Well then meet Niacinamide! Learn more about how this ingredient has become one of the most in-demand products in skincare & why it's now a favorite amongst skincare enthusiasts.
Niacinamide is Vitamin B3, also known as nicotinamide and it is a powerful antioxidant. It is a water-soluble vitamin that we don’t produce in our bodies. This is why topical application is so important to receive all of its benefits of improving the look of the signs of aging. This ingredient works well in a range of skin care products, but it is especially good in serums and moisturizers so it can remain on the skin to work its magic.
One major benefit of Niacinamide is that it works well with all skin types, but it is especially beneficial for oily, combination, sensitive skin, and even breakout-prone skin. It also helps other skin care ingredients like Retinol, Glycolic Acid, Vitamin C and Salicylic Acid work more effectively, and it can be used morning and night. It is incredibly versatile and easy to integrate into your skincare routine and with your skin care products. It is the ultimate skin care sidekick.
Note: We used to think that you could not combine Vitamin C and Niacinamide, however we now know that you can! A quality Niacinamide product can be used with a stable Vitamin C, like Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, found in the goPure serums, as well.
Niacinamide specifically improves the appearance of enlarged pores and oiliness on the skin and is a cornerstone ingredient for these concerns. With regular use, skin looks more hydrated and appears smoother and brighter. Another set of concerns that niacnamide is recommended for is uneven skin tone, discoloration, dark spots, and hyperpigmentation. It can also have a beneficial impact on the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and firm the look of skin. The appearance of redness has also been shown to be improved and it has even shown to improve the look of sallowness, so skin looks calm and even-toned.
It is important to note that some people may flush initially when applying a topical niacinamide product, however this typically goes away quickly and is usually not a negative reaction, but a normal response of the skin to Vitamin B3.
This supportive ingredient can help manage the possible impact of a skin care routine rich in active ingredients as it helps maintain the look of hydrated, soothed, calmed skin.
