So what’s the secret to the ingredients?

AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acids are water-soluble types of acids used for their exfoliating and moisturizing properties. Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA works wonders in significantly reducing the appearance of blemish marks when used twice a day after cleansing, helping you achieve clearer and smoother skin after just 8 weeks of consistent use, allowing you to be confident to step into the spotlight. While a few drops of Niacinamide after cleansing takes care of making your pores look smaller and evens out discolorations, following up with AHA at night every other day refreshes and helps in hydrating your skin.
Ready to get rid of those stubborn marks? Here are a few more tips you can do:
1. Add Niacinamide to your skincare routine.
Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It is also one of the thirteen essential vitamins that the body needs to function but cannot produce on its own.
The benefits that Niacinamide can give your body ranges from reducing fine lines and wrinkles, strengthening the skin barrier, reduces facial pore appearance.
2. Do not hate, exfoliate (correctly)!
Exfoliation is not just scrubbing your face. Chemical exfoliators can be an be an effective way to remove dead skin cells to be able to replace them with newer, brighter ones. One ingredient that is perfect for exfoliation that does not dry the skin out is Lactic acid.
Lactic acid is a type of AHA that weakens the bond between dead skin cells, allowing them to peel off more readily and stimulating exfoliation in the upper levels of the skin.
3. Antioxidants are a must.
Antioxidants can protect skin against free radicals triggered by stressors such as UV or inflammation and thereby preventing the future formation of dark spots.
