One word you might never have heard of but has been affecting your beauty and skin since ages are, Niacinamide.

Not many people are aware of this essential nutrient mostly found in their skincare products. As a consumer, it is necessary for us to deeply study or gather information on what goes on our skin and inside our body through the products we use.

Keeping yourself aware helps understand better, the needs of our body and whether the skin demands some ingredients specifically, in bulk or otherwise.

Let’s understand what exactly is Niacinamide and how crucial it is for our skincare?

What is Niacinamide?

As complex the term sounds, Niacinamide is a very simple compound found in many ingredients that curate our everyday beauty products.

It is one form of Vitamin-B3 which is an essential ingredient in the making of our beauty care. This has much to do with the body health than the skincare in general as it fights against kidney, liver, and organ failure that might happen due to the toxins that we induce through our skincare products.

When we introduce Niacinamide in our beauty routine, it helps in providing firmness and smoothness to the skin as it unclogs all the facial pores. The bottom line, it is a powerhouse of antioxidants that our body needs every day to fight all the signs of ageing and prevent all early signs such as fine lines, spots, and wrinkles, and under-eye bags.

What are the benefits of Niacinamide?

1. It helps the ingredients work better on our skin and revitalize the skin while making it smoother.
2. Helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Boosts collagen production within the skin.
3. Reproduces new skin cells and tissues at a faster rate.
4. Evens out the skin tone.
5. Calms down the irritated skin.
6. Improves the immune system.
7. Maintains the balance of oil production in the body and on the skin.
