#1: Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles
A few of the most noticeable signs of ageing are fine lines, wrinkles, and skin that’s dehydrated and slightly yellow-ish. The good news? Niacinamide can help with all of that! Studies have shown that prolonged use (basically 12 weeks or longer of continuous use) leads to reduced fine lines and wrinkles — with more than a 20 per cent improvement!
According to Healthline, Niacinamide can help your skin grow a ceramide (lipid) barrier, which can, in turn, helps retain moisture. This is beneficial for all skin types, especially if you have eczema or mature skin. Your skin’s natural barrier can be weakened by sun exposure, harsh cleansers and some medications. Niamincide helps to increase the synthesis of fats and lipids, such as ceramides, and the production of proteins like keratin for a stronger epidermis.
