Meet the new face of Olay India

 

Hi everyone! Olay India has a new face and its one we are all very familiar with. Kajol makes a return as the face of Olay this year and earlier this week, I attended a session with her and Dr. Jaishree Sharad who is a well-known celebrity dermatologist. As a long time user of Olay Total Effects, Kajol expressed her love for the brand and its products, and also shared some of her favorite tips for beautiful skin. I’m sharing some of the insights shared by Dr. Jaishree and Kajol’s own inputs about skincare and anti-ageing below.

 

New face of Olay India - Kajol

 

  • Our skin starts changing somewhere around our mid-20s. These changes are accelerated by daily stresses, pollution, unhealthy lifestyle and other aggressors. One must notice the subtle changes to the skin in order to identify the early signs of ageing – wrinkles, dry skin, dull and uneven skin tone, dark spots and open pores.
  • A basic routine of cleansing, moisturizing and protecting your skin goes a long way in maintaining healthy skin. But to target the early signs of ageing, you need to include a gentle anti-ageing product in your routine that targets dryness, dullness and uneven skin tone. Olay Total Effects range is designed to address the first signs of ageing and it works so effectively because of its multi- vitamin complex, VitaNiacin; a unique patented combination of Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Pro-vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, specifically formulated to help strengthen skin’s moisture barrier.
  • Kajol’s top two tips for maintaining healthy, youthful skin – cleansing well before bedtime and drinking a minimum of 2.5 litres of water each day. She also talked about the importance of sun protection, something she hoped she had known when she was younger.

Videos This Week

 

Hi everyone! I hope you had a good week! Here is a recap of the videos that went up on my YouTube channel this week. Still in the spirit of Diwali festivities, I uploaded 2 tutorials – one is a soft, day time look where I’ve also shown a step-by-step skin care routine using Aviance Hydra Balance range. Starting with the soothing and fresh Cleansing Gel from the range, I cleansed my face and then used the Serum for deep reaching hydration and the Day Creme for instant nourishment and a dewy finish. Watch my video embedded below to see the full routine on how to prep you skin before makeup application.

In the second video, I’ve shown the look I wore on Diwali evening. Its a fairly simple look with emphasis on the eyes in the form of metallic gold eye shadow, paired with a neutral warm lip. Next, keeping up with new launches, I’ve swatched all the shades of the new Nykaa Floral Carnival collection for you. Its a gorgeous collection and if you’re a fan of pinks, purples and deeper rouge tones, do check it out. And lastly, since the last DIY video was so well-received and I got several requests for dry skin remedies, I’ve done a DIY Moisturizing Scrub-Mask that can help you achieve soft, smooth, moisturized skin this winter!

Forest Essentials Deeply Nourishing Facial Cleansing Paste | Review

 

Hi everyone! Sorry for lack of posts since the past two weeks. My old (and very well used!) Sony DSLR camera broke down and I was unable to take any new pictures. I considered taking using pictures from my iPhone but having used a DSLR for so long, I just didn’t like how the images from the phone turned out. Last week I ordered the new Canon 80D which finally arrived earlier this week and I’m so relieved to have a working camera with me again! The camera is great (though it’ll take me some time to learn to get the most out of it) and these are the first batch of product pictures I took today for the review.
