Various forms of Vitamin B are used in skincare, to help tackle different skin concerns. The main forms of Vitamin B you’ll see in skincare are Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) and Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid).
These ingredients all have their own individual benefits, and you’ll often find them in a ‘complex’, so you can benefit from several different forms of Vitamin B.
These ingredients work to control oil production, offer a brightening effect, even out the skin tone, deeply hydrate the skin, and encourage the repair of skin damage – among many other benefits.
Our team put together some of their favourite Vitamin B products for you here:
“I’m a working mum of two children under 3, so sleep is a luxury, and my skin really shows the signs of lack of sleep.
Dehydration and fine lines have haunted me for a while, so a hydration boost every morning and night is a key part of my (quick) skincare routine.
This Aspect serum is lightweight, non greasy, and quickly soaks into my skin giving it a fabulous drink. A pea sized amount applied to the skin, morning and night, really makes a huge difference and provide a solid base for my SPF and foundation.
I’d recommend this product for absolutely everyone! Hydrated skin equals a fresher, more youthful, glowing complexion.”
“I have now gone through 2 bottles of asap’s super b complex, and my skin has never looked so radiant!
I’ve started to notice a big reduction in the redness on my cheeks, which makes me excited to keep using this product and see what happens – also the skin above my cheek bones near my eyes is super clear.
I would pretty much recommend this product for all skin types especially someone looking for age prevention and clearing up redness. It’s also kept my skin feeling super hydrated and plump!”
“After searching for a serum with a high concentration of Niacinamide for months, I stumbled across this one by The Ordinary and absolutely fell in love.
It helps to reduce congestion I have, I don’t find that my skin is getting as oily in certain areas, and I’ve noticed an improvement in my acne scars – they’re fading a lot faster now that I’m using this serum.
I would recommend this serum for anyone experiencing congestion, breakout related redness and hyperpigmentation from breakouts looking to see an improvement with minimal irritation.”
