Niacinamide (Vitamin B3)

Just Skinn Highlighted Product: Niacinamide

I first came across the ingredient Niacinamide (aka Vitamin B3) while researching acne as it’s acne fighting properties are impressive due to its ability to regulate and stabilize oil production combined with how it promotes the production of ceramides and elastin which strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.

B3 Powder

This stable Vitamin (B3) offers a wide range of well documented benefits for the skin such as brightening, anti-aging, antioxidant and acne fighting properties. It is a water soluble vitamin that our bodies do not naturally create so we are reliant on food or topical sources. 

This powerful ingredient works with your skin’s natural chemistry to improve the overall texture, preventing UV damage, reducing inflammation, minimizing the appearance of pores and regulating oil production. It also reduces water loss from the skin by retaining moisture, increases the production of keratin, treats dark spots, minimizes fine line and wrinkles and protects against environmental damage from pollution, sunlight and toxins.
