What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is also referred to as vitamin B3. It is an essential nutrient that maintains healthy body function and your skin for lipid barrier repairing and enhancing the appearance of skin immunity. It is an important skin communicator to minimise pore size appearance and reduce photo damage, and assists in regulating signs of oil for the appearance of youthful and balanced look.
How does Niacinamide help the skin?
Vitamin B3 is a must have in any skincare routine, as it plays a role in several components of your skin health and appearance.
- Niacinamide improves epidermal barrier performance
When the epidermal lipid barrier is functioning at its best, your skin appears and feels at its best. The barrier helps retain moisture allowing your skin to stay hydrated for longer. This also protects it from the outside environment and visible signs of creasing.
- Regulates facial oil flow
When your skin retains its natural moisture due to an optimal lipid barrier the natural oils produced by the skin are under control. This means less oil, less blockages, and smaller chance of acne break outs.
- Boosts the immunity of your skin
Langerhans cells are responsible for the protection and repair mechanisms of your skin. When they are exposed to sunlight, they temporarily retreat leaving the skin without its immunity. Vitamin B helps strengthen these cells and therefore boosts the overall immunity.
- Improves even colour in the skin
If your skin suffers from redness and blotchiness, vitamin B3 can help counteract it. Since the epidermal barrier is strengthened your skin will feel less irritation from the outside environment. This means redness, blotchiness, and any sensitivity will decrease.
Why get Niacinamide in your skincare routine?
These are just some of the benefits your skin will experience with added Niacinamide in the skincare routine. As opposed to eating vitamin B3, topical application will help it penetrate faster and show instant results. So help support your skin barrier to boost resilience and texture on your face!
