Vitamin B is such an underestimated skincare ingredient. When it comes to topical vitamin B for the skin, the two variations of this Vitamin you’ll need to know about are Niacinamide and Panthenol. Both help with hydration and dullness, plus these ingredients are gentle enough that any skin type can benefit from adding them to their skincare routine.
Also known as vitamin B3, Niacinamide might be one of the best ingredients you can use. It’s incredibly beneficial for all skin types, from increasing the natural moisturising factors of your skin to treating blemishes and helping reduce inflammation.
It’s also an excellent addition for those who have oily skin because it can help with control oil production. It’s even gentle enough for those with sensitive or rosacea-prone skin.
Benefits Of Niacinimide
- Immunity - Niacinamide helps build Keratin, a type of protein that keeps your skin firm and healthy
- Lipid barrier strenghtening
- Minimises redness and blotchiness
- Minimises pore appearance
- Regulates oil production
- Protects against sun damage
- Treats hyperpigmentation
- Minimises fine lines and wrinkles
- Anti-inflammatory effect on the skin
Another underestimated ingredient, Panthenol (also called Provitamin B5) is more commonly found in hydration skincare products. Once applied to your skin, it converts to vitamin B5 or Pantothenic Acid. It then works by binding to water and holding it effectively in your skin - resulting in hydrated, healthy skin.
Benefits of Panthenol
- Improves moisture retention
- Prevents water loss in skin
- Helps speed up wound healing
- Soothes inflammation
