Why I agree with this Tiktok famous Dermatologist
According to Dr. Shah (the Tiktok famous dermatologist with 12.2 million followers), Retinol and Niacinamide are the power couple and should always be used together.
Using Niacinamide and Retinol together puts skin on the fast track for impressive results. Their combined use is recommended due to the way niacinamide keeps skin calm and hydrated while retinol works its wrinkle-fighting magic. They do work in different yet complementary ways!

I agree with him and made Aging Backwards which combines this power couple of Retinol and Niacinamide in one jar making it the best night cream. I went one step ahead and packed it with Glycerine, Aloe Vera, and the king of all oils: Squalane Oil (I think I went 5 steps ahead!)
The Benefits of Using Retinol & Niacinamide in Tandem
The reason why this is the ultimate combination that you should look for when searching for the best night creamor the best night serum is because while Retinol is the gold standard in anti-agingit can cause sensitivity and irritation. This can all be counted by using Niacinamide along with Retinol.
Niacinamide strengthens the skin’s barrier while simultaneously calming reactivity in the skin. In essence, this helps the skin be more receptive to Retinol without the irritating effects that come with it. Retinol helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while reducing premature sun damage.
Niacinamide acts as a buffer to the potential irritation caused by Retinol. It also brightens, soothes, improves discoloration, hyperpigmentation and is an acne scar treatment.
Adding to that, these ingredients do an amazing job of neutralizing the damaging effects of environmental stressors that try to invade the skin. Both take unique pathways to improve uneven skin tone and brighten dull skin.
Simply put, using these ingredients together strengthens the benefits each provides.
In short, this is the world's most hardworking Retinol which combines these elements and works all night thanks to its encapsulated technology making it the best Retinol night cream.
How to use Retinol and Niacinamide Together
Start with clean, towel-dried skin (and if you use a toner and/or exfoliant, do those steps first).
Our Aging Backwards Night Cream brings you the benefits of both ingredients packed in one jar.
Make sure to follow with broad-spectrum sun protection during the day.
When to Use Retinol and Niacinamide
When using Retinol and Niacinamide in the same skincare routine, they should be applied in your PM skincare routine because Retinol can cause sensitivity to the sun.
Although you are applying these products at night, it is VERY important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 40 or higher the following morning. We recommend that you use Ohh Sunny sunscreen by Sabbskin.
Conclusion – Niacinamide and Retinol: Better Together!
While Niacinamide and Retinol offer multiple skincare benefits on their own, when used together, you really ramp up their effectiveness and minimize Retinol’s side effects, including skin irritation, redness, and skin peeling issues.
