Get To Know The ‘Mide’ Sisters: Niacinamide, Ceramide and Peptide.
Anyone else feel a little overwhelmed by the labels and ingredients lists on skincare products? Me too! With all the new and trending ingredients that pop up every week it’s hard to know what your skin needs. One of our fave free from nasties brand, Natio, uses so many skin loving ingredients in their products so we wanted to deep dive into a few of our favourite ingredients and how it plays a role in helping you achieve your best skin.
Niacinamide is commonly known as B. It’s water-soluble vitamin that works with your skin to help visibly minimise pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften lines and wrinkles, and diminish dullness. Niacinamide works to reduce the environmental damage because of its ability to improve skins barrier and also play a role in helping skin to repair signs of past damage. Niacinamide is a wonder ingredient as it helps renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration. The Intensive Moisturising Night Cream deeply hydrates, nourishes and rejuvenates your skin while you sleep. Nourishing plant oils and extracts promote supple skin and smoothed fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful, rested-looking complexion.
Ceramides are lipids (fats) that are found naturally in high concentrations in the layers or our skin. They play a vital role in how your skin looks, as well as helping to retain moisture, improve the protective barrier and keep skins appearance firm and plump. Ceramides are considered “skin-replenishing” ingredients because they’re naturally a part of your skin. Ceramides are ideal for all skin types—even the most sensitive, breakout-prone, or oily skin. A favourite of ours that keeps the skins appearance firm and plum is the Natio Rosewater and Chamomile Gentle Skin Toner Face Mist. Infused with natural essential oils to help soothe, firm, purify and tighten pores. The convenient micro-fine spray bottle allows quick and easy refreshment – anywhere, anytime.
Amino acids or Plant Peptides are essentially fragments of proteins. Peptides essentially help reduce the loss of firmness, appearance or wrinkles, and texture changes. It helps skin bounce back as it once did, appearing more supple and bouncy. When Peptides are matched with Hyaluronate this powerhouse duo help to restore skin natural moisture. The Natio Ageless Firming Night Cream features this top-notch combination.
