Niacinamide Serum | Brightening, Pore-Refining, and Anti-Aging Skincare
10% Niacinamide serum is a skincare product that contains 10% concentration of niacinamide, which is a form of vitamin B3. A serum with a 10% concentration of niacinamide is considered relatively high and can provide potent effects. Niacinamide has gained popularity in the skincare industry due to its numerous benefits for the skin.
Here are some common uses and benefits of niacinamide serum:
- Regulation of sebum production: Niacinamide helps regulate the production of sebum, the skin’s natural oil. It can be beneficial for both oily and acne-prone skin by reducing excessive oiliness and preventing clogged pores.
- Minimizing pore appearance: Niacinamide has the ability to tighten pores, making them appear smaller and less noticeable. This can give the skin a smoother and more refined appearance.
- Reducing hyperpigmentation: Niacinamide can help fade dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. It inhibits the transfer of melanin (pigment) to the skin cells, resulting in a more even complexion.
- Enhancing skin barrier function: Niacinamide strengthens the skin’s natural barrier, which helps protect against environmental damage, pollution, and moisture loss. A healthy skin barrier is crucial for maintaining hydration and preventing skin sensitivity.
- Anti-inflammatory properties: Niacinamide has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm redness, irritation, and inflammation in the skin. It is often used to alleviate symptoms of conditions like acne, rosacea, and eczema.
- Boosting collagen production: Collagen is a protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Niacinamide stimulates collagen synthesis, helping to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Antioxidant effects: Niacinamide exhibits antioxidant activity, which helps protect the skin from free radicals and oxidative stress. This can help slow down the signs of aging and promote overall skin health.

To apply niacinamide serum, follow these steps:
- Cleanse your face: Start with a clean face by washing it with a gentle cleanser (Bioreva Radiance Foaming Cleanser recommended) suitable for your skin type. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel.
- In addition, Tone (optional): If you use a toner in your skincare routine, apply it after cleansing and before applying the niacinamide serum. This step helps to balance the skin’s pH and prepare it for better absorption of the serum.
- Dispense the serum: Shake the niacinamide serum bottle if required, then dispense a few drops onto your fingertips or directly onto the areas you want to target.
- Apply to the face: Gently spread the serum over your face using upward and outward motions. Focus on areas of concern, such as uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, or enlarged pores. You can apply it to the entire face or concentrate on specific areas, depending on your needs.
- Massage and absorb: Using your fingertips, massage the serum into your skin using gentle circular motions. This helps to ensure even distribution and absorption. Allow the serum to fully absorb into your skin before moving on to the next step.
- Finally, follow with moisturizer: Once the niacinamide serum has been absorbed, apply your regular moisturizer to lock in the hydration and provide additional nourishment to your skin. This step helps to seal in the benefits of the serum and maintain skin hydration.
