I'm sure it's not the first time you've read the name of this ingredient, but do you know what makes it so popular? If your answer is no, don't worry! I'll tell you EVERYTHING you need to know about it and why it's one of our favorites. 

What is niacinamide?

Niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3) is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the skin's natural substances to help minimize and visibly tighten enlarged pores, improve skin tone, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness, and strengthen a weakened surface.

On top of all that, it also helps reduce environmental damage and repair the skin's natural barrier, giving it plenty of glow.

In short, niacinamide is one of the most multifaceted ingredients you can apply in your routine.

Why should I use it?

After reading all the benefits, I think it's super important to mention that niacinamide is compatible with many of the products and ingredients in your skincare routine, including those containing retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHA, BHA, vitamin C and all kinds of antioxidants, making it a plus in your routine.

Other great benefits are that it helps renew and restore the skin's surface against moisture loss and dehydration by improving ceramide production. When ceramides are depleted over time, skin is left vulnerable to different types of problems, such as dry patches or conditions that make it more sensitive, the perfect field of action for niacinamide.

Our star ingredient is compatible with any skin type, but if you have dry skin or suffer from skin conditions such as rosacea, I'm 100% sure you'll love it.

In fact, its anti-inflammatory properties make it an attractive treatment for skin conditions marked by inflammation such as acne.

Want to include it in your routine? Here are some of our favorite products:
