Know your niacinamide

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant Retinol, Salicylic Acid and Vitamin C are talked about a lot in the beauty world, but have you heard of Niacinamide?

Nowhere near as scary as it sounds, Niacinamide is an active, water-soluble form of Vitamin B3 and it helps improve the appearance of enlarged pores, hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine lines and can help treat skin conditions, such as acne and eczema.

At Pure Beauty we stock a number of products containing Niacinamide and are going to share them with you today so you can get the skin you deserve.

Many people are concerned about wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, sensitivity and dark circles, which are often due to dehydration, and that is where the Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex comes into play. Niacinamide is just one of the ingredients that has been used to create this breakthrough treatment, and ongoing use can help revitalise dry and prematurely-ageing skin so that it looks radiant once again.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant is fantastic when it comes to gently, but effectively, removing the harmful pollutants that can build up on our skin, and Activated Binchotan Charcoal helps to do this. Niacinamide, Red Algae and Tara Fruit Extract also come together to guard against the damaging effects of pollution, a concern from many people living in cities and built up areas. To use, mix half a teaspoon of powder and water in your hands and massage the creamy paste into your face for around a minute, before rinsing away with warm water and revealing softer, smoother skin.

Many of our customers come to us looking for help with hyperpigmentation, and we often suggest using the Dermalogica Pure Light SPF 50 during the day. This advanced, medium-weight, broad-spectrum moisturiser not only treats hyperpigmentation but also protects the skin against the UV light that causes the problem. Niacinamide, Pumpkin Fruit, Golden Seaweed and Safflower Seeds have been blended to create a powerful daily cream that offers year-round protection and should be applied at least 30 minutes before going outside.

Niacinamide reinforces the skin’s natural defence barrier and can help even skin tone which is why it has been used in the Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Booster. This excellent, acne treatment might be free of artificial colours, fragrances and gluten but thanks to a clever mix of natural ingredients it gets to work in just 15 minutes and delivers pleasing results. Salicylic Acid helps kill bacteria, Phytoplankton Extract prevents drying while Niacinamide reinforces the skin’s barrier and helps even tone and seaweed-derived Chrondrus Crispus Extract, soothes irritation. This product can be applied directly to the affected area and is part of the Dermalogica Clear Start range.

If you have any questions about these or any products, get in touch and we would love to help.
