At 25, Aisha has been succeeding as a woman in STEM but says she has been struggling with serious skin issues since she was 14, which is hurting her confidence. “It’s dry, dull, and the hyperpigmentation seems to be getting worse as I get older,” she says. “I wish it didn’t bother me so much.”

Elaine Swann, lifestyle expert and spokesperson for Olay, says, “Feeling good about ourselves starts from within, but there are things we can actively do about our outer appearance to boost that confidence.”

“You mentioned that your skin looks dull and uneven. For that, I really like Olay’s Vitamin C Moisturizer. The brand found that when used twice a day for 28 days, your skin will become up to two times brighter than with a basic moisturizer.”

“The other product is Olay’s Retinol 24 Night Moisturizer. It renews your skin, so it looks and feels smoother and hydrated.”

Both products are available at, and at retailers nationwide.
