Olay is a brand known for its great beauty products. Under their Pro-X line of products is the Wrinkle Smoothing Cream which claims to reduce problems such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark lines under the eyes and other discolorations in the skin. This particular product works best for smoothing out uneven texture of the skin to give you skin that is nice and soft to touch. It does this mainly by using moisture to even out and increase the size of your smaller cells so that your skin can attain a regular surface.
The active ingredient of OLAY Wrinkle Smoothing Cream is niacinamide, or more commonly known as vitamin B3. This vitamin is needed for the formation of the co-enzymes NADH and NADPH, which are needed for lipid synthesis and the production of cell energy. Energy is required by all cells so that they can repair and regenerate any damages that have occurred. Increased lipid synthesis on the other hand, helps the skin retain moisture so that your skin will look better while also decreasing any rough patches on the surface of the skin. Another ingredient of OLAY Wrinkle Smoothing Cream is carnosine, which decreases the rate of aging by inhibiting glycation. Glycation is a process that is closely related to the aging effects in the body such as wrinkling, thinning of the skin and formation of age spots. By inhibiting this process, the aging process will significantly be slowed down. Other ingredients of OLAY Wrinkle smoothing cream are various peptides and elastin which also support cell regeneration and increased elasticity of the skin. This way, it is more resistant to forming wrinkles, as well as it has a higher capability of repairing any damaged tissues.
