Review(s) on The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%:
"Not so ordinary... It has a gel-like consistency which my skin absorbs quickly. It effectively lightened my acne scars and aided sebum control. I۪m not a fan of the smell though... The price is reasonable for a very potent product. This was my first purchase from the brand and I۪ll definitely try other products." - Dian J.
How to use:
Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.
Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).
Notes: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA can reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. For persistent acne-related conditions, it’s recommended you use Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Retinoic Acid. DECIEM doesn’t recommend ongoing use of BHA such as Salicylic Acid for persistent blemishes. For temporary improvement in appearance of blemishes, Salicylic Acid would help. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits.
Independent studies suggest Niacinamide is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone.
