Om to Olay

by Migdalia Rivera

Omthe word many use during Yoga, to de-stress, relax and unwind, brings on the same vibe that Olay gives Jeanette in her daily beauty regimen.

Read on to find out why she was chanting her own mantra at the New York Olay Pro-X Hot Yoga Event, held at the Exhale Spa Upper East Side.

New York Olay Pro-X Hot Yoga Event

I have been a fan of Olay for years. One of my childhood memories was of my mother getting ready to step out, with musica/music playing softly in the background. She’d begin by using her daily moisturizer, Olay. I loved when she would allow me to put a little bit on my face.

To this day, the scent, the texture remind me of her. It soothesthe salsera in me; as a result, when Ms. Latina asked me to attend an event Olay had put together to introduce their Olay Professional ProX Clear anti-aging adult acne regimen I thought, “How perfect!”.

The event held at the Exhale Spa Yoga Studio in Manhattan gave me the chance to relive my childhood memories. I would also be able to pass on a tradition, one started by my own Mami, to my daughter, who accompanied me.

Together, at the Olay event, we bonded, just as my Mom and I had years ago. The only difference… the musica/music. Before my mother and I danced salsa steps as we giggled over her beauty regimen, here, my daughter and I would carry Olay yoga mats and chant “Om, Om, Ommmm to Olay”.

I also had the opportunity to meet with a dermatologist. She explained Olay’s 3 step program and noted how it could help my skin. Unlike my mother, I am prone to breakouts. Always have been. The pimples, normally associated with puberty, may bring on teenage angst, yet definitely not its youth! I had hoped that age would rid me of these darn pimples but I was wrong; as a result, I couldn’t wait to use Olay’s 3 Step Program.

The first few days I found myself enjoying the treatment, mainly because I felt like I was paying some attention to myself. Initially I had a bit of a break out, almost as if it was ridding my face of future pimples. It cleared up soon after, leaving my face clearer and brighter. As with yoga, a skin care regimen requires consistency and time to determine its success. From the first Om to the last, Olay helped my skin de-stress, relax and unwind, giving it a calm that not even a mantra could achieve!

Olay means trust to my mother & I. I look forward to passing that on to my daughter. I tell her to treat her skin well now and it will show its appreciation later. Olay is the way for her to begin, regardless of what stage of her life she is in!

Do you have any childhood memories of beauty products?

Disclosure: I received products to review at home. This in no way influenced my review. Some of my most treasured memories of my mother and I involve Olay. Now I am sharing our memories and creating new ones of Olay with my daughter as well. Thank you Olay!
