Niacinamide, vitamin B3 is one of the most potent anti-inflammatories in skincare. But what’s really remarkable about it is its ability to multi-task. The single ingredient can gently tackle an impressive stack of skin complaints in one hit.
Niacinamide increases cellular energy, improving cell turnover, microcirculation and antioxidant protection – all of this helps slow skin ageing , It’s also required for collagen synthesis, and since collagen is the essential building block for plump, youthful looking skin, that’s good news for fresh-looking skin.
It will help to brighten the skin as well as reduce the production of melanin, which is what causes dark spots.
Any skin type and age can benefit from using niacinamide in their skincare routine. Ideally you should use it twice a day, both morning and evening.
