vitamin B3

noun | vy·tuh·mihn bee three 

A water-soluble vitamin that aids in the process of turning food into energy and plays a role in maintaining the health of skin and nerves.

Vitamin B3, which you can also recognize on beauty labels as niacin or niacinamide, works to strengthen your skin’s outside barrier by increasing the production of its two key components: ceramides and fatty acids. If you’re looking to tackle skin problems like redness, dryness, sensitivity, and/or wrinkles and fine lines, this handy vitamin is your best bet. 

You can find vitamin B3 in Pond’s Clarant B3 Moisturizing Cream, which relies on this beauty ingredient to reduce skin discolorations and redness.

You can also find vitamin B3 in these skincare products:

Mary Kay TimeWise Miracle Set | Burt's Bees Radiance Night Cream | Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer
