Although there is no magic potion in skincare, Vitamin B3 comes pretty close. Vitamin B3 does wonders for your digestive system, brain functioning and the health of your skin, acting as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. In skincare, Vitamin B3 is often used in the form of niacinamide. Using skincare products with concentrated niacinamide can provide a number of benefits for the health and appearance of your skin.
Decrease signs of aging
Niacinamide has been shown to reduce redness, blotchiness, wrinkling and pigmentation – all signs of aging in the skin. Vitamin B3 acts as a powerful anti-aging ingredient, minimizing the common skincare problems that appear with age.
Maintain your skin’s natural barrier
The epidermal barrier is what protects your skin from environmental stressors, providing hydration and strengthening skin. Vitamin B3 can help increase ceramide production, resulting in less sensitive and more hydrated skin.
Protect against sun damage
Our skin gradually breaks down due to the long-term effects of sun exposure. Niacinamide protects skin cells from damage caused by UV rays, as well as rebuilds healthy skin. Not to be taken as a replacement for SPF, Vitamin B3 is a great addition to your skin protection routine.
Vitamin B3 often works as an anti-inflammatory agent throughout the body. For some people, using Vitamin B3 in skin care can reduce severe acne that is often caused through inflammation. Overtime, regular use of Vitamin B3 can improve skin texture and reduce acne outbreaks.
