Sure, aging is truly unavoidable but we don\’t have to be left defenseless and needs to act fast to help minimize the first sign of skin aging 😉. They say that the best time to start using anti-aging products can be as early as 21… but regardless, the most important thing to consider is finding the right product for your skin type.
I personally choose to fight skin aging before I hit the 30\’s. Now, 6 years later I\’m still on the roll and have develop a good skincare habit that requires discipline and determination. Hah! Yes, discipline. While putting on night creams, sunscreens, moisturizing creams etc., or incorporating a 3 to 10- step Korean skin care routine can be a tedious task, keep in mind that it is worth investing.
Weeks ago, I received an invite to try this Skin Lightening and Anti-Aging product, the Latisha Niacinamide Serum. I\’m familiar about the goodness of Niacinamide or Vitamin B3, so I immediately agreed and happy to discover a product that I can add up to my skin care regimen.
- Lightens Skin
Niacinamide is a first-rate solution to pigmentation control without the harmful side effects commonly associated with many other skin lightening agents.
- Reduces Dark Spots
As a skin lightening agent, niacinamide effectively reduces areas of jagged pigmentation and age spots.
- Diminishes Fine Lines
Niacinamide increases hydration levels. The end result is skin that is softer, smoother, and less prone to irritation, redness, and sensitivity.
I have normal skin type and doesn\’t have much of skin issues such as blemishes or acne. My only concern was to fight skin aging, improve skin texture through hydration plus skin lightening.
I \’m currently on my 3-Step Korean Skin care routine that aims to have translucent, poreless, and more youthful looking skin and somehow learned that layering skin care products in correct order is the key to maximize its effectiveness.
So here goes my ideal order:
- Toner (Althea Primer Water for me!)
- Serum – Enters Niacinamide
- Eye Cream
- Moisturizer – (Fixer Cream)
I actually have other fave cleansers, luxurious cream mask, and massage pack, that I occasionally use depending on my skin needs at the moment. Knowing what ingredients that can best soothes my skin at a particular time serves as my guide on what and when to use it.
As for Niacinamide, this one\’s uniquely compatible with any of the products in my skincare routine, including those that contain retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHAs BHA, and all types of antioxidants. That is why having this product with excellent ingredient I know can give a high boost on moisture effect and keeping the skin smooth.
This is designed for everyday use underneath moisturizer and sunscreen.
The most helpful benefit of Niacinamide is that it can help renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration.
I\’m beginning to love this product because it\’s fast absorbing, lightweight and non-sticky. It doesn\’t have a luxurious scent though but still okay because I will still lock it with moisturizer and my ever staying BB cream with SPF.
This is recommended for long term use and a permanent must have for healthy looking skin. I think this 60ml pump bottle can last up to 2-3 months. Enough to visibly notice improvement on appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, dullness, and a weakened skin surface.
