Also known as nicotinamide and vitamin B3, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly improve enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened surface.
Niacinamide: How it Can Help and How to Use it
The skincare business is always advancing and discovering new chemicals and products that can help you have a more beautiful, smooth, and soft complexion. Niacinamide has been one of the newer darlings, cited as an important turning point for total skin health. What exactly is it and how are you supposed to use it? Read further to find out!
$6.99 VS $5.90, Affordable Niacinamide Products Competition!!!
Today, let's compare two affordable niacinamide products. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%and THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum I have combo skin with enlarged pores. Niacinamide's main function is to brighten your skin, reduce dark spots and acne scars, control oil and maintain hydration, and improve enlarged pores. Price: both serums are about 30ml, prices are also similar-The Ordianry $5.90 VS. The Inkey List $6.99 Texture: Very similar. Both serums look like liquid glue. But they are pretty light, easy to spread out. It feels a little bit sticky but can be absorbed easily. The Ordinary's serum is more sticky than Inkey's. Ingredient: The Ordinary includes 1% Zinc. And it is oil-free. Zinc is good for pimples and oil control. InkeyList has 1% Hyaluronic acid. It also has Squalane. This formula ensures hydration for people with dry skin. Effects: After using both serums, my skin looks brighter and more even. I can also see my enlarged pores getting better if I look closely into my skin. However, I do feel differently when I am using these two products-my skin feels more comfortable and hydrated when using Inkey. Overall, both niacinamide serums are pretty good, especially at this price level. Inkey is good for combo-dry skin, and The Ordinary works better for oily skin. But both serums have a high concentration of niacinamide. ⚠⚠⚠If you have sensitive skin, be cautious! Build up your tolerance before you use them! What’s your favorite niacinamide product? I’d love to hear 😊😊

Glass skin skincare products
PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum This serum does not have immediate results, but over the past few weeks of using it I’ve noticed great results. My skin is smoother and more moisturized. This serum has some great ingredients including niacinamide, hyaluronic acid and peptides! It absorbs completely and quickly which makes it a great AM and PM option! It hasn’t disrupted my foundation or other makeup products that I apply on top! It’s very thin and watery and makes the skin feel and looks moisturized and glass like! I would definitely recommend this! The only reason I give it 4 stars is the price but you are getting 40 ML which is 33% larger than standard serums. I’m trying to switch to more drugstore skincare and for $39 this is definitely not drugstore but I would buy it again if I don’t find anything better in the near future! #cheriepartner

Latest skincare trend! Niacinamide!
What’s the latest trend in skincare you ask.... It’s Niacinamide! And so I was very excited to try The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% as I have pigmentation and discolouration on my face due to acne scars. I have been using The Ordinary’s 10% Niacinamide with 1% zinc as a part of my morning routine and I have been loving it so far! I can visibly see the difference in the reduction of pigmentation on my cheeks. I cannot confidently say that it reduced my pores though. Which is something they claim it does! Maybe it takes more time...I will continue to use this one daily and see how it goes! Have you tried on this particular lotion yet? Or are there any other niacinamide lotions I should try?

The Ordinary products you SHOULD MIX them to boost more Vitamin C.
I am going to give you a general idea of what you can mix, and I am also going to share my favorite pairings that I like to use in my skincare routines. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA I want to share with you today that I see results with, and that worked together. I love to incorporate The Ordinary hyaluronic acids 2% + b5. It is a hydration product, so this will give you a lot of hydration and moisture. So if you have dry skin, this is a serum that you want to incorporate into your skincare routine. It can be used in morning and night, and this can be paired with anything. You can pair this with retinol, and you also can pair this with an acid. I like to add this for extra hydration, especially when I am using those higher strength products. Still, I especially like to use this in the morning in combination with my Vitamin C. The vitamin C that I want to use from The Ordinary is The Ordinary ascorbic acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2%. So I do like to use these two products in the same routine in the morning. And if there is a day that I don’t feel like using The Ordinary Vitamin C, and I am using a different brand. I will pair my hyaluronic acids with a different type of vitamin c, which is completely fine. So, I love this pairing, and I love how this makes my skin feel. After using this pairing, I see a lot of brightness in my skin. And I love the way that the Hyaluronic Acids+b5 gives my skin that beautiful glow, so when I am wearing makeup on top, I feel like this serum shines through and gives my skin an elegant dewy, youthful look. And I think that is beautiful in skincare is to have a subtle sheen to your skin. I think it looks healthy. So if you are looking for a good pairing and you want to boost your Vitamin.

B3 /Niacinamide in Olay Body Wash
Newly formulated Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash adds B3. The combination of both B3 and Shea butter hydrates and locks in moisture in your skin. The added B3 hydrates to plump surface skin cells for healthy looking skin. Who doesn't want soft skin? What I like about this body wash it is rich and creamy. Creates a good amount of foam. The fragrance is pleasant for me , might be too strong for those who have used the original product. Fragrance is neutral can be used by both women and men. There is no smell of Shea butter if you know how the real Shea butter smells. You won't be smelling like Shea butter . You don't need to use alot of body lotion or creams after using as it keeps moisture in your skin. Leaves no residue on your skin. Recommended for all skin types especially dry skin. Available in various size and very economical 😊 It's moisture locking formula leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
