Niacinamide – Tewl -Hydration – Stratum Corneum

Facial Serums or moisturizers containing Niacinamide improve skin barrier and has benefits for people with rosacea. A clinical study proved that Niacinamide improves the stratum  corneum barrier function and actual hydration on the face.  So what is this corneum barrier function anyway?
Your skin has a primary function of protecting the body from unwanted influences of the environment. The main barrier of the skin is located in the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum.
Your stratum corneum consists of corneocytes which are surrounded by lipid sections.  It is a compact layer of cells and lipids that has two critical functions: it protects our bodies from bacteria, UV damage and other assaults; and prevents natural moisture from escaping, to keep skin hydrated
Dry skin is a very common skin disorder that is due to a reduction of stratum corneum hydration, increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL), and a loss of the skin elasticity.
A very confusing topic is:  “what is the difference between hydration and moisture?” The answer is really quite simple, but so many people get it wrong and treat their skin incorrectly, thus a negative result/outcome.  Simply put, dehydrated skin lacks water and therefore needs to be hydrated. Dry skin lacks oil and needs to be moisturized. It is important to distinguish between these two skin conditions because they can often be treated incorrectly.
Dehydrated Skin – Does your skin feel dry, flakes, or is it itchy or irritated,  sensitive, your skin would be considered dehydrated. Environment, hormones, diet and skin care product usage are all factors that impact skin hydration.
Dry Skin – If you have ashy, parched skin, chances are it is not producing enough oil. Production levels vary from person to person but more importantly our bodies produce less and less oil as we age.
Niacinamide plays an important role in our daily skin care routine! Everything about your skin is better when the epidermal lipid barrier is functioning at its peak. Your lipid barrier (acid mantle) helps retain moisture, keeps it hydrated for longer and will protect your skin from invasions and harshness of environment. Niacinamide will increase the production of ceramides (an essential part of your lipid barrier), keeping the skin strong and preventing TEWL, which is also known as Trans Epidermal Water loss.
