Since the collagen level in olive skin lies somewhere between dark and fair skin, you need to protect yourself from the entire spectrum of aging complaints -- from wrinkles to age spots to sagging.
The Right Care Routine for Olive Skin
Cleansing: Use a gentle cleanser once in the morning to remove what little residue is left from the product you applied at bedtime. At night you can use a foaming cleanser. Thoroughly cleanse to make sure you get rid of any excess sebum and makeup.
Morning: Fight hyperpigmentation with an antioxidant product, such as a vitamin C serum. Those containing up to 15% vitamin C are best for really penetrating the skin to fight free radicals and treat dark under eye circles. Vitamin C serum is important since no sunscreen can completely block out sun rays.
Night: To help fight blotchy skin and age spots, choose a skin-lightening agent that’s hydroquinone-free and contains retinol, to aid in the turnover of new skin cells.
