Mix Niacinamide and Moisturizer?

I've recently started doing this thing where I mix the niacinamide and moisturizer together because it feels more hydrating. I wanted to know if this is safe or if it reduces the efficacy of the niacinamide. I dampen my face a little since TO's Niacinamide is a bit tacky after a couple of minutes. So by mixing these two together and applying it on a damp face feels much more hydrating. Thoughts?

By theory I don’t think there’s any harm in doing that, but you may have skip areas where the application of the niacinamide serum isn’t evenly distributed and I think it may have a tiny effect on the penetration of the product.
