"Your hair looks magnificent."?
It's the first thing Sarah Hyland says to me over our Zoom call. Sarah Hyland thinks my chaotically air-dried curls look magnificent. That confidence boost is going to last me at least a week. But we're not here to talk about hair. We are here to talk about confidence, however, and skin care. (Though I'm determined to ask about her own magnificent curls before I hit the Leave Meeting button.)
I'm surprised when Hyland tells me, although she recently just turned 30, that firmness is already a top skin priority for her. "Of course I'm already concerned about it. I'm an actress," she reminds me, though I don't need reminding. I loved her as Haley Dunphy on Modern Family, which aired its series finale last April. Throughout the nearly 11 years she was filming episodes, Hyland was also posting candid updates about her struggle with kidney disease and the side effects of treatment, which may account for her concerns about firmness more than aging.
"I've been put on a lot of medications like prednisone, which makes your face get larger — they call it moon face. It's horrible," she tells Allure. "I lose and gain weight so fast. So that elasticity in your skin is just stretched out all the time from going back and forth."
Hyland has been able to look to Olay to address her skin concerns and that coupled with her strength and resilience makes her the perfect partner for the brand's ongoing #FaceAnything campaign. She's also the perfect person to talk about the new Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide24 collection, launching at Walgreens this month. It includes a cleanser, ?serum, an eye cream, and Hyland's favorite, the Collagen Peptide24 Moisturizer.?
