While you can definitely skip the toner in your skincare routine, adding one that has an active ingredient (and, thus, gives targeted results to your skin woes) is something you should definitely consider. If you’ve been eyeing a toner with niacinamide as an active, here’s a quick guide to help you better learn whether or not it’s for you.
What is a niacinamide toner and what is it good for?
A niacinamide toner is a toner whose hero ingredient is, of course, niacinamide.
What’s this ingredient? Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3, which has been proven to many skin-nourishing benefits including hydration and smoothening.
Should I put niacinamide on my face everyday?
If you wish to, you definitely can put a niacinamide-enriched product on your facial skin everyday — even twice a day — because it’s a gentle ingredient. But, of course, doing a patch test to see if you won’t have any negative reaction to it before making it a staple in your routine is still definitely a must.
