RE­DUCE RED­NESS WITH VI­TA­MIN B

Best - - BEST FOR HEALTH -

What it does This is great for when skin needs a mois­ture boost and pro­tec­tion from red­ness. There are var­i­ous forms of vi­ta­min B, but the most pop­u­lar is B3 – known as niaci­namide – which im­proves skin-bar­rier func­tion, stim­u­lates col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and helps to re­duce hyper­pig­men­ta­tion, all while be­ing anti-in­flam­ma­tory. It’s also a milder al­ter­na­tive to ex­fo­lia­tors like gly­colic acid.

Try it out Niaci­namide can be found in many high-street mois­turis­ers. Ap­ply morn­ing and night, but avoid the eye area. If any ir­ri­ta­tion oc­curs, leave the prod­uct for one or two days, then try us­ing ev­ery other day. If ir­ri­ta­tion con­tin­ues, stop us­ing it.

In the clinic If your aim is to re­duce lines and wrin­kles, try a ra­dio-fre­quency treat­ment like Forma by In­vasix, which heats up the skin, tight­en­ing and firm­ing up the com­plex­ion. Pain-free with no down­time, re­sults can be seen after just one treat­ment. From £300 per ses­sion.
