Why Niacinamide Should Be In Your Skincare Routine...

Whether you are oily, dry, mature, sensitive or anything in between, Niacinamide has a place in your routine. 

Quite simply, every skintype can benefit from this wonder ingredient. It’s quite the buzz word in the beauty industry at the moment and for a good reason. It has a multitude of benefits and really is the one vitamin everyone could do with adding to their skincare line up. 

Let me explain… Niacinamide is the active form of niacin, which is also known as Vitamin B3. It readily penetrates into the skin and has so many skin loving benefits. Whether you are oily, dry, mature, sensitive or anything in between, Niacinamide has a place in your routine. 

FADES PIGMENTATION

Niacinamide has proven to be an excellent treatment for pigmentation, age spots and melasma. With studies proving results can show after around four weeks using as little as 2% niacinamide. Glowy, brighter skin incoming!

REDUCES FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

Always a good thing! Niacinamide increases collagen production and helps speed up cellular turnover, leading to increased elasticity and firmness. It also helps fight free radicals, as it helps to protect the skin from oxidative stress, which is known to accelerate skin ageing. 

HELP TREAT ACNE AND REGULATE OIL PRODUCTION

It has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help calm and soothe skin, therefore making it a saviour for rosacea sufferers or for acne flare ups. It helps reduce sebum production, slowing down the release of sebum rather than just mopping up the excess oil. 

MINIMISES PORES AND IMPROVES SKIN TEXTURE

Smooth operator… niacinamide clinically reduces pore size and smooths the texture of the skin. This leads back to the fact it reduces sebum. Pores always look larger when trapped with sebum and dead skin, as they have to stretch to compensate. By preventing enlarged pores whilst normalising, balancing and tightening, it contributes towards baby soft skin. 

IMPROVES BARRIER FUNCTION

If your skin is showing signs of a compromised barrier, for example sensitivity, breakouts, redness to name a few, then niacinamide is your best friend. It reduces water loss and increases moisture levels resulting in a stronger, more tolerant skin barrier. By improving the skin’s natural strengthening ceramides, it prevents it from becoming vulnerable to a number of issues. 

REDUCES SALLOWNESS

Over time and with age, our skin can take on a yellow cast due to the powers of oxidative stress, which increases as we get older. Fortunately, studies show that its antioxidant properties prevent and significantly reduces this. 

THIS WATER-SOLUBLE VITAMIN PLAYS WELL WITH MANY INGREDIENTS AND IS SUPER VERSATILE, BRINGING MANY TOPICAL BENEFITS THAT HAVE BEEN PROVEN TO HARNESS SIGNIFICANT RESULTS. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
