Whatever your biggest beauty challenge or skin concerns, you've probably heard of Niacinamide (Vitamin B3).
This powerhouse ingredient is fantastic at gently tackling an impressive amount of skincare issues. Whether you want to nourish dry skin, combat lost skin tone, improve skin texture, or reduce enlarged pores and excess oil, the list of benefits from a topical Niacinamide serum or supplement is impressive.
This super skin health ingredient is proven to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, fade hyperpigmentation, balance oily skin, and prevent vital moisture loss that leaves skin ageing before its time.
One of the hero Niacinamide benefits 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.
Niacinamide serum, supplements and skincare can help 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.
For example, our Hydro-Bound Daily Serum contains Niacinamide to empower the skin to rebuild and improve its own structure for a firmer and smoother complexion - with many other benefits too!
It’s fair to say that Niacinamide is a beauty superpower in its own right. But what happens when this ingenious vitamin B3 is combined with the mineral power of zinc?
Magic. That’s what.
The Benefits Of Niacinamide & Zinc Together
Similar to Niacinamide, Zinc skincare is a rock star when it comes to battling acne or blemishes and boosting overall skin health, tone and texture.
Zinc 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? Significant improvements across a broad range of skin care concerns and a variety of skin conditions.
Here are some of the benefits of this powerful beauty combo:
- Relief for sensitive skin
- Minimised dark spots
- Improved skin elasticity
- Increased skin protection
- Reduced skin irritation
In short, the benefits of zinc and Niacinamide working together are more of what we love to see - dewy, even, healthier-looking skin and improvements for all skin types, including acne prone skin and inflammatory skin conditions.
Like the much-touted benefits of hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and vitamin c, the zinc and Niacinamide combo is a beauty trend to watch.
