GET TO KNOW OLIVE SKIN SERUM #3 - The Olive Skin Serum's anti-ageing benefits If you're anything like me, you lead a very busy lifestyle - juggling work, social life and family commitments whilst also frequenting the gym, playing for a sports team and maybe trying to manage some down time in between. Life is becoming increasingly busier it seems. Add to that the advancements in technology allowing us to access emails and social media wherever we are, and it's little wonder that most of us don't "switch off" that much anymore. This behavior concerns me, the constant running around and the inevitable stress that comes with this is surely adding years to my skin as we speak. I'm only in my early twenties, yet I find myself worrying that crows feet and skin sagging are going to occur way before my time due to my busy lifestyle. That's why I am so grateful to have found Botáni's Olive Skin Serum. This little bottle of gold is all I need daily to rest assured that I am doing what I can to combat ageing. Containing plant active Squalene the Olive Skin Serum provides the perfect hydration boost that my skin needs daily to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. What's more, because Olive Squalene is a potent antioxidant, I know that the Olive Skin Serum is providing daily protection for my skin from harsh environmental elements - think pollution, climate and sun. So what are my tips for using the Olive Skin Serum?
- I apply the Olive Skin Serum twice daily, both in the morning and at night. By applying the Olive Skin Serum in the morning I am ensuring that my skin is adequately hydrated for the day to come, and also using the antioxidant benefits to protect my skin from the environment. Because the skin repairs itself at night, my nightly application allows the Olive Squalene to assist in the repair process to rejuvenate my skin overnight.
- It only takes 2-3 drops! Yep that's it! Firstly I cleanse my face, then a light spritz of the Soothing Facial Mist before applying the Olive Skin Serum using a press and release motion. It's important to remember that the Olive Skin Serum can be more readily absorbed when applied to slightly moist skin (that is why the Soothing Facial Mist is the perfect accompaniment!)
- I take care to ensure that I apply the Olive Skin Serum to my eye area, neck and chest area and my hands. These areas are all very delicate, and are often the first places to start showing signs of ageing - what's worse is they are usually forgotten in the skin care regime. Extra vigilance here will leave my skin looking youthful in the long run.
That's all there is to it! This takes me no more than 3 minutes to complete and leaves my skin soft, glowing and *fingers crossed* wrinkle free! No matter how busy you are, I think that's 3 very quick and simple minutes that are worth taking the time out for! What's your Olive Skin Serum routine? I'd love to hear below. Jenna @ Botáni x
