In the next few weeks, everyone is going to be making appointments to get haircuts, manicures, and doctors appointments. Don’t forget to schedule that dermatologist appointment too! I remember going to the dermatologist every year growing up with my mom because of my acne. I would walk out of his office with a dozen prescriptions including a prescription for Retinol. My mom told me that one day when I was older, I would wish I could get Retinol for free with a prescription because of all of the wonderful things it could do for the skin. Retinol is known for reducing fine lines, improving skin tone and reducing pore size. After a year hunched over a laptop working with very little sunshine, my face needed all of the help it could get! These days there are so many products that have Retinol in them but some can be pricey and some are just not as good as what you can get from a dermatologist. Olay is a brand I have trusted for a long time so I decided to try the Olay Retinol 24 night moisturizer and see what would happen. Since most days I don’t leave the house and when I do, it’s not worth putting on makeup, I wanted my skin to look good enough where I wouldn’t need to wear makeup. Over time, I noticed that my skin looked clearer, less splotchy and looked good enough without foundation. I. was most excited about my skin texture and my acne wasn’t as red and went away faster than usual when I was using the Olay Retinol 24 moisturizer at night. For full transparency, I want to admit that my skin is very sensitive which is why I could never use the prescription Retinol because it would irritate my skin. With the Olay Retinol 24 moisturizer, I didn’t notice any irritation, but to be safe, I alternated wearing it every other night with a super moisturizing night time cream and the Olay Retinol 24 moisturizer. It gave me the same desired affect I was looking for and was able to get more use out of the jar.
I leave the jar on my bathroom sink so I can easily apply the cream to my face, neck and chest when I get out of the shower before bed. It takes two seconds to give my skin the nutrients it needs to look healthy and looking great without any makeup!
