LATE NIGHTS, LACK OF SLEEP, A NOT-SO-NUTRITIOUS DIET AND CELEBRATING WITH COCKTAILS CAN ALL
TAKE THEIR TOLL ON YOUR SKIN.

Here are the skin-damage-control strategies you need to help survive
the party season…


SILLY SEASON SLIP-UP#1: LATE NIGHTS AND LACK OF SLEEP

When it comes to your skin, you snooze, you win. It’s no secret that sleep is ‘gold’ for skin health, because your body isn’t spending precious resources counteracting UV rays, pollution, and other external aggressors. Sleep also helps with immunity and cell regeneration, which is what gives you bright, radiant skin. The lack of sleep shows up quickly – under-eye circles, dull skin tone, and lines and wrinkles may look worse than usual as a result. This time of the year, we know it’s virtually impossible to get the recommended eight hours a night, but don’t panic…

Damage Control: Thankfully you can ‘fake’ a full night’s beauty sleep. After the success of the Olay Miracle Duo (Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence and Micro-Sculpting Cream), Olay Regenerist has introduced the Overnight Miracle. Olay’s MDE (Multi—Decade and Ethnicity) study decoded the skin’s natural rhythm. Combined with the common knowledge that DNA repair is more active at night, Olay developed the Overnight Miracle regime to work with the skin’s daily repair rhythm so that it performs at its youthful peak. When the Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence is combined with Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Night Cream, skin renewal and repair is maximised for firmer, plumper skin with less visible wrinkles. Absolute perfection for the party season!

EXTRA TIP: Remember to thoroughly cleanse before applying your Olay Overnight Miracle regimen.

SILLY SEASON SLIP-UP#2: CELEBRATING WITH CHAMPAGNE & COCKTAILS

Alcohol is a diuretic—and not only does it dehydrate your body (hello, hangover), it dehydrates your skin too. Your body is so busy trying to process the alcohol that it diverts oxygen and nutrients away from your skin, making it harder to recover and causing dehydration. Dried-out skin doesn’t have that plump, glowy look, and can appear more lined than usual. Plus dehydration affects the protective moisture barrier, making skin more vulnerable to irritation (particularly if you’re prone to redness), so even your makeup can’t restore your glow. Ouch!

Damage Control: Enlist nurturing and anti-ageing ingredients with clever delivery systems. The Overnight Miracle ticks all these boxes with key actives including: Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Olive extract (Olivem), Amino Peptides, Dill Seeds Extract (Lys’Lastine), Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerol. Using the products together delivers results from the first day of use, visibly reducing pores and improving texture and radiance. The Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence boosts skin energy and allows it to absorb more anti-ageing ingredients, so it’s your first step in both day and night routines.

EXTRA TIP: Choose cocktails with less mixers, and always try to drink a glass of water between alcoholic beverages. Drink a huge glass of water before bed too!

SILLY SEASON SLIP-UP#3: SUGAR OVERLOAD

Okay, we all know that sugar is bad news for your skin. When the body breaks down sugar, it creates a molecule in the process called ‘Advanced Glycation End Product’ (ironically, referred to as AGEs). AGEs literally bind themselves to parts of your skin, cause structural damage and affect your circulation making it look dull and sallow. Or, in the case of collagen, it affects the elasticity of your skin and making it look thinner and more prone to lines and wrinkles. So, sorry to say, during the holiday months {when sugar cravings hit an all-time high}, your skin might look saggy, more wrinkled, and all-around worse for the wear.

Damage Control: It’s Christmas, so we’re not going to say ‘ban all sugar’. Instead, just be more aware of how much you’re eating, and be skincare-wise. Olay’s Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence boosts skin energy and actively allows the skin to absorb more anti-ageing ingredients deep within the layers of your skin.

EXTRA TIP: Remember to extend your Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence, Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Night Cream all the way down your neck, massaging it in with deep strokes, to help keep your jawline, neck and décolletage looking younger.

TRIED & TESTED:

Why we love it: The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Night Cream was designed after constant consumer feedback requesting an alternative to thick, gloopy night creams. It has all the key anti-ageing ingredients of Regenerist range but has been formulated with a lightweight gel-like texture that quickly absorbs without leaving a greasy feel for skin that feels plump and hydrated through the night.
Need-to-know info: The Overnight Miracle regimen feels and smells amazing, and really works. It doesn’t cost a bomb and delivers amazing results, we saw a huge difference after just one week.
We especially love the results around the neck and jawline.
