Before and AHAfter: Get the NEW Olay Luminous Niacinamide + AHA exclusively at Shopee

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Having blemish marks is a common struggle for a lot of
people. We all wish that we were blessed with perfect, flawless skin, —reality
check—everyone is different and more often than not, blemish marks stay longer than
we would want them to. While color-correcting makeup and social media filters do the
trick, don’t you wish baring your skin is as easy as it sounds? Thankfully, beauty
powerhouse Olay has got you covered with the NEW cult fave–Olay Luminous
Niacinamide + AHA Serum and Moisturizer! This new lineup is designed with Olay’s

novel technology of Niacinamide and AHA proven to be effective with 96% noticing
reduction in acne marks or sunspots*.
Not sure what’s causing your blemish marks? It can be caused by a variety of things
such as exposure to UV rays, acne, and even hormonal changes. Some of the more
common blemish marks are:
 Melasma is brown patching on the skin that usually shows up on both sides of
your face in a symmetrical way.
 Freckles are small, flat spots on your face. They are usually harmless and having
them can be genetic.
 Sunspots are defined brown to black spots on the skin caused by, you guessed it
– the sun!
 Hyperpigmentation on your face usually develop after acne has dried out.
So what’s the secret to the ingredients?
While it can get frustrating to remove blemish marks, Olay has proven that you can now
lighten them effectively in as early as 28 days. The secret of Olay? Science, of course!
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
    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.

New Cult Fave Alert: Olay’s NEW AHA Line Launches in Shopee

Anyone who has struggled with blemish marks can understand how frustrating it is to
resort to hiding. Hiding them with your concealer, face masks or even using different
apps to erase the blemishes can only do so much. What’s worse is that some marks
take weeks—and even forever to fade. Well, if you can relate, Olay’s got you covered.
The beauty powerhouse recently launched its NEW Olay Luminous + AHA collection
exclusively in Shopee that combines the power of their signature ingredient
niacinamide, plus AHA, the new cult fave ingredient known for helping fade stubborn
blemish marks.

What Are Blemish Marks, And Where Do They Come From?
We’ve all had our fair share of blemish marks. Depending on the type, blemish marks
can appear light brown to gray patches, at times, some can look well-defined brown to
black spots.

Blemish marks are triggered by melanin imbalance, caused by varied external and
internal stressors such UV exposure, inflammation, and even hormonal changes. These
stressors trigger signals in skin that eventually cause melanin to be produced in a
concentrated fashion, leading to the appearance of a blemish.
There’s hope, though! With the right product formulation, melanin production can be
regulated and blemish marks can eventually be cleared.

AHA Craze

Filipinas have now discovered the power of serums and have relied on their specific ingredients to help their skin adapt to various conditions. Serums, compared to moisturizers, are lighter and have potent formulations that target skin concerns without drying the skin.

One of the most well-known and tried and tested skincare ingredients is Niacinamide. Niacinamide or Vitamin B3 is proven to helps visibly improve skin texture, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and bringing about firmer, brighter looking skin. It is also Olay’s main active ingredient that is responsible the millions of glow-ups it has given to people around the world.

This 2022, another skincare breakthrough steps into the spotlight, targeting a skin concern that most Filipinas are itching to take care of.

My Acne “Wake-up Call” | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

Taking off from last week’s MAKE-UP KIT DIET video, this week I’ll tell you more about what led me to minimize the make-up and skin care products I used on my skin: an acne breakout that wouldn’t go away with regular cleansing, toning, facials and zit solutions. I also talk about the importance of consulting with a board-certified dermatologist who can help you address your skin problems and skin care concerns.

Checking out the NU Skin Expo

Dave and I checked out the NU SKIN Expo held at the NU Skin Philippines HQ. We got to try out the Galvanic Spa (which helps combat aging!), their Epoch Essential Oils, their Trimshake and their body analysis machine which revealed that my body age is 5 years younger than my real age!

The S3 Biophotonic Scanner also revealed my skin carotenoid score which is an indicator of the tissue carotenoid concentration and antioxidant levels of my body. If you get a 10,000-19,000 score, that means 1) You don’t consume enough vegetables, fruits and supplements 2) You’re under a lot of stress; high sun and pollution exposure and 3) You smoke or are always exposed to someone who smokes.

If you get a 30,000-39,000 score, you 1) Get a moderate amount of fruits and vegetables 2) Have regular supplementation 3) Moderate stress, sun, and pollution exposure.

40,000-50,000 means you consume huge amounts of fruits and vegetables, have optimal supplementation, low stress, sun and pollution exposure. I was surprised that I got 60,000! 😀 All that vegan food is doing me good! Watch the different stations we visited in the vlog below

Yadah Review

Once upon a time in 2017, I met the Yadah crew from Korea at the Philbeauty fair. After an exchange of emails, they sent me products and I went on to try them out so I can share how they performed. Yadah products can be ordered online but they also have some available at the Beauty Bar.

Watch the video to see my review of Yadah’s Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser, Anti-T Red Zero Concealer, Revitalizing Jelly Pack and the Velvet Mood Lip Colors in Rosy Brown and Burgundy.
