Niacinamide has to be the most hyped skincare ingredient to date. I am currently a part of a cheerleading team …that is all about niacinamide and its goodness. We are currently cheering for people to start using it in their skincare routines. Niacinamide is an all-around pleaser when it comes to its benefits. It can accommodate most skincare types but there is a select few that are too sensitive to it. I very much enjoy using niacinamide in my morning and nighttime routine … here is why!
Niacinamide has been around in the skincare industry .. its main reason for its popularity was the skincare brand The Ordinary. Which ultimately introduced us to the use of actives in our skincare routines.
There are a ton of benefits when it comes to Niacinamide. I have listed them down below.
- Minimize enlarged pores
- Regulate oil production
- Tighten lax pores
- Improve uneven skin tone
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
- Diminish dullness
Niacinamide helps support the skin barrier which is an area in my skin that needs much-needed attention. I have compromised my skin barrier in the past which has resulted in me having a lot of issues with my skin. Barrier support was a selling point for me and the fact that it can improve my hyperpigmentation is a double plus.
I have been working on my skin for several years. Taking Niacinamide is a form of a supplement that has not been very beneficial. To reap the most skincare benefits, apply niacinamide topically in the form of a cream, lotion, or serum—anything that will stay in contact with your skin for plenty of time.
I hope my short love letter to why niacinamide is such a favorite for me. Helps you find products that will help you in the quest of getting good healthy skin.
