Trying to determine which one (or more) of the wrinkle and eye creams to choose can be a little over whelming. Each product line focuses on not only a different type of skin but the different stages of aging as well.
Most younger 20 somethings wouldn’t begin thinking about anti-aging products. Honestly at that age getting older and having wrinkles are not something high on the priority list. However, the better we take care of our skin when we are younger, the less we are going to have to try to “reverse the aging process” when we are older.
The Pro-X line is perfect for the 20-40 crowd. Unfortunately some of us still have blemish or acne issues at that age. Whether we like discussing it or not, many times our monthly visitor brings unsightly blemishes. This is also a time where we have a tendency to spend a lot of time worshiping the sun gods.
That beautifully, bronzed, sun-kissed body is something we actively try to achieve. While doing so, we rarely think about the long term damage the sun can do to our skin. This is also the time that those scary fine lines and crow’s feet start making an appearance.
By using the products Olay offers for younger skin we can ensure that we are properly hydrated, have the perfect combination of vitamins, minerals and moisturizers that will help to fight off aging at a later date.
Normally women will start seriously thinking about anti-aging products once the menopause cycle starts. By now we have started losing some of the elasticity that keeps our skin smooth and taught.
Olay has a series of wrinkle and eye creams that focus on “mature skin.” That is the industry code word for menopausal women. These creams are normally a little heavier because the focus is on keeping the skin hydrated.
The Total Effects and Age Defying lines are both designed for mature skin. Some people think that it is the lotions, moisturizers and creams that keep skin properly hydrated. The reality is – the products do not hydrate per se. Instead what they do is cover the skin with a thicker or heavier product so that water cannot evaporate off of the skin so quickly.
Within the Age Defying series there are both day time and night time creams we can use. These products contain pro-retinol and beta-hydroxy ingredients as well as vitamin E which replenish the skin without added oils that can clog pores. The result is younger looking skin that helps to hide fine lines and wrinkles.
The eye cream in this series contains the same basic ingredients but adds vitamin B3 to the mix which actually helps eliminate crow’s feet. The 2 in 1 Cream and Serum is a small tube that slides easily into your purse and can be used at any time for quick touch-ups while at work or out on the town with friends.
Regardless of whether you have young or more mature skin, fine or deep lines – there is probably an Olay anti-wrinkle cream that will work for you.
