If you want your skin to be healthy and glowing, start using niacinamide - no matter what is your skin type!
Every few years, a new "it" ingredient begins to appear in a circle known as skin care - even if it's not new at all. This time it's niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that commercial cosmetics have been using as an ingredient for decades, but has recently appeared in all types of products as a recognizable and desirable skin care ingredient .
Niacinamide is a skin care ingredient that is worth your attention, and if you include niacinamide as a step in skin care, your skin will love you. Among a handful of other amazing skin care ingredients, such as retinol and vitamin C, niacinamide stands out for its versatility to solve almost all skin problems and for the fact that niacinamide is suitable for all skin types .
Niacinamide is an active ingredient in the form of vitamin B3 that is soluble in water and is not synthesized in our body, but we must take it with food or topically as niacinamide cream and niacinamide face serum. Excessive sebum production after using niacinamide will no longer be a problem, and niacinamide will at the same time fight to protect your skin from damage as best as possible. Also, niacinamide is very important because of its ability to prevent water loss from the skin, reduce skin dryness and unpleasant itching. In addition, niacinamide is good because it is a great help against acne and for reducing redness , and it is also believed that niacinamide is a good anti-inflammatory agent.
What exactly is niacinamide?Niacinamide is one of the two main forms of vitamin B3 (niacin) found in supplements (the other is nicotinic acid). Also known as nicotinamide , niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that in conjunction with natural substances provides your skin with help such as visible reduction of enlarged pores, firming skin, improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles and strengthen the skin surface .
Niacin (and therefore niacinamide / nicotinamide) may be effective because it is a precursor to the two most important biochemical cofactors: nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD + / NADH) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP +). Both molecules are key to the chemical reactions by which your cells, including skin cells, need to repair damage, spread, and function normally. Many of these essential reactions cannot occur at all without the coenzyme NAD +, which is caused by niacinamide. Thus, niacinamide is the main factor in your body for the formation of the NAD + molecule, which later affects the proliferation of cells in the skin, and allows the body to carry out processes such as absorption and neutralization of free radicals . In high enough doses, free radicals can damage healthy cells, making niacinamide an extremely important ingredient in skin care creams and serums.
In addition to producing NAD + coenzyme which is crucial for skin damage, there is some other evidence for a positive effect of niacinamide on the skin. Topical niacinamide thus contributes its effect to keep ceramide production as high as possible, which has significant value because ceramides are lipids that help maintain the skin’s protective barrier. Increased ceramide production through the use of niacinamide may contribute to the local effect on wrinkles, thin wrinkles and skin moisture barriers. All of this is why niacinamide is at the top of the list of skin care product ingredients.
Why should you use niacinamide?As you have already understood, the impression on the effect of niacinamide is great and we can be grateful for everything that niacinamide can do for the skin when applied as a skin care product, as a cream, toner, serum and highly concentrated treatment. Niacinamide is uniquely compatible with any product in your skin care routine , including those that contain ingredients such as retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHA and BHA acids, vitamin C and all kinds of antioxidants. Your skin care routine can also tolerate the use of multiple products that contain niacinamide, and it will still not react negatively because this ingenious vitamin B is well tolerated by all skin types. It is suitable even for those whose skin is sensitive or skin with damage and irregularities.
As an ingredient that interacts with cells, niacinamide "talks" to different skin cell types and encourages them to create new, fresh and healthy cells that ultimately look younger. It helps create ceramides and keratin which form a skin barrier. The stronger the barrier, the better your skin will look. If the barrier is damaged, collagen and elastin are broken down, and the skin cannot remain hydrated. Then it loses moisture and cannot heal or regenerate, and then the skin condition worsens. Protecting and restoring the skin's protective barrier is the key to healthy and beautiful skin, which is why using a product with niacinamide is a wise move.
Effective effect of niacinamide on acne, rosacea and other inflammatory skin conditions
The anti-inflammatory properties of niacinamide make it attractive for treating inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne. Niacinamide works to prevent excessive sebum production , which is a useful feature for those people whose skin is prone to acne. In addition, niacinamide, compared to other acne treatments, does not cause reactions, making it a particularly effective option for people who are struggling with acne and dry and sensitive skin . In addition to topical preparations, oral niacinamide supplements have been shown to be effective in reducing inflammation that can be caused by mild to moderate rosacea and acne. But the key words here are “mild to moderate rosacea,” and for a severe case of rosacea, stronger medications such as a retinoid or systemic steroids (in the case of acne) are recommended. Also, local niacinamide helps to improve the function carried by the stratum corneum, or the protective outer layer of the skin, which increases the anti-inflammatory effect of niacinamide.
Niacinamide in the fight against dry and dehydrated skin
If your skin is dry, topical application of niacinamide enhances the moisturizing ability of moisturizers, so that the skin surface better resists a problem such as water loss, which leads to a condition that makes your skin dry, flaky and dehydrated. Niacinamide works great with common moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin, vegetable oils, cholesterol, sodium PCA and sodium hyaluronate. Other beneficial benefits of niacinamide for dry skin are that the task of niacinamide is to restore the skin surface and protect against moisture loss and dehydration . Skin renewal and protection consistently help the skin to improve its natural production of ceramides that strengthen the skin. In case the ceramides are depleted over time and when the production of ceramides is involuntary, the skin becomes vulnerable and many problems can occur, permanent stains, dry skin, dandruff skin, sensitive skin.
Effect of niacinamide on enlarged and clogged pores
If you're wondering how to fight enlarged and clogged pores, niacinamide has a magical effect on reducing pores ! Niacinamide has a normalizing ability on the pores whose effect is seen in preventing the formation of debris, followed by clogged pores, rough and uneven skin. As clogging creates and worsens, the pores stretch to compensate, and what you will see on your skin as a result are enlarged pores. Enlarged pores can also cause sun damage, leading to the appearance of skin that many describe as “orange peel”. By helping things return to normal, the use of niacinamide helps the pores return to normal size, and niacinamide has a great effect on reducing pores.
