Reduce Age Spots and Skin Discoloration Naturally

imagesSaving Face Cream now has Niacinamide (vitamin B)

Not surprisingly, since we live in Florida, Second Nature Skin gets more requests for help with age spots and skin discoloration than anything else. Skin cancer and photo aging from long term sunlight exposure are serious issues in Florida.

While we offer a safe, gentle sunscreen (Sun Patrol SPF 30), we wanted take our skin care to the next level and help people with skin discoloration. We’re committed to developing natural, safe and gentle products, so we shun synthetic chemicals in skin lighteners like hydroquinone, which can have nasty side effects.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B) has been proven safe and effective by recently published scientific studies. It helps reduce and prevent age spots by inhibiting the transfer of melanin (pigment cells) to the outer layers of our skin. And that’s not all. Studies also show niacinamide softens fine lines and promotes skin elasticity.

We couldn’t wait to adopt it. We’re now using niacinamide in our Saving Face cream, a shea-butter based product for dry skin that now – with Mother Nature’s guidance – is even more luscious than before.

*Studies show that niacinamide:

  • Helps reduce the formation and appearance of age spots, skin discoloration and blotchiness
  • Reduces skin water loss and increases hydration
  • Is an anti-inflammatory that reduces the redness from rosacea, acne and psoriasis
  • Minimizes fine lines and promotes skin elasticity
  • Is safe, gentle and non-toxic. Niacinamide is found in natural sources like plants.

*July 2011 double-blind study published in Dermatology Research and Practice. It may take two months before the effects become noticeable.
