These two buzz worthy active ingredients have been popping up in skin care products everywhere from serums, moisturizers, lotions and much more. So what are they and how do they help the oily skin guys and gals who are preparing for the summer months anticipating a greasy mess? We’ve got the breakdown just for you.
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 used to help reduce redness and discoloration due to its antioxidant properties, reduce sebum production and acne by minimizing the appearance of pores, and improve overall skin texture by rebuilding the skin's lipid layer.
