Olay Skincare Expert Q&A
Hi guys! Last week on my Instagram stories I asked your top skincare questions to ask Olay skincare expert, Dr. Frauke. I am so excited to partner with Olay to answer your amazing questions below!
Skincare can be overwhelming and with so many products and crazes, it can be hard to keep up. From questions about retinol and under eye circles– we all could all use some help!
Also, tune in to my IG stories to see Dr. Frauke answer more questions!
Comment down below any other skincare questions you have!
Q: I’m turning 30 next month, where do I start? Retinol?
A: Retinols can cause irritation & in my opinion are only needed at that age for visible wrinkles. Vitamin B3 & peptides are strengthening & plumping & boost natural collagen production.
Q: What product reduces the depth and visibility of lines around your lips?
A: Look for moisturizers or serums w/hyaluronic acid & peptides to deeply hydrate, firm & boost collagen. I love the Olay Micro-Sculpting Serum & Cream!
Q: Advice for keeping hands and neck youthful?
A: Always use a moisturizer with SPF! I keep a bottle in my car, one in my handbag, one at my desk – so that every time I wash my hands I can re-apply.
Q: I have forehead wrinkles at 22. Help!
A: Do you frown and squint a lot? Expression lines can turn into wrinkles, especially if you have dry skin. Moisturize well & use an anti-aging product overnight.
Q: I’m in my 20s how can I get rid of the fine lines around my eyes?
A: This is probably caused by dehydration. Skin around the eyes is the thinnest & driest on the face! Make a habit of using a hydrating eye cream 2x/day.
Q: What can I do to prevent and treat dark circles under my eyes? (Besides eye cream also)
A: Stress, lack of sleep, allergies? A healthy lifestyle makes a big difference for this eye problem. If it’s genetics there’s unfortunately not that much you can do. Find a hydrating and brightening eye cream with Vitamin C.
Q: I’m in my early 40s what type of eye cream should I be using to avoid wrinkles and laugh lines from development?
A: A specialized eye product like the Olay Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment. It gives intense hydration (dry skin wrinkles faster) & the pro-retinol boosts collagen production.
Q: Just moved to CO and wake up with dry skin and cracked lips- what are the best products for this?
A: Hydrate inside & out. Drink your fluids & use a moisturizer 2x/day w/ingredients like glycerin & hyaluronic acid. Mix in a skin oil overnight & a specialized lip treatment w/petrolatum.
Q: What’s the best routine to have during the winter months versus summer?
A: Summer: A sunscreen w/SPF 25 or more is a must. Keep textures light (lotions, gels, whips, serums) so skin sweats less.
Winter: Slightly heavier or richer moisturizer if you have dry skin (creams, oils), & avoid drying cleansers.
Q: What types of products are a must use every day?
A: #1 most important thing is to use a product w/UV/sun protection! & a gentle cleanser 2x/day w/a good PM moisturizer.
Q: How do I get a glow without makeup? I can’t use any fragrance. How do I get a natural glow?
A: A natural glow = sign of healthy skin. Moisturizing 2x/day & exfoliating reg are key. Uneven skin tone? Add products that tackle sun spots & hyperpigmentation.
Q: How to treat acne?
A: Gentle cleansing 2x/ day is the foundation. Look for products w/ benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. Don’t over-dry your skin; use a light, mattifying moisturizer. W/severe acne, always see a dermatologist who can prescribe stronger, med products.
Q: How can you fade acne scars?
A: Look for products that also tackle other types of hyperpigmentation such as sun spots like Olay’s Luminous line & always use a moisturizer w/SPF, bc UV damage can make dark spots worse
