The benefits of Niacinamide for Your Skin

Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B-3, also known as nicotinamide that is one of the water-soluble vitamins. It is an essential nutrient that is important for your general skin health as it helps in improving different skin conditions such as uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, weakened skin surface and dullness.

Niacinamide also protects your skin from external environmental factors as it improves the barrier function of your skin. Moreover, it also helps in the process of skin repair. People who have a deficiency of this vitamin can develop certain types of skin, brain and kidney disorders.

Niacinamide and Niacin are two different types of Vitamin B-3. However, when an excessive amount of niacin is present in your body, your body can make niacinamide from niacin.

Niacinamide provides a long list of protective & corrective skin functions:

  • Niacinamide boosts the immunity of your skin by strengthening Langerhans cells. Langerhans cells are involved in the repair and protection mechanisms of your skin.
  • It protects your skin from free radicals and oxidative stress.
  • It lightens skin.
  • It treats acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
  • It improves epidermal skin barrier function. This lipid barrier protects your skin from harsh external environment and keeps your skin hydrated. Niacinamide strengthens the lipid barrier by producing “ceramides”.
  • It helps with the healing of burns & scratches.
  • It improves blotchiness, redness, sensitive skin, and skin’s structure by improving epidermal lipid barrier functioning. 
  • It enhances the development of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF).
  • It regulates facial oil production. If you have oily skin, niacinamide will bring excessive oil flow in your skin under control.
  • It protects your skin from harmful UV-radiation and from heat.
  • It is an excellent treatment for hyper-pigmentation, melasma and age spots. Niacinamide reduces uneven pigmentation in your skin by controlling the transfer of melanin to your skin’s epidermis.
  • It helps in minimizing wrinkles and lines by boosting collagen production in the dermis.
  • It reduces dullness and improves the radiance of your skin.
  • It reduces dryness and helps in treating dry skin problems.
  • It helps in shrinking your skin’s pores and smoothing of your skin’s texture.

Niacinamide is a photoprotective, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, sebostatic and lightening agent.
