Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is a powerhouse at gently tackling an impressive amount of skincare issues. This super skincare ingredient is proven to smooth out fine lines, fade hyperpigmentation, reduce excess oil production, and prevent vital moisture loss that leaves skin ageing before its time.
One of the hero benefits of niacinamide is that it boosts the production of ceramides to strengthen the skin’s lipid barrier. When the skin’s lipid barrier is doing its job properly, our skin looks luminous, smooth, even and calm. When it’s weakened or stressed by pollutants and toxins that inflame, clog and irritate the skin, it needs a helping hand to get back on track.
What Is Niacinamide?
Niacinamide skincare helps prevent fewer environmental pollutants and toxins from getting past your skin’s lipid barrier, reducing inflammation, excess oil and clogged pores that can lead to acne and blemishes.
It’s fair to say that niacinamide serums are superpowers in their own right. But what happens when this ingenious vitamin B3 is combined with the mineral power of zinc?
Magic. That’s what.
Similar to niacinamide, Zinc skincare is a rock star when it comes to battling acne and blemishes. It helps keep good and bad microbes in harmony, regulate oil production, and its bacteria-fighting properties are proven to reduce inflammation and help clear acne-causing bacteria from the skin’s surface. Anything that reduces excess oil, unclogs pores and minimises inflammation, can certainly help when it comes to treating blemishes and acne.
When it comes to powerful skincare combos, niacinamide and zinc products are most definitely a pair to be reckoned with. The double impact of regulating oil production, minimising pores, and helping prevent bacteria from clogging the skin and passing through the skin’s lipid barrier, is the kind of dream team that makes a big difference to how your skin looks and feels.
The result? Less sensitivity, less excess oil, and more of what we love: dewy, even, healthier-looking skin.
