Niacinamide on Damp Skin? What's the Best Way to Apply It to Help Bleach The Skin??

I wanted to know the best way to use niacinamide serum. Should I apply it to damp or dry skin?

I started mixing my own niacinamide serum, hoping to lighten my complexion. I apply it twice a day after washing my face.

But, does it matter if my skin is damp? Or should it be dry for the best results? Which way will lighten my skin faster?

Also, will it bleach my skin permanently or do I have to keep using it to keep my skin light?


Hi, thanks for your question regarding using niacinamide on damp skin.

Niacinamide works best when applied on damp skin. And there are several reasons why:

First: niacinamide is a water-soluble. This means it's absorbed better in a damp environment.

So applying it on damp skin allows for better penetration, which maximizing its benefits.

Second: Damp skin retains moisture better. By applying niacinamide on damp skin, you can help lock in some of that moisture, which is especially beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated skin.

Third: Niacinamide can cause mild irritation for some people. So, applying it to damp skin can help lower the risk of irritation.

Fourth: Niacinamide can help strengthen the skin's natural protective barrier.

So when you apply it to slightly damp skin, it works better to strengthen the skin's barrier's helping to lock in moisture and keep the skin healthy.

In terms of skin lightning, it can take several months to see results. Of course this depends on how discolored your complexion is.

Also, niacinamide does not bleach the skin. It helps to reduce discoloration which give it a lighter overall, smooth look.

And these results are not permanent.

I hope this helps! 😊
