Niacinamide is the active form of vitamin B3. Hydrosoluble, it increases the synthesis of natural ceramides in the skin, promoting high level of hydration.
As time passes, ceramides are prone to reduce in quantity, leaving our skin vulnerable to many kinds of problems, from patches and scaling of the skin to extra sensibility. With the stimuli of niacinamide, the skin keeps producing ceramides, thus keeping itself healthy and shiny.
BENEFITS OF NIACINAMIDE
Its benefits include minimizing dilated pores, closing flaccid pores, improvement of the irregular tone of the skin, and softening of the thin lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide acts controlling the production of oil by the sebaceous glands, which decreases the chances of zits and pimples appearing. Moreover, studies conducted by the American Society of Clinical Oncology have also pointed out that vitamin 3 is associated to a decrease in the risk of skin cancer.
NIACINAMIDE ON THE SKIN
- Its application grants a stabilizing effect to the cutaneous barrier of the skin (the first protection barrier), which gives a potent clearing effect that acts reducing melasmas and rosacea.
- Its anti-rash and sebaceous regulating action, aids in the acne and dermatitis treatment, and minimizes hyperpigmentation cause by skin lesions.
- Ideal for all types of skin, the products composed by niacinamide are indicated to those who seek to level the tone of the skin, soften the appearance of the pores, reduce patches, prevent fine expression lines, aging signs, and increase of elasticity.
- It also possesses anti-urban pollution activity, and protection against blue light and UV ray.
NIACINAMIDE AGAINST UV RAYS DAMAGED SKIN BY UV RAYS? NIACINAMIDE HELPS TOO!
Exposure to sunlight helps in the process of premature aging of our skin. UV radiation provokes excessive or irregular pigmentation, as well as the development of skin cancer. Niacinamide has shown to be effective against the damage cause by UV rays: it protects and restores the skin that was damaged by UV rays and keeps the shine and elasticity of the skin.
IS IT TRUE THAT NIACINAMIDE PROTECTS AGAINST BLUE LIGHT?
The blue light, derived of solar irradiation, computers, or smartphones, generates similar effects to those of UV light, and penetrate even further into the skin: one of the main causes of skin damage induced by blue light is the formation of reactive oxygen species (ERO). The protection of the skin against blue light consists in UV filters, which bring additional absorbance in the blue light band (390-500nm), and bio actives that help against skin damage induced by blue light.
Niacinamide improves the restoration of damage caused to DNA in human keratinocytes and skin. It also has the potential to prevent immunosuppression induced by UV radiation. It has been proven that niacinamide significantly increases the repair of Cyclobutane Pyrimdine photolesions on the human skin.
By selectively stimulating the synthesis od collagen, niacinamide aids to keep the firmness and softness of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Particulate matter (PM), also know as particle pollution, is a mix of extremely small particles and droplets of liquid. The exposure to fine particles, with 2,5 micrometres in diameter or smaller, have direct effects on the keratinocytes and melanocytes of the skin, which could lead to the expression of relevant genes to aging and skin pigmentation, especially skin inflammation.
Niacinamide has been proven effective in the protection against particle pollution.
