#OlaySunProofSummer: This summer, go beyond just SPF with Olay

Summer is fast approaching, bringing with it the promises of trips to the beach, new adventures, and long, lazy afternoons enjoying the outdoors. As you enjoy the warm sunshine and the pleasures of summer, make sure you don’t forget to sun-proof your skin.

For all the joys that the sunny season brings, it also has one big downside – the possibility of sun damage caused by intense UV rays. In fact, 80% of premature signs of aging are caused by sun exposure. That’s because UV rays induce free radicals that damage the skin from both inside and outside, causing dullness, uneven skin tone, redness, and wrinkles. Prolonged UV exposure can also cause water-oil imbalance, which results to enlarged pores and pimple outbreaks.

Olay Total Effects

Thankfully, you can now sun-proof your skin with Olay’s line-up of anti-aging moisturizers, which protect against sun exposure. Whatever your age or skin type may be, Olay’s re-engineered formulations prove that the way you treat your skin matters as much as having the genes for good skin.

For overall protection and hydration in time for the summer’s dry spell, there’s Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Day Cream SPF 15, a multi-tasking facial moisturizer that delivers optimal hydration to nourish skin and visibly fight the 7 signs of aging – delivering transformative results in just 28 days.

Olay Total Effects was the first mass skincare brand to introduce powerful anti-aging ingredient Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, which is proven to strengthen the skin barrier and help restore skin’s appearance to a more youthful level.

Innovative SolaSheer™ Technology in Olay Total Effects SPF products moisturizes and nourishes your skin with essential vitamins while protecting it against harmful UVA/UVB rays. SolaSheer™ is a combination of Avobenzone sunscreen with two of Olay’s proven moisturizing agents, Niacinamide and Glycerin; giving you a formulation that’s non-greasy and 100% oil-free to keep your skin looking healthy and rejuvenated.

Olay Regenerist

Made with new carob seed extract, the Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting UV Cream Moisturiser SPF 30 provides hydration and renewal benefits to visibly firm skin plus reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun exposure, resulting in younger-looking skin.

Carob seed extract, when combined with other key anti-aging ingredients was shown through in-vitro testing to help accelerate the recovery of aged skin, stimulate collagen and hyaluron production, and aid cell regeneration.

Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting Cream also contains hyaluronic acid with water-attracting properties, drawing moisture into the skin to keep it hydrated and supple and functioning effectively as a barrier. It replenishes moisture and hydrates for a firm look while keeping you protected all throughout summer.

For a luminous skin tone throughout summer, the Olay White Radiance Light Perfecting Day Cream SPF24 contains Olay’s Whitening Complex with Vitamin B3 that minimizes the appearance of dark spots and visibly lightens complexion for fairer-looking skin. SPF24 protects the skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays, and prevents skin darkening. Vitamins help improve the natural radiance of the skin from deep within and keep it radiant.

The tone-perfecting ingredients in this moisturizer include the new Di-peptide Carnosine, which help prevent and reduce the visible appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, while boosting translucency and perfecting both skin tone and light reflection in the skin. It also has OliveM, which helps fight free radicals, as well as Vitamin B3 and B5, Vitamin E, and N-Acetyl Glucosamine, which work together to give you that healthy-looking, youthful glow.

With Olay, you don’t need to fear the dangers of the summer sun. In fact, you can retain your youthful look and luminous skin during this time. With your #OlaySunProofSummer, as well as continuous practice of skin care, you can combat the effects of aging caused by the sun’s rays.

Go beyond just SPF and gear up for another day out in the sun with the new Olay Summer Packs – your partner to kick-start your journey to sun-proofing your skin. The Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Day Cream SPF15 with Anti-Aging Night Firming Cream, as well as the Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Day Cream SPF15 with 7-in-1 Daily Serum is only Php999 SRP each. The Olay Regenerist Micro-sculpting UV Cream Moisturiser SPF 30 with Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence is only Php2,199 SRP, and the Olay White Radiance Light Perfecting Day Cream SPF24 with Light Perfecting Essence is only Php1,499 SRP. Now available in all leading department stores.

Hot Wheels Epic Race THE FINALS 2016

Summer’s over but our family still can’t get enough of our little boy’s Epic Experience. Few weeks ago I posted about our epic racing experience, now it finally came to an end.

Our little boy, was one of the 20 qualifiers for the EPIC RACE FINALS, along with 40 more kids from the South and the North of Luzon. My kiddo and I were very excited and even counted our number of sleeps before the Big Day.

During the semi-finals, kids were given a time to warm-up their cars by participating in various activities: building tracks, jumping on loops and racing with their friendly competitors.

 

The area was jam-packed! Parents and kids alike are excited and thrilled to once again try their luck on the Gravity Racing Platform.

Paw Patrol Fan

My little one is a fan of Nick Jr. TV shows. He’ll start to watch by 8 am till noon. This is a part of our morning routine everyday for over a year now. It’s what keeps him busy as I do my chores. His fave among the shows is Paw Patrol, and two of his most fave pups are Chase and Marshall. Last week, when I saw Toy Kingdom’s ads about the upcoming  paw Patrol Meet & Greet, I got excited and told my son about it. Raix was so excited that we even counted how many sleeps left before the event day. 🙂

Sharing with you mommies some photos taken during the event. It was a two day event held at SM MOA, Music Hall.

Just outside the event area Toy Kingdom has Paw Patrol Merchandises up for grabs.

Upon purchase of an item worth 500 Php and above one (1) kid and a parent can get inside the event area. Kids are a given a certificate, this certificate are to be presented at each activity for stamp completion. Once completed a small prize awaits the kids.

This is Rocky’s Don’t Lose it, Reuse it booth. A kid needs to get 5 recyclable items and put it in the recyclable bin.

Rubble’s  booth. To get a stamp, a kid needs to get hollow blocks and place it in the big crate.

Skye’s Salon. Face painting booth. Kids get to choose which pup/badge they want to be painted on their hand.

Zuma’s Pop Pop Boogie Booth. To get a stamp, just spin the roulette and do as it says! 🙂

As a mom of a little one who loooveessss Hot Wheels, we grabbed the chance to join this 1st ever EPIC RACE! Last April 10, we went to SM Megamall and joined the race. To join you need to buy 2 basic cars, then proceed to the registration area to get your racing number/tag. Once registered racers will be given a chance to warm up and try their cars on the gravity-driven track. Top 20 with the farthest racing cars get to qualify for the Final Race at SM Mall of Asia.

We brought with us his 2 CHAMPION CARS as we call it, because these 2 cars made him 1st runner-up from the Hot Wheels Convention 2015. 🙂

He obediently followed the game rules. He practiced and had his car warmed-up. He waited patiently in line. He even made friends. 🙂 The boys were talking about their toy cars as if it was a real car! Hahaha

After warming-up we also checked the diorama. A child’s room with the latest Hot Wheels Track Builders.
