The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% is a targeted treatment to reduce the appearance of blemishes and congestion for brighter, clearer skin.

Why you need it

The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has been specially formulated to reduce the appearance of blemishes and clarify congested skin. The high concentration of Niacinamide (also known as Vitamin B3) is combined with Zinc to balance skin's sebum production and in turn improve skin's elasticity by boosting collagen production. Niacinamide also helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged and visible pores thanks to its ability to help restore skin's elasticity. Its ability to help firm and tighten skin can also help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Key Ingredients

Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3, niacinamide has a myriad of benefits. It helps in strengthening the skin's barrier function, reducing the appearance of pores, regulating oil production, and minimizing redness and irritation. Moreover, it has brightening properties which can help fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Zinc PCA: This ingredient not only controls sebum production but also acts as an antimicrobial agent, which can be particularly beneficial for acne-prone skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties can soothe redness and irritation.

Q: What is The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%?
A: It is a high-strength serum formulated with vitamins and minerals that targets multiple skin concerns, such as blemishes, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. The main ingredients, niacinamide and zinc, work synergistically to reduce sebum activity and provide clearer, refined skin.

Q: How do I incorporate this serum into my routine?
A: After cleansing and toning, apply a few drops to your face in the AM and PM. It's water-based, so it should be applied before heavy creams or oil-based products.

Q: How does niacinamide benefit the skin?
A: Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, can help visibly improve enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and dullness. It's also known to strengthen the skin's barrier function and reduce sebum production.

Q: What role does the Zinc play in this formula?
A: Zinc PCA helps to reduce sebum activity, which can help prevent blemishes and give the skin a clearer appearance.

Q: Is this product suitable for sensitive skin?
A: Generally, niacinamide is well-tolerated by all skin types. However, those with sensitive skin should always conduct a patch test when introducing a new product.

Q: Can I use this serum with vitamin C?
A: There are mixed opinions on this. Some believe niacinamide and vitamin C may neutralize each other, making both less effective. Others believe they can be used together without issue. To be on the safe side, consider using them at different times (e.g., vitamin C in the morning and niacinamide at night).

Q: Will this serum make my skin dry?
A: No, niacinamide itself is not drying. However, the zinc in the formula might be slightly drying for some people, especially if used in large amounts or alongside other drying products. Always follow up with a moisturizer.

Q: Can I use this product alongside other treatments from The Ordinary?
A: Yes, the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum can be layered with most other products. Just ensure you are layering correctly, from thinnest to thickest texture.

Q: How long does it take to see results?
A: Results can vary depending on individual skin concerns and conditions. However, with consistent use, some people notice changes within a few weeks.
