Will Your Skin Benefit From Niacinamide?


This heavyweight ingredient is popping up in skincare all over the show, and I can see why. Commonly known as vitamin B3, niacin, and nicotinamide, this super-strong antioxidant is known for its anti-aging and anti-breakout benefits. Also, its ability to boost skin brightness while reducing redness and reducing sensitivity. Whatever you’re looking for in your skincare, Niacinamide has you covered!


There’s not much vitamin B3 can’t do! It reduces signs of aging by increasing collagen production and reducing hyperpigmentation. Breakout-prone skin loves it balancing oil production and reducing enlarged pores. It possesses anti-inflammatory properties, which is key for reducing breakouts and redness. It increases skin barrier function, for reduced sensitivity and increased hydration.


If you’re concerned about signs of aging, niacinamide is an ingredient you’ll definitely want in your routine. It helps in a variety of ways, including reducing fine lines and skin yellowing, as well as increasing barrier function. Studies have shown that prolonged use (12 weeks or longer of continuous use) leads to reduced fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide effectively fights the yellowing of skin - a result of photoaging - by inhibiting oxidative processes, such as protein oxidation, that occur in the skin after sun exposure. As we know, dehydrated skin is one of the main signs of aging in our skin. It helps the skin to produce more of what it needs to better retain moisture, resulting in hydrated, plump skin. Niacinamide also helps with the appearance of under-eye circles, plumps, and firms with hydration and lessens the appearance of crow's feet.


Clinical studies worldwide have seen some amazing results when treating hyperpigmentation and melasma with vitamin B3. Niacinamide works to inhibit the transfer of pigment within cells.
