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

Have you heard about niacinamide? Over the past few years, niacinamide has become an increasingly popular ingredient in skincare products, due to its hydrating properties and ability to protect the skin. It’s easier than you think to add niacinamide to your self-care routine, and we’ll share 6 reasons why niacinamide will benefit your skin.


Niacinamide is an active form of Vitamin B3. It provides a vast amount of benefits for skin, including strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier, improving skin tone and texture, calming inflammation, and promoting healthy skin cell growth. Niacinamide is found in foods such as some whole grains, leafy greens, and meats, and its synthetic and topical version is used in many skincare items. Niacinamide effectively treats multiple skin concerns and is suitable for all skin types. 


Since niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that combines well with other ingredients, it’s easy to incorporate into a variety of skincare products. Keep in mind, it may take a few weeks to see results, but with frequent use, products with niacinamide support your skin’s overall health. Here are 6 reasons why niacinamide is one of the most in-demand skincare ingredients right now.

1. Treats Hyperpigmentation

Do you have dull or uneven skin tone? Niacinamide visibly improves dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. It also brightens skin for that healthy glow we’re all looking to find.

2. 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 is more equipped to fight off irritants.

3. Tackles Signs of Aging

Hello, youthful skin! Niacinamide stimulates the production of collagen and proteins to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This helps to keep skin looking smooth and supple. Niacinamide can also prevent yellowing of skin and support skin elasticity.

4. Protects Skin

As a powerful antioxidant, niacinamide rebuilds skin cells and protects skin from environmental aggressors, such as sunlight, pollution, and harmful toxins. It also stimulates the production of ceramide, a lipid that helps protect the skin barrier.

5. Reduced Inflammation

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, niacinamide helps to decrease inflammation and redness, even for the most sensitive skin. It can also lessen the impact of eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions.

6. Regulates Oil Production

You may be wondering “does niacinamide help with acne?” It sure does. Niacinamide helps to minimize the appearance of large pores, acne, and blemishes, which often makes niacinamide a holy grail ingredient in facial serums, toners, and moisturizers. 


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. Both of these niacinamide products are great to add to your self-care routine.

Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves

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 elasticity. Your hands are more likely to develop wrinkles and age spots due to environmental aggressors, which antioxidants like niacinamide can assist with. 

Our Youth Therapy Elbow-High Gloves moisturize, brighten, and rejuvenate dry skin from your hands to your elbows, leaving skin visibly softer, smoother, and more youthful in 15 minutes or less. 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.  Here are a few of its perks:

  1. Contains niacinamide, which improves uneven skin tone and brightens skin for a youthful effect.

  2. Vegan collagen hydrates and increases skin elasticity to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

  3. Shea butter soothes and conditions skin to eliminate tightness and restore flexibility.
