I’m a few weeks into being home from Thailand and the jet lag (that I was convinced I had skirted, but definitely didn’t) has worn off and I feel like a contributing member of society again.
Work is beginning to heat up again and life has been really, really good.
A lot has changed for me in the past year and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Coincidentally, I’ve also been the most nomadic I’ve ever been. Since October, I’ve totalled over 140 hours of travel time up in the air. More recently, I spent the past month traveling Thailand where I received my 200-hour yoga teacher training certification (look out for a big Chiang Mai travel guide and an update on my yoga adventure soon)!
But all of this fun has come at a cost for my skin. Between stagnant airplane air, hot sun, salt water and sweat, it’s taken a beating.
Lucky for me though, I brought new Olay Total Effects Whip with me which has become an enjoyable and comforting routine for me amidst the unpredictable throws of travel.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may already know that I’ve partnered with Olay to create some content (including this broadcast commercial complete with a Piper cameo, of course).
I’ve honestly never had a skin care routine. I mostly buy whatever cleanser is on sale and I’ve never moisturized regularly, but as I enter the final years of my twenties, it was due time I adopt a skincare routine, which made this Olay sponsorship such a feel-good and natural fit for me.
While my skin has been through the ringer over the past few months, I’ve actually seen an improvement in the overall tone and texture. It’s smoother, feels hydrated and it’s definitely more even in tone. Since using Olay Whips, I’ve actually found I use less cleansers and feel less of a need to use things like tinctures and masks. And having SPF built-in especially as we enter spring and summer is pretty darn stellar.
So if you’re looking into some moisturizers, I highly recommend you try it for yourself (buy it online at WM.ca)!
