I adore products with niacinamide because I'm sadly acne-prone and that pretty much means I have inflammation and hyperpigmentation on my face at any given time. As many of us know, this awesome ingredient works to heal breakouts faster and lighten the dark aftermath. It gives me a leg up in the never-ending race to conquer my troubled skin which lately I'm finally gaining on.
Ever since introducing BHA and tretinoin into my skincare routine my complexion has made huge strides in appearing calmer, less spotty and just plain smoother! =) However, the battle is not over because I still get breakouts around that special time of the month (harumph) and I'm still sensitive enough that using the wrong skincare product can make my face sprout angry fist-shaking bumps... sigh (more on that later).
