What is Niacinamide in skin care?
To better understand the effectiveness of the NIVEA Derma Skin Clear Range for your skin, it’s vital for us to introduce you to the benefits of the three main ingredients utilised within the range, starting with Niacinamide. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3, much like other well known types of Vitamin B3 such as Niacin. However, whilst Niacin is more evidently found within food sources, Niacinamide has been considered to be a type of Vitamin B3 that is particularly well tolerated in skincare. You may be wondering what does Niacinamide do? Especially as you may have heard of a Niacinamide serum or Niacinamide toner when browsing for skin care products. Niacinamide in skin care products can help with inflammatory skin conditions, making it a core ingredient in treating inflamed acne. Niacinamide also helps with sebum-regulation which hydrates the skin and helps control the oiliness of your skin. Niacinamide can also help to keep your skin firm, healthy and retain its moisture, acting as an effective ingredient used to protect oily and blemish-prone skin.
Why use Salicylic Acid for skin care routines?
Another important ingredient utilised in the NIVEA Derma Skin Clear Range is Salicylic Acid. But what does Salicylic Acid do? We would mostly find Salicylic Acid in skincare products used to reduce blemishes. A great first step for anyone's routine could be a cleanser with Salicylic Acid. This is because Salicylic Acid is an excellent chemical exfoliating ingredient, often used to keep the skin fresh and clean by removing dead skin cells. Other benefits of Salicylic Acid for skin is its ability to penetrate the pores, cleansing your skin from the inside. This reduces the occurrence of oily skin that can trap in pores, which is typically the cause of acne. Skin care products such as a Salicylic Acid face wash also have anti-inflammatory effects that help reduce redness, making Salicylic Acid an optimal ingredient used to ensure that your skin brightens with a more even, and healthy complexion. Salicylic Acid is notably effective for blemish-prone skin.
The Importance of Fruit Acids in Skin Care
Fruit Acids are incredible at cleansing your skin, which is why in our NIVEA Derma Skin Clear Range, we utilise a mixture of both Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid to aid in reinvigorating your skin.
- What does Glycolic Acid do?
Glycolic Acid is a fruit acid mainly found in apples and citrus fruits. Glycolic Acid can often be seen as a prominent ingredient when searching for toners, as using a Glycolic Acid toner can visibly improve your skin’s appearance by removing dead skin cells. Glycolic Acid is also the perfect ingredient for a hydrating exfoliator. The Nivea Derma Active Overnight Exfoliator utilises the beneficial properties of Glycolic Acid, through mixing a high concentration of both Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid to create a serum that removes dead skin cells. This smoothes the top layer of the skin and activates the skin's natural renewal process, allowing for a smooth and radiating skin complexion, whilst helping to combat blemishes.
- How about Lactic Acid then?
Unlike Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid is found in lactose in milk. It is also known for its use in skin care products that focuses on exfoliation, whilst also having great anti-aging effects. Lactic Acid is commonly seen as a milder exfoliator suitable for dry or sensitive skin. The NIVEA Derma Skin Clear Anti Blemish Scrub utilises this effect by using both Lactic Acid and Niacinamide to create a scrub, suitable for both face & body. This scrub can instantly refine and unclog pores without drying out your skin, reducing the appearance of white or blackheads.
