What is niacinamide?

Niacinamide (also known as vitamin B3, niacin, or nicotinamide), is definitely the ingredient all skin types should embrace year-round. Better known as niacinamide, vitamin B3 is one of the most potent ingredients in skincare offering anti-inflammatory, repairing, and brightening properties. It is a water-soluble vitamin which like all vitamins from B group is particularly famous for their soothing and healing properties. No surprise some of the Korean niacinamide skincare products are so effective.

What does niacinamide do for skin?

Niacinamide is one of the multi-tasking ingredients as it can tackle a number of skin concerns. Decades of research have proven that this amazing skin ingredient plays significant role in protecting skin from environmental stressors. In addition, it significantly improves skin discoloration and uneven skin tone. As it has antioxidant properties, it not only improves hydration, reduces signs of ageing and improves dull skin but also shrinks enlarged pores and clears the skin from blackheads.

Which niacinamide skincare products are good for you?

Niacinamide can be used in a number of different Korean niacinamide skincare products like toners, serums, sheet masks, moisturisers and eye creams.

If you are looking for a quick boost of glow, take a 15-minute break and use Aqulabo Oh! Very Bright Mask. If you are fed up seeing dark circles in the mirror, check and be amazed by COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream

Can I use niacinamide for acne skin?

Yes! If you have acne-prone skin and have tendency to blemishes, you will be glad to hear a concentration of only 2% helps to reduce blemishes.

Check our niacinamide toner, COSRX Refresh ABC Daily Toner (AHA BHA Vitamin C). It will reveal a smoother, more refined skin texture.

Want something stronger than the niacinamide toner? COSRX AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum containing 4% of niacinamide will tackle enlarged pores, smooth rough skin texture and minimise bumps.

What is the best niacinamide serum?

For best results, use leave-on niacinamide products and serum is one of the best options. You can use it on its own or mixed into your favourite face cream.

Some of our favourite skin serums are:

  • Tiam Vita B3 Source. This incredible Korean face serum contains 10% of Niacinamide and 2% Arbutin to visibly improve the skin’s overall health and skin tone plus retain skin-smoothing moisture and resist loss of firmness. Tiam's niacinamide serum will bring amazing results to every skin.
  • Beauty of Joseon Glow Serum is a fantastic combination of 60% of propolis extract and 2% of Niacinamide. Two hero skin ingredients help calm and heal irritated skin bringing it natural healthy glow at the same time.

How do you use niacinamide?

There’s no reason for you to wait to add niacinamide to your skincare routine. It can be mixed with other active ingredients such as retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHA, BHA, vitamin C, and all types of antioxidants.

According to research and tests, niacinamide is even suitable for sensitive or rosacea-prone skin.

Just remember to always do a patch test of every new product and introduce it gradually. Oh, and to make sure you get the most of niacinamide, protect skin daily with a broad-spectrum sun creams.

Can I use niacinamide with vitamin C?

Yes, niacinamide and vitamin C can be used together.
