Niacinamide - When to Use?

I’ve been meaning doing research about this product. Would anyone know when to use it in a skincare routine? I am using it in the AM after SPF but not sure if that ends up mimizing its effects. What would you recommend for optimal results? Any other insights on this topic would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance ♥️ Edit: Thanks to everyone recommending to use BEFORE SPF and I have incorporated that adaptation. Will keep the thread updated with my results!

Niacinamide does not negative affect other actives, so you can use it whenever you want 😊 Just make sure to know what concentration works for you as it can be irritating above 5%. I hope this helps!
