Vitamin B vs Vitamin C

Niacinamide and Vitamin C are some of my favourite skincare ingredients! They are great powerhouses that work well individually and even better when used together 🙌🏻 When used together, they complement each other's multitude of benefits and result in a powerful combination. Niacinamide and Vitamin C have many overlapping benefits but they both have slightly different mechanisms of action, so you're addressing the issue from various angles. For example, both are key ingredients for fading hyperpigmentation and brightening overall skin tone. However, Vitamin C works by inhibiting tyrosinase (enzyme in the production of melanin) while niacinamide is thought to prevent the transfer of melanin (pigment) within cells. If you're thinking of using both niacinamide and vitamin C together, you can either look for one product that contains both or layer them separately! ✨What are some of your favourite products? ✨ 🌸 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dr.crystallee
