Niacinamide belongs to the family of B vitamins and has been around for a long time.
It works like this:
First it helps to remove unwanted oil and dirt from the skin’s surface which makes pores appear smaller.
Then it increases natural collagen production that produces healthy skin cells.
Niacinamide is a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), which boosts energy release from mitochondria and maintains cell membranes against aging, environmental stressors, and inflammation.
Cell turnover rates slow down in response to a niacinamide deficiency, hence it's crucial for skin regeneration. Niacinamide must be made available on the skin surface where it can regenerate skin cells.
Finally, Niacinamide also functions as a water-binding agent that will improve your complexion by delivering nutrients deep into the skin better than without its help!
