The past couple of months have been pretty crazy for me! From traveling back and forth to the east coast during summer, spending a few weeks in Bali, and flying straight to winter climate in Detroit, it’s been very important to stay on top of my skincare. I partnered up with Olay this past month to try out their new Serum Sticks, an easy-to-apply serum stick full with hydration adding that natural glow to your skin. I’ve easily integrated the brightening serum stick into my daily skincare routine and have seen a difference in my skin no matter what climate I’m in!
One of my main concerns when it comes to traveling and my skincare routine is hydration. My skin almost always gets super dry after a flight and takes anywhere from a few days to weeks to get acclimated to the new climate. Flying will always dry out your skin due to the low humidity and blasting air on a flight, so I make sure to pack an Olay Serum Stick and moisturizer to prevent my skin from feeling like beef jerky coming off of a flight lol! The serum stick is the best thing invented because it’s super compact AND it’s not a liquid so it’s 100% TSA approved which makes it super easy to take anywhere.
There are three different types of hydrating formulas that focus on:
- Brightening– formulated with Vitamin C which is an antioxidant that helps brighten skin tone
- Refreshing– Sake Kasu is one of the main ingredients that contains amino acids and antioxidants which strengthens the skin.
- Cooling– contains cactus water, electrolytes, and antioxidants that helps cool and soothe your skin.
My favorite Pressed Serum Stick variety is the Brightening because it keeps my skin hydrated and once I land I come off of the plane with a natural glow since I don’t like wearing any make up on flights. After using the Brightening Serum Stick for about a month I’ve found it really easy to keep an ongoing glow without having to put a lot of make up on! It glides on easily leaving my skin radiant and revitalized since it has Vitamin B3 and C which helps lock in moisture. My steps to achieving that natural glow look are:
- washing my face with Olay Gentle Foaming Face Wash
- using a toner
- next gliding on the Olay Brightening Serum stick and making sure my face fully absorbs it
- then proceed with my make up routine
By incorporating the Brightening Serum Stick into my skincare routine I’ve seen a huge difference in the consistency of my skin no matter what climate I’m in. I’ve been laying off of the foundation and only using a light BB cream and have received so many compliments on how glowy my skin looks and for that I can thank Olay!
