Why use a Niacinamide Serum?
If you've been following along for a little while now you will know that one of our favourite skincare ingredients is Niacinamide due to how versatile it is at treating a broad range of skin concerns.
Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin that has been shown to provide numerous benefits for the skin. It is a versatile ingredient that works well for almost all skin types and can be easily incorporated into your existing skincare routine.
Here are some of the key benefits of using Niacinamide that we love:
Improves skin barrier function: Niacinamide helps to strengthen the skin's barrier, which helps to retain moisture and protect against environmental stressors and is a great way of preventing many other skin concerns.
Reduces hyperpigmentation: Niacinamide has been shown to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and dark spots, making it an effective ingredient for those concerned with uneven skin tone.
Minimizes pores: Niacinamide has been shown to help reduce the appearance of pores, giving the skin a smoother, more even texture.
Anti-inflammatory properties: Niacinamide has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce redness and irritation in the skin.
Helps with acne: Niacinamide has been shown to be effective in reducing acne, by reducing sebum production and decreasing inflammation.
Overall, Niacinamide is a powerful ingredient that can provide numerous benefits for your skin. If you're looking to incorporate it into your routine, look for products that contain a concentration of at least 5% Niacinamide - like our Skin Boost Serum!
