Why your skin care products aren’t working
There are plenty of reasons why getting older is great, like not caring about what people think, or becoming incredibly wise and knowledgeable in many areas of life. But one of the not-so-fun parts is the toll ageing takes on your skin. It happens slowly but surely: you notice a few more lines and wrinkles, a dullness that just doesn’t do anything for your complexion, and maybe even some pigmentation problems.
So, you buy skin care products (usually moisturisers) that claim to target all of those ageing issues and promise to leave your skin looking radiant and more youthful. And when you don’t see a huge change in your skin, you blame the products. The ingredients don’t do what they say! It’s all just a bunch of marketing hogwash!
But the truth is, that’s not the full story. There’s a thing called ‘skin energy’, and when it’s high, it helps to boost cell turnover, which leaves your skin looking youthful. As you age, your skin energy decreases. Environmental factors like stress, diet, pollution, and UV radiation can also lead to the loss of skin energy.
And here’s how this affects how your products work:
When your skin energy is low, cell activity declines, impacting the appearance of your skin and its ability to absorb ingredients (dead skin cells begin to accumulate on your skin and act as a barrier, meaning products don’t penetrate as deeply).
So you can be using the best ingredients in the world, but if they can’t penetrate deep enough, they’re not going to be of much benefit to you.
In an effort to overcome the issues that come with a loss of skin energy as well as ineffective ingredient absorption, the skin care giant conducted research over the course of 10 years, across four continents. Over 50,000 hours of clinic testing later, and they created the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence, a two-part solution that helps women to get the most out of their skin care products.
Containing niacinimide to boost skin metabolism; olivem, an antioxidant that latches onto ingredients and delivers them deep into the layers of your skin; and pal-KTTs, which stimulate the production of collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and promote firmer skin, the Miracle Boost Pre-Essence first re-energises skin to increase cell turnover and leave you with a more youthful-looking complexion. It then helps to overcome the barrier to absorption, so the ingredients in your moisturisers can finally work as hard as you’d like them to.
Applied after cleansing and before moisturising, the lightweight essence works to deliver two times the penetration of the ingredients of the Regenerist Microsculpting Cream than on its own. It can be used in conjunction with other skin care products, but it’s found to be most effective when paired with the niacinimide-rich Regenerist Microsculpting Cream.
Olay is offering the Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence for online pre-sale now, before it’s available in stores in September.
