Olay White Radiance Range | Review

 

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to share my review of the White Radiance range from Olay which is the brightening range from the brand. Olay is a very trusted name in skincare and I’m a big fan of their moisturizers and serums. Previously, I’ve reviewed their Total Effects range as well as their Regenerist range. While the previously reviewed ranges were aimed at ageing at different stages, the White Radiance range targets dark spots and uneven skin tone by boosting the metabolism of the skin cells. Apart from improving skin tone, it also helps in repairing the skin barrier which leads to better moisture retention by the skin. The result is radiant skin that looks healthy and has a natural, pearly glow. The range contains 5 products which I’ve been trying out since over 4 weeks now. Here are my thoughts –

How to get Radiant, Glowing Skin!

 

Everybody loves glowing, radiant skin and the key to achieving naturally beautiful skin is good lifestyle and skincare choices. I’ve shared some of my tips below along with some skincare that I’ve been using since the past few months to achieve even and healthy looking skin.

Diet & Exercise

Diet : Three words – Fluids, Fibre and Fats! My skin is at its best when I drink 2.5-3 liters of water daily and make sure to include a fair amount of fruit and salad servings in my daily intake. Water and fibre together help in flushing out toxins from the body which reflects on the skin. And lastly, healthy sources of fat like nuts, olive oil, sunflower oil and seeds and avocados provide essential fatty acids which are required by the skin to maintain a healthy skin barrier and glow.

Exercise : This one is a no-brainer and we all know that regular exercise is the key to a healthy body and that includes the skin as well! Exercise boosts circulation, leads to better delivery of nutrients around the body and I’m sure you’ve noticed the healthy flush your skin acquires after a good workout session! So start including a brisk walk or a quick jog in your daily routine to get naturally, glowing skin.

Best Moisturizers for Combination-Oily Skin | Skincare Review

 

Ever since I started taking care of my skin, its been a challenge to find the perfect moisturizer for oily skin. For the longest time, I did not even realise that my oily skin needed a moisturizer. Many women are under the misconception that if they have oily skin, they do not need moisturizer. The truth is, everyone needs moisturizer, you just need the texture and formula suited for your skin type! Moisture/Hydration is different from oil/sebum and if your skin is oily, it doesn’t imply that it is hydrated. Low levels of moisture in the skin leads to overproduction of oil, as the skin tries to compensate for the lack of water. To maintain healthy, balanced skin, its important to hydrate the skin and not strip it dry.

Oily skinned people need to use light-weight moisturizers in the form of lotions, emulsions or gels and should stay away from heavier creams which may clog the pores and lead to pimples and blackheads. My skin oscillates between combination and oily and every once in a while, I get a few angry breakouts that refuse to budge for days. So I’ve tested out a boat load of moisturizers over the past few months and compiled this list of oily skin-friendly moisturizers. I hope you will find this compilation helpful!
