showed that Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream outperforms 10 top prestige creams, including one with a $440 price tag.
The Good Housekeeping Institute’s Beauty Lab conducted clinical and blinded consumer studies, where scientists collected more than 10,000 hydration measurements and Olay rose to the top.
Fast-Acting: At the three-hour mark, Olay moisturized 400% better than a cream nearly 18 times its price and beat all other products tested.
Long-Lasting Hydration: Olay increased moisture by 50% on average over a 24-hour period.
Lightweight Texture: In blind comparisons, consumers preferred Olay 80% of the time over expensive creams, reporting that it felt “rich” without being heavy.
Firming & Plumping Ingredients: Formulated with powerhouse ingredients like niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, Olay improved skin’s texture by 10% in four weeks.
Lastly, don’t forget to be drinking lots of water. This is something I am not so great at and have been using an app to remind me.
