I was a bit hesitant at first when I learned that I will be reviewing a new skincare product for my face. I have a confession to make: Although I am skincare junkie, I’m a bit lazy putting on sunscreen lotion. So at my age, I knew that the early signs of aging are probably screaming on my face—crow’s feet, laugh lines—name it, I probably have them all. And upon learning that Latisha Professional Formula Niacinamide Vitamin B with 5% Serum(the product in which I’d be reviewing) has anti-aging properties, I decided to give it a go.
Lightens skin, helps remove dark spots, reduces fine lines.
Niacinamide suppresses melanin from reaching the surface of the skin and protects the skin from further UV damage too much melanin can result in age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation. 5% niacinamide when applied to skin for 12 weeks results in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. It also improves elasticity and gives an overall lighter skin complexion.

Use after toner, apply the serum with fingertips on face and neck. Once it is quickly absorbed, follow with a moisturizer. Wear sunscreen, it is equally important. My dermatologist said it is considered a “mortal sin” for anyone to go out without wearing or putting on a sunblock or sunscreen. In fact, some people, even within indoors, they still put on sunscreen. This is especially true since we’re no longer as young as we once were. As a certified Titas of Manila, we need to give our skin some TLC before they wrinkled and sagged.
How Niacinamide Helps Skin
I'm no skin expert. But based solely on experience, niacinamide is an ingredient worthy of your attention and your skin will love you for using it. Among a handful of other amazing skincare ingredients such as retinol and vitamin C, Latisha Niacinamide Serum is a standout because of its versatility for almost any skin care concern and skin type.

The conclusions about niacinamide are based on what the published research has shown to be true—and the research about niacinamide unanimously demonstrates how special it is. In fact, second to retinol and vitamin C, it’s one of the most exciting skincare ingredients around!
What exactly is Niacinamide?
Also known as vitamin B3 and nicotinamide, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly improve the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and a weakened surface.
But niacinamide doesn't stop there! It also reduces the damage environmental attack can cause. Left unchecked, this type of daily assault makes skin appear older, dull, and less radiant.
Why You Should Use Niacinamide?
As I have gathered on my own research and also on what I had personally experienced with Latisha Niacinamide Serum, I’m very impressed with what niacinamide can do for our skin when applied via skincare products like toners, serums, moisturizers, and specialized solutions. In my case, I used the Latisha Niacinamide Vitamin B5 5% Serum brand. Niacinamide is uniquely compatible with any of the products in your skincare routine, including those that contain retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHAs BHA, and all types of antioxidants. For someone with highly sensitive skin, I am happy that it works well with me too. It’s got none of the itchy after feel I used to experience in other skin care products.
You can use multiple niacinamide-containing products in your routine and it will still be non-sensitizing as this ingenious B vitamin is well tolerated by all skin types, even temperamental skin.
Another helpful benefit of Lathisha Niacinamide serum is that it can help renew and restore the surface of skin against moisture loss and dehydration. In fact, topical application of niacinamide has been shown to boost the hydrating ability of moisturizers so skin’s surface learns to become better at resisting moisture loss that leads to recurrent dry, tight, flaky skin.
How to Use Niacinamide?
Using niacinamide is as easy as finding great skincare products that contain it along with other beneficial ingredients like antioxidants, skin-restoring agents, and additional skin-replenishing ingredients.

This cocktail approach to skincare is important because as great as niacinamide is for skin, it’s not the only ingredient skin needs to look and feel its best. Think of it like your diet—as healthy as kale is, if kale was all you ate, you’d soon become malnourished because your body needs more than one healthy food to maintain itself. The same is true for skin, the body’s largest (and most exposed) organ!
For best results, look for Latisha Niacinamide Serum because it’s a leave-on products and easy to apply. I use it twice a day, that means I apply the Latisha Niacinamide Serum solution as part of my morning routine, before sunscreen, and I still give my skin more niacinamide at night from my serum before I sleep. Experiment to see what works best for you. But it’s what I do for my own beauty routine.
You can use niacinamide-containing products around your eyes, too! I find myself applying Latiasha Niacinamide Serum under the dark circles of my eyes and it helps improve the look of circles and lessens my “mukhang puyat” look and it also helps soften the appearance of crow’s feet, not to mention enabling this delicate area retain skin-smoothing moisture and resist loss of firmness!

How much is the Latisha Niacinamide Serum?
Oh dear, I’ve often been asked this question after I had shared my experience in using Latisha Niacinamide Serum. Since it’s really an effective product, do not expect it to come cheap. I’m not saying it’s not affordable because you’d be surprised that it is. I know that P750 per bottle may not exactly be spare change for many, but when you come to think of it, it’s a pretty good skin investment. Depending on your usage, you can actually use an entire bottle for like two months like I did.

There’s no reason to wait to add Latisha Niacinamide Serum to your skincare routine. This wonderfully versatile B vitamin brings many topical benefits to improve skin’s appearance so it appears more even, brighter, and younger—especially if you’re diligent about protecting skin daily with a broad spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
