What Does Niacinamide Do For Your Skin?
While it may sound like something you wouldn’t want anywhere near your skin, niacinamide is actually an extremely important factor in skin health for all skin types.
So, what is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 typically found in whole grains and certain greens. Every part of your body requires B3, and a lack of it can lead to kidney, brain, and skin disorders. Taking niacinamide supplements can help prevent B3 deficiency while other forms of it found in serums and moisturizers will do wonders for your skin.
I want the specifics – what can niacinamide do for your skin?
A lot! Niacinamide benefits the outer layer of one’s skin, improving its texture by making pores appear smaller, and increasing skin’s resilience. This is achieved by helping skin grow a lipid barrier which in turn helps skin retain more moisture. Niacinamide will also help build keratin, a protein that keeps skin firm and healthy. When using Niacinamide for your skin it reduces inflammation to ease redness from a variety of inflammatory skin conditions. The best part is it equally well for all skin types!
Cool, what skin conditions can benefit from niacinamide?
As previously mentioned, those with inflammatory skin conditions stand to benefit the most from niacinamide thanks to the keratin it builds, but all skin types can still reap the rewards of consistent use.
I’m in, now how do I use it and what do I use it with?
Niacinamide can be used for the skin daily, either in the morning or at night, but certain brands may have more specific instructions that come with their niacinamide products. It is important to establish a routine with these kinds of products though and once you’ve found one you like, perhaps Peach and Lily’s Glass Skin Refining Serum or Wild Dew Treatment Essence, be sure to stick with it to enjoy the benefits of niacinamide. It can be used alongside anything, really, but works best with an accompanying moisturizer.
