I am always trying out new serums but seem to keep coming back to these ones!

I know that some of you are trying out dupes to the Ferulic and Phloretin serums from other brands that are less expensive. Please let me know what your experiences are as I would be curious to try and compare. In the meantime:

You can find SkinCeuticals at this link – Dermstore periodically and quite often run a 20% discount on this brand so look out for it!

Although it’s never too early for prevention and to start good skincare habits, you really don’t need serums this powerful in your early 20s if you don’t have problematic skin.

Niacin Vitamin B3 – High Yield Review

In this video I have explained all high yield points about niacin vitamin B3. Niacin deficiency causes pellagra with 3 D’s diarrhea, dermatitis and dementia.

NADP and NAD are coenzymes for many dehydrogenases, participating in many hydrogen transfer processes. NAD is important in catabolism of fat, carbohydrate, protein, and alcohol, as well as cell signaling and DNA repair, and NADP mostly in anabolism reactions such as fatty acid and cholesterol synthesis.High energy requirements (brain) or high turnover rate (gut, skin) organs are usually the most susceptible to their deficiency. Although the two are identical in their vitamin activity, nicotinamide does not have the same pharmacological effects (lipid modifying effects) as niacin. Nicotinamide does not reduce cholesterol or cause flushing. As the precursor for NAD and NADP, niacin is also involved in DNA repair.

Severe deficiency of niacin in the diet causes the disease pellagra, which is characterized by diarrhea, dermatitis, and dementia, as well as Casal’s necklace lesions on the lower neck, hyperpigmentation, thickening of the skin, inflammation of the mouth and tongue, digestive disturbances, amnesia, delirium, and eventually death, if left untreated. Common psychiatric symptoms of niacin deficiency include irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression. Studies have indicated that, in patients with alcoholic pellagra, niacin deficiency may be an important factor influencing both the onset and severity of this condition. Patients with alcoholism typically experience increased intestinal permeability, leading to negative health outcomes.
