Both, Niacinamide and Hyaluronic acid are water-based treatments and they can be paired into your skincare routine – and should, if you suffer from dry, dehydrated or super oily skin. When mixed together, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide can improve the overall aspect of your skin, leaving it rejuvenated, minimizing lines and other signs of aging. While hyaluronic acid hydrate skin cells, niacinamide protects the skin's surface and prevent moisture loss.
Let’s dig deeper;
Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that is naturally present in your body as part of your skin’s natural moisturizing factors (NMFs). NMFs control the hydration of your individual skin cells and regulate how much water goes in and out. By applying Hyaluronic acid to your skin, it draws water from the deeper layer of your skin (your dermis) to the outer layer of your skin (your epidermis) and can bind up to one-thousand times its weight in water. When the water within your skin cells is well balanced, it helps increase the elasticity of your skin, keeping it looking healthy and strong.
Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, together, are a super skincare combination as they complement each other’s hydrating effects.
Niacinamides hydrating effects are down to the fact that it increases the levels of ceramides, fatty acids, and cholesterol in your stratum corneum, while hyaluronic acid regulates the water that comes in and out of your skin cells. Pairing niacinamide and hyaluronic acid together mean that you are tackling your skin’s hydration from both angles! In addition, niacinamide helps to boost collagen production while hyaluronic acid improves elasticity so combining the two together can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Here’s some of Niacinamide benefits:
· Boosting collagen production
· Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
· Treating acne
· Reducing inflammation
· Neutralizing free radicals (antioxidant)
· Reducing oil production
· Brightening skin and reducing hyperpigmentation
· Hydrating skin
Collagen is the main protein in human connective tissue. Hyaluronic acid in itself can help us retain more collagen as we age. However, combine this substance with additional collagen, and you're left with a powerhouse anti-aging formula that helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles while also preventing volume loss in the face. Let’s don’t forget that Niacinamide also boosts collagen production.
SO, Hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin moisturized while Niacinamide stimulates the production of Collagen. Adding Collagen to this powerful combination acts like a foundation for the two ingredients while at the same time making sure your skin is constantly getting that collagen "refill" that it needs.
That’s why you can find this golden combination of Hyaluronic acid + Collagen + Niacinamide in ALL Fernian products.
