Niacinamide…despite its complicated name….is an amazing skincare ingredient that is most likely missing from your routine. Niacinamide, or more commonly known as vitamin B3, is a water-soluble nutrient that when applied directly to the skin, can prevent environmental wear and tear, while simultaneously reducing the visible signs of existing damage.
B3 & Acne
Currently, B3 is being studied for its uses against acne, and have been proven to be quite effective! Some of the individual benefits include:
- Reduces sebum production
- Increased skin hydration
- Improves skin texture and brightens skin tone
Furthermore, in recent studies, those with moderate acne that was treated with B3 gel showed an 82% reduction in acne lesions. In addition, this nutrient is gentle and compatible with many skin care products such as toners, serums, moisturizers, etc.
