A popular form of Vitamin B3, niacinamide is an active skin ingredient that works like magic on all skin types. This miraculous ingredient improves skin texture, controls excess sebum production, and recuses the appearance of open pores. When combined with SPF properties, niacinamide helps create a protective barrier on your skin against harmful UV rays, sun exposure, and boosts ceramide production to make your skin appear smooth and clear. Continue reading this blog till the end to discover interesting facts about niacinamide with sunscreens, and why you should consider using niacinamide in your daily skincare routine.

Understanding the SPF and Niacinamide Combination in Skincare

The skincare journey is a long ride, but with the right ingredients and an appropriate understanding of your skin type, one can easily witness significant improvements within just a few months. Being a water-soluble vitamin, Niacinamide can easily blend with almost all skin types and promote healthy-looking and even-toned skin. This means whether you have an oily, dry or combination skin type, this powerhouse ingredient will always have your back!

On the other hand, sunscreens come with different SPF (Sun Protection Factor) levels and ingredients that offer protection against a host of skin problems when exposed to harmful ultraviolet sun rays. Damaging ultraviolet or UV rays are most active during the day. Hence, walking out of your house without sunscreen can make your skin vulnerable to potential skin problems such as sunburn, premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and in some cases, even skin cancer.

The seamless combination of niacinamide with sunscreen can create a skin barrier that not only protects your skin from the sun, but also works as a rejuvenating agent for existing skin problems. Found naturally in substances such as fish, vegetables, and various grains, niacinamide can easily be absorbed in the upper layer of your skin without causing any skin irritation or other related skin issues.

Despite being the powerhouse ingredient in the world of skincare products niacinamide is absolutely safe to use regularly. For the best results, ensure to apply your niacinamide sunscreen 15 to 20 minutes before stepping outside your house. Ensure to squeeze the two strips of sunscreen on your index and middle finger to apply a sufficient amount of product, and lastly, pair it with a hydrating moisturiser to lock your skin against harmful sun exposure.
