I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: why should your face have all the fun?
You’ll often see niacinamide in skincare and even makeup, but did you know your body will benefit just as much? That’s why my Niacinamide Body Scrub and Niacinamide Correcting Body Serum double down on brightening, anti-ageing, and compliment-getting benefits.
What is niacinamide?
You might know me as vitamin B3, but my besties call me niacinamide.
And because we’re besties, I’m happy to give you loads of benefits. Especially for your (hot) bod.
Niacinamide is an essential, water-soluble vitamin here to support healthy skin. Your body doesn’t produce it on its own so it has to come from diet, skincare, or (wait for it) body care.
What makes niacinamide so nice?
I’m so glad you asked. Niacinamide is a multi-tasking superstar that helps with so many skin concerns. At least seven, in fact.
1. Sun damage destroyer.
Niacinamide helps protect the skin against sun damage. It rebuilds healthy cells while protecting from the damage caused by UV rays. But do not mistake me for sunscreen, babe.
2. Free radicals? Denied.
Think of your skin as a night club and free radicals as the bad guys you don’t want to let in. They’re an environmental stressor that cause all kinds of havoc, and niacinamide is here to block them out.
3. A lipid bit of restoration.
Your lipid barrier is the outermost layer of your skin, also known as the skin barrier or moisture barrier. Niacinamide works to restore this barrier, resulting in healthier skin that’s better at locking moisture in.
Hot tip: this is especially nice for mature skin that’s more prone to moisture loss.
4. Help with hyperpigmentation.
Dark spots or other types of hyperpigmentation can be visibly brightened by niacinamide. If dark spots or age spots are keeping you out of your bikini (they shouldn’t, btw) then niacinamide is what you should look for.
5. Skin so bright, it’s a delight.
This is what I’m most famous for. Dialling up the brightness on skin that looks luminous, glowing, brighter than ever. Even dermatologists have scientifically agreed that it makes your skin glow. And that you look good today.
6. Leave redness on read.
Babes might experience redness from eczema or acne, especially on your body. Think: chestne, buttne, bacne or red and inflamed elbows and knees. Niacinamide is a calm presence for skin, helping to soothe redness and irritation.
7. Pore-fectly nice skin.
Let’s be clear, pores are the size of pores. They can’t actually be made smaller. But by regulating the amount of oil in your pores, niacinamide can minimise their appearance and help treat acne and breakouts. Boom.

One last benefit that only I can give you? To smell berry nice with my sophisticated fruity floral scent. I’m niac like that.
