Today we have the COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum to talk about its heroic deed of reducing stubborn melasma and helping to achieve that healthy skin! So, gear up to see the results of our customer. But before that lets know what melasma is in simple terms.
Melasma is the spots or dark patches of spots that appear on the skin which results in unevenness of skin tone. It is a type of hyperpigmentation which is also called the ‘mask of pregnancy,’ as it can mostly appear during pregnancy due to hormonal imbalance. However, it can also be caused due to over exposure to the sun. It mostly develops on the area around your cheeks, upper lip area and forehead.
Melasma is quite a common skin problem, which is not harmful or dangerous nevertheless, there is no denial that it might affect us psychologically and cause emotional distress due to the lack of confidence in one’s appearance.
To treat dark spots and melasma, there are a number of topical ingredients like vitamin c, retinol, arbutin, AHA’s, niacinamide, etc. In this blog post, let’s look at the ‘star’ ingredient niacinamide and how The Niacinamide 15 Serum by COSRX helped customers achieve healthy skin while reducing dark spots and melasma.
Lipongla’s testimonial on The Niacinamide 15 Serum by COSRX
I am a teacher by profession, and it was when the pandemic hit that my skin became worse. It has been a long ride with my melasma journey ever since.
Pandemic was a cruel era for all of us, I guess, in one way or the other. Even for my skin, this period marked the worsening of my melasma, as I was having back-to-back classes online for seven to eight hours. I was at the comfort of my home with my busy schedule and did not give time for myself, especially my skin. This is why self-love and taking some time out of your schedule is very important, even if it might be just a 10-15 minutes of daily skincare routine. This ritual will help keep your skin healthy.
A small gesture of love to your skin will help you big time! That’s what I have learned throughout my skincare journey. Anyway, my melasma was getting from bad to worse by this time and that’s when a friend of mine urged me to take care of my skin. This really hit me hard. So, I went on a quest of finding the right product for my skin. That’s when I reached out to Beauty Barn, and they suggested a list of products for my skin. I used a bunch of products and used it religiously. The combination of products and the consistency in the usage really helped me get rid of my stubborn melasma.
Out of all the products I’ve used, the one that stood out was (and still is) the Cosrx Niacinamide 15 serum, the star serum that marvelously reduced my melasma. The Cosrx Niacinamide 15 serum consists of 15% niacinamide, is an amazing antioxidant that helps skin from environmental damages, boosts collagen production, reduces dark spots and strengthens skin barrier. It also has Zinc Pca which helps soothe the skin and reduce skin inflammation. This is just the ‘it’ serum for my skin. It has really improved the hyperpigmentation situation on my face, and I can really see the difference!
It has a bit of viscosity, has no scent, absorbs within seconds and feels light on my skin. I had no irritation and worked quite well with my other skincare products.
So, if you have skin concerns like melasma, I will highly recommend The Niacinamide 15 Serum by COSRX.
Viboli’s testimonial on COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum
I’ve been having skin concerns like melasma for years and this year I was so keen to embark on my journey for beautiful and healthy skin! This led me to discovering my holy grail product, the COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum.
It’s been a journey with my skin, with trying out different products and failing to get rid of my melasma. However, from April of this year, on the suggestion of the skincare consultant at ‘Beauty Barn’, I was able to stumble upon this amazing niacinamide serum from COSRX – COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum.
I will say that the COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum did not promise overnight miracles, but it definitely gave a gradual and notable improvement. I could see that my melasma was fading and becoming less visible. I will also say that the serum helped improve the overall texture of my skin, making my skin look smooth and healthy.
As for the texture, the COSRX The Niacinamide 15 Serum has this amazing lightweight consistency that absorbs amazingly and quickly on the skin. It sips really well on my skin and does not leave my skin feeling greasy and heavy, which I absolutely love. I just have to use 3-4 drops for my entire face and that’s it! I can see that my melasma has reduced and my skin feels brighter now.
I cannot recommend this product enough if you have melasma like me!
