4 Reasons to Add Niacinamide Serum to Your Eczema Skincare Routine
What is Niacinamide Serum?
Niacinamide, also known as nicotinamide, is a form of vitamin B3, which aids in locking in the skin's moisture while reducing irritation and protecting against wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines.
Vitamin B-3 is an essential nutrient and a good additive to aid in skin health. Although more research is needed, niacinamide serum applied to the skin may help treat certain skin conditions, including eczema.
Reason 1: Skin Defense
As a lipid barrier, niacinamide can help your skin grow a ceramide (lipid) barrier, which helps retain moisture. Perfect for dry and eczema prone skin.
Reason 2: Sun Shield
Niacinamide can concurrently rebuild healthy skin cells while also protecting them from damage caused by ultraviolet rays. Apply before applying sunblock for a one-two punch in protecting against sun damage.
Reason 3: Skin Health
Niacinamide helps build keratin, one of the proteins that keeps your skin firm and healthy. It acts as a skin immunity booster.
Reason 4: Stress reliever
Niacinamide protects the skin against oxidative stress. Niacinamide helps build cells in the skin while also protecting them from environmental stresses, such as sunlight, blue light, pollution, and toxins.
