When you think of anti-aging skincare, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it that wrinkle that needs to be smoothed out, or is it that brown spot that’s bugging you? Believe it or not, it’s not always about wrinkles! Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone are two of the biggest anti-aging concerns that women face today. While you can just pop into your dermatologist’s office and get a few shots to help temporarily smooth a wrinkle, that brown spot is going to take some time.
There are so many layers of life that your skin has seen, there can be more than one factor, or “layer” in why spots or discoloration are there in the first place.
- …when were in your late teens, you didn’t apply sunscreen as liberally as you should have.
- …when you were in your twenties, you experienced adult acne that left behind several spots of discoloration.
- …when you were in your thirties, you had a baby, and you noticed your hormones caused a change in your skin’s tone.
- …when you were in your forties, you had an allergic reaction to a cosmetic that left a mark after it healed.
- …when you took you last trip to Hawaii, you took in too much sun, and now it shows.
So now what?
Start exfoliating regularly, it accelerates the turnover of the dead skin cells with excess pigmentation.
You should invest in an affordable exfoliation regimen, like the Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion + Advanced Cleansing System. You’ll find it easy to use to remove the layers that life puts on daily, like: perspiration, excess oil, environmental pollution, sunscreen, and makeup. It will also help you achieve a microdermabrasion benefit, which can start working on skin discoloration. When used twice weekly with the Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion foam head and Thermal Crystal Polisher, you’ll help improve your skin’s dullness and discoloration, for a visibly improved texture and a more even skin tone—getting you one step closer to radiant, more even skin. You should also find that with continued use, your skincare products start working more effectively, taking your anti-aging protocol to the next level.
From this moment forward—protect, protect, protect!
No ifs, ands, or buts about it—you must apply sun protection daily that protects the skin against both aging (UVA), and burning rays (UVB). Don’t forget about your neck (front and back) and the backs of your hands.
Brighten the skin using products that help even discoloration and hyperpigmentation.
Try the Olay Pro-X Brightening Protocol, it treats the five root causes of uneven skin tone to visibly restore even color for smoother, brighter skin. With three products (Spot Fading Treatment, Anti-Oxidant UV Blocker Sheer Daily Moisturizer SPF 35, and Brightening Renewal Cream), the Brightening Protocol addresses skin discoloration, lack of hydration, and free radical damage.
It took your skin time to get here, it will take some time to help improve! Your skin should feel smoother after the first Olay Pro-X Microdermabrasion treatment, but it may take several weeks or months before discolorations begin to lighten.
