Celebrity Beauty Secret Ingredient: Niacin

Feed your skin with this essential nutrient

-Paige Herman Axel

marcia crossYou know you’re a child of the 80s if you remember those Yoo Hoo commercials where the little kids pop up and name the vitamins and minerals. For some bizarre reason, I still think of that when I come across a product that contains niacin in particular. But niacin is no longer reserved for those “Food Facts” labels, and it started appearing in skincare products a few years ago.

If there’s one thing Michelle Williams, Renee Zellweger, Marcia Cross, Amy Adams, Jennifer Garner, and Debra Messing all have in common, it’s gorgeous skin. And the one thing they all have in common is that they are fans of the NIA 24 and Canyon Ranch Your Transformation skincare lines, both of which feature niacin.

Niacin is an essential nutrient that plays a variety of roles in our bodies. It’s required for healthy circulation and the proper functioning of the nervous system while it lowers triglycerides and cholesterol and helps with the formation of stomach fluids and sex hormones (multivitamins for everyone!). In terms of the skin, niacin has been found to help bring blood (and the nutrients it contains) to the surface of the skin, and it’s extremely effective for improving the appearance of the rough texture, uneven pigment and wrinkles associated with sun damage.

  1. Niacin is a topical skin care line that includes: creamy cleanser, physical srub, skin strengthening lotion, intensive cream and sunscreen(that actually has the same active 5% Niacin, so functions as a treatment and sunscreen). Great line with very little potential for side effects.

  2. Recently tried Pro fractional Laser, what a tremendous treatment! No matter your age, it gives long lasting glow from inside to the outside. Firming for those of us past 40. And my Dr. suggested I switch to NIA 24 products. Excellent results and quite soon, about 6 weeks, lots more firming to looser jaw line. Try it, it does work!
