To show you how rejuvenate your skin, Olay Global Ambassador, Anastasia Achilleos takes us through her signature 'super hydration' anti-ageing at home facial, using products from the Olay Regenerist anti-ageing regime. Complete once to twice weekly to see fresher, younger-looking skin…
Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansing is one of the most important things you can do for your skin. It clears clogged pores of make-up and debris, which if not removed will leave skin looking dull. Cleanse every morning and evening by gently rubbing cleanser around the face in fast, small circular motions to give skin a glow, starting at the chin and finishing at the forehead. I really like using a gentle yet effective cleansing milk like Olay Anti-Wrinkle Cleansing Milk. Remove with a warm face towel that’s been soaked in lavender oil-infused water then wrung-out. I prefer this to cotton wool plus it means you can warm the skin in the process.
Step 2: Hydrate
Put a rich anti-ageing cream, I use Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream, into the palms of your hands. Start at the chin, with hands in prayer position slightly beneath. Part hands onto each cheek, sliding upwards towards your temples. Move fingertips to the inner corner of the lower eyelashes, sweep around the eye socket, repeat several times. Repeat sweeping movement over décolleté and neck.
Step 3: Treat
Next, pump two doses of a powerful anti-ageing serum, I use Olay Regenerist 3 Point Super Serum, onto fingertips. Apply over face just for application. Go back over forehead and tap firmly over the entire area. Move fingers to the eye area, pat around the area. Move fingertips to the bridge of the nose, across the cheeks, out to ears, across to the lips and then down to the chin - tapping firmly all the time. Repeat over décolleté and neck.
Back to the forehead, press and hold for 3 seconds across the forehead lines and skin, allowing the skin to absorb the serum. Do the same to the eye area, cheeks and lips, press and hold, counting to 3 on each. Finish with the décolletage.
Step 4: Target the Eyes
The final step is to use a specialist product to treat the delicate eye area. Massaging the eye area with Olay Regenerist Advanced Age-Defying Eye Roller has an instant de-puffing effect. Increasing the pressure slightly along the brow bone and the outer corners of the eye gently lifts the brows and de-stresses the muscle.
