Is The Content Of Niacinamide And Glutathione Safe For The Skin?
Hello. I want to ask, I’ve used skin care products that contain niacinamide on my face, and it feels like my skin is getting dry (my skin is actually oily). So I want to ask, is it safe to use products with ingredients from these two, thank you.
Hi Lisa, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
A naturally white face is indeed the dream of all women, therefore there are many women who try to whiten their facial skin in various ways, for example using face creams that contain whitening, such as niacinamide and glutathione. Niacinamide and Glutathione are substances that are widely used to make skin whitening products, because these two substances are believed to whiten the skin, moisturize the skin, and scavenge free radicals or as antioxidants. However, these two substances have not been allowed by the BPOM, because they are still debating their safety and dangers for the body, but the drug and food control agency in America has decreased to these two substances that can interfere with kidney function, therefore it would be better to avoid cosmetics that contain these substances. Dry skin that you experience, the possible cause apart from the use of face creams containing niacinamide and glutathione, can also be caused by:
Lack of fluids or dehydration Effects of hot weather, resulting in direct sun exposure Too often washing your face Irritation Effects of food If your skin is dry and red, scaly and painful or sore, you should consult a dermatologist, so that the doctor can provide treatment for your facial skin.
Some suggestions for you to keep your facial skin clean and healthy
Diligently clean your face, but don't drink too often Drink lots of water and eat lots of vegetables and fruits Use sunscreen when going out of the house Avoid caffeine and alcoholic drinks Thank you, hopefully useful. dr.Nurmarwiyah
