Niacinamide: What is it & How Does it Benefit the Skin?

Step aside vitamin C and make room for niacinamide, your skin’s best friend. Over the past few years, niacinamide has become increasingly popular, and for good reason. Learn more about this powerhouse ingredient and see what the buzz is all about in the beauty community! 


What is Niacinamide? 

Also known as Vitamin B3, or nicotinamide, niacinamide is often found in foods such as whole grains and certain greens, and its synthetic version is used in many skincare items. This versatile ingredient effectively treats multiple skin concerns and is suitable for all skin types. Overall, niacinamide strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier, improves skin tone and texture, calms inflammation, and promotes healthy skin cell growth. 

How Does Niacinamide Benefit the Skin? 

Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that not only gets along with every skin type, but also works well with other ingredients, making it very easy to incorporate into a variety of skincare products. 

Without further ado, here are the top benefits of Niacinamide: 

Treats Hyperpigmentation 

Dull or uneven skin tone? Niacinamide can help. It visibly improves dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring and brightens skin for a healthy glow. 

Strengthens Skin Barrier 

Niacinamide increases ceramide and elastin levels and restores moisture loss to improve the function of the skin’s barrier. This results in hydrated, healthy skin that can better fight off irritants. 

Tackles Signs of Aging 

Hello, youthful skin. Niacinamide stimulates the production of collagen and proteins to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles and keeps skin looking smooth and supple. 

Protects Skin 

As a powerful antioxidant, niacinamide rebuilds skin cells and protects skin from environmental aggressors, such as sunlight, pollution, and harmful toxins. 

Reduces Inflammation

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, niacinamide helps to decrease inflammation and redness, and is ideal for even the most sensitive skin. 

Regulates Oil Production

Oil, be gone. Niacinamide minimizes the appearance of large pores and reduces acne and blemishes, which often makes it a holy-grail ingredient in facial serums or moisturizers. 

There is nothing niacinamide can’t do! That’s why it is one of the most in-demand skincare ingredients right now. 

Add Niacinamide to Your Self-Care Routine 

Enjoy the endless benefits of niacinamide in a nourishing, spa-like hand treatment with our floral-scented Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves or in a detoxifying, relaxing spa pedicure with our Pedi in a Box O2 Fizz

Because your hands are constantly exposed to the elements, they are one of the first body parts to show signs of aging. As you age, collagen production slows down and skin loses volume and becomes less elastic. Hands are more likely to develop wrinkles and age spots due to environmental aggressors. 

Our Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves moisturize, brighten, and rejuvenate dry skin from your hands up to your elbows, leaving skin visibly softer, smoother, and more youthful in 15 minutes or less. Rough hands and dry, dark elbows will be problems of the past. Vegan collagen hydrates and increases skin elasticity to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Niacinamide improves uneven skin tone and brightens skin for a youthful effect. Shea butter soothes and conditions skin to eliminate tightness and restore flexibility. These long spa gloves are like a sheet mask for your hands, arms, and elbows. Plus, as an added bonus, they have removable fingertips for convenient manicures at home or in the salon. 

How to Use Our Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves:

  1. Clean and dry hands before use. 

  2. Carefully remove gloves from the package. 

  3. Place gloves on a flat surface and rub gently to spread the lotion evenly inside to the fingertips and all the way up to the elbows. 

  4. Put gloves on and affix them with attached stickers. Leave on for 10-15 mins. 

  5. Tear off the fingertips along the pre-cut lines for manicure services. 

  6. Remove gloves and gently massage the remaining product into skin until fully absorbed. No need to rinse.
