Our conclusion: Niacinamide is so popular because the active ingredient simply offers so many benefits. Due to its good tolerance, it is also very versatile and suitable for almost every skin type. Those with oily skin and enlarged pores will be delighted with niacinamide, as the active ingredient helps to regulate the production of skin oil and thus refine the pores. Even skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, or hyperplasia can be helped in many ways by niacinamide, contributing to a visibly more beautiful complexion. 

How to use Niacinamide?
Similar to retinol or vitamin C, niacinamide is also found in various skincare products. The active ingredient is often found in face creams, wash gels, and creams. For an extra boost, niacinamide is also available from many brands in the form of a serum. Due to its light texture, it can be absorbed particularly quickly into the skin. In this way, very specific needs of the skin can be specifically triggered, no matter whether the first wrinkles are to be combated or the natural glow of the skin is to be increased. 

When choosing a care product, it is important to pay attention to the respective niacinamide concentration of the product. Too high a concentration can temporarily lead to undesired skin redness, as the vitamin briefly dilates the blood vessels. Beginners are best off with a concentration of 1-5%, while more mature skin types and those experienced with niacinamide are better off with serums containing up to 10% niacinamide.

In general, niacinamide can be used at any time of day. Depending on the formulation, once or twice a day. Combining it with other products is usually no problem either. Care should only be taken when using niacinamide in combination with vitamin C. The acidic pH value of vitamin C is potentially problematic here. This is because niacinamide can transform into nicotinic acid in an acidic environment, which can temporarily cause redness on particularly sensitive skin. Our recommendation: Simply wait 15-30 minutes before using the next product. This gives the skin a little time for the normal pH value to settle again.
