Worthy of your attention and an ingredient your skin will L O V E you for using. Sitting high in the ranks of *pretty amazing* skincare ingredients (think Vitamin C, Retinol, Hyaluronic Acid) if you haven’t already, it’s time to add Niacinamide to your skincare routine.

What are the benefits of Niacinamide?

Also known as vitamin B3, this incredible skincare ingredient is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, smooth uneven skin tone, soften signs of ageing, brighten dull skin, aaaand strengthen a weakened moisture barrier by helping to improve your skin’s natural production of ceramides. Like retinol it’s going to strengthen your skin barrier (but without any of the sensitivity or irritation), like an antioxidant it’s going to limit free radical damage and like hyaluronic it can help prevent transepidermal water loss, boosting the ability of other moisturising ingredients as it works. Sounds too good to be true right?

Well… it’s not. With more than a few scientific studies to back up it’s claims, Niacinamide has taken the skincare world by storm, and for good reason.

How do I use Niacinamide?

So… you’ve sold it to me, the benefits of Niacinamide sound incredible. But how do I add Niacinamide to my routine? It’s actually super easy, to reap all those benefits you can just apply it topically as part of your skincare routine. From serum to lotion, any time of day and layered however you see best.
