- Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3, Niacinamide is a superstar ingredient that repairs skin, reduces the occurrence of acne, and fades blemishes. This formula uses Niacinamide in a high concentration of 10%.
- EUK-134: One of the most potent antioxidants in the industry, EUK-134 reduces oxidative stress, protects skin from UVB damage, and makes skin look even, brighter and healthy.
- Zinc: It regulates sebum production and has anti-bacterial properties as well, making it highly suitable for oily / acne-prone skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid: The key benefit of hyaluronic acid is hydration and the unbelievable ability to retain moisture. To understand how important moisture is for the skin, you have to first know that dehydrated skin – when the top layer of skin doesn’t have enough water – appears dry, rough, and flaky.
Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum aka Niacinamide 10% Topical Serum is made by reputable Minimalist. Nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, is a scientifically proven natural compound that can relieve skin inflammation such as rosacea, acne, and reduce hyperpigmentation spots. Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum is a versatile product, one that comes from the vitamin B family. The vitamin itself is water-soluble, making it useful for nicotinamide water-based serum.
Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum is a topical that is typically used on the face. Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum can prove beneficial to relieve many skin conditions. As people age, their skin tends to lose elasticity as well as become dryer. These conditions lead to the formation of wrinkles. And it cannot be reversed by simply drinking more water. It takes being proactive with the right product for the job. Nicotinamide Serum can replenish the moisture that is lost with age, plumping out the fine wrinkles. With re-hydration, elasticity returns as well. The overall effect is one of restoring the face to a more youthful, fresh, and shiny appearance.
Wrinkles are not the only area that Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum affects. Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum reduces red marks, acne, and acne scars as well. Use over time will eventually see acne scars fade out and be that much less obvious. Breakouts of acne respond well and will disappear in a short amount of time. It can serve to minimize the need for extensive skin acne cleansing regimes; instead of using four or five items to kill acne, just one jar of 10 percent nicotinamide (niacinamide) Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum after a wash with soap can do the job. Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum has been shown in published scientific studies to reduce the amount of sebum present on the skin and hence treat the root cause of acne.
Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum has been compared to Clindamycin phosphate, the leading topical acne medicated cream gel. Niacinamide is considered a more effective and better-acting substance, Minimalist® (Vitamin B3) Niacinamide 10% Face Serum was the preferred choice because although the two were equally almost effective, the fact that the use of topical Clindamycin phosphate is also associated with the development of resistant microorganisms makes nicotinamide more preferred.
For those who suffer from areas of hyperpigmentation, nicotinamide gel can help naturally with reducing the intensity. It will lighten the skin and minimize the appearance of a dark spot. Age spots and rosacea are also reported to respond to treatment with the product. Side-effects when using nicotinamide gel on the skin are few. The risk of toxicity does exist when taking it orally, but the oral use does not correlate with topical. In general, it is a safe and natural treatment that is effective for many skin problems. Studies have shown that the product does do everything it claims to do as long as the user stays dedicated to its use.
Benefits of usage of Nicotinamide/Niacinamide 10% Face Serum?
Boosting the immunity of your skin. There are cells in your skin known as Langerhans cells. They are responsible for the protection and repair mechanisms of your skin. They are shy little guys, and when you expose your skin to the sun, especially when you burn your skin, they temporarily retreat leaving the skin without its natural immunity against invading microbes or the safeguards against the activity of precancerous lesions.
Improves epidermal barrier performance. Everything about your skin is better when the epidermal lipid barrier is functioning at its peak. Your lipid barrier helps retain moisture, keeps it hydrated for longer, and will protect your skin from the harshness of the environment, regardless of the time of year. Niacinamide increases the production of ceramides (an essential component of your lipid barrier), keeping the skin strong and preventing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL).
Improves redness and blotchiness on the skin. With an improved epidermal lipid barrier, the skin’s natural ability to protect itself from external aggressors becomes vastly improved. Over time and with a daily application of a Niacinamide formulation, improvements in skin structure will reduce redness, blotchiness, and sensitivity brought about by exposure to the environment due to a poorly functioning barrier.
Regulated oil flow. When your skin retains its natural moisture with a well-functioning lipid barrier, the natural oil flow of the skin becomes controlled. So, if you have oily skin, rather than trying to wash it scrupulously away and exacerbate the problem, consider topically applied Niacinamide as an essential factor in getting any excessive oil flow under control.
Protects skin from infrared light. Niacinamide protects the skin from the infrared heat of the sun. Along with the damaging effects of UV exposure, infrared activates free radicals and stimulates an overproduction of pigmented cells, and if your pigmentation is hormonal, heat is a big problem. Niacinamide protects the skin from the heat.
Hyper-pigmentation. The transfer of pigment (melanosomes) from your melanocytes to the surrounding skin of your epidermis is known as a tan. However, over time, this activity becomes dysfunctional, and many of us end up with uneven, blotchy pigmentation rather than a golden tan. If your skin has become susceptible to hyperpigmentation, then Niacinamide will assist in the reduction of uneven pigmentation by slowing down the transfer of melanin to your skin’s epidermis. Including this smart ingredient in any hyper-pigmentation treatment plan is a must-do!
Minimize lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide boosts collagen production. Along with the improvement of the skin’s lipid barrier comes an increase in cell differentiation which contributes to better synthesis and formation of collagen and elastin. Music to my ears!
Dull and sallow skin. While many antioxidants prevent damage caused by oxidative stress and AGEs, Niacinamide goes one step further and reverses the visible signs brought about by the onslaught. As time goes by and with the constant exposure to free radicals and glycation, the skin can appear dull and sallow with a sad loss of radiance. You don’t want that! Niacinamide as an antioxidant reduces the negative impact of oxidative stress and improves the skin’s ability to fight back. You definitely want that!
