If you’re looking for a product that can multitask then niacinamide might just be your new best friend! Niacinamide is known to provide everything from moisturized skin to smoother texture.

What is niacinamide?

Niacinamide is a skincare ingredient that is a derivative of vitamin B. You can achieve great results with a relatively low concentration of niacinamide and it’s great for serving a lot of the function that you need within your skincare.

What are some of the best niacinamide swaps?

Niacinamide can be used in place of other products, which means less products in your line up and less impact on your skincare budget. Here are some products that you can easily swap out for niacinamide:

Antioxidant Serum

Known for protecting your skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV, antioxidant serums are a commonly used product that comes with challenges.

Although niacinamide isn’t technically an antioxidant, it’s application can help jumpstart the production of antioxidants.

Antibiotic Cream

Antibiotic creams are often used to help reduce acne. They kill the bad bacteria that cause breakouts and can be anti-inflammatory for zits.

Studies have shown that niacinamide can work just as well as antibiotic creams. Niacinamide is also a great swap as it reduces the concern for reliance on an antibiotic cream if used for long periods of time.

Face Oil

You might get a nice glow from using a face oil, but it is also helpful to your skin because it includes fats that help to protect the skin from the elements, and help it to retain moisture.

Niacinamide works to stimulate your skin’s production of lipids and an increase in ceramides. It can also decrease the level of sebum in your skin which helps it to become less oily. You won’t be compromising shine for strength!
