It is very important that we do our parts to arm our skins with the essential nutrients via the proper skin care to avoid slowdown in our cells' ability to repair and renew as we grow older. This is why often people start noticing effects of aging and damage to their skin by the time they reach only their thirties or forties. Niacinamide is one of these essential nutrients which should not be overlooked.
What is Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, and the terms are sometimes found to be used interchangeably on skin care products for simplification purposes. Vitamin B3 is known for maintaining a healthy immune system, and when used in skin care products especially face serums, Vitamin B3 is key to enhancing and improving the protective layers of the skin. The upper layers of the epidermis are there to protect our skins from external aggressors and everyday toxic pollutants which can harm our bodies if entered via unprotected skin.
The key benefits of Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)
Niacinamide is an effective skin-restoring ingredient offering various whitening, healing and anti-aging benefits. Niacinamide helps improve the epidermal barrier performance, allowing better moisture retention and reduced hydration loss, leading to optimal keratin and ceramide production. Over time this leads to healthier skin and reduces effects of anti-aging. Vitamin B3 is also capable in reducing topical inflammation, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, which ultimately leads to visibly brighter and glowing healthy skin.
In the Mellow Naturals Vit C Natural Glow Face Serum, a 90% natural formula brightening face serum, Niacinamide is used in conjunction with other Vitamin C and Vit C-derivatives, including MAP (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate), which together give the ultimate boost in the skin's ability to protect against external aggressors, while providing a clear whitening and brightening solution through healthier skin.
