YOU’RE DOING ANTI-AGING WRONG If You’re Not Using This Ingredient

When it comes to skincare, anti-aging is something that’s been at the top of mind for a while now. I’ve been really conscious of preventative anti-aging skincare since I was younger, but now that I’m closer to my mid 30’s, it’s starting to get real. 

A huge part of my job is being able to try and test out different products, so I’m so excited to have teamed up with Olay to share my review on their new Retinol24 Collection

What Is Retinol?

If you’ve never heard of retinol, it’s basically the hero of anti-aging! It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, promote cell turnover, stimulates the production of new blood vessels to help with skin coloring, improves texture and helps overall collagen production.

While a lot of retinol products are usually on the pricier side, I’m so excited that Olay has introduced their Retinol24 line to the market!

I’ve tried all of the Retinol 24 products but have totally fallen in love with the Night Serum! After just one use, my skin already looked and felt brighter and softer, so I was so excited to continue using it to see how much my skin would like it. For the last few weeks, I’ve been using it every night to see how the serum has worked on my skin over time, and I’m so happy with the results!

The first thing I noticed about the serum was how smooth it felt going onto my skin. It felt silky and smooth, and I loved that it fit perfectly into my skincare routine! Plus, if you’re new to retinol, these products are on the gentler side, so they’re the perfect first step into using the ingredient.

My Thoughts

As I said before, I’m already such a huge fan of retinol, but I’ve been so impressed with Olay’s Retinol 24 line. The serum made my skin feel amazing, and after a few weeks of using it consistently, my skin has been looking bright and feeling SO smooth. I could especially tell a difference around my eyes and nose- my skin felt softer and looked radiant.

While I mainly focused on the serum, both the moisturizer and eye cream are also great ways to incorporate retinol into your skincare routine!

HOW MUCH RETINOL CAN YOU USE?

I get this question a lot. A general rule to follow is to avoid using retinol products when you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. Beyond that, the main thing to look for is what ingredients the retinol is formulated with because the amount of retinol doesn’t matter so much as the way it’s combined with other ingredients. Olay’s formula is stable and potent from the moment you open it to the very last drop.

Olay’s formula for their Retinol 24 products are made with vitamin B3 plus retinoid complex to hydrate better than the other retinol products on the market!

So, have you started using retinol in your skincare yet? Drop a comment down below and let me know! Another big thanks to Olay for teaming up with me for this post!
