4 BEST NIACINAMIDE SERUMS FOR BRIGHTER LOOKING SKIN
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 and can do wonders for your skin. Vitamin B3 is an important nutrient that your body needs as it helps to balance oil production, reduces inflammation and also nourishes the skin. Regular use of niacinamide can help brighten up your skin and that is something I know we all want.
Although niacinamide is available in various skincare and makeup products, but the best way to use it is in the form of a serum. That way it absorbs well into the skin and produces visible effects. It is important to layer the niacinamide serum properly, otherwise it just does not work. Make sure to use to right after cleansing your face but before application of a moisturizer.
Now that we have covered what niacinamide is and how to use it properly, let’s discuss 4 best serums for brighter looking skin:
THE ORDINARY - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
I think The Ordinary was the brand that first started introducing the use of serums and acids, or was it the first brand that blew up? Either way, their niacinamide was the very first one I got my hands on and loved it. It’s so affordable and features 10% niacinamide + 1% zinc. I liked using it every other morning, before using my moisturizer and I felt that it really helped to control my skin’s oil production. With constant use, this product also helps to tone down the marks left behind from acne.
THE INKEY LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serum
A cult favorite and for good reason! The Niacinamide serum by The Inkey List helps to reduce oil production, fight blemishes and even takes care of the redness caused by acne. The price point is amazing and quite affordable.
PAULA’S CHOICE- 10% Niacinamide Booster
This one isn’t as affordable as the other two serums I mentioned, but if you are ready to really invest in your skincare, get your hands on this Niacinamide booster from Paula’s Choice. It has 10% concentration of niacinamide along with a few other amazing ingredients such as vitamin C. The formula is lightweight and has proven to be quite beneficial for your skin.
GLOSSIER- Super Pure Niacinamide + Zinc Serum
While the other serums I mentioned have a 10% concentration of niacinamide, this one by Glossier has only 5% but since it’s combined with zinc, the results are promising. The product helps to balance out your skin while also hydrating it. The texture is water-like and is absorbed into your skin without feeling sticky.
I’ve given you 4 amazing options; 2 affordable ones and 2 high-end ones. Whichever one you pick, you won’t regret adding it to your skincare collection!
