If there has ever a skincare ingredient that suits, improves and perfects all skin types, it’s Niacinamide.
Commonly known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a water soluble vitamin, part of the Vitamin B group, that our body needs but does not naturally produce. Although it is important to our overall health, Niacinamide has been found to have wonderful perfecting properties on the skin.
Known to help reduce inflammation, soothe and hydrate the skin, Niacinamide should have a place in all of our beauty routines.
Why is Niacinamide good for your skin?
Whatever your skin type, Niacinamide can help to improve the appearance and healthy-look of your complexion.
Perfect for those with acne or rosacea, it works to soothe irritation and inflammation, taking down any signs of redness to leave your skin looking and feeling calm and soothed. Such properties makes also makes Niacinamide a wonderful ingredient for skin with hyper pigmentation as creams and lotions which infused with the ingredient also work to even out tone and texture for a beautifully flawless complexion.
Dry skin can also benefit from a skincare routine which includes Niacinamide as it works to boost your skin’s natural collagen and ceramide production which plump and hydrate the skin. Ceramides also work to form a protective barrier over the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion to be somewhat protected against external aggressors and pollution.
Whether your skin is dry, oily or acne prone, it needs hydration and plumpness to look and feel its best. Niacinamide is the perfect ingredient to help you achieve a smooth, even complexion and should be a staple in any routine.
Best in leave-on products, such as moisturisers and serums rather than masks and cleansers, Niacinamide will continue to work and treat your skin both day and nigth when applied twice a day.
