Also known as Vitamin B3, niacinamide is an essential nutrient our body’s rely upon for good health. A body lacking niacinamide may result in unwanted conditions, therefore maintaining your niacinamide levels is not only good for your skin, but for your health.

Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that functions with natural substances in the skin to renew the skin’s barrier, brighten, lighten, tighten the skin, balance oil production, restore damaged DNA, act as an anti-inflammatory, and more!

Our new product, 10% Niacinamide Serum, contains a 5% niacinamide concentration purposed to improve your skin without causing irritation. We’ve put just the right amount of niacinamide to benefit your skin, without being too aggressive.

In this post, we will discuss the benefits of niacinamide, the difference between topical niacinamide and niacinamide supplements regarding skin health, and our 10% Niacinamide Serum!

Niacinamide Benefits

Niacinamide is a stable vitamin we cannot produce on our own, incorporating it in our skin care routine and diet is imperative for personal wellness. So, what are the benefits of this all-encompassing skin care ingredient?

Niacinamide…

Restores the skin’s natural barrier.

Before we get into any other benefits, the main benefit of niacinamide is that it replenishes your skin’s natural barrier. Without a healthy skin barrier, your skin will not be cooperative with what you are wanting it do, or how you are wanting it to look. Taking care of the foundation of your skin before specifically addressing skin concerns will save you a lot of time and frustration!

Soothes the skin.

Because niacinamide plays a part in maintaining the health of the skin’s barrier, this can help lock in moisture and defend unwanted irritants. This creates a safe environment for those with sensitive skin.

Niacinamide boasts of anti-inflammatory properties that welcomes kin needing to be soothed. An experiment concluded that topical niacinamide, in addition to calcipotriene (medication,) greatly heals those with psoriasis.

Offers deep moisturizing properties.

Niacinamide can hydrate the skin as the day is long. One study uncovered that niacinamide proved to be a superior skin hydrator in comparison to petrolatum jelly! Unlike petrolatum jelly, niacinamide immensely reduced transepidermal water loss (water evaporating from the skin’s surface which can lead to an array of concerns) in the skin; making it the better moisturizer.

Prevents premature aging due to sun exposure.

You can protect your skin with more than sunscreen and healthy sub habits by using niacinamide. Its efficient makeup can reconstruct healthy skin cells and protect them from harmful sun rays. This rejuvenation of DNA can dramatically improve the skin by working from the inside out!

Reduces hyperpigmentation.

While the sun is top culprit for causing hyperpigmentation, there are other reasons you may be experiencing skin discoloration, such as hormonal fluctuations.

A natural way to correct hyperpigmentation is to regularly apply a product infused with niacinamide... Like our 10% Niacinamide Serum! Concentrations of 5% niacinamide move through various pathways to stop fresh skin discolorations from surfacing.

Combat what hyperpigmentation has yet to come, or combat what hyperpigmentation you have. Data discloses that niacinamide acts as a successful skin lightening ingredient. It can be consistently applied to even out your skin’s tone and lighten any dark spots.

Regulations oil production.

Make peace with your oily skin with a daily dose of niacinamide! Separate clinical trials were held in both Japan and the USA to determine how 2% niacinamide affected the facial oil production of different ethnic groups. Results showed that the 2% niacinamide did have a significant impact on lowering the amount of oil produced and oil levels in both groups!

Moreover, niacinamide is infamous for minimizing the appearance of pore size, as well as clearing the gunk out that enlarge your pores to begin with. A 12-week study discovered that the use of topical salicylic acid and niacinamide resulted in smaller pore sizes, fewer visible pores, and improved skin texture.

Fights aging.

When it comes to lovers and fighters, there aren’t many lovers when it comes to aging; mostly fighters. Niacinamide is a preferred skin care ingredient among experts to refine fine lines and wrinkles. Reason being is it stimulates collagen production, along with the production of other proteins that contribute to the skin’s youthful appearance!

Topical Niacinamide Vs. Niacinamide Supplements

Niacinamide can be used topically or taken via supplements. Research reveals that topical niacinamide has a more powerful effect on the skin, rather than niacinamide supplements.

While there are benefits to orally intaking niacinamide, there does pose health risks and the chance of nutrients not fully impacting your skin’s health. Thankfully, most people receive enough niacinamide through their normal diets and therefore, supplements are not typically recommended.

If taken orally, take no more than 35 milligrams per day to stay on the safe side. Unless advised by a doctor, stick to topical niacinamide for your individualized, skin care pursuits!

10% Niacinamide Serum

Safe for all skin types, our 10% Niacinamide Serum is just the serum you need in your skin care line-up! Apart from containing 5% niacinamide, it additionally includes other powerhouse ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and zinc PCA.

Haluronic acid provides a boost of hydration, aloe vera calms the skin, and zinc PCA helps manage normal oil levels. Together, these ingredients make for an effective serum suitable for those looking to maintain, protect, and repair their skin.

Whether you’re looking to tame your acne-prone skin, treat hyperpigmentation, or defy the aging process, this serum will help you get the results you’re desiring!

To use this serum, apply only a few drops to bare, cleansed skin. Firmly pat the serum on your skin to ensure it optimally penetrates. Follow-up with a moisturizer or facial oil to seal the deal. Feel free to use this product both morning and night! As always, follow it with an SPF, if used in the AM.

While niacinamide has been found to protect the skin from the sun, it’s still a smart idea to shield your skin with further protection by adding an extra layer of SPF.
