I have heard that Niacinamide has been used effectively to treat inflammation and mild acne. I'm curious to hear any further testimony, good or bad. Also, is Niacinamide simply vitamin B3?

Re: Niacinamide?

i think there's different forms of the vitamin b3 (niaciamide being one of them).

it has /not/ been known to help acne when taken orally. you need to apply it topically w/ a base (aloe gel works well). just get some pills and grind them up (coffee grinder...or just smash them with something until they're in a powder form....or you may be able to find a powder form of the pill)

then every night before you go to bed mix it in w/ some aloe vera, and apply it to the affected area.
