We all want better skin but with all these different skin care products for different skin types, it can get a little overwhelming. Plus, melanin-rich skin has its own set of unique challenges such as uneven skin tone and hyper-pigmentation. I don't know about you but I have been looking for a simple skincare routine to help me confidently embrace a fresh face. Luckily, Olay Luminous products have a 4 step regime to tackle these issues while achieving and maintaining a radiant glow that we all desire. Which is why I decided to replace my skincare products and take the Olay 28 Day Challenge that not only leaves you feeling totally refreshed but also empowers self-love.

Step 1: Cleanse with the Olay Luminous Micellar Water. While it's important to drink lots of water to keep your skin hydrated, it will also help to look for products with nourishing and nurturing ingredients. This facial cleanser effortlessly cleanses, hydrates and brightens the look of your skin tone. Also acting as a makeup remover, the mess-free pump is easy to use and gently sweeps away impurities leaving your skin feeling refreshed, clean and illuminated. Sometimes exfoliating cleansers can be too harsh and end up damaging your skin, more than helping. What I love about the Olay Luminous Micellar Water is it requires no rinsing afterwards and doesn't leave behind any oil residue.

Step 2: Apply Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate. As an Afro-Latina, I have noticed that using a serum for my skin has many functions. Not only do face serums protect your skin but also improve the evenness of your skin tone. This specific face booster uses Pearl-Optics™ Science to enhance the skin’s absorbency with hydration and it helps fade the look of dark spots. A serum can be used twice a day, morning and night. It will be the most effective to use after cleansing to prep your skin for your moisturizer.

Step 3: Apply Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion. You will learn that moisturizers that hydrate your skin will become your best friend. This face lotion from Olay's Luminous line cares for the complexion of women of color. While moisturizers are typically thought to be best used in colder climates, it's extremely important to take care of your skin all year long whether it's winter, summer, spring or fall. The lightweight moisturizer hydrates from within to leave skin glowing with luminosity that lasts. In just a few weeks of using these products I have noticed my skin was more plump and hydrated. I will continue to use this non-greasy facial lotion to fade the look of dark spots over time.

Step 4: Apply Olay Luminous Overnight Mask. It's great to see that companies are taking ethnic skin into consideration when creating skincare products. My favorite product from the whole challenge has been the Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask. Normally while we sleep, the skin repairs itself but with a little help from you, your skin can become even healthier. A proper bedtime skin care routine will help improve your skin tone, make your skin glow and reduce blemishes. With that being said, in the words of Beyonce "I woke up like this".

Initially, the idea of embracing our natural beauty can be scary, especially if you’re tackling unpleasant skincare issues. I am proud of my complexion and took the Olay 28 Day Challenge to achieve healthy, radiant-looking skin. Meaning for 28 days, I replaced my current cleanser, prep steps and facial moisturizers to exclusively use the Olay Luminous products using the 4 Step regimen listed above. The key to your natural beauty transition is all about developing a better skin care routine. So I'd like to take this opportunity and encourage my fellow Afro-Latinas to turn their worst skin care nightmares into a month long challenge.
