Meet niacinamide. Also known as vitamin B3, this unsung hero is now trending, thanks to its transformational ability to promote a balanced, even skin tone and reduce redness, dark spots and dark circles under the eyes. It also protects collagen from premature destruction, reduces inflammation, and prevents dehydration.
Here’s everything you need to know about this star all-rounder.
What is niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of your skin. In recent years, it has garnered attention for its versatile and wide-ranging benefits, from skin brightening to anti-aging. It can be found in all kinds of skincare products, including serums, creams, and moisturizers.
The benefits of niacinamide
Niacinamide does it all! It helps reduce redness and calm irritated skin, and regulates sebum production, so is perfect for those prone to acne.
If you have enlarged pores, it will tighten and minimize them, and it evens skin tone, so you can say goodbye to hyperpigmentation and dark spots. It helps your skin retain moisture and fend off environmental stressors, stimulates collagen production, and is suitable for all skin types - even dry or sensitive skin.
