What Is Niacin-Based Skincare
NIA24 Skincare is based upon the key ingredient, Niacin (commonly known as Vitamin B3). The comprehensive range of products in the NIA24 skincare line work synergistically to help protect the skin against sun damage and the aging process, to renew and regenerate damaged skin. NIA24 features the patented Niacin molecule, Pro-Niacin, which is clinically proven to be highly effective in counteracting sun damage and enables continuous time release of niacin to skin cells. Moreover, NIA24’s innovative Pro-Niacin formulations have been recommended by the National Cancer Institute for their ability to provide the ultimate sun protection and help prevent the development of skin cancer. Little wonder that NIA24 is the US number one recommended physician skincare line.
How NIA24 Works
NIA24 skincare works by stimulating and enhancing the skin’s natural barrier function in order to build stronger, healthier skin that is more resilient and resistant to daily sun and environmental stresses. By improving the skin’s barrier function, the skin’s overall tone and texture improves. NIA24 helps to prevent and diminish the appearance of visible brown spots, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles that are caused by sun damage. In addition, Pro-Niacin also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which further strengthens the skin structure, and increases skin firmness. All NIA24 skincare products are pH balanced and contain optimum concentrations of Pro-Niacin to provide maximum skin beneficial effects. NIA24 is ideal for those who wish to prevent and correct the signs of premature aging, from lines and wrinkles to hyperpigmentation. It is also strengthens the skin, hence is an excellent companion to those who are undergoing serious skincare procedures or treatments.
The Complete NIA24 Skincare Regimen
The main function of Niacin is to increase circulation and to promote the generation of healthy skin cells. As a result of increased circulation, blushing and a sensation of warmth may occur. This shows that Pro-Niacin is hard at work to stimulate the skin’s natural repair processes and renewing healthy skin cells. As the skin barrier becomes stronger, absorption of Niacin will stabilize and the blushing or other side effects should subside. The time it takes to adjust to the NIA24 skin regimen differs for people with different skin types. More sensitive skin types often require 7 to 10 days to adjust to a new regimen. While using the NIA24 Skin System, some may experience the following:
- First Blush: A warming sensation that can lead to redness or irritation. Apply a cold compress to soothe the skin. The redness and itchiness should subside within several hours.
- Initial Breakout: As skin adjusts to increased Niacin, a breakout may occur due to temporarily increased sebaceous activity. Breakouts may be minimized or avoided by slowly adding products every other day with a light application, and gradually increasing their use until the full regimen is incorporated over 10 days.
- Dryness: Depending on environmental and dermal moisture levels, skin can experience increased dryness. The barrier’s ability to retain moisture and resist damage inside can make surface skin feel dry. To limit dryness, use a humectant or additional moisturizer to help correct the skin’s moisture balance.
