Younger Looking Skin In 28 Days

Beautiful, soft, young looking skin is something we always want, but as we head into the holiday season (and face reunions, parties, and large holiday get-togethers with people we haven’t seen since last year) we especially want to look terrific. I took the #Olay28Day Challenge by applying Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream all over my face and neck every morning and evening after washing it, as well as Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream twice daily around my eyes, and continued this routine daily for almost 28 days.

To be honest, I was motivated. I recently saw pictures of myself with my family at my son’s birthday party and noticed that my smile lines around my eyes were just a little too crinkly, and those lines around my mouth were getting deeper. I want to have dewy, soft, beautiful skin for as long as possible, and hydration is important to maintain younger looking skin, so a little beauty challenge was just what I needed! I shared my results during the 28 days on Instagram, starting with the photo that inspired me to start the challenge in the first place a few days after I started:

I added an update almost two weeks into the challenge, when I had been using both the Olay Micro Sculpting Cream and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream twice daily – around my eyes, all over my face, and on my neck:

I am well into the #Olay28Day Challenge and already noticing a softening of the lines around my eyes and mouth. I apply @Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream all over my face and neck every morning and evening after I wash it, and Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream twice daily just around my eyes. I feel that my skin looks more hydrated and supple… what do you think?

I am now almost at the end of the Olay 28 Day Challenge, so I wanted to share all the details of my journey. Within the first week the lines around my eyes noticeably softened as the skin plumped up with the hydration from the Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream, and my face appeared smoother and younger-looking after applying Olay Micro Sculpting Cream. I typically don’t mind a smile line, but mine had been getting pretty deep, and I could still see them after I stopped smiling. Luckily, these have softened up and people have been noticing. My skin feels softer and smoother and I love smiling more now.

Olay is a trusted name in beauty, a worldwide leader in skin care that many of us were familiar with growing up. While I participated in the challenge, I was surprised to learn many of my (great-looking) friends were already fans and used Olay. Others were looking for a beauty regimen to start them on the path to younger-looking skin, because just like my surprise at those birthday photos where I discovered more wrinkles than I remembered, they recently had their own “moment in the mirror” where they realized the years were passing and they were neglecting their beauty. Deep smile lines and new gray hairs can do that to you!

The Olay 28 Day Challenge is almost over for me, and here is my latest photo:
