Ingredient Highlight! Niacinamide

Are you looking to fight acne and scarring? Niacinamide can help.

Want to lighten up hyperpigmentation? Niacinamide can do that too. 

Trying to strengthen your skin barrier?  Guess what, niacinamide has got you covered!

What is this superstar ingredient that seems to be the answer to all skin problems? 

Niacinamide is a skin-friendly form of vitamin B3 known to encourage the production of collagen, keratin, filaggrin and involucrin. Increased production of these proteins translates into a better skin structure, smoother skin and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. In even better news, every skin type and age can use this ingredient. 

A study was conducted in 2005 to determine the effect of topical niacinamide on the skin .  50 women with signs of aging like wrinkles, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation applied niacinamide to only half of their face twice daily for 12 weeks. At the end of the study researchers found that the side that used niacinamide saw a significant improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and skin elasticity.

The Benefits of Niacinamide

#1 Even-tones and Fades Dark Spots

If you've suddenly started noticing dark spots on your skin, it may be time to turn to a new friend for help – topical niacinamide. Niacinamide is an active form of vitamin B3 that has been proven to even skin tone and fight free radical damage.

#2 Clears Up Complexion

For a clear complexion, adding niacinamide to your skin care routine may help. Niacinamide can help balance natural oils and sebum, and will also work as a soothing treatment for irritated areas of the skin. This reduces breakouts and visible redness.

#3 Protection from External Stressors

Your skin is a highly sensitive organ, exposed to the elements every day. Stress, smoke, UV rays, and pollution all take their toll on skin cells and collagen. This can lead to wrinkles, dryness, and uneven skin tone. Take action with niacinamide, containing antioxidants that help protect your skin cells from external stressors. 

#4 Boost Hydration

Boost the benefits of your niacinamide routine by adding hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid. This will help you achieve skin that's more hydrated, supports the production of ceramides, and has a healthy barrier function.

#5 Calms Irritation

Niacinamide minimizes irritation by calming visible redness and soothing the skin. It’s a great product to use with powerful exofilaitnts that irritate the skin, such as retinoids
