All The Reasons Why Niacinamide Is Your Best Friend


Hands down, the most underrated ingredient in the skincare world. Everyone goes on and on about vitamin C and A, but poor vitamin B tends to get forgotten amongst all the show-off ingredients.

But Vitamin B (B3 and B5) aren't show-offs. They're quiet achievers. I remember trying a vitamin B serum for the first time many moons ago, and it was like discovering wine for the first time. But instead of waking up with mascara smudged all over my face, I woke up with the glowiest skin I'd ever had. And I've never turned back.

On dull, dehydrated, reactive, ageing, redness-prone skin, niaciamide (B3) and panthenol (B5) are absolute game-changers, and I think they deserve much more credit than they get.

Let's Focus On Niacinamide (B3):

If you’re into skincare, you might know vitamin B3 better as niacinamide - it’s a water-soluble vitamin that can work with literally every other ingredient in your skincare routine. It’s the ingredient I recommend most to anyone starting on a new skincare routine because it’s not only versatile, but highly effective.

This powerhouse ingredient helps to brighten the complexion, improve uneven skin tone, balance oil production and help to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. 

But my favourite thing about niacinamide is how it supports the skin’s delicate barrier, and can help to protect the skin from dehydration and inflammation, which is why it’s an excellent ingredient for acne-prone and sensitive skin types. I’ve got rosacea, and it’s an ingredient I rely on to calm my skin and add a boost of radiance to my complexion.

Luckily, niacinamide is really well tolerated by nearly all skin types - even sensitive skin can use this ingredient with no irritation, and it pairs really well with hydrating and calming ingredients like B5 and hyaluronic acid.
