REDUCE REDNESS WITH VITAMIN B
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.
