Niacinamide Is the Do-It-All Ingredient You Need to Be Using - Here's Why

Niacinamide - also known as vitamin B3 or nicotinamide - certainly isn't a new or unheard-of skin-care ingredient, though it's recently started getting a ton of buzz in the beauty industry. Much like retinol, it's somewhat of a do-it-all ingredient, and it can help resolve or improve a number of skin issues.

According to dermatologist Shari Sperling, DO, niacinamide can help with inflammation, decrease redness in skin, moisturize and hydrate the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and decrease oil production. Additionally, it's suitable for every skin type and can even be combined with other ingredients, like hyaluronic acid.

From moisturizers to serums, there's a good chance you've seen niacinamide lurking in some of your products as of late, but if you haven't yet added it to your routine, read ahead to check out a few trusty skin-care products you can find it in.
