Also known as Niacinamide, vitamin B3 has many positive benefits for the skin but in particular it is well known for being fantastic against existing breakouts and preventing future breakouts as well as reducing pigmentation and dark spots on the skin caused by sun damage.
Vitamin B3 is known to be extremely effective against reducing inflamed areas of skin such as those caused by blemishes, spots and acne-prone areas. It brings down the swelling and redness of the surrounding area.
For those who are prone to breakouts and acne, Vitamin B3 can not only reduce visibility and swelling of existing spots but it is also excellent for preventing further breakouts due to reducing the oily sebum production.
Finally, Vitamin B3 is also a mild exfoliator so it helps to rid the skin of dead skin cells, making way for healthy new skin to develop. Especially if it is coupled with other active ingredients that encourage healthy skin growth such as in our Clarity Skin Clearing Spot Gel.
