PCA SKIN is known as a global leader in skin health education and has been innovating for over 25 years. Producing ground-breaking skincare products for professional treatment rooms as well as daily care for domestic use, PCA SKIN formulates products with a combination of ingredients that target individual skin types for maximum results. One of these key ingredients is Niacinamide.
Niacinamide’s Skin Care Benefits Are So Vast, It’s About To Become Your New Favourite Ingredient
Benefits of Niacinamide (vitamin B3):
1. Normalises the skin’s oil production to keep pores clear and breakouts in check
2. Regulates pigment-making cells to fade hyperpigmentation
3. Soothes redness with its anti-inflammatory properties
4. Protects from free-radical damage
5. Boosts your skin’s hydration level
“Niacinamide is a key ingredient to powerfully treat age-related skin changes, acne, and skin discolouration. It naturally calms the skin and provides dramatic skin brightening for a wide variety of skin types. It’s also been proven to treat a number of types of acne” – Dr Paris, Harley Street cosmetic doctor.
“I’m a massive fan of PCA Skin’s Dual Action Redness Relief and Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum. Both of these can be incorporated effectively into your home care routine. The dual action redness relief contains 4% niacinamide which reduces transepidermal water loss maintaining the skins protective barrier system, it also helps reduce excess oil production, improves congestion and breakouts as well as targeting textural changes and uneven skin tone.”
“PCA’s Skin Ideal Complex Restorative Eye Cream can be used alongside it. Not only does this gorgeous product melt into the delicate eye skin but more importantly it targets puffy eyes, helps with dark circles and reduces eye bags all while actively infusing antioxidants into your skin. Your eyes will thank you!”
These products are safe to use on any and all skin types and will generally work well alongside your own beauty products. “The only interaction to be aware of is that niacinamide inactivates L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) if it is in a combined water-based product. You can still use niacinamide and vitamin c but they should be in different products and preferably not used back to back!” says Dr Paris.
