Centre Stage: Niacinamide

Today’s ingredient we are exploring in, ‘Centre Stage’ is Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3. Taken by mouth, vitamin B3 it is said to alleviate acne vulgaris, help stop memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease, lessen the disconcerting symptoms of schizophrenia and even help ADHD.

Currently, there is not enough substantial evidence to determine its full effectiveness in the treatment of the above ailments. But there is another area it is more commonly used for which we will discuss today.

Skincare Benefits

Niacinamide is more commonly known for its use in skincare products. Proven effective in the treatment of eczema, it is also beneficial in maintaining overall skin tone, reduction of pore size, and reduction of wrinkles and fine lines.

The reasons why I choose to incorporate niacinamide in my skincare routine are; reducing my redness (rosacea), soothing my blemishes and dermatitis (seb derm) and creating an overall even skin tone.

Here are a few select products containing Niacinamide (Vitamin B3):

  1. Great post, Diandra! I love that you focus on one specific ingredient. I really enjoy the TO Niacinimide! It sits really well under makeup and other skincare products. I wouldn’t say I have a huge problem with blemishes, but it definitely evens my skin as a whole.

    1. I’m glad you like this little series πŸ˜€ Thank you for your feedback on TO Niacinamide, I think I’ll be purchasing this very soon. That’s so good to hear, I really love a product that helps even skin tone out as I need some help in that department πŸ™‚


  2. I love TO’s Niacinamide, highly recommend it! I’ve gone through two bottles already and would easily go for a third but I want to explore other products at the moment.

    I didn’t know it could be taken via capsules, I never really thought about taking it in that way!

    Great post, am keen to see more posts like these πŸ™‚
