It’s time to take the superhero powers of Niacinamide into your own hands. This powerful ingredient, also known as Vitamin B3, is a jack of all trades when it comes to improving the look, feel, and health of your skin—and you’re going to want to get your hands on it.
As we age, our skin’s ability to retain moisture and produce new cells diminishes. When this happens, skin can become fragile, dull, and lose its color. Niacinamide is a miracle worker in these instances.
What is Niacinamide?
This skin care superstar is an active form of Vitamin B3, and it can treat many skin conditions including dullness, fine lines, enlarged pores, and even acne. Studies have shown that it can also improve hyperpigmentation by reducing melanin and inflammation. It repairs damage to skin, delivers nutrients to it, and even boosts collagen production. This means that Niacinamide can keep your skin looking young, healthy, and radiant for years to come.
How does Niacinamide work?
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 found in yeast, meat, milk, eggs, beans, cereal grains and green vegetables. It's a water-soluble vitamin that helps calm inflammation by repairing the protective barrier of the skin which prevents trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Niacinamide also increases ceramides in your skin which help retain moisture, keeping your complexion hydrated and plump. The improved barrier function acts as a protective seal against environmental factors that can cause premature aging.
In addition to its anti-aging properties, Niacinamide is also an antioxidant that is effective in reducing uneven pigmentation by decreasing melanosome
It is also extremely effective at increasing moisture in the skin and this makes it great for people with dry or aging skin who want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Benefits of Niacinamide:
