Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is an essential vitamin found in red meat and leafy green vegetables. It has many essential roles in the body which can improve your general health and skin health in particular. One important way it can improve skin health is by increasing the production of ceramides. Ceramides are an essential component of the skin lipid barrier which keep the skin strong and prevent water loss through the skin. This prevents the skin drying out and helps the skin stay strong and supple.
Niacin can also slow down the transfer of melanin to the epidermis which can help reduce hyper pigmentation. Niacin can also directly absorb UV light and help reduce damage to the skin due to free radicals. Niacin can also boost the production of collagen which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines of wrinkles. The Hydra-lift Golden Facial treatment mask contains niacin to provide the boost that this essential ingredient can provide to the skin.
