Niacin or Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3. It is a skin-loving water-soluble vitamin. Dermatologists recommend using Vitamin B3 for those with problematic skin. Whether it is blemished, it is reddened, or sensitive. It helps improve the skin's barrier, inhibits pigmentation, improves micro-circulation, and is a potent antioxidant. It even helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Using a 5% concentration of niacinamide can help reduce the face's redness and promote a healthy complexion.
