Niacinamide Newbie

Hey guys! Today I used my Niacinamide Serum for the first time (successfully, the actual first time it pilled so i just washed it off). It did sting a little, is this normal? I mean it wasn’t terrible and it didn’t last long. I also mixed it with my HA serum to avoid layering & it pilling again. This worked perfectly Any suggestions or advice on using this ingredient? I plan on using it in the AM on M, W & F as it is the 10% version & I don’t want to irritate my skin. Products mentioned:
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary
Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

So... I can't stress this enough: while Niacinamide is a great active and can be used for many purposes this TO Niacinamide + zink is formulated to help wirt an overactive sebum production and active breakouts. So, this product is designed to dry out your skin and tackle pimples. Therefore the Zink and the percentage of Niacinamide is also very high. Many buy it when they hear about Niacinamide's great properties without being aware of the product's purpose. The product is great for those it's designed to help. You have super oily skin, it will probably be awesome. Have you dry skin? Disaster coming!! It says in your profile that you have dry skin. If it's true I will stop using the TO niacinamide and find another one suitable your skin needs
