Olay White Radiance

“Beauty is in the skin! Take care of it, oil it, clean it, scrub it, perfume it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you'll feel like a queen. If society is hard on you, fight back by pampering your skin. Skin is political. Otherwise why would the imams order us to hide it?” 
― Fatema Mernissi

Hola!
So I was going through all my messages and comments the other day and I read a lot of comments asking me about how do I protect my skin and what's my skincare regime to keep the glow. Well I finally decided to answer all your questions and share the products which I have been using since a while now. You all know that being a blogger  end up shooting a lot and my skin goes through a lot of trauma. Shooting in direct sunlight and using different make-up products on my skin for reviews makes my skin very dull and dry. I came across Olay's White Radiance Skincare Products and completely fell in love with them. In this blog, I will be sharing the products I religiously use and all the other products from their White Radiance range. 

I was surprised to know that according to a study done by Olay, Indian skin is highly susceptible to dryness and dullness as compared to other skin types in the world. We also have a skin type which is highly prone to melanin overproduction which leads to dark spots and uneven skin tone. I am sure many of your face these problems and would relate to this. I started using the White Radiance range of products from Olay few months back and it has done wonders to my skin. It helps my skin retain the moisture and gives me pearl like radiance. After all that my skin goes through because of long shoot hours and exposure to sun, I am very happy with the radiance I get by using these Olay products. Read along to get to know a little about all the 5 products in the White Radiance range. 


Olay White Radiance Brightening Foaming Cleanser
This is a must have product from the range. I love the foam this face wash creates and it washes off all the dullness in seconds. It also helps in removing excess oil from your skin and removes the pigments of colored cosmetics from your face effectively. So the first thing I do after shoot's is come home, wipe the make-up off and cleanse with this face wash. 


Olay White Radiance Brightening Intensive Serum

This product has high concentration of CelLucent whitening active, Vitamin B3, Natural Plant Whitening Extract and dual color vitamin beads. So it basically helps in tackling both surface and hidden whitening issues like spots, darkness, and uneven skin tone. The best part about this product is that it is non greasy. You should use this with UV cream/lotion during day time

Olay White Radiance Brightening Intensive Lotion with SPF 24
This product is very  light on your skin and acts as a daily moisturizer which protects your skin from dullness and it has SPF 24 so it helps in protecting your skin from harmful UV Rays! I make sure to apply this product before leaving home for shoots. 



Olay White Radiance Brightening Intensive Cream Moisturiser with SPF 24
This is one of my favorite products which has Vitamin B3 to help your skin reduce the dark spots and makes your skin very even. It also has SPF 24 so it protects your skin from UV Rays too. I wear this all day long even if I am at home as most of us don't know but you need lotions with SPF at home too. 


Olay White Radiance Brightening Night Essence Moisturiser
This is another product which I make sure to use. After a whole day of torture for my skin, I make sure to follow the Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize Process at night. The night moisturizer by Olay replenishes the moisture in my skin by proving intense hydration over night and I wake up with a very radiant skin. 


In all I am completely loving the products and I hope this review helps your in picking the products perfect for your skin. The White Radiance range of products by Olay helps in boosting skins metabolic rate and reduces dark spots. It also helps in making your skin visibly even by penetrating 10 layers deep down into our skin to give a smooth glow. It's very important for us to choose the right skincare products for ourselves. Olay with it's cellular level technology works the best for me by making my inner radiance shine through.
