A dream come true for oily skin, this potent serum targets breakouts, minimises pores and decongests confused complexions by regulating sebum production. Featuring high concentrations of two of the most efficacious blemish-battling ingredients out there (niacinamide and zinc), this swiftly soothes skin and improves its overall health.
Harnessing the (anything but ordinary) power of niacinamide and zinc – with a surprisingly small price tag – this potent serum is perfect for combatting blemishes, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. A must-have for battling breakouts, The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% regulates sebum production to minimise pores and reduce blemish-causing bacteria, keeping your complexion clear, calm and collected. A superlative skin improver, niacinamide boosts the skin’s immunity and improves moisture retention, while a brilliant shot of zinc PCA works to repair damaged skin and promote the creation of collagen.
The Ordinary Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) is indicated to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and congestion. A high 10% concentration of this vitamin is supported in the formula by zinc salt of pyrrolidone carboxylic acid to balance visible aspects of sebum activity.
Independent studies suggest Niacinamide is also an effective ingredient for brightening skin tone.
Contraindications: If topical Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid and/or Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid) is used as part of skincare, it should be applied at alternate times with this formula (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and this formula in the AM). Otherwise, Niacinamide can affect integrity of the Vitamin C.
Notes: While Niacinamide and Zinc PCA reduce the look of blemishes and balance visible sebum activity, neither is a treatment for acne. For persistent acne-related conditions, we recommend the use of Benzoyl Peroxide and/or Retinoic Acid. We do not recommend ongoing use of BHA such as Salicylic Acid for persistent blemishes. For temporary improvement in appearance of blemishes, Salicylic Acid would help. This formulation can be used alongside acne treatments if desired for added visible skin benefits.
Apply to entire face morning and evening before heavier creams.
