Niacinamide Used To Fade Pih

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone heard of Niacinamides? This ingredient is usually used in anti-aging products because it works wonders for making your skin look plumper. But it also does a great job in evening out skin tone and fading inflammatory discoloration like PiH.

I heard lots of great reviews about Olay Regenerist 3 point serum which contains Niacinamides as one of its main ingredients. I've used it for about 5 days now and already I can see improvements. My skin looks brighter and I have little to no acne.

However, I did some research on this ingredient and there has been a lot of mixed opinions about it. Scientists have done experiments on yeast using niacinamides and results have shown that it is actually pro-aging in the long term even though it shows good results in the short term. Yet other doctors claim that this might not be factual because the experiment was done on yeast and its hard to apply those results to actual human skin.

So now I'm confused. Are Niacinamides good or bad? I don't want my skin to age prematurely. Has anyone had experience with Niacinamides before?

I'm interested as well. My naturopath is ordering me some Niacinamide cream to help with active acne. I didn't know it had the other benefits and possible side effects. For active acne, she said she didn't think I would need to be on it for long. Once the skin is repleted with the nutrients, it's repleted.

My routine:

Think BCP "regulate" your cycle? It could be making things worse!
