Do you want to banish winter’s battle lines, dull and tired appearance to reveal younger-looking skin? The secret behind a healthy spring glow simply comes down to the science of your skin, and using skincare that works with your skin’s natural rhythm to boost renewal and repair.

Scientific research has well established that skin’s DNA repair is more active at night when skin is not pre-occupied with environmental stressors. Unfortunately, the latest Multi-Decade Multi-Ethnicity study conducted by Olay in partnership with Dr. Alexa Kimball, Professor of Dermatology, Harvard Medical School, revealed that as we age the skin repair process starts to slow down which is why skin becomes more prone to damage and signs of ageing become more apparent.

Knowing this, Olay scientists have developed formulations to help boost skin repair and renewal and reverse the signs of ageing. The regimen, called “Overnight miracle” consists of the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Pre-Essence (to be used after cleansing and before the day and night moisturiser), Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream and Regenerist Micro-sculpting Night cream. It boosts skin renewal and repair by 60 per cent to reveal a complexion that can look up to 10 years younger. In just five nights, up to 20 million skin cells are renewed resulting in 50 per cent better hydration for firmer, plumper skin with less visible wrinkles.

Activation of skin metabolism
It’s not just the harsh winter climate we’re emerging from that’s left your skin feeling and looking lifeless. Olay breakthrough research revealed that your skin cell energy levels decrease between the ages of 20 and 60 resulting in a sharp decline in skin cell metabolism, leaving your complexion dull and dehydrated. Cells that lack energy are unable to absorb even the most active ingredients from the best skincare available.

But after progressive research, Olay's Overnight Miracle formula that actually boosts skin cell energy to levels closer to younger skin. The first drop of the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence – that contains a revolutionary combination of scientific ingredients Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Olivem (olive extract), and amino peptides (pro-collagen molecules) - penetrates deep into the dermis layers and starts renewal of a million surface cells.

Skin stress reduction
This Overnight Miracle not only addresses the sharp decline in skin vitality that takes place as you age, but the pioneering blend of vitamin B3, Olive extract, Dill Extract, Hyaluronic Acid and pro-collagen nutrients does an about-face on the number one energy exhauster, stress.

UV exposure, environmental pollutants and lifestyle factors all put our skin in the stress zone, resulting in loss of elasticity, pigmentation and unwanted wrinkles. It’s not the look you want when the springtime invites are coming in. David Khoo, Olay Senior Scientist, says: “With pollution levels rising in Australia, the Olay MDE findings are highly relevant to Australian women concerned with keeping skin healthy and protected against the effects of pollution. Living in an urban environment, you are exposed to pollution from traffic, factories and houses which can have an impact on skin health and the rate at which it ages.”

Olay Overnight Miracle is truly a beauty genius of its generation.

Skin can look up to 10 years younger
Skin repair slows down during the day as our body is focused on other functions, the Micro-Sculpting Cream works to improve that cell renewal and nourish skin as it fights all those external ageing factors. During the night, skin repair naturally increases, making it the perfect time to reverse signs of ageing. The Micro-Sculpting Night Cream has all the key anti-ageing ingredients of the day cream, but formulated with a lightweight non-greasy gel-like texture that quickly absorbs, and leaves skin feeling plump & hydrated through the night. Pair both with the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Pre-Essence to boost skin cell renewal by 60%, resulting in 2x better penetration of anti-ageing actives and 50% more hydration.

Wrinkle and pore-reduction results are so outstanding it’s no wonder these products are called the Overnight Miracle. An added bonus is a plump, hydrated, smooth and taught visage that reflects that of a youthful complexion; scientific research has proven that the Olay Regenerist regimen can make skin look up to 10 years younger.

Jodie Kukura of Goo Roo Beauty used the cell renewing Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence followed by Olay’s moisture-rich cream and was clearly impressed by the results; “(after using the products) I have certainly noticed a difference very quickly in using these products… My skin looks brighter, more radiant, and I would say that my skin absolutely looks smoother,” she says.
