Niacinamide: The Big Word in Skincare Right Now

Skincare | Vaniday

We’ve seen it all over social media, but what exactly is niacinamide? We break down skincare’s latest ‘it’ ingredient for you.

What is niacinamide?

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, a water-soluble vitamin that can be found in many skincare products.

What does it do?

Niacinamide supports your skin barrier, increasing its resiliency. From protecting the skin, increasing cellular renewal, to shrinking pores and controlling sebum production, it seems that this potent vitamin really does it all. Those struggling with discolouration and uneven skin tone will also benefit from it.

How often can I use it?

Niacinamide is gentle enough to use both morning and night, but refer to your specific product’s guidelines. It’s no one-hit wonder; it should be used consistently for you to notice a difference.

Who can use it?

Niacinamide is suitable for all skin types and brings a ton of benefits that’ll be great for anyone and everyone.

Are there any dangers to using niacinamide?

Some people face some irritation, but it should go away with repeated use. When in doubt, always consult with your dermatologist before proceeding.

What products should I use?

Niacinamide is low risk and can be applied topically through skincare products. Look for products with dosages between 2%–10%.
