Though I am blessed with Asian genes, I’m convinced that stress and lack of sleep wreaks havoc on my skin. My strategy is to prevent now. It’s easier (and cheaper) to prevent now than correct later.
One of my favorite skincare brands is Olay. Bigger company = bigger budget for R&D. I also don’t want to make my way to the higher-end products too fast. The products are relatively cheap so I liberally slather it on the face and décolletage area at night. And you can get it cheaper through promotions! Olay currently has a $20 off $50 rebate on their website for all Olay facial cleansers, moisturizers, and treatments purchased through January 31st. I’ve gotten rebate checks from them in the past, so they are legit.
Where to buy:
I usually buy Olay from Amazon because they sell below retail. Prices fluctuate; I add them to my cart and check back periodically. I also get free two-day shipping through Amazon Prime. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, shipping is free for purchases over $25. Costco would work too.
- The rebate is a great deal for the Pro-X and Regenerist lines.
- I am a fan of their new Regenerist Resurfacing Elixir ($22.95 from $29.99), the Regenerist Serum, the Regenerist Eye Serum ($12.49 from $22.99). I had my eye on the Regenerist Micro-sculpting Serum, but the Elixir won me over with the glycolic acid.
- I’ve been using the Olay Complete Defense Daily UV moisturizer sunscreen for years.
