The Powers Of Niacinamide For Skin

The Powers Of Niacinamide For Skin

Unlock the full potential of your skincare routine by incorporating niacinamide 

Hydration is the key to maintaining healthy and youthful skin for years to come. As we age, our skin tends to lose its elasticity and ability to retain moisture. Skincare products infused with the right ingredients help us to combat that deficit. Niacinamide or vitamin B3 is one such ingredient that is versatile and suitable for all skin types. It is a humectant that improves the skin's lipid barriers and helps to retain hydration for a long time. Read on to learn all about incorporating it wisely into your daily skincare routine. 

Benefits of niacinamide 

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. It is an active ingredient with multi-faceted benefits for your skin and hair. Including it in your daily skincare routine will provide several benefits, as follows: 

Reduces inflammation

Niacinamide is soothing to your skin and prevents inflammation, redness, allergies and itchiness triggered by sun exposure or other environmental triggers. This makes it a great ingredient for your summer skincare routine and for sensitive skin. 

Improves lipid barrier

It strengthens the skin's natural barrier and prevents damage from external radicals. It helps to develop the lipid barrier that improves the moisture retention of your skin. You can particularly experience this benefit by including a niacinamide serum like B3 Super Serum daily in your nightly skincare routine. 

Protects from sun damage

The ingredient actively helps to build healthy skin cells. This protects your skin from UV damage and the rapid cell turnover maintains your skin’s radiance. 

Reduces early signs of ageing

Due to the regenerative ability of the ingredient as well as collagen-boosting benefits, niacinamide helps to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. 

Prevents acne and hyperpigmentation

Acne and hyperpigmentation get prevented as the ingredient prevents excess sebum production and also fades away minor scars through cell regeneration. 

Different ways to use niacinamide 

From face washes, and serums, to moisturisers, niacinamide is found in various skincare products these days. You can reap the maximum benefits topically by choosing a serum whose primary ingredient is niacinamide. The Dr. G B3 Super Serum Niacinamide and Zinc is one such product. It blends two powerhouse ingredients, niacinamide and zinc, that actively prevent skin damage from environmental stressors and dehydration. 

The best way to use the product is either during your nighttime skincare routine or even during the day. Simply wash your face with a mild cleanser. Use a toner to neutralise the tautness experienced after cleansing. Follow it with the serum and give it a few minutes to the skin to absorb it. Lastly, finish off with a moisturiser. 

In the long run, using the niacinamide serum will improve the skin texture, make the skin tone uniform and pustules and lesions will get minimised. The benefits are not just superficial. It nourishes the skin deeply and as a result, you witness naturally glowing and blemish-free skin. 

Niacinamide is one of the most popular active ingredients you will come across today. It is mild and suitable for all skin types and boosts skin hydration manifolds. At Skin by Dr G, we have formulated a powerful serum with this key ingredient that is a powerhouse of benefits. In the long run, get hydrated and nourished skin that remains radiant in all seasons.
