et Skin Series: Niacinamide

Fri, Feb. 9, 2018
CAIRO – 9 February 2018: Niacinamide, which is also known as vitamin B3 and niacin, is a vitamin that has multiple benefits for your skin and is an extremely versatile ingredient in skin care.

It is a water-soluble vitamin that can help improve your skin visibly by improving the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened surface. It can also reduce the damage that environmental attack can cause.

What makes niacinamide so versatile is that it is uniquely compatible with any of the products in your skincare routine, including those that contain retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHAs BHA, and all types of antioxidants. This means it can be used as an ingredient in any step in the routine.

Another helpful benefit of niacinamide is that it can help renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration. In fact, niacinamide has been shown to boost the hydrating ability of moisturizers, so the skin’s surface learns to resist moisture loss better, meaning less dryness and tightness occurs in your skin. Niacinamide is also an antioxidant, and while many antioxidants prevent damage caused by oxidative stress and environmental factors, niacinamide goes one step further and reverses the visible signs brought about by the onslaught.
