Olay Protects Against the Summer Sun #PGMomGiveaway

Summer.  It's on!  And, by early predictions it looks like a long, hot, dry summer is stretching out ahead of us (at least here in SW Ontario).  I don't mind one bit and welcome those lazy, hazy days of summer in the sunshine.  But, I am also aware how important it is to protect my skin from the sun's harmful rays. 

I am excited to share with you that there are two new Olay products being released in July, specifically formulated to protect skin from the sun.  These are two skin care products you'll want to keep handy this summer as the temperatures heat up.

Olay with advanced SolaSheer technology combines SPF with Vitamin B3 with Glycerin.
SolaSheer is non-greasy, that keeps skin healthy and ageless. 



Olay Regenerist: Advanced anti-aging Micro sculpting cream with sunscreen
( broad spectrum SPF 30 )

This is a moisturizer that lifts and protects for younger looking skin.

Benefits:
  • Helps protect against harmful UVA/UVB rays
  • Hydrates to regenerate volume and shape across skin's surface
  • Instantly reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Soothes skin's appearance
  • And, firms skin over time
Olay Total Effects: Anti-Aging Moisturizing SPF 15

This is an anti-aging moisturizer, now with broad spectrum SPF. 

Benefits:
  • Visibly smoothes fine line and wrinkles
  • Evens the appearance of skin tone
  • Enhances brightness
  • Minimizes the look of pores
  • Visibly reduces age spots
  • Restores firm look
  • Replenishes moisture

Dr. Pon is a Toronto based dermatologist who is special consultant to Olay.
  We asked her to answer a few (Canada) specific questions and even broke a sun-myth or two while doing so. 

Myth: Canadians spend less time in the sun.
Fact: While sun’s damaging effects on the skin are widely known, data from the Public Health Agency of Canada reveals that Canadians are spending an increasing amount of time in the sun, despite its known risks. Everyone flocks outside during the first warm day, but these sun seekers are also accelerating the aging process of their skin. As confirmed by Olay’s Multi-Decade and Ethnicity Study done in collaboration with Professor Alexa Kimball at Harvard Medical School, the sun is the number one cause of external skin aging, causing the degenerating of elastic skin tissue-which leads to deep wrinkles.  

Myth: Sun damage to the skin is only a concern during the summer months.
Fact: Every season necessitates daily protection from incidental sun exposure – not just the warmer summer months. Most people underestimate the amount of sun exposure they get because it is often unintentional, especially in the winter. Your skin is like a memory bank – it remembers all your encounters with UV and adds them up. Even though sun damage is cumulative, it is never too late to start protecting your skin. Incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine is essential in protecting against sun damage.  

Myth: SPF 30 offers twice as much protection as SPF 15.
Fact: In fact, standard math principles don’t apply when it comes to SPF ratings. An SPF 15 blocks around 94 percent of harmful UV rays; an SPF 30 blocks around 97 per cent; and after that there is very little increase in UV protection. However, Dr. Pon recommends choosing higher end of protection and using an SPF 30 for daily use. This is also the recommendation of the Canadian Dermatology Association.

I've used Olay as my go to skin care line often over the years. And, I have to say that  I am so excited about SolSheer Technology!   It simply gives me a piece of mind of sun protection without adding an extra step to my morning regime.  I already know that these products do a wonderful job of moisturizing and helping my skin stay youthful, but, now Olay has taken it up a notch to add in sun protection. 

Great products just got better!  Look for and give them a try, hitting store shelves this summer.
