Benefits of eating niacinamide for skin
Don’t just apply niacinamide, eat it too.
An ingredient that is in almost everyone's skincare routine is niacinamide. As a skincare active, niacinamide has gained a lot of popularity in recent times. While it has always been part of skincare formulations, only lately it has gotten the praise it deserves.
For those who are still unaware of this multitasking ingredient and its role in overall skin health, here is a quick guide.
Niacinamide is an active form of Vitamin B3 or niacin, an important nutrient for our body. Also known as nicotinamide, it is a water-soluble vitamin and plays a key role in improving our skin’s immunity and strength.
Niacinamide Benefits for Skin
If you are tired of bumpy skin texture, you must try niacinamide. It can help control sebum production in your skin by shrinking your pore size. No more shiny face and clogged pores!
And by reducing sebum production, niacinamide also helps you deal with the occurrence of those pesky breakouts that seem to appear out of nowhere.
If you have dry, sensitive skin or a damaged skin barrier, niacinamide can help you out as well. It is well-known for its ability to strengthen your skin barrier by stopping TEWL(transepidermal water loss). It will even get rid of redness and hyperpigmentation caused due to sun exposure or acne. Niacinamide is one hard-working fella!
Does Taking Oral Niacinamide Help Your Skin?
A 2015 study found that high-dose niacinamide supplementation resulted in a 23% decrease in the development of new non-melanoma skin cancers. So taking niacinamide orally has a photoprotective effect that helps your skin fight off harmful effects of ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun.
Another study found oral niacinamide helps your skin retain more moisture and stay hydrated by producing ceramides, an important component of our skin’s protective lipid barrier.
And more research is required for this part, but some studies have also shown the great potential of oral niacinamide supplements in managing inflammatory skin conditions like acne or rosacea.
We, at TGM, strongly believe in a holistic approach to a skincare routine. There is more to your routine than simply slathering on the latest products that hit the market shelves.
You need to work on the inside as well as outside to get good skin.
While niacinamide-containing serums and moisturizers work quite well, oral consumption of niacinamide can definitely help you tackle your skincare problems better.
So why not eat AND apply niacinamide? Studies consider it to be generally safe as being a water-soluble vitamin, excess amounts of it are flushed out of your body.
