For weeks now, I’ve been joking with you about the types of moms in quarantine on stories. I’m the “self-care mom.” Every few hours I walk up to my bathroom and put on a new serum or face oil. And I start every day with Olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 40.
Because I might as well emerge from quarantine with great skin, know what I mean?!
I know many times self-care seems like a bubble-in-the-sky expectation of a long bath with champagne & candles. That’s NOT WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!
Self-care. It seems to be something everyone brags about. I used to feel inferior because I definitely didn’t always have time to apply body lotion after a shower or take an hour long relaxing bubble bath. I was always comparing my own routine to others that I saw online.
But how many of us truly have enough time for a proper self-care routine everyday? Most of us are lucky to get a few spritzes of dry shampoo on some days, and I’m not afraid to admit it anymore! I’m a dry shampoo quick body-shower mama because sometimes that’s just as good as it gets.
To me, self-care is taking a few moments, however short they may be, to do something nice for myself
I’ve struggled with melasma for 15 years now, so self-care for me is putting on @olay Regenerist Whip with SPF 40 every morning. Its non-greasy & super blendable, so I can go right back to teaching at home or creating content without a white face.
And even though I’m mostly indoors right now, sunscreen is a must, every day. UVA / UVB rays are inside your house & car too! I haven’t worked this hard to minimize my melasma only for the sun to bright it RIGHT BACK!
I recently had my 40th birthday and most of you were very surprised, they’d never known I was reaching 40. I attribute that to the way I take care of my skin, which is something I pride myself on. Your skin is so important and protecting it is a MUST, that’s why I use Olay
And since I’m 40 now, I’m VERY FOCUSED on preventing more wrinkles and sun damage. SPF is a MUST to keep my skin looking young and supple.
Olay knows it’s the small moments that can make a real impact on your self-care routine. The biggest form of self-care? SPF. Many of my friends skip SPF because they lack time in the morning. Let’s be real, it can be a pain. I’m juggling a million things in the morning and the last thing I’m thinking of is myself. Not only do you need to take time to blend it in, but usually it appears greasy and doesn’t mix well with your makeup. I totally get it, but Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 40 has a formula that solves these issues, so it’s super easy to incorporate SPF into your daily routine.
There’s no greasy or sticky feeling. It’s lightweight, breathable, and has a smooth matte finish so you can put your makeup right on top without worrying! There’s no icky residue, which is a huge pet peeve of mine with other SPF products. It has Amino-Peptide Complex II, so it hydrates to improve your skin’s elasticity and firms your skin for a lifted look. Not only are you protecting your skin, but you’re helping yourself look and feel your best. Hello 40!
So, let’s be honest, we’re not always going to put ourselves first, but we can do something small and make a big difference with Olay Regenerist Whip SPF 40. Protecting your skin doesn’t need to feel like another chore in your morning routine, and your skin will thank you for it.
