Also known as Nicotinamide, Vitamin B3 has been well proven to assist in healing acne and pimples and is also a super hydrator and helps to even skin tone. In fact, Vitamin B3 plays a really important role on a number of levels for skin health.
Epidermal Barrier Function
Vitamin B3 increases our ceramide synthesis which put simply means, Vitamin B3 participates at a cellular level through differing functionalities one of which includes repairing any skin damage.
Irritation and Acne
An improved epidermal barrier, as described above, will naturally lessen the amount of irritation from negative environmental exposure. In terms of acne and other inflammatory conditions, Vitamin B3 has the ability to inhibit the movement of inflammatory aspects of the skin's immune system.*
For our use at MISMO, Vitamin B3 offers some very real and lasting benefits in our Acne specific products, in particular our Blemish Gel. One of the most significant benefits is where antibiotics become resistant to bacteria after about 8 weeks Vitamin B3 does not, which makes our Blemish Gel an extremely effective and safe treatment for pimples, acne and Rosacea Acne.
Combined with other key ingredients including ac.net, Vitamin B5, E & A, Aloe Vera, MSM and Hyaluronic Acid, MISMO's Blemish Gel provides pH balance, calms redness, controls bacteria, inflammation and excess oil.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Vitamin B3 has actually been found to stimulate collagen which helps to increase moisture levels in the skin which in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles, which is why MISMO also uses Vitamin B3 in the New Age Moisturiser. The New Age Moisturiser targets the 7 pillars of ageing skin, a number of which Vitamin B3 plays an integral role in.
After all is said and done, Vitamin B3 can help your skin on a number of levels and is something that should be genuinely considered when faced with the prospect of going down the antibiotics path for acne.
