03.13.19 AD DISCLOSURE

Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence is a facial mist that instantly absorbs to hydrate dull, dry, and tight skin. This microfine mist contains an energizing blend of vitamin C (ascorbyl glucoside), bergamot, and niacinamide. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that provides the skin with protection against free radicals, the unstable molecules that contribute to the formation of premature wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. Vitamin C also has the ability to brighten skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots. The bergamot in the Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence functions to energize the skin with a refreshing scent.

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that acts as a precursor to the coenzymes NADH and NADPH. These coenzymes play an important role in cellular metabolism, which means they provide skin cells with the energy needed to function properly. In fact, these coenzymes are involved in more than 40 biochemical processes, including DNA repair and cell turnover. Niacinamide also has the ability to repair the skin barrier and improve skin moisture, as well as reduce inflammation, blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, acne, and wrinkling. Overall, the Olay Mist Ultimate Hydration Essence contains several beneficial ingredients that can hydrate and refresh dull, tired-looking skin.
