What: An invitation for an Olay Eye Reading with Dr. Sandy Skotnicki-Grant
When: February 27, 2004
Where: Chatelaine’s Offices, Toronto, Ont.
Why: To learn how to treat and prevent future lines around my eyes
Dr. Skotnicki-Grant handed me a mirror and asked me to take a good look at the area surrounding my eyes. As my tired, aging peepers looked back at me, I thought: what can she tell me that I don’t already know?
To get an in-depth examination, the skin around my eyes was studied in three sections. In the area beside my eyes, we measured the depth of my wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet. We then looked to see how much my eyelids sag (not too much, in my case). Finally we took a closer look at my under-eye puffiness.
After my analysis, Dr. Skotnicki-Grant determined that I am a “busy beauty.” In other words, I have an active lifestyle, I am frequently exposed to the elements and I enjoy smiling and laughing. After the diagnosis, Dr. Skotnicki-Grant gave me some great tips to prevent the visible signs of aging around my eyes.
Olay recommends that a busy beauty try its Olay Total Effects Eye Transforming Cream, $28. It contains vita-niacin (vitamin B3, B5 and vitamin E), aloe vera and cucumber extract. These ingredients help hydrate skin and improve its appearance. This cream has a slight shimmer to it, which makes the area around the eyes look instantly younger.
