I used the hyaluronic acid and niacinamide serum for six months. I started adding both serums to my morning and evening routine, and I can say that my skin texture was slightly better.
Then, I tested each product separately to see how they (hyaluronic acid or niacinamide) would react on my skin. In the end, I could compare each product and how they reacted.
Keep reading because I’ll share everything with you; no sugar-coating is guaranteed!
Can You Use Hyaluronic Acid And Niacinamide Together?
Yes. Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid are water-based treatments that complementing each other’s hydrating effects. You’ll find a variety of cosmetics that contain both ingredients in their formulations.
When mixed, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid can improve the overall aspect of your skin, leaving it rejuvenated and minimizing lines and other signs of aging.
I used both ordinary niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, together and separately. I tested Hyaluronic acid solely for 15 days, and even though the results were not tremendous, they were somewhat visible.
However, when I tested the Niacinamide separately, I did not experience any significant impact.
Which one was better?
Hyaluronic acid surprisingly improved my skin texture, while the niacinamide serum, in my opinion, did not bring significant results. I have oily skin, and If I had to choose between these two products, I would select hyaluronic acid.
