Benefits of Niacinimide for Skin

Do you have dry, dehydrated, aging skin? Or
how about hyperpigmentation and large pores? If you have sensitive, reactive, red,
blotchy skin, and you’ve tried Vitamin C, and you’ve tried Retin-A or Retinol, and
you ended up getting a rash or blotchy skin, then today we’re going to be
talking about another anti-aging alternative, and we’re going to be
talking about “The Six Anti-Aging Benefits of Niacinamide”.
Hi, my name is Christy with Go See Christy Beauty Boutique, located in
Southern California, and I have been treating clients with Acne,
hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and other skin conditions for
over eleven years, and we’re going to be talking about Niacinamide. I actually got
a couple requests the past two-and-a half weeks about Niacinamide.
One person in particular heard a lot about it on YouTube, put it on, and she
actually got really red, blotchy skin. So we’re going to be talking about
Niacinamide and how you can incorporate that into your skin care if you have
Rosacea, sensitive skin, or reactive skin. So the first one is, Niacinamide has multiple benefits. So it is an anti-aging ingredient, it actually improves
elasticity, it actually helps reduce hyperpigmentation, and redness, and
blotchiness, sallowness of your skin — which is the yellowing of skin. It
also helps with increasing hydration and helping this, the fine lines and wrinkles.
Niacinamide also has shown in clinical trials to be more tolerated by all
different types of skin types. Unless, some people have found it to be reactive
when mixed using Vitamin C and AHA’s — Retin-A’s and Retinols. So, also, if
you are using any of those products that is leave-on, and then you put Niacinamide
on top of it or it’s mixed, you tend to develop redness and rashes if you are
more on the sensitive side. If you are using an AHA-based exfoliant or
cleanser that’s rinsed off, that tends to work better with Niacinamide. It also has
been shown to SHRINK the pores. So, it is not only better tolerated by most skin
types, but if you have oily, or combination-oily, or breakout-prone skin,
with regular use it actually helps minimize the appearance of large pores.
Now this can also be because it actually increases the skin’s ability to hold the
water and increases the hydration capability of the skin. So with oily and
Acne skin types, when you have MORE hydration your skin produces a LESS oil. So, not only does it INCREASE the hydration capabilities of your skin, it’s
actually a moisturization-booster in moisturizers, and it actually helps speed
the Epithelialization of the skin, and helps the photo protection of the skin which
can then lead to the improving of the skin’s natural barrier. So whenever, so
for example, well-, when you’re reducing inflammation, or decreasing dehydration
of the skin, this actually leads to the overall health of your skin, slowing down
the amino-aging of the skin. Now before we get to the other benefits of
Niacinamide, if you are finding this information
helpful, please give it a THUMBS UP, and if you haven’t subscribed to the channel
yet and would like to still continue to learn more about skincare products, the
application of products, and their ingredients, then please consider

benefit! In clinical studies, when Niacinamide was applied directly onto
the skin, they showed results in reduction of fine lines and wrinkles,
reduction of hyperpigmented spots, yellowing of the skin, and blotchiness of the skin. In a
clinical study that was done on 50 Caucasian females aged 40-to-60, and it
was a blind test, placebo controlled, left-right randomized, and split-faced
test assessing two tropical products… Not tropical… TOPICAL! Tropical! Okay. Two tropical! I need
a little fruit thing on my head. Chiquita Banana! Sorry!
Like, I’m going cuckoo here. Okay. Assessing two topical products. So one of
them was just a moisturizer controlled product versus a moisturizer plus 5%
Niacinamide in it. And so what they found was, in that
testing, the people that use the moisturizer that had the 5% Niacinamide
had significant improvements in their fine lines and wrinkles, in their
hyperpigmentation spots, as well as the redness, blotchiness, and sallowness of
skin over just the moisturizer control products, so the one NOT containing the
Niacinamide. So like i mentioned before, some people have experienced some rashes
or skin irritations using the Niacinamide and it’s usually because
they are mixing, or using another product that has L-Ascorbic Acid — which is
Vitamin C — or Retinol, Retin-A, or AHA’s. And so if you haven’t seen the video of
“Anti-Aging Ingredients You Should NEVER Mix”, then go ahead and click on that
above or below to check that out. So if you are thinking about or considering
using Niacinamide and incorporating that into your skin care, then please hop on
over to my blog, we’re going to go ahead and put it in the links. To avoid making
this video much longer, I’m going to be evaluating some of the Niacinamide
products according to their ingredients and what I think may be a better fit for
your skin type. So, all the links, including to the clinical trials, or
products, or any of those will always be in the description below. And remember
that make-up is always an ART and skin care is a SCIENCE.
