Niacinamide the Ultimate Multi-Tasker
Niacinamide is the magical ingredient that does it all.
An ingredient which is the talk of the town and rightly so, it’s worthy of your attention.
VITAMIN B3 AND NICOTINAMIDE , NIACINAMIDE IS A WATER-SOLUBLE VITAMIN.
Niacinamide (vitamin B3) is a stable vitamin that offers a wide range of well-documented topical benefits. Niacinamide helps hydrate skin, treats hyper pigmentation, promotes skin elasticity, decreases redness and blotchiness and acts as an antioxidant, fighting free radicals.
This guide covers everything about Niacinamide and its benefits.
Niacinamide is a vitamin that works with natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, tighten lax pores, improves uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness and strengthen a weekend skin surface.
It is best known as an anti-inflammatory agent. Not only does Niacinamide help improve your skin’s barrier function, which is important in preventing inflammation, but it also acts as an antioxidant, i.e, it helps protect your skin against environmental stressors that can cause irritation.
A MAGIC POTION THAT PREVENTS ACNE?
Yes, Niacinamide helps regulate and stabilize oil production in the skin. This goes back to restoring the strength of the skin barrier and, more specifically, the sebaceous glands in the skin that produce oil. In helping to even out the amount of oil the skin produces, Niacinamide can help tame and prevent acne.
Adding Niacinamide into your skincare routine can literally help lighten the skin over weeks.
NIACINAMIDE IMPROVES SIGNS OF AGING
It helps to inhibit protein glycation of collagen, a normal process in the body that occurs with age that creates more rigid collagen fibers. By preventing this, Niacinamide can help to improve fine lines and wrinkles.
NIACINAMIDE REDUCES THE APPEARANCE OF PORES
Excess sebum is associated with enlarged pores, and, as we learned Niacinamide helps control sebum production. So, coming full circle, Niacinamide at the very least positively impacts the appearance of pores size.
NIACINAMIDE ISN’T EVERYONE’S BFF
Strong concentrations can cause irritation and/or facial flushing when layered on top.
Higher percentage in a concentration does not really mean that the affectivity is going to be higher or the results are going to be faster.
Your skin does not necessarily need a higher concentrated formulation.
2%-5% is optimum for beginners.
