How Do SPF & Niacinamide Sunscreens Ensure Sun Protection and Radiant Skin?

How Do SPF & Niacinamide Sunscreens Ensure Sun Protection and Radiant Skin?

If there is one skincare ingredient that works absolutely fine with all skin types, has numerous skin benefits, and can be paired with your regular sunscreen, then it has to be niacinamide!

We all are aware of how imperative it is to apply sunscreen daily on your skin. But, when combined with niacinamide, your sunscreen's skincare properties can get a boost and have wonderful lasting effects on your skin. This means, that while protecting your skin from harsh UV rays, your sunscreen will also secretly work on repairing your existing skin conditions, making your skin appear radiant and youthful.

Niacinamide is a powerhouse ingredient that softens, soothes, and improves skin texture when applied in an appropriate quantity. Here is everything you need to know about Niacinamide and how it can complement your daily skincare routine.

How SPF Niacinamide Sunscreens Provide Sun Protection Radiant Skin?

Niacinamide is a widely accepted and popular variant of Vitamin B3. Due to its water-soluble properties, niacinamide can easily be absorbed into the upper layer of your skin, without leaving any residue or adverse effects. On the other hand, sunscreen creates a thick layer on your skin, blocking harmful UVA and UVB rays from infiltrating deep into your skin, leading to skin issues such as sunburn, premature ageing hyperpigmentation, and other issues related to sun damage.

The combination of niacinamide and SPF can help enhance the skin's natural barrier which is essential for retaining moisture and protecting your skin from environmental stressors. The water-soluble nature of Niacinamide makes it extremely easy to blend with almost all skin types, maintaining the skin's natural balance and integrity.

As per studies, niacinamide also has been found to have photoprotective properties that can help protect the skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation. So, walking out of your house wearing sunscreen infused with the goodness of niacinamide will offer double protection, while retaining the youthful appearance of your skin. For compelling results, reapplication of the sunscreen should be done after every 2-3 hours, especially while travelling outdoors during day hours.

Skin Benefits Of Using Niacinamide

1. Improves skin Barrier Function

Niacinamide plays a major role in strengthening the lipid barrier of the skin by promoting the production of ceramides and elastins. The outstanding properties of niacinamide help retain moisture and promote the growth of new skin cells.

2. Enhances Skin Texture

Direct and excessive exposure to the sun can make your skin appear rough, dull, and unevenly toned. Regularly applying sunscreen with niacinamide as the key ingredient can help build keratin (healthy protein) in your skin, making it look firm, plump, and healthier.

3. Brighten Skin Tone

Decreasing the amount of melanin transfer, niacinamide helps lighten the dark spots on your skin and make your skin brighter and healthier. However, it is important to note that to treat hyperpigmentation, you must use niacinamide serum as sunscreen with niacinamide may not be sufficient to cure the problem. Try Pond's Bright Beauty 12% Gluta-Niacinamide serum to achieve a flawless, radiant, and beautiful-looking skin tone.

4. Regulate oil production

Excessive oil production can lead to acne, frequent breakouts, and other related problems. By reducing excess sebum production, niacinamide helps minimize the appearance of enlarged pores and control oil without drying out the skin.

How Often Should You Reapply Sunscreen?

Sunscreens come with different Sun Protection Factors (SPF) levels indicating how long it would take the sun's UV rays to affect your skin than if you don't use a sunscreen. Hence, the higher the SPF levels the longer the sunscreen will last on your skin. So, no matter what SPF levels of sunscreen you apply to your skin, a sufficient application of sunscreen will protect your skin for a certain period of time. Hence, sunscreen with SPF levels between 15 to 35 is more suitable on days when your skin is not directly exposed to sun rays. Whereas, sunscreen with SPF levels between 40 to 55 or beyond is more suitable on days when you have to travel for long hours, exposing your skin to direct UV rays.

Additionally, most sunscreen can only last up to 2 to 3 hours when exposed directly to the UV rays. Ideally, the reapplication of sunscreen should be done after every 2 to 3 hours to offer the best protection to your skin.

Conclusion

Incorporating sunscreen infused with the goodness of niacinamide into your skincare routine can help your skin look radiant, fresh, and naturally glowing all day long. To get the best results, ensure to apply your sunscreen 15 to 20 minutes before stepping outside your house. Always follow the two-finger rule to apply sunscreen on your face, taking two strips of your sunscreen on your index and middle finger.
