The Miracle Worker: Niacinamide and Sunscreen

Have you ever heard of the miracle worker that is niacinamide?

Also known as vitamin B3, it’s a skincare superhero that you should be adding to your routine. Not only does it protect skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but it also helps to reduce signs of aging and acne! Let’s get into why niacinamide and sunscreen are an effective combination for healthier skin.

Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that helps to repair and strengthen the skin’s barrier. It has amazing anti-aging and antioxidant properties, which help to protect skin from pollution, free radical damage, inflammation, redness and dryness. It can also help improve uneven skin tone, dullness, dark spots and wrinkles. Plus, because it’s water-soluble (not oil-soluble), it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.

How Does Niacinamide Help with Sun Protection?
When niacinamide is combined with sunscreen, it provides an extra layer of protection against UV rays. Studies have found that when applied topically together, niacinamide and sunscreen were more effective at blocking UVB radiation than either product alone. This means that when you use both products together in your daily skincare routine, you’re getting double the protection from the sun’s harmful rays!

Can Niacinamide Replace Sunscreen?

Although niacinamide has been found to have some protective properties against UVB radiation when used with sunscreen, it should not replace your regular sunscreen use. Sunscreen still remains one of the most important steps in any skincare routine as its primary purpose is to protect against UVA/UVB radiation; something niacinamide cannot do on its own. Therefore, while using both products together can be beneficial in many ways (including reducing signs of aging or acne), they should never be completely interchangeable.
Conclusion: In conclusion, if you want healthier looking skin—free from wrinkles or dark spots—then consider adding both sunscreen and niacinamides to your daily skincare routine! While these two miracle workers work best when used together for maximum protection against UVB radiation (and other environmental aggressors like pollution), make sure you don’t skip out on using regular sunscreen as this type of protection can’t be replaced by anything else! With these tips in mind—and a little bit of patience—you’ll be well on your way towards achieving glowing skin in no time!
