B3 versus B5
B3: THE REDUCER VERSUS B5: THE HYDRATOR
5 ways that Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) battles to improve your skin
- Reduces oil production by inhibiting the flow of oil to the skin's surface
- Reduces the flushing and blushing associated with rosacea as it is non-irritating & anti-inflammatory
- Inhibits the transfer of pigment to skin cells, therefore reducing dark spots
- Improves the appearance of ageing skin as it is an antioxidant that also aids in sun protection together with regular sunscreen use
- Is entirely non-irritating and therefore safe to use on sensitive skins
5 ways that Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) packs a punch
- Stabilises the skin’s barrier function by keeping moisture in and irritants out
- Enhances wound healing
- Is a humectant which is a water binding substance that attracts and retains water helping to keep the skin hydrated when faced with environmental insults
- Reduces inflammation in the skin
- Regenerates dry and compromised skin as this vitamin is one of the core ingredients for energy production in all cells.
