Dr. Geeta Yadav is a board-certified dermatologist and the founder of Skin Science Dermatology in Toronto, ON. Deeply passionate about both general and cosmetic dermatology, she is available to speak to a wide range of topics, including conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, adult acne, and hair loss; skin cancer prevention and surgery; aesthetics, including skincare, injectables, and energy-based devices; and the treatment of skin of color/BIPOC patients.
In addition to being in skin-care and supplement form, vitamin B-3 can be found as niacinamide in animal products, like meat, and as nicotinic acid in plant-based options like seeds and leafy greens. Niacinamide is a powerhouse ingredient and a favorite of mine and many other dermatologists. It has been shown to protect against ultraviolet damage that can cause skin cancers, calms redness and inflammation, [and] helps reduce itch and retain moisture in the skin.4 October 2021
