Niacinamide & Vitamin B3
What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide belongs to the vitamin B3 family and is essential for the proper functioning of the digestive, neurological, and brain systems. Its rich antioxidant properties make it highly beneficial for the skin. It protects the skin from the impacts of environmental aggressors, preventing premature ageing and dull skin.
What skin benefits does Niacinamide offer?
Minimizes signs of ageing
Vitamin B3 enhances skin texture and minimizes indications of ageing by preventing water loss and retaining moisture in the skin. Frequent use of niacinamide-containing products can help prevent skin issues related to ageing and help you appear younger. Vitamin B3 supplements can also enhance skin tone and texture, but they should not be used without consulting your doctor.
Enhances the epidermal layer
If you want healthy, bright, and young skin, you must have a strong epidermal layer. This keeps external elements like UV radiation, dust, and pollution away from the skin. Vitamin B3 increases lipid ceramide formation, which reinforces the epidermal barrier and retains moisture, keeping the skin smooth and supple.
Reduces the sensitivity of the skin
If you have skin issues such as redness, blotchiness, or sensitivity, vitamin B3 can help. The skin's capacity to protect itself from external aggressors improves when the epidermal barrier is reinforced. This reduces skin inflammation, redness, and sensitivity while also improving the skin's overall appearance.
Reduces pigmentation and uneven skin tone
The sun's damaging UV rays produce pigmentation and uneven skin tone on the skin. Applying skincare products containing vitamin B3 or niacinamide can help reduce pigment formation and transfer into the skin. This results in skin that is even-toned and clear.
One of the most beneficial aspects of niacinamide is that it promotes the use of potentially irritating anti-ageing agents that enhance skin cell turnover, such as retinol and alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) such as glycolic acid.
