Let’s discuss several other benefits of applying Niacinamide on skin:

Niacinamide helps to keep the skin firm, plump and healthy. It retains the moisture & hydration in the epidermis that plumps the fine lines and gives smoother texture to the skin.
This will also help in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps in slowing the signs of early ageing that happens due to environmental damage by collagen production.
2. Lipid barrier of skin
Niacinamide helps skin to develop a lipid barrier that helps retain and hold skin’s natural moisture and hydration.
This is beneficial to protect all types of skin from dryness, dullness & flakiness, especially if you have eczema or mature skin.
3. Neutralizes sensitive skin conditions
Niacinamide is extremely helpful in minimizing redness and blotchiness in sensitive skin.
It helps in reducing inflammation, irritation & eases redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions.
4. Good for Acne prone skin
Application of Niacinamide helps in minimizing the appearance of open pores. It keeps skin smooth and moisturized.
Niacinamide also helps in regulating the production of excessive sebum from sebaceous glands & give mattifying glow to the skin.
5. Protects against sun damage
Niacinamide rejuvenates skin cells and also protects them from damage caused by harmful Infra-Red and UV rays from the sun.
It helps in combating the damage caused by sun & pollutants on skin.
6. Brightens & Lightens skin complexion
Hyperpigmentation, sun tan and dark spots are major reasons for worry in Asian skin types. It is found that 5–10% niacinamide concentrations can be helpful in lightening dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
Regular application for four weeks, but not beyond two months may benefit. It regulates transportation of melanin in skin & gives ultra-refined & luminous complexion.
7. Protects against oxidative stress
Niacinamide helps in the regeneration of skin cells and protects them from oxidation and damage from environmental stresses like blue light, sunlight, pollution, and other toxins.
It helps skin to rejuvenate over time and develop healthy & dewy glow on the skin.
Niacinamide results in a positive impact on your overall skin conditions. The ingredient can help in controlling various skin issues and conditions.
It takes several weeks to see visible results & improvements, so it’s important to be patient and regular in your skincare routine.
As we all know its all about regime building and not a one-day miracle.
