Our skin is the biggest organ of the human body and a huge indicator of our general health and well-being. When we have bright healthy looking skin, we can’t help but feel good and exude confidence. However, with everyday stresses and busy lives, this glow isn’t always easy to achieve without a little helping hand.
As we age, our skin becomes less responsive to skin care ingredients and often women have a compromised skin tone due to the effects of external aggressors such as UV effects on skin, effects of pollution on skin and stress.
With advanced ingredient formulation, the Pearl Optics technology within Olay Regenerist Luminous targets uneven skin tone and helps restore the skin’s natural luminosity, helping women to regain their glow in a way they may not have thought possible.
The effect of ‘bioenergy drainers’ on our skin
Olay conducted extensive research into skin ‘bioenergy drainers’ which include often unavoidable day-to-day lifestyle factors which impact on skin health and appearance. Stress
, diet, pollution, cigarette smoke, cold weather and UV radiation
all have an impact on our skin.
Olay scientists found that low energy disrupts the natural process of melanin breakdown and elimination, which in turn impacts skin (hyper) pigmentation. As bioenergy levels in facial skin decline, it can result in changes to skin tone and texture that can negatively affect the way skin reflects and absorbs light; skin may look uneven, dull, less bright and less luminous.
Olay’s research into the negative effect of drainers on skin bioenergy and what this means for skin appearance has inspired products like Olay Regenerist Luminous skin tone perfecting cream
The key ingredients in Olay Regenerist Luminous skin tone perfecting cream which make a difference
Olay has screened a range of skin care ingredients
for their skin energy boosting properties and it’s these key ingredients, combined and working in harmony which bring the brilliant results of the Olay Regenerist Luminous products.
Taking this research understanding into account, Olay skincare scientists developed the Pearl Optics technology, a combination of ingredients to re-energise skin’s appearance, target uneven skin tone and help restore skin’s natural luminosity.
Olay Regenerist Luminous is designed to work layer by layer on the skin’s surface, penetrating up to ten layers deep. With continuous use, the appearance of dark spots and discoloration is diminished to reveal a more even skin tone.
The secret tips for glowing skin? Look no further than Olay Regenerist Luminous skin tone perfecting cream.Key ingredients include:Niacinamide
The water-soluble form of Vitamin B3, Niacinamide has been shown to increase NADPH levels (NADPH is a method of stimulating energy production of human skin cells) in human skin in vitro, and produce beneficial effects to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture and minimising the look of pores, spots and blotchiness and brighten skin sallowness.1
NAG (N-Acetyl Glucosamine)
In the laboratory / in-vitro it was found that a combination of Niacinamide and NAG work better together than each ingredient individually and in a large controlled clinical study it was found that this formulation combination containing both (NAG) N-acetyl glucosamine and Niacinamide significantly reduces the look of dark spots and make skin appear more even in tone.2
OliveM, Green Tea and Vitamin E
Antioxidants, such as OliveM, Green Tea and Vitamin E help protect the skin’s outermost layers from surface free radicals which can lead to skin discolouration.3
OliveM is also a derivative of olive oil, which in the lab has been shown to increase the penetration of anti-ageing ingredients into the surface layers of skin.3
The powerful humectant Glycerin binds water in the top layers of skin and hydrates the skin on contact.
