No matter how much expensive treat we give to our skin, it’s not necessary for our skin to respond accordingly. We all have a fair share of skin problems open pores, blemishes, acne, blackheads, whiteheads, and so on. No matter what over-the-counter products we try nothing seem to work. Our skin is an organ that I guess we all have neglected and thus feeds it only from outside but what about inside. Skin too needs vitamins and minerals to boost its elasticity and fight against the odds and the deficiency of these vitamins and minerals is the leading cause for many skin problems but we never thought this way around, right?
The beauty world is all raving about Niacinamide these days and you might be confused about what actually it is. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B-3, which is an essential nutrient for our skin organ. The deficiency of this can lead to many skin disorders (about which we were talking above). Niacinamide is everything our skin needs to fight internally with skin conditions like acne, open pores, eczema, basically every disorder your skin is going through. It acts as a barrier for our skin from environmental damages and also locks in the moisture.
Here, are detailed benefits of Niacinamide that will surely convince you to add this ingredient into your skincare regime.
Controls Sebum Production-
Oily skin tends to produce sebum in excess which acts as a breeding ground for problems like acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. The excessive sebum clogs the pores leading the pimple-causing bacteria to thrive. Niacinamide helps in controlling the excess sebum production thus keeping all the skin problems at bay. The B-3 vitamin adjusts the amount of oil sebaceous gland produces thus stopping your glands from going into overdrive.
Minimizes The Appearance Of Open Pores–
Our skin has millions of pores that are not visible to the naked eyes, but some pores expand in size and become visible mainly on the areas like nose, forehead, and chin. It’s really important to shrink the size of these pores and make them less noticeable for a smooth and glowing complexion. And Niacinamide works best in shrinking the size of pores.
If you are the one who is dealing with the problem of open pores from ages and nothing worked best. Niacinamide the natural vitamin B-3 is the one-stop solution for minimizing the size of pores. Though you need to be patient with the results, it is definitely something that works.
The skin inflammation can be a result of post-acne or skin disorders like eczema and rosacea. Both of which can cause a serious redness issue on the skin. Niacinamide works great in reducing the inflammation and restoring the natural complexion of the skin. Vitamin B-3 has anti-inflammatory properties that help to combat any sort of skin inflammation.
If you are suffering from post-acne inflammation or eczema or rosacea then we would recommend you use a serum or gel that has at least 10% of niacinamide formulation in it.
Builds Skin Immunity-
Niacinamide is a great ingredient that helps in building immunity for skin thus aiding the skin to fight against various skin disorders. The increased immunity also helps in the natural and fast healing of blemishes and post-acne scars.
Niacinamide produces Keratin, a type of protein that keeps our skin healthy and supple. The keratin is the reason for increased skin immunity that aids the recovery of the skin from a hell lot of problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, sun damage, oxidative stress, and blemishes.
We would highly recommend you to implement Niacinamide products in your skincare routine. It’s the best thing your skin needs. However, do a patch test before applying it over your face or any affected area you wish to. You can use it both AM and PM, it works best with any skincare routine you have.
