As a licensed Master Esthetician (going on 14 years), I am religious about my skin care regimen. Hello, I’m turning 32 this year, so there is NO way I’m leaving my skin’s future to chance or genetics. Because I’ve seen the power and results of being consistent with a good skincare routine, I am a HUGE advocate for washing my face and moisturizing it with professional quality products day and night. My two main goals are #1 keep my skin protected from sun damage by using a powerful SPF every morning and #2 hydrate my skin every evening. Friends, genetics do play a big part in skincare, but you can’t really control that. What you can do (and control) is how you care for your skin, so listen up while I share my best practices a new found favorite!
Moisturizer is the number one way to prevent aging (make sure you’re using an SPF in the morning) and you don’t have to spend a lot of money to accomplish that! #winwin
Look for a moisturizer that:
  • Is going to fit easily into your existing regimen. If it’s too complicated you won’t do it!
  • That leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, with a matte finish (I like Olay Whips for this very reason)
  • Use two different creams, AM and PM. Your AM moisturizer should have an SFP, to be used in the morning and a non-SPF moisturizer to use in the evening. The active ingredients in the PM moisturizer have youth-restoring benefits, can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will work better at night on clean, makeup-free skin. So whether you’re looking for smoothness and firmness, tone perfection or overall nourishment, Olay has you covered.
  • Also, this moisturizer doubles as an AMAZING primer for makeup, so there is one less thing to buy!

It’s uniquely formulated with Active Rush Technology™ to hold and quickly release 1,000x its weight in hydration and active ingredients, Olay Whips transform from cream to liquid on contact, flash absorbing into the skin. This stuff feels like silk!Okay, I know that sometimes professional products can be WAY out of the budget, I get it. We have been back on our budget this year and sometimes it’s hard to pick and choose (or even know what is worth spending your money on for the best results). But here’s the great news, Olay Whips are formulated differently to work and feel differently, so you don’t have to break the bank to take care of your skin. Just know that you’re getting a quality product, formulated with advanced Amino-Peptide Complex II to regenerate surface cells, that WILL leave you wanting more. But you’ll have to use some self-control, you don’t want to waste it!So here is my easy winter PM skincare routine, that ANYONE could follow:

  • I start by washing off all of my makeup with a gentle glycolic foaming cleanser. Often times I use a wet washcloth to help get all of the makeup off and pat dry with a towel.
  • Then I apply 3-5 drops of a vitamin A, C & E serum to my face and neck.
  • I follow that with an eye cream, applied underneath and on top of my eyelids.
  • I finish with a pea-sized amount of Olay Whips moisturizer (I love the powerful wrinkle results without heaviness), using a little more if needed and finishing with any extra applied down my neck.

What are your best tips or favorite Olay products for quality skincare on a budget?

I found my Olay Whips Face Moisturizer while doing my grocery shopping at Smith’s on the beauty aisle. But you can find yours at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store!
