Everything you need to know about Niacinamide
If you’re struggling with enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, or dullness - this blog post is for you. As one of the most popular ingredients in the skin care industry, niacinamide is really effective for the skin concerns mentioned above and more. Not only does it brighten the skin and make it appear less dull, it can also minimize the appearance of pores. And don’t we all want that?
What is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B-3 and it is a water-soluble ingredient that works with the natural substance of your skin to reduce the appearance of pores, even out skin tone, and make the skin appear less dull.
It reduces the appearance of skin discoloration by disrupting the formation of melanin (responsible for skin pigment). It also controls excess oil, reduces rosacea, acne inflammation, and pore size. The many benefits niacinamide provides for the skin ranks it as one of the most popular and effective ingredients in the skin care world.
How to use Niacinamide
Niacinamide is usually found in serums, toners, and moisturizers. It works great for all skin types since it’s a gentle ingredient, but it works best for those with dry skin as it boosts the hydrating ability of moisturizers.
Tip: Mix your Bright & Clear Cream with your moisturizer to get the benefits of the ingredients in the product plus an added boost of hydration. Both products mixed together leave your skin feeling hydrated and it makes your skin glow.
If you notice that your skin is dull or you are struggling with enlarged pores, it might be a good time to add niacinamide into your skin care routine. But how exactly do you introduce this ingredient into your routine?
Since niacinamide is a gentle ingredient, you can include it in your routine any time you decide. It’s always best to slowly introduce new products so that your skin does not have a bad reaction. This can look like applying a new serum or cream every other day and seeing if your skin reacts negatively to it, and if it doesn’t then you can increase it to every day.
