Ingredient 101: Niacinamide

Ingredient 101: Niacinamide

Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3, is a vital nutrient for the skin and is even known to be a “must-have” in your skincare regimen for the numerous benefits it provides. Among the key benefits Niacinamide provides, one is its ability to produce ceramides to retain water and moisture in the skin while also keeping the skin barrier strong. Regular use of Niacinamide can also help reduce excessive oils, redness, blotchiness, hyperpigmentation, and sensitivity brought by a poorly functioning skin barrier. Another amazing benefit that Niacinamide provides is that it boosts collagen production to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

What Type of Skin Benefits the Most From Niacinamide?
