Niacinamide Gel - Acne, Scars, Rosacea, Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Skin Lightening, Anti Aging Niacinamide gel belongs in the kit of anyone who is suffering from a variety of facial or skin problems. It has been proven in scientific studies to have a positive effect in reducing common facial skin issues, and treating acne effectively on other body areas such as the back, chest, and shoulders. Popular and bestselling Acnessential brand of niacinamide gel, although mainly promoted as an acne treatment, is also widely used for treating hyperpigmentation and dark blotches, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, skin lightening, anti aging, rosacea, and scar fading and removal. Despite its strange sounding name, niacinamide gel is actually a water soluble version of vitamin B3. It is also known as niacin which is considered beneficial in reducing cholesterol in the bloodstream. In gel form, it can relieve inflammation of the skin while returning moisture without having to resort to expensive creams. Niacinamide gel also has bleaching or lightening properties, which can even out areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin. Those who suffer from rosacea can see a tangible improvement by using niacinamide gel. The theory behind the use is that it improves the skin barrier, allowing more moisture to be retained. More moisture in the skin lessens the redness that is a typical feature for rosacea. The ultimate use for niacinamide gel is for wrinkles and fine lines. Skin loses moisture with age, something that is difficult to replenish. It is not a matter of drinking more water to get the face to fill out. Instead, it takes a product like niacinamide to improve the water vapour barrier in the skin, replacing the lost moisture. Increasing the skin's water moisture content will fill out the lines. In turn, a more youthful appearance is restored to the user.
