The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

 

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a bestselling serum from the skincare experts at The Ordinary. Developed to help clear congested complexions and minimise the appearance and severity of blemishes, Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a must-have for oily and acne-prone skin.

 

This high-performance treatment, which is enriched with vitamins and minerals, can help to transform the texture of uneven skin. The serum also helps other treatments to work more effectively for a clearer and less-congested complexion.

 

 

  • Key benefits of The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • High-strength serum for skincare congestion
  • Can be used as part of an anti-acne skincare routine
  • Helps to balance sebum levels
  • Oil-free and non-comedogenic formulation
  • 30ml

 

How does The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% work?

Niacinamide, otherwise known as Vitamin B3, and Zinc are naturally occurring substances in the body. These ingredients are useful in a skincare routine to decongest skin and balance sebum levels. The combination of these two potent ingredients helps to battle blemishes by reducing bacteria on the skin, regulating oil production, and minimising the appearance of pores.

 

Niacinamide improves the skin’s moisture-retention abilities whilst boosting the skin’s natural defense system. Zinc repairs skin damaged by acne and congestion.

 

The high concentrations of both Niacinamide and Zinc in this powerful serum from The Ordinary help to quickly clear up complexions and calm any breakouts.

 

How to use The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a powerful water-based serum that should be introduced carefully into a skincare routine. It should be used only once daily, morning or night, and applied before moisturiser and oil treatments.

 

If you are also using a Vitamin-C-based serum, the Niacinamide and Zinc serum should be applied at the opposite time of day. So if you use vitamin C in the morning, use Niacinamide and Zinc in the evening, as the two can interact negatively with each other.

 

Who is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% suitable for?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is best for those with oily and acne-prone skin. This healing serum can help reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts whilst balancing oil levels.

 

What is the difference between The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and a retinol or salicylic acid treatment for treating acne?

Although The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% contains a combination of powerful ingredients, it can help clear congested skin more gently than both retinol and salicylic acid can. Those with sensitive skin should be cautious when applying retinol and salicylic acid, as they can cause irritation and sensitivity. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not come with these same potential side effects.

 

Retinol and salicylic acid work as peels on the skin, removing a layer of damaged and acne-prone skin cells to reveal a fresher and clearer complexion below. These two ingredients should be used sparingly and introduced into a skincare routine slowly. The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% does not work in the same way, as it simply decongests skin and prevents future breakouts.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for acne?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is an excellent treatment product for clearing up acne, as the serum helps to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts by banishing blemish-forming bacteria. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% also helps to balance sebum production and minimise enlarged pores. All of these actions can dramatically improve the appearance of acne-prone skin.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for scarring and pigmentation?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% can assist in reducing the appearance and severity of scarring and pigmentation. To help with scarring and pigmentation, Niacinamide is best used in a skincare routine alongside vitamin C and retinol.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for rosacea?

Rosacea most commonly affects dry and dehydrated skin, so this serum is not recommended as a rosacea treatment. However, if you have an oily or congested complexion that is prone to rosacea, this product can be used to help balance sebum levels.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% comedogenic?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has been developed to help clear congested skin and is non-comedogenic. It is also oil-free, vegan, and cruelty-free.

 

Is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% good for wrinkles?

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has not been designed to improve ageing skin or wrinkles.

  1. This broke me out

    I was looking for something to help with oily skin. As it says it is key to decreasing oil and resulting pimples. However, this was not the case for me. It broke me out and my pores felt more congested. It also felt really sticky when applying.
  2. Worked well for acne scars

    I'm on to my third bottle of this product! I have oily/acne prone skin and this has helped me reduce redness and scars. I use it at night.
  3. Amazing

    I have combination/oily skin.
    I have used this product in conjunction with their Buffet & Retinol and have had amazing results.
    I honestly wasn't expecting results to be honest due to the low price point but it does what it says.
    I usually get breakouts around my nose/mouth area and since using this morning & night i have had none. It literally stops it in its tracks! My redness has dramatically improved also.
    This is keeper for me.
  4. Extra-ordinary

    I'm 24 and this is the first serum I've ever tried because I wasn't really into skincare before.

    My skin condition: combination skin, a little dry on the chin area, a bit flaky on my upper nose area, and very oily on my nose and upper lip area. I also have big pores, and often have redness.

    I just started exploring various skincare, and I'm hooked by The Ordinary's products, this one in particular. It's not sticky on my skin, absorbed really quick, and my face looks brighter after only a few times use in the morning and before I go to bed. It's very simple yet effective at the same time, at least for my skin type. One thing to note is that this serum can't be combined with Vitamin C at the same time according to my research about the product because apparently people experience breakouts. I use this serum after The Ordinary Glycolic Toning Solution(PM) or PIXI Glow Toner(AM) and so far my skin looks smooth, nice and clean.

    Love!
  5. Worked on 1st bottle but no clear improvement on 2nd one

    With the first bottle, I could see visible results on my post acne inflammation. The serum is non scented and worked great on evening out my skin tone after a few uses. However, as I am on the second bottle, I have not seen similar result. Also the serum slightly peels when used together with facial oil.
  6. Amazing for troubled skin

    This product is truly amazing I use it AM and PM. I have been using it for 2 weeks now and it has significantly reduced the appearance of my pores. I have very oily skin and usually get break outs. I honestly feel like it has helped reduce the oiliness and I haven't had a zit in 2 weeks! The consistency is great, a true serum, it doesn't feel sticky and I use it underneath foundation/concealer everyday!
  7. Highly recommended

    I would highly recommend this product for any skin types! it controls your oil production, reduces acne breakouts. It's absorbed to your skin really well, leaving no residue at all.
  8. Affordable & reliable

    I have had results with this product after daily using for 6 weeks. I have acne localised to my chin & only apply this serum in that area, it turns white once it makes contact with the skin & absorbs easily. You can layer products on top of it which is a bonus!
  9. Just amazing - keeps my skin clear and oil free

    This product is amazing. I will have to keep a stocktake for life. I used to struggle with bad spots and excessive oil in the T zone. This is the only product I've found that tackles both. I wear it daily in the morning underneath my makeup as a part of my skincare routine. It controls my skins naturals oils and keeps my makeup fresh until the end of the day. 5 stars out of 5!
  10. alright

    haven’t seen any clear results yet. hasn’t got rid of my scaring but has reduce my pimples and haven’t got any on my forehead in a while
  11. Made my breakouts worse!

    I didn’t like this product at all. It made my breakouts worse and dried my skin out terribly. Would not recommend.
  12. Pimple free

    I'm in my mid 20’s and have experienced the worst acne for the past few months and relentlessly tried to find products to help with no luck...until a friend recommended The Ordinary range. I’d heard about it so decided to give it a go, specifically this serum. Within about 1 week I noticed a difference. My problem areas are my forehead and t-zone due to oily skin, but the serum reduced oil production whilst wearing it.
    The product itself glides on effortlessly with no tacky residue and no strong scent. I combine it with the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and have recently purchased the Salicylic Acid 2% to try. Very happy and pimple free.
    Also, it’s cheap!!!
  13. Very good

    I have really oily skin and suffer from acne but after the first week of using this my skin has nearly fully cleared up definitely recommend for those who suffer from acne
  14. New Staple in my sensitive, dry skincare routine!

    WOW, this product is a lifesaver! I have a friend with bad cystic acne who uses it, and it is also amazing for my dry, sensitive skin! It helps with congestion, it aids hydration, it's soothing, and best of all it doesn't even cost $10. I am going through this more quickly than my hyaluronic acid because I LOVE it so much! I use it pretty much every AM and PM and have noticed amazing increases in the clearness, dewiness, hydration, and health of my skin. Absolute holy grail serum, I can't believe I didn't try it sooner!
  15. Improves skin

    The Ordinary Niacinamide and Zinc helps improve the appearance of the skin. I apply it at night and it reduces the appearance of blemishes. Great for skin confidence and a great price.
  16. Made my skin worse

    I tried this product after hearing such great things. I had been using skinstitut religiously and cleared my skin to a point I wouldn't wear foundation. But after trying this my skin reverted back and all those tiny little annoying spots came back from one application. Not sure if you're skin is supposed to go through a purging process but I'm not willing to stick it out and see as my skinstitut products cleared my skin right up.
  17. Broke me out

    I had high hopes for this product after reading all the glowing reviews. I have oily and acne prone skin and was hoping this would become my holy grail. Instead, it broke me out in little bumps and whiteheads and irritated my skin. This went straight to the thrash.
  18. Really great product!

    I really like this product. You only need to use about two drops so it last months! I use it at night time and my skin seems to be improving (redness, smoothness). I have dry/combination skin. I have just purchased my second bottle of this!
  19. Seems to refine pores

    I’ve been using this for a week and my skin does look more refined and I think brighter? Love the jelly texture and easily goes under makeup without effecting it’s wear.
  20. All the hype is true...

    After initially learning about The Ordinary Brand I was eager to try what seemed to be their most widely revered product. As someone who has suffered with adult cystic acne for many years with countless different products, I was hoping to strike some gold.

    This simple combination has changed my life for the better. I currently use this product twice a day and have seen a drastic decrease in not only the amount of pimples but also the severity.

    When I initially started this product I used sparingly once a day. Until i was comfortable I had given my skin time to get used to it. At first I didn't see a drastic improvement but perseverance is key!
