As the year continues to wind down, what has been the best ingredient in new skin care regimes? It is called niacinamide. Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinic acid, niacinamide is a very effective skin-restoring ingredient that offers multiple benefits for aging skin. Among these benefits are the ability to visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface. Niacinamide reduces damage caused by environmental attack, and the best news is that it is stable in the presence of heat and light. This means that it can be applied both day and night. Niacinamide breaks down pigment in skin and is indicated to reduce hyperpigmentation. Because it does not irritate the skin, it is also effective to reduce inflammation such as rosacea and acne. Niacinamide stimulates cells to produce more collagen which helps with skin firmness and plumping of fine lines. This is truly one of the “best of the best” ingredients available in skin care products in 2016.
