In recent years, taking care of our skin has become an essential part of our routine. Experts and specialist brands are taking more and more seriously the task of formulating effective and gentle products for the skin.
Niacinamide is one of the ingredients that has managed to gain great popularity in recent times, being frequently used to improve the appearance of our face. Added to our basic products or used as a concentrated serum, this component is becoming an essential part of skin care for many.
What is niacinamide?
It is one of the variants of vitamin B3, which can be found in nature in plant roots and in different foods, such as meat, fish, milk, vegetables and cereals. However, when used for cosmetics, it is a water-soluble substance, capable of penetrating the stratum corneum of our skin.
The two main advantages that the use of this component can bring to our skin are antioxidation and depigmentation. In general, it is a highly beneficial ingredient for unifying skin color, reducing blemishes, preventing redness, as well as controlling sebum and inflammation.
Therefore, it can be a great ally for:
–Skin prone to acne: precisely because of its ability to reduce sebum production and its anti-inflammatory properties.
–Improves the general appearance of the skin: helps to unify the tone of our face, and improves the appearance of our natural color.
–Reduces wrinkles: niacinamide is able to reduce the damage caused to our skin by UVB rays. It helps to repair the cells that have been affected, protecting us from the effects of photo-aging. In addition, it increases the production of collagen.
–Regenerate the skin’s protective barrier: it manages to avoid the loss of transepidermal water, and increase the production of new ceramides.
–Helps remove age spots: this component is capable of inhibiting the transfer of melanosome from melanocytes to keratinocytes. This results in the improvement of spots and redness.
