Smoothing
Loved

Niacinamide has emerged as an all-star ingredient due to its many benefits.

It is known to treat acne by reducing inflammation. It also helps fade dark-spots and strengthen the skin by promoting the growth of the ceramide barrier.

Other benefits include smoothing wrinkles and minimizing redness.

The cherry on top? Niacinamide can also help build keratin, a protein that keeps skin firm.

When incorporating niacinamide into your routine, look out for concentration amounts. Typically, 5% niacinamide provides benefits such as fading dark spots. However, if you have sensitive skin, it is better to begin with a smaller concentration.

Niacinamide can be mixed with other ingredients to boost benefits. For instance, it has shown to be effective when used with copper, folic acid, and zinc to treat acne.

My favourite pimple patches, they are super sticky (in a good way) and don't fall off easily like a lot of pimple patches I've tried previously....

My favourite pimple patches, they are super sticky (in a good way) and don't fall off easily like a lot of pimple patches I've tried previously. What I also like about these is a can apply these over my skincare (once it's dried) and they still stick well. They help reduce pimples more than any other brand I've tried, will forever repurchase!
