A few months ago, I returned to the office after two years of working from home. I expected it would be a bit of a shock to the system (my work from home sweatpants game was so strong), but I was genuinely excited to get back into a new routine and set myself up to achieve professional goals that oftentimes felt like they were put on pause over the last couple of years.
However, I quickly learned that my long and drawn out morning routine would need an overhaul that fit into my new life and my new goals for myself. That was scary for me, because I take self-care seriously and, just like in my career, I’m a results-oriented person, so things needed to work, and work right.
So I started thinking about how I would approach my new routine. Coffee? Easy, I could make it at the office. My morning workout? Well, I walk to work, so that checks off commuting and being active. My morning beauty routine that often turned into an hour-long standoff with the mirror? That’s where I needed to reevaluate.
“On-the-go” is a common phrase in the self-care and beauty industry, and is perhaps more important now than ever before. And I knew if I wanted to acclimate comfortably to my new, new normal, then I was going to have to take some portion of my beauty routine “on the go” with me.
For a long time, I had been applying creams and serums and masks during my morning beauty routine to help achieve glowing skin and strong, healthy hair and nails — but when I recently discovered OLLY beauty-supporting supplements, I realized those time-consuming steps could become as easy as taking a gummy or softgel.
The Benefits Of OLLY Products
The first product I incorporated into my routine was the Collagen Gummy Rings, which deliver a clinically-tested dose of 2.5 grams of Bioactive Collagen Peptides — aka the good stuff that’s shown to support collagen production, boost skin elasticity, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles in as little as four weeks*. And all you have to do is enjoy two of the peach-flavored gummies every morning for the benefits to take action.
Now, I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t fun to be taking a gummy as a step in my beauty routine. But beyond that (yummy) benefit, I also felt like the Collagen Gummy Rings helped with the vibrancy of my skin. I don’t feel the need to be layering on magic lotions and potions with the inclusion of the gummies into my routine, since they provide that added boost and radiance I’ve been looking for.
I’ve also started using the Ultra Strength Beauty Softgels, which seamlessly fit into my morning vitamin and supplement routine. These softgels include collagen peptides as well, in addition to biotin, hyaluronic acid, and olive leaf extract. Even if you’re new to the beauty industry, you know that biotin and hyaluronic acid are two superstar ingredients you want to incorporate into your beauty routine, with biotin helping me strengthen my hair and nails*, and hyaluronic acid helping me achieve that glowing skin I lost sight of after years of staring at a reflection of myself in video calls.
Both of these products have become lightning-speed steps in my morning beauty routine, which I am so grateful for. They’re easy to use and provide impactful benefits that give me the time and energy to focus on the next phase of my life, while also allowing me to feel proactive in my beauty routine efforts.
I genuinely believe a beauty routine should be working for you, and not slowing you down at any moment in life. OLLY supplements have helped me take my routine on the go, giving me the confidence to conquer anything I set my mind to.
