If you’re interested in an in-depth explanation of what, exactly, niacinamide is and why it’s such a skin-care miracle worker, you can read all about it here. But the main thing you really need to know about the ingredient is that it’s one of the best multitaskers of the skin-care realm. It’s a form of vitamin B3 that’s been shown to help skin retain moisture, improve skin tone (see ya, dark spots), soften fine lines and wrinkles, correct redness, combat dullness, calm acne flare-ups and even minimize the appearance of pores. Needless to say, any time I see it on a skin-care label, I’m immediately on board.
